Afterschool: Doing Dude Stuff. (Day 19)


Just like a regular dude:

I hang with my bro and play video games.

No cutesy comments from mommy today either. NO GIRLS ALLOWED!

Just like a regular dude……..I agree with brothers before mothers.

Or something like that. Bro Collage

I’m not an elephant.


No post yesterday. I forgot.

Hey….Poop happens. I can’t remember everything.

I love elephants and they clearly love apple stuff like me, but I am not a memory magician. Okay. It was really my mommy’s fault, but I have to protect her. You know….because she’s my mommy.

Elephant

So….Besides making you aware of me not being an elephant. Here’s something else you might not know. I don’t always wake up amazing looking or feeling. I know…I know….it’s hard to believe.

BUT……Just like a regular dude:

I sometimes need a little time to get myself together.

And…..Just like a regular dude, I sometimes put my hands places they don’t need to be, especially when others are in the room, watching and worse….taking pictures.

Despite the……

First things first:

Get some stamps.

Order some pizza.

Eat American cheese!

BE AWARE:

Just like most kids my age and most dudes of any age, I sometimes put my head in places I probably shouldn’t.

“Okay. Mommy? Daddy? I told people I did this to myself. Can you please take this kid cone off of my head now? I promise to be good.”

Be Aware: I’m a regular dude (PreK Day:16)


Just like a regular dude:

I like to rock out on instruments.

And……Just like a regular dude, I think I sound better than I really do.

Day 16 with Snake 015

Just like a regular dude:

I sometimes play with tools.

And…….Just like a regular dude, I sometimes put my fingers where they don’t belong.

Day 16 with Snake 007

I’m self-sufficient. (PreK: Day 15)


Mommy took this picture of me after I got home from school today. It was a half day, which for me meant only two hours. That was a good thing since I had to talk to my associate.

“Mom. I told you not to eavesdrop on my meetings with my consigliere.

There are some things…..you can’t unhear.”

Day 15

BE AWARE:

I can get what I need.

See me at the big black thingie?

Self-Sufficient

Look at how effortlessly I opened it with my tiny little fingers.

Oct2-2

See how focused I am? I’m bending down and reaching for what I want.

Oct2-3

Tortilla chips. My favorite.

Oct2-5

Now you know how I get to this happy place.

I know where the snacks are kept.

I won’t starve.

Oct2-6

Be aware. Be very aware. (PreK: Day 14)


October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

To bring awareness, I’m gonna share something everyday that you may or may not know already. Don’t worry though……You can still stalk me at preschool. Scratch that. You can stalk my adventures on this blog. Stalking in real life will get you arrested you big dopey! And….That would be the nicer option.

This is me at about 6:30 this morning. Even in the most coffee necessary timeframe for most Americans, I am up and using technology. Okay. I might not have pants on, but I’m guessing a lot of people weren’t wearing any at that time either.

iPad

BE AWARE:

I can use an iPad just as well, if not better than any kid my age. I don’t lick it. I don’t try to eat it and I don’t throw it. It’s not like I’m an animal. I’m a responsible human being, who understands it’s a privilege to have electronics. AND……My family understands that keeping their limbs intact is a privilege they will quickly lose if they mess with my iPad privileges.
