Curse you, Publix!

One night this week we had gone through our regular bedtime routine, (Boo-k and singing  'Creighton loves mommy, mommy loves Creighton,  Creighton 's gonna TAKE A NAP')

Creighton was asleep and  I was lying in the bed TRYING to sleep,  but I kept hearing this, well---*crawling* sound is the best way I can say it.

Me: "Don't freak out. It's just the fan blowing on something."

Other Me: "Oh my GOD it's a snake! It's a SNAKE!"

Me: "Calm DOWN!  It's not a snake. Just air blowing something around."

Other Me: "I don't know who you're trying to fool. There is a SNAKE about to crawl in your bed, and it's going to eat you slowly while you are posting about it on Facebook!"

Me: ...........

Other Me: "See. Told you.  Snake. Big giant Bertha about to come - -"

Me: "Jess! JESS!!  J.E.S.S"

Husband comes faithfully running back to the bedroom.  Asks what's wrong.

"There's something crawling on the floor by the bed. It might be a snake."

 Other Me: "It IS a snake."

 Jess turns on the light.  Looks around.

"You mean this?"

It's one of those free balloons attached to a card Publix gives away. Only this one is half deflated.

Other Me: "I TOLD you it wasn't a snake. Now he thinks we are crazy. "

Me: 😡😡😡😣😣😣

 Darn , you Publix. Darn you for giving my kid a balloon every time he goes.  Now he expects it. And they apparently make their way into MY bedroom where I convince myself there's a big Mama Cass snake about to crawl in my bed and devour me alive.

We'll be back in a few weeks for more balloon snakes 😉😉 #Publix #balloons #momhumor  #talkingtomyself

Speech, Doctors and other normal things

Thought I'd try to start updating more and talking about my main focus---Autism.

Today was speech day. But, before that, I had an appointment in Mobile for followup after my Gallbladder surgery. So, Creighton was in the car ALL DAY. Plus, he had to go to speech.

For a typical ASD kid, this would not be good. For Creighton, it was ok today. I think, a lot due in part to the fact that my mother in law went with us and helped me watch him as much as she could.

When we got to speech, I told Debbie that he's been saying his letters when he sees them.  She, like his SLP that comes to the house with Early Intervention, was really impressed.

When they came out, she said he'd gone through about half the alphabet.

Tonight, he has been rolling balls everywhere. Just a normal night with Creighton.

I'm looking forward to this next journey. He's about to be three, and about to start school. It scares me, but excites me at the same time. He will also be starting preschool soon, we hope.

Signing off for the night.
