Oh there's no doubt that I unquestionable love him.
And then there are times I'd unquestionably love to smack him upside the head.
He's just so affable, with little care in the world. And that's probably due to the fact that he, like so many kids today, have so much, and have always had everything provided for him. It's like he thinks it's never gonna end, and he's never going to have to go out into the world and fend/provide for himself.
He's a darn good kid, and I've never really had any trouble with him, nor has he ever gotten in any. He's not going to do anything that might involve risk.
He has Asperger's Syndrome, which falls in the autism classification. He's a very intelligent kid. He just has a motivational problem at doing anything he doesn't like, or if he thinks it's just not worth pursuing.
But he actually has a girlfriend now -well, at least she calls the house every night for the last 6 months. He's decided he needs to get his driving permit, so I'm taking him out this weekend to do so. I think seeing his younger sister getting hers, and the fact she is a step ahead of him, kinda bugs him.
Whatever it takes to motivate the boy!
