Aspie son, aspie mother

I had this beautiful aspie conversation with my aspie son (he doesn't know he is an aspie, or that I'm an aspie too).
"I want to be left alone in school sometimes and they don't let me".
"Don't you have a place to be alone during recess?"
"No. And during class, as they say I'm the smartest in the class, the kids are always asking me to help them out. But they're lazy".
"Honey, everybody has different abilities, and you know English (we live in Mexico) because I've talked to you in English ever since you were a baby, even though it's not my mother tongue. Most moms don't do that".
"Aren't their moms smart?" Haha, I most say, I had a surge of pride. I had to kiss him. "Honey, thank you for that. Your mom is smart, ha? The thing is that most moms don't even think of doing that, and some don't even know English".
He continued:
"Sometimes the teachers ask me: 'Why are you alone?' and I answer: 'Because I want to. It's my decision. I just want some peace and quiet".
My beautiful son, I am so proud of you. I love you so much.
