Mommy has a sick day
I do not get sick often. This past Thursday I got sick. It felt like stomach flu. Not pleasant at all.
My husband thankfully was home that day. I went to relax and then took a nap.
As I was falling to sleep I hear Adrian. He is waiting for daddy to make him lunch and is talking about mommy being sick.
He says very sweetly “daddy mommy is sick, she vomited and her tummy hurts. We need to take care of her like she takes care of me”. Then daddy asks Adrian how he could take care of mommy “soup and leaving her alone so she can sleep”.
I wake up to “mommy your awake. Do you feel better?” with a sweet kid like that how could I not?
Then he starts talking about the time he vomited all over his room and mommy had to scrub it clean.
And people say no child with Autism can understand oh they don’t have feelings and they can’t think like us. I’m pretty sure our son would prove any doubters wrong in an instant.
He has thoughts, feelings and can show empathy just like any other child alive. Different, not less than!
