LIFE WITH A SIDE OF AUTISM

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: She Knows You're There, Dad


You started to sit down next to her
But she told you to sit on the other side
You asked her if she was sure
She reminded you she's almost twelve
With an eyeroll, of course
You seemed a little hurt
But you dutifully took a seat on the other side
And the ride started
And she laughed
And you laughed, watching her
Don't worry, Dad
She's letting you know it's time to step back
But she still wants you nearby
She still wants to share the fun with you
And the memories of the fun
She knows you're there
Believe me, Dad...
That is everything.
