This year me and the boys planted a huge vegetable garden. While they were troopers helping me plant it neither one has helped maintain it which no big deal. Tonight me and Austin went out to pick some of cherry tomatoes and noticed a big yellow zucchini. This was my first year growing the yellow so Austin wasn't familiar with it. He said look mom that zucchini has autism. I was like oh lord what is he talking about now. He said "Its different it has to be autistic" I played along and said your right, know what else? It tastes better than the green ones because its special. He had the biggest smile. Later on I replayed the conversation in my brain and it makes sense. Austin knows he's different and we have talked about autism but he's having a hard time understanding what it all means and how it relates to him. The fact that he identified it with being different, and no less important, or just as good makes me smile. So tomorrow we are having an autistic zucchini for dinner!
