A friend of mine fondly remembers how my DH answered my son's question of "What are people made out of?" "Carbon compounds and water."

Are you a missing relative?

I have a nephew who, at the age of three, was with his mother and they were driving through a development, and he looked at all the half-circle windows and said, "hey, look at all the parabolas." And someone (at school) said, "how are wine and beer alike?" and he said, "they both contain ethyl alcohol." He was five.

It's scary when they're that fast, isn't it? And with a problem like Autism, it's marvelous that he has such a strong social sense in knowing what is appropriate to say. I know a lot of adults who can't manage that.
