The time NTs are literal

Yes even normies can take things literal but rarely

. Today my mom and I were in the car and we were taking my son to his assessment. I tell her she would have to get off at exit 1 and follow the yellow line. So we get off at that exit and my mom is about to turn so I tell her to go straight. She thanks me for telling her and she thought she had to go past the mall. I tell her we are and she goes “the mall is two blocks over.” Okay so I know her definition of passing a place now. Then she asks me where the yellow line is and I tell her. She keeps going straight and I forget how the conversation went but she told me she was looking for the yellow lines in the road and I tell her it’s just the light rail. She says “Oh you said the yellow line so I was looking for the colored yellow lines in the road.” I tell her about how each light rail is color coded and she says “Just like in Paris and London.” I told her it’s to keep track of them so people know which train to go on. My mom says how she didn’t know about what the yellow line was and she didn’t know about the blue line or the red line or the green line, etc. She had taken it literal when I told her to follow the yellow line. I assumed she knew about the colored lines because I knew them but she doesn’t take the light rail so she wouldn’t know what I was talking about when I told her to follow the yellow line.

My son failed the Sally Ann test

Today I was doing homework with my son. Then we worked on flash cards and the Kindergarten Brain Quest. He isn’t good with picture sequencing because he gets them out of order so I have to help him. Then I decided to test him on something. I use my daughter’s Daisy doll and his action figure. I use the glue stick. I tell my son that Daisy puts the glue stick in the bowl and leaves. The action figure comes in the room and he decides to move the glue stick. He hides it under the Brain Quest cards and other junk. Daisy comes back and ¬†she is going to get her glue stick. Where will she look? My son who was laughing points to the junk pile where the glue stick was hidden. He said this was all silly. I asked him why she would look there and he said that is where the glue stick is. I asked him how did she know it was there. He didn’t really answer and just said I was silly. I figured okay he still hasn’t developed that people have their own ideas yet and some kids don’t have this ability until age six and he still has time.
