Kids and God

My four year old hopped up on my lap as I was previewing a documentary on autism for a graduate course I am teaching in the fall. The conversation went something like this:

Daughter: “What’s this about?”

Me: “Oh, it is a movie about autism.”
Daughter: “Great, I’ll watch the baptism movie with you. I know all about kids and God.”

Me: “This is about autism, not baptism.”

Daughter: “Yeah, I know. Kids and God.”

Me: Hmmm, O.K.”

Perhaps autism really is just about people and understanding the unknown. At this moment, I am pretty certain my preschooler can teach this course in my stead.
