Pointing (Mom)

They say child not pointing is one of the early signs of autism. Nathan never pointed. So I’m a bit surprised at the amount of pointing he did today. He pointed and insisted to go to 7-11 (which I now have to avoid because of gluten-covered fried chicken), he pointed and insisted to touch the fire extinguisher, he pointed and asked for his book from the shelf, he pointed and asked for the next batch of raisins as soon as he gobbled previous batches. It’s as if his “pointing button” has just been turned on.
