Well, that's creative ...

November has been super crazy and I know December is probably going to be worse, but I had to share my daughter's silliness.

I've been trying to teach The Girl charity and giving, but it's hard when you don't have any extra. We have sorted through her toys and gave the ones she didn't want to "other children" aka Goodwill and now that the Salvation Army buckets are out I told her that it was so other children could have nice warm coats and Christmas presents and I gave her some coins to put in the bucket. We went to Walmart today and as we pulled in parking spot she saw the lady ringing the bell and asked if she could put some money in the bucket. Since I wanted to see if my lesson was sticking I asked her, "What is that money for? What do they do with the money we give them?"

The Girl screwed up her face, thought for a moment and said, "It's for robot eyes!"

Umm, okay? I think we have more to talk about ...

Wonderful (and delayed) update!

On Tuesday Little Man had his FINAL occupational therapy session! You heard me right! He has been improving in leaps and bounds. He is mastering a fork and spoon (a little early, but that's normal with sensory kids) and is eating so much more. But not only that, he's also able to deal with touching some things. I was so excited to see him holding and eating a banana! He still has some issues - he HATES getting his face wiped - but it's now in the "quirky" range instead of the "Oh my God he's not eating and is going to starve" range. :) Our wonderful occupational therapist felt comfortable discharging him and said to feel welcome to call if anything came up. I'm so proud of my Little Man!!!
