When SM was home last Friday, I got upset with the kids for running late and told Ry, you better hurry up or I'm gonna have to spank your buttcheeks (as if). It's a threat I have never had to use more than once to get him in gear but one I also will never act upon. As Pops took them to school, Ry with a very vexed look on his face, says to SM, "I need to talk to you about your wife." SM said it took all he had not to bust out laughing. And explained to Ry that he needed to listen and hurry when instructed and also that I was just using it as a motivator. Ry explained that he could be motivated in other ways like offering him cookies......yeah me too. (tell me that didn't make you giggle) But at least Ry feels okay to voice his opinion, right?

Anyway, Mr. Ry paid me the highest compliment in the world on Saturday. Without seeing what the other is wearing, often on Saturdays we end up with the same color clothing. We end up being "twinks", look alikes. So when I came out on Saturday with a light blue t shirt and jeans and he had on a light blue t shirt and jean shorts, he says to me. "Oh look Oma, we did the twinks thing again". Aren't we a pair? Then he says, "we share our birthday, our fashion sense (way to much Project Runway for him) and isn't it great that we share our autism too?"
What a kid. He makes me cry with pride.
