The apple game 

At the age of 26 months or so, Frances went from speaking less than the average child her age to using compound sentences, correct adjective-adverb distinction, and story-telling, in an incredibly short period of time. (It truly seemed to occur just about overnight.)

Fast forward to March 4, 2010, when Frances, two months away from turning three, is talking about the “apple game”.

Me: What is it?

Frances: It’s where I go get an apple and throw it at something.

Me: Uh, no. No, we’re not going to play that game. (By this point, she is running to get the stool that she uses to reach the apples.)

Frances: You should watch me, Mummy. It’s very cute.

I love to write, make art, etc. about my children, 16 and 12. I'm just doing what I like to do, and, if I happen to be raising awareness of high functioning ASD (my 12-year-old daughter has HF ASD), that's great.
