It’s time to do another post about the stuff that may bore you all to death but I have a need to remember.
Ryan is not the best at back and forth conversation, hence the idea he may be on the autism spectrum. At times Ryan really tries to get his point or get something he really wants and he tries his very hardest to converse. I may say Ryan lets go to the park. He might reply, yeah, though but I thought maybe we could go to the park that is further. He uses it a ton for almost every conversation he attempts to have. His yeah, though but comes out fast and furious and it has become one word. Lately when he says it often I find myself smiling at inappropriate times in the conversation. I know it probably will eventually go away but I am finding it endearing.
Aaron is going through a stuffed animal phase. Since we can’t have a furry pet due to his asthma and allergies he is resigned to leaving a stuffed animal in my care most days. He will ask me if I walked his dog, turtle, penguin, animal of the day as soon as he walks in from school. He asks me where we went, and if I let the animal sun themselves on the deck, I happily make up stories of our adventures everyday. I am so not used to this imaginative play, because Ryan does not really do the imaginative play thing, but I enjoy is so much. I remember making up elaborate stories when I was a kid so I buy right into Aaron’s stories every time. Lately he has been feeling lonely in bed. I find him every morning wrapped around a 3 foot tall penguin sleeping peacefully. Oh the joys of six.
