For the first time in weeks I ran into my bff from two years ago. (If you're new to this blog I recommend clicking on the bff label and reading up on my former student with autism. I miss him so much. What a great kid.)
He's doing really well in third grade. I happened to walk past him while he was working one on one with his current special ed teacher.
"Hi Mrs. Lipstick" he said and looked back down at his work like the diligent student he is. Then slowly he picked his head back up as he took in the new, pregnant me.
He opened his mouth to say something and then closed it. Finally he got out, "Mrs. Lipstick, are you feeling different?"
Frankly, "are you feeling different" is far more polite than what some grownups say. However, not knowing that I was pregnant I wonder what he was thinking. Was he worried that I would say "Funny you should ask, you know my stomach kind of hurts" and he would have to be the one to inform me that my stomach had suddenly swollen and that I should get that looked into asap.
Two years later I still wish I knew what was going on inside his head...
