    so we get a card in the mail for an honor roll ceremony. When I told manster he asked me several times "are you sure they sent it to the right house?" I tried to explain about gold, silver and bronze and that getting a 3.0 is like bronze. He's just never seen himself as an honor roll kid. He explained it in true aspie fashion as "ok so I'm the dumbest of the smart kids". Well, yeah, I guess you could say that.

    That's such a cute story. One of the joys (and there are some) of having a kid with Aspergers/High-Functioning Autism (HFA) is the incredibly original and interesting things that come out of their mouths. They can really grasp the gist of a situation and express it without any spin at all. So refreshing!!

    Wouldn't he rather be the dumbest of the smart kids, than the smartest of the dumb kids?

    LOL making the honor roll is a super event!! I don't think I ever did...
