Gorgeously *Normal*

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: -swoon-


Me: Khalid, did you take a shower?

Khalid: Yes

Me: When? You already showered today?

Khalid: No.

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.
