There is something strange going on in my house, last night I suspected that something was different, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I've checked all the rooms, there is no one here that doesn't belong. Everyone is here that does belong. But I keep getting the feeling that there is something.... but what? My younger son is severely autistic, he is like a 5 y/o in and 18 y/o body. The problem is that he is so quick to pick up on even the slightest change (heaven forbid I don't have his cup placed right in the cupboard etc.) so he really notices any changes at all. I didn't say anything, just went along with our normal routine, while I'm cooking & getting everything ready for dinner we listen to music... we have a compromise, he doesn't get Barney, but I listen to a Disney Mania CD that he loves. It was while the music was playing that he noticed that difference in the air too. He ran to the kitchen asking “Mommy, can I dance too?” That's right! I was keeping time to the music as I moved around the kitchen, there is energy in the air! The spark is spreading! As we “danced” around the kitchen dinner was cooked (he tried to find the fish that I said was cooking but couldn't find the fish sticks anywhere! I had to explain that “Mommy's cooking REAL fish” and he loved it. The table got set and before we knew it we had danced dinner to the table.
