ROUNDING OUT MY POINTY SIDES

I’M EASILY MADE HAPPY THESE DAYS! I’M SO EXCITED! TUESDAY, AS I WATCHED FIA AT TRACK & FIELD DAY, I FED MYSELF BREAKFAST (I’M RARELY THE NEATEST EATER, BUT THIS WAS FINGER FOODSM WHICH ARE EASIER 2 EAT).

THE BEST PART: I DRANK WATER FROM A REAL CUP, W/A CHICK-FELL-A STRAW! IT’S A THIN STRAW, SO I WASN’T SURE I COULD DO IT–ESP. SINCE I OFTEN CAN’T PUCKER W/OTHERS THERE–I OFTEN SMILE! BUT I KNEW WATER WAS MY BAST SHOT, SINCE IT’S THE THINNEST LIQUID, SO I FIGURED IT MAY BE THE EASIEST 2 SUCK UP.

PLUS, IT’S CLEAR, SO IF I DROOLED W/NO BIB, IT WAS OK. BUT I DIDN’T DROOL! & I ATE LIKE ANY1 ELSE…I WAS JUST A MOM AT TRACK & FIELD DAY, SITTING IN THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE & EATING. NO BIB. NO TILTED CHAIR. IT FELT SO GOOD 2 FEEL SOME RESEMBLANCE 2 NORMAL!

WHEN WE GOT HOME, I DECIDED 2 AGAIN C THE MOVIE “CATCH ME IF U CAN”. THERE’S A STORY USED SEVERAL TIMES THAT SAYS SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
“THERE WERE 2 MICE THAT FELL IN A BUCKET OF CREAM. 1 IMMEDIATELY GAVE UP & DROWNED. THE OTHER STRUGGLED SO MUCH & 4 SO LONG, IT TURNED THE CREAM INTO BUTTER & CRAWLED OUT.”

AT TIMES, I BELIEVE I DO THINGS LIKE THE 2ND MOUSE, & TUESDAY EVERYTHING I’VE WORKED ON FINALLY ADDED UP, & I FINALLY CRAWLED OUT OF MY “BUCKET OF CREAM.” IT’S A SMALL THING, BUT I BET THE MOUSE WAS EASILY EXCITED, THOUGH NO1 CHEERED 4 HIM!

GRANTED, I PROBABLY HAVE “BUCKETS OF CREAM LINED UP, SO I GET OUT OF 1 & CLIMB INTO ANOTHER, BUT I PREFER 2 THINK OF MYSELF LIKE A CHILDREN’S BOOK JESS LOVES 2 READ 2 ME (I LOVE CHILDREN’S BOOKS—THEY R SHORT & SWEET & 2 THE POINT, OFTEN W/A GREAT MORAL 2 THE STORY—LIKE “I THINK I CAN!”): JESS READ “THE MISSING PIECE MEETS THE BIG O”. THE MISSING PIECE IS A TRIANGLE THAT MEETS THE BIG O (A CIRCLE), & THE BIG O ENCOURAGES THE MISSING PIECE 2 ROUND OUT its POINTY SIDES, & ROLL.

MY NEW THING IS 2 “ROUND OUT MY POINTY SIDES” MORE BY TRYING MY HAND AT FEEDING MYSELF THINGS. I OFTEN C THINGS THINKING “THERE’S NO WAY I CAN DO THAT!” BUT AS SOON AS I THINK THAT, A LITTLE “DEVIL” SAYS, “I WONDER…JUST TRY!” UTENSILS CAN BE TRICKY…IN MUSIC THERAPY, I’M WORKING ON MY GRIP BY HOLDING A LARGE, FLAT PICK, BUT I ALSO NEED 2 BALANCE THE FOOD ON THE UTENSIL, BY KEEPING THE UTENSIL STRAIGHT. I OFTEN FAIL THE 1ST TIME, BUT THEN I C WHAT WAS WRONG, SO I CAN FIX IT, & I FEEL A SMALL VICTORY W/EACH NEW FOOD I FEED MYSELF!

I’M ALSO TALKING MORE. I REALIZED IT’S HABIT 2 NOT TALK, SO I’M TRYING 2 SAY WORDS I SIGN GESTURE, OR NOD (THINGS LIKE ‘YES,’ ‘NO’, ‘I DON’T KNOW’, ‘HI’, ‘BYE’, THX U’) & SOMETIMES I SAY WHATEVER I THINK, IF IT’S A SHORT SENTENCE, EVEN IF I AM THE ONLY 1 WHO UNDERSTANDS ME! (IT’S RATHER FUN, & FIA UNDERSTANDS A LOT, SO IT’S JOKED THAT WE HAVE A “SECRET LANGUAGE) LOL WHAT SHE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND, SHE OFTEN UNDERSTANDS IT THROUGH MY BODY LANGUAGE
