We had a great family day with Tristan at Santa’s Village! What I love about raising Tristan is how he lives in the moment. I wish I had this gift naturally.
Tristan loves to watch YouTube on his tablet. It is always the same genre of videos. Videos with songs on Abc’s, colors, shapes, and counting! I am grateful for all the creative video content on these topics. He is developmentally a toddler/preschooler, and he thoroughly enjoys choosing his videos. Lately…he has discovered you can watch the same topics of videos in other languages!
The other day a conversation in my house went like this…
My seventeen-year-old son looked at the counter and saw some bags from my shopping trip.
He asked, “What are these for an Easter egg hunt?”
I have met people over the years that have experienced this story. If you are reading this at this applies to you, feel free to leave a comment below. You may add a detail that I didn’t know about.
April is Autism Awareness Month. I do have a story to share.
A few years ago my older son asked me for some money for school. His school was collecting money for Autism Awareness Month. The conversation went something like this…
Jacob: Mom can I have some money for Autism Awareness fundraiser.
Mom: No you may not. If you want Autism Awareness bring your brother to school with you! People will be very aware of autism!!! They will see first hand it is a communication and social impairment.
I thought my answer seemed logical and funny. However, my son did not think so!
Enjoy another healthy dose of laughter!
Despite our family crisis with Tristan’s care, our home is still quite lively. It is interesting to hear the comments from our teenager’s. Here’s a snapshot of some recent conversations.
It was about time I had a little chit-chat with Tristan. I realized our views on an issue was opposite. It went like this. Okay, I will be honest, I did all the talking!
