Today each of my kids did something I bet you’ve never done? Seth and I visited a nature center and he was kissed by an opossum. A tame little guy that runs around inside like a pet cat. Cuter than you would expect. I guess they don’t really photograph well, but in person....so sweet! Seth also fed him some raisons.
And Riley? Well, Riley threw a book at an unresponsive librarian. (C’mon. Who hasn’t wanted to do that)?
Tonight I’ll be writing a social story, about what to do to get someone’s attention if the teacher sends you to their room to drop something off and they are ignoring you or otherwise engaged.
I think I’ll suggest the ole’, "ahem" cough. This is just another one of those things you have to spell out for kids on the autistic spectrum. It doesn’t seep into their brains naturally and you don’t think of the situation til’ it comes up.
This is why I don’t have time to sell all that fundraising crap for school. I’m busy getting 13 different nutritional supplements into her each day...and writing social stories.
