Abez sez Assalamualaikum!

Islam, Autism, Mom-ism.


And later he told me that he had a race car bed, but I don’t think I believe him.

Sometimes your eyes are sleepy but your brain is awake. And that’s why it’s past midnight and I’m on the computer. (Sorry HF, I tried!) And I will probably just put in half an hour of trying to figure out my shiny new wordpress theme at AutismUAE.com, but first, something I want to remember.

Khalid and I went to Ace Hardware today. We were browsing through the garden section, and Khalid found a swing and sat down. So I sat down next to him and we starting swinging. Then he laid down and put his head in my lap. And I looked and him and said “Hey, what’s your name?”

And he said Khalid.

And I pointed to myself and asked, “What’s my name?”

And he answered the same- Khalid.

And I said “No, my name is Momma!”

And he looked at me and said “Momma. I know.”

And that was amazing. You may not understand why. And I don’t think I can explain it. But I don’t want to forget it. SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi.
