I am trying out a book written from the point of view of my son. Each day, I am going to share a “chapter.” They are very short, written in a poetic style.
I am a boy.
I am a Christian.
I love math.
I have two cats that I love.
They are good for keeping my feet warm and petting.
My dog is only good for slobbering.
I do not like homework, but I like school.
The end of the school year is coming up and I feel like I’m the only one who hates summer.
Not because it’s hot; not because I miss my friends.
I don’t quite feel this way.
Summer is boring because I have to come up with my own things to do.
I don’t do that well.
I have Asperger’s Syndrome.
It is a form of high functioning autism.
Asperger’s Syndrome is ok because it is who I am.
I have talents because of it.
Sometimes it makes things hard, but I have learned to deal with those things.
I hope that people would like me for who I am.
I am just a regular boy who loves math.
I hugged my math book when I was in second grade.
It made my friends laugh because they know how I feel about math.
There’s more to me than that.
But that’s a start.
