MON.

A WHILE AGO, JESS WAS PRACTICING A SPEECH ABOUT WHALES 4 SCHOOL. SHE RAN ACROSS THE WORD “BALEEN”,, & WASN’T SURE IF SHE PRONOUNCED IT CORRECTLY. USUALLY, THE KIDS JUST SAY A WORD, & ASK IF THEY SAID IT RIGHT…IF I NOD “NO,” THEY TRY SAYING IT ANOTHER WAY, BUT THIS TIME, I SAID IT WELL ENOUGH 4 JESSIE 2 HEAR THE CORRECT VOWEL PRONUNCIATION! I WAS SO EXCITED!

OF COURSE, SHE HAD 2 CHECK W/MK L8R, EITHER BECUZ SHE 4GOT, OR WANTED 2 BE SURE SHE HEARD ME CORRECTLY!

THEN, 2DAY, ZACH ASKED A YES/NO QUESTION THROUGH R BEDROOM DOOR. I ANSWERED “NO.” ALTHOUGH IT WASN’T A GREAT “NO” (I DIDN’T SUSPECT HE’D UNDERSTAND), HE UNDERSTOOD! THAT FEELING OF BEING UNDERSTOOD NEVER GETS OLD!

SUN., THE KIDS WERE MAKING WISHLISTS…JESS ASKED 4 A GAMING CHAIR. ZACH REASONED 2 NOT GET HER 1, BECUZ SHE HAD A HAMOCK CHAIR IN HER ROOM. HE WENT ON, SAYING THAT EVERY1 IN THE FAMILY HAD A (“SPECIAL”) CHAIR, EXCEPT HIM–HE ADDED THAT “MOM HAS THE BEST CHAIR”! YA’ KNOW, IT’S HARD SOMETIMES 2 C SOMETHING THAT’S NESSECARY, IN THAT LIGHT, SO I’M GRATEFUL 4 MY CHILDREN’S REMINDERS! (MORE 2 ADD 2 MY “GRATITUDE LIST!”)

ALSO SUN., AS THE KIDS WERE MAKING WISHLISTS, FIA CAME UP 2 ME, & FLAT OUT SAID SHE WANTED A WHEELCHAIR. SHE’D BE THE HAPPIEST KID IF SHE COULD PLAY COMPUTER ALL DAY, BE FED, ORDER OTHERS 2 DO HER TASKS, CHOOSE WHEN 2 WALK, & SHE EVEN THINKS IT’D BE GREAT 2 JUST NOD YES/NO & SAY THINGS ONLY WHEN SHE WANTS 2! I’M GLAD MY LIFE IS SO APPEALING
