Today BubTar doesn't have school. KayTar had speech this morning, and because BubTar spent yesterday morning with my mom due to the Big Eval, I decided to just bring him along with us. He has never come before, because I try to keep his life as normal as possible and schedule him to spend time with people and do fun things in lieu of spending half his time in KayTar-related waiting rooms. He was oddly excited about going and I tried to make it clear it was pretty boring for the two of us, as we just sat quietly and watched the whole time. He was still excited, so I was happy he was coming along to see where we go each week.
Afterwards, I said, "Was it everything you thought it would be?"
And he said, "Mom, I thought there was a STAGE and I thought she could talk like a real WOMAN when I wasn't around. I thought she only acted like a baby at home. I thought we'd be watching her on the stage!"
I guess he has been thinking that she was living a double life as a famous orator who only PRETENDED to be a speech-impaired toddler. The reality was a bit of a let down, I think, just a bit of reading along with some manipulatives. I wonder what other bits of silliness live in that little brain of his.
