Dear Ryan Seacrest,
I’m writing to introduce you to American Idol’s biggest fan. I know the rows of screaming pre-pubescent girls fawning over Scotty *think* there are no bigger fans than they, but they haven’t met my son, M.
See, for a long time M didn’t dance, or even really respond to music. When he received a diagnosis of autism last year we understood why, and I prayed some day he’d dance and clap along to songs like other children his age. These days, he’s dancing along to American Idol every week.
In fact, he can identify the American Idol and FOX logos now.
This is pretty cute, except when he sees an AI commercial and thinks that means it’s show time. That happened Monday night and it sparked a 30 minute tantrum because he couldn’t understand why House was on instead of the Top Seven. Whoops!
In any case, M has been asking all week for “N’idol” and was so excited for last night’s episode that I just wanted to share! Seeing him enjoy bopping along each week is just amazing to my husband and me!
Maya, the Marfan Mom
