Me: Khalid, can you give Musfira one of your chips please?
-Khalid looks into bag-
Khalid: I’m sorry, I don’t have any more.
Me: (Sappy happy grin)
Khalid: Did you know, the trains in Train Conductor 2 run in New York!
Me: New York?
Khalid: Yeah, not old York, New York. That’s funny!
Me: Khalid, did you take a shower?
Me: When? You already showered today?
Me: You need to go shower Khalid.
Khalid: -whining and getting off of computer- But I took a shower last week!
I put on a ‘stern’ face and lead Khalid to the shower, laughing with joy on the inside. SubhanAllahi Wabihamdihi- Khalid is still far from neurotypical, but he’s so far from where he’s come that sometimes I can’t believe there’s anything wrong with him. There’s nothing wrong with him, really. It’s everyone else who has the problem adjusting to his innocent oddness. I adore him, I really do. Alhamdulillah.
