Kids on the Autism spectrum are usually very literal.
To see a cute baby and say some kind of southern thing such as, "Ooooh, you are so cute I just want to eat you up!" can cause all sorts of issues for an autistic child. (Trust me on this, okay?
Anyway, the other day the children were doing some chores and straightening up around the house and Sarah told Sam to hang up the towels they had used so they could dry. He wanted to know where and her response was on the shower.
Now, we all know that what she meant was across the shower curtain rod...what Sam understood though? Not the same thing.
Hey, at least he did what she asked!
