Eli's Day

Little bro finally got HIS first day of school today. It's been all about Lucy and The Bus and Her School and Her Routines for so long he stopped asking when he would start school. Well, it was today and really no big deal. If I didn't know better, I'd think he mumbled, "Whatevs", when I dropped him off. He didn't even look up at me to say goodbye. When I picked him up and asked him in the car what he did today, he very politely stated, "We played, we ate snack, we read some books, and then you picked me up". Preschool in a nut shell from a 3 year old.

I don't know if it's second child, boy, neurotypical or a healthy combination of all three, but he's soooo easy. Even if he is running around the house without any pants on, during what should be his nap time.

Kindergarten Open House

Lucy met her teachers and saw her classroom today, in preparation for the first day of school on Monday, August 15th. She drew her teachers a picture of the planets orbiting the sun. She was describing the picture to them and they seemed impressed with her use of the word orbit. It was then that I looked at them and asked, while nodding my head, that they had looked in her file, yes? I got that blank stare with a half nod, which really means, I have no idea what you are talking about.

Not very reassuring for the mother of a child with Aspergers who is sending her child off to Kindergarten, on the bus, for the very first time.

She wants to bring her teachers an apple on the first day of school, so we will stay positive and go with it. She knows her bus color and her cubby number and her teachers name. Maybe I will scribble my phone number on her arm, just as back up.

Water Game Number 2,593

This is why I am crazy insane by the time Ken gets home. She is always getting her animals water to drink. And then that water makes it's way throughout the house in the form of a 3 year old named Eli.
