Link O Rama

I've had a hard time lately getting a bead on how Thomas is doing. When he feels bad, we give him medicine and he perks up fairly soon; it's been hard to bring incremental changes into focus.

Tonight, though, we were watching the upteenth episode of the Little Bill marathon. The only one I hadn't seen was the episode that our cable said was, "Mrs. Murray's Wedding." Sweet, I thought. I had just been wondering if the preschool teacher was married. Unfortunately, cable was wrong - it was the Guppies episode, and I'd seen that one.

On, then, to Wonder Pets. When bedtime finally hit, I heard myself I thinking, "They really write the hamster as the smarty pants, but Ming Ming is the one who does all the work." *

So it seems we've been spending more time on the couch lately. And when I think about it, I know we've been giving more meds. For now, though, when I think of Thomas's day, what I'm counting is the new games and new phrases, not the med changes.

This week he added "airplane," "howzYOdeegoin?" ("How's your day going?") and "I know what to do!" (from Harry the Dirty Dog) to his vocabulary. Thomas knows what the moon is for sure now, too, but he's still calling it "Goat" ...there's a story there, but ..another time.

Anyway, I wanted to say hello. We've slipped into a pattern here, and it's been hard to remember that "here" is still nowhere near normal.

*This is one of the only shows Thomas and I disagree on - he totally gits down and boogies to their surreal, atonal baby opera, while I keep trying to get him to watch Yo Gabba Gabba instead.

Good to see some photos. Quit bothering to think about what is or isn't "normal". It is how it is. Get Thomas to watch "In the Nightgarden" - now that programme really is on acid.
