Autism. LATE FOR SCHOOL DAD!
The days where Bright Eyes refuses kicking and screaming to go to school are balanced out by the days, like today, where he races down the stairs at 8.58 yelling, "I'M LATE FOR SCHOOL! I CAN'T BE LATE!"
Yes, he can definitely read a clock. And he can also hear the playground bell ring at 9am from across the street. That's the sign to start playing, and when he's in the mood, he definitely wants to be there.
