You Know You're Old When

On Monday, I picked up "J" and her friend "K" from high school. My windows were up, but a loud thumping was permeating through anyway. "Thumpa thumpa thumpa thump thump thumpa thumpa thump."

Somebody had their radio turned extremely loud. All I could hear was bass, and it was physically painful to my ears. It was vibrating into my ears and down through my body. I'll go ahead and subscribe to AARP now.
"SJ" is starting to pick up a lot of language. He is still not doing a lot of sentence making, but he knows the color yellow and he is saying new words every day. Both his speech therapist and I are excited.

Last night he was having a tantrum and I held up a soda to see if he would stop screaming and ask for it. He screamed more because he wanted it. I kept telling him he had to say, "I want soda."

Finally, at the top of his lungs, he screeched, "I WANT SODA!"

Thank you, Babelbabe and my sister "J", for the various articles you both sent. I think I am getting a good handle of where we are with him.
We have good news on the van. It was the transmission and it is covered. They are going to replace it again. I do hope they hurry up. The rental car is fun to drive, but I don't have to pay to drive my van. (Well, except for insurance, upkeep and crazy gas prices!)
"SJ" is being particularly turdy so this will be a short post.

Mr. Man did finally let you know, didn't he? Good news on the van. Hopefully, they won't dick around six months.

i'm glad the articles helped.

and i'm with you on the thumping bass - it's not an age thing, it's a consideration thing. why should anyone have to listen to someone else's music in a public place? it's all about aggression.
