Today, I met up with my friend and her children. Her oldest child, M, is around 7, and she has been asking me a lot of questions about Aspergers lately, and I've been trying to explain what it is.
My friend told me that M has now begun explaining Aspergers to other people. This is her definition:
"When most children grow up, they lose their creativity, but Debi hasn't because she's got Aspergers!"
This must be the loveliest definition I've ever heard and I'm certainly gonna adopt it!
