What Happened

I don't know what happened, but I just realized today that I haven't posted anything since May of last year. I must do better than that. I will make it one of my new goals to post at least once a week. After all, this is for Zander to read when he is older and I have skipped many months. So, be patient as I try to catch up.

Easter Eggs

We ended up at CiCi's house on the weekend before Easter and CiCi had a surprise for Zander. She had boiled eggs and asked him to help her dye them. They turned out really cute. The funny thing was what Zander said. Children with Asperger's are quite blunt and often blurt out things without thinking about it first. I overheard Zander say, "CiCi, I quite enjoyed dyeing eggs with you. I would like to do it again next year if you are not dead." I tried to explain AGAIN, that while that was a true statement, it was not very nice. Thank goodness CiCi understands and was not offended.
On Easter Sunday, I decided to pass down a tradition. When I was growing up, on Easter Sunday Granny always had Easter eggs for lunch. My uncles thought it was alot of fun to hit me in the head with the egg to crack it. It really hurt sometimes, but it happened every year. I told Zander about this and PaPa was the first to crack his egg on Zander's head. Zander thought this was hysterical of course and needless to say, he cracked several of the eggs on PaPa's head. Thinking of you Uncle Steve!

Spring Fling

Get the cookie into your mouth without touching it

Put the noodles on the spaghetti noodle without using your hands

Toss the ball into the basket

Zander's school has a fundraiser each year called Spring Fling. The children buy tickets to play the games in each room and get a prize. Alot of the games this year were the "Minute to win it" variety. It was so much fun to watch Zander try to figure out how to accomplish this. He finished all of the games and a great time was had by all.
