So we were at a wedding last night with our boys, and our youngest had a hell of a good time running and playing chase with the other boys. Alex was looking kind of down, and says to Cheryl, "Mom, I thought there were going to be girls to flirt with." I have no idea where he got that idea, but Cheryl searched the crowd and saw a little girl about his age, led him over there made the introductions. During dinner, Alex tracked her down and was chatting up a storm with her. Gives me hope for the future. Since he can't play at recess with the boys he spends most of his time chatting with the girls, and in his teens (or later in my case) when his peers are still figuring out the basics of interacting with girls and women, he'll be light years ahead. Bring on the exon skipping and other real treatments asap, please.
