Another Funny Comment

Celest was looking through a kitchen drawer the other day, and she found a basting brush (which looks like a giant paint brush). Since I never have used it I told her she could play with it.
She got really happy, lifted it in the air, and announced, "This is my sanitary napkin!" She was so serious, even officious, as she made her pronouncement that I cracked up.
We've been working on puberty related issues, so I'm assuming that someone at school called a "pad" a "sanitary napkin". :)

When We Don't Think They are Paying Attention...

One of my daughters is nonverbal, so she uses a Vantage speech device. She usually only requests things (generally food) or stims on the sound of the device.

However, the other day my mom was watching the girls for me and she told me this story:

Lotus was on the couch, minding her own business and stimming* on her speech device. Celest was arguing with my mom about something (probably going outside or getting more snacks). My mom was raising her voice, trying to get Celest to listen to her.

Without really looking in their direction or giving any outward appearance of noticing the altercation between her sister and grandma, Lotus typed this on her Vantage, "Grandma yelling, yelling"!
The photo is from an old mess that Celest made with a ten pound bag of flour that was left out on the counter overnight...
