The Autism Question

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were getting ready to go to a benefit for Pathfinders for Autism, a nonprofit that we support enthusiastically.  Dinner, dancing, silent auction, the whole she-bang. 

"Why is Mr. S. coming to put Conor to bed tonight?" he asked my husband.

"Because Mom and I are going to a dance," my husband replied.

"Why are Mommy and Daddy going to a dance?" Conor continued.

"It's a dance to raise money for autism, Conor," my husband explained.  "Do you have autism?"

"NO!" Conor replied. He turned and walked away.

Ok, honey, I took The Sex Talk question.  You get to handle the Autism question, since you asked.  Sounds good to me. Let me know how it turns out.

My husband is a great Dad, but is a feckin genius at side-stepping the big questions. I'll be interested to know how he gets on! XXX
