Trevor’s nap routine includes cuddling together and sharing happy, scary and/or angry thoughts from his school day. I use the thoughts he shares when we say our nap time prayers.
He usually only ever has happy thoughts to share. Today was a normal day and he only had happy thoughts.
His speech session was his first happy choice. When I called his ST by her first name he corrected me and said that wasn’t her name. I couldn’t remember her last name (she’s new to our team) and neither could he. But he was adamant that her first name was not the name I was using. He’s wrong btw but you can’t tell him that. So we moved on…
And then when we prayed I dared to thank Jesus for bringing Miss. Speech into his life to help him… I was waxing quite eloquent when he smacked his forehead with a frustrated gruff. Because I used her name that he doesn’t believe is her name. So he dramatically smacks his forehead and says…
Now I have angry to say!
To which the only response could be laughter and gobs of kisses and hugs because he’s just too stinkin’ hilarious!
Trevor: Bristel, watch Mike the Knight with me?
Trevor: Please? Pleeeeeease? Pleeeeeeeeeeease?
Bristel: NO! I want to eat.
Trevor, with a big smile: You watch and eat!
Bristel: TREVOR…I SAID NO! I want to watch Jessie upstairs.
Trevor to me: Moooom, no eat upstairs. Right?
Me: Right, Buddy. No eating is allowed upstairs.
Trevor, with clear satisfaction and what I can only assume was a smug look at his sister: I just checking with you.
The big kids and I have a new addiction.
Although Bristel says I make her “eye twitch” every time I say the words “it was an educated guess”.
She’s not a fan of losing to mom.
Toby sends me a PM that says: when you see this give me a hug.
He’s sitting right next to me on his laptop.
His face is priceless when he sees me get the message. Being a teen mom isn’t all bad.
I leave you with an amazing article by my favorite disability author.
