The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

We are s-c-r-e-w-e-d.

Posted on: November 17, 2008

Saturday she asked me why there was a do not enter sign on some stairs at the SCA event we were attending.  It wasn’t formatted like a “do not enter” road sign, it just said “Do Not Enter.”  I asked her how she knew that and she said, “From when we learned signs at school.”

Yesterday we were out running errands… on the offramp from the freeway we stopped behind a red Corolla.  Shoshanna pipes up from the backseat, “Why we are behind a red Toyota?”  We asked her again how she knew that and she said, “It says it on the car!”  She later identified another Toyota for us in the Target parking lot.

While we were AT Target, we were shopping for clothes for her – her latest growth spurt went mostly in a vertical direction and the bulk of her pants were 2″ too short.  I commented to Matthew that we also needed to get her some warm p-a-j-a-m-a-s (because the 2T ones that we have been cramming her into really are too short now).  Shoshanna piped up, “I WANT new pajamas!”

We are well and truly in trouble with this one, I tell ya.

In other news, it’s evaluation central for her these days.  She has her testing for G&T elementary tomorrow morning; I go to do her “social history” for PT evaluation on Thursday morning (that oughta be fun – should I take a copy of her NICU discharge papers, d’you think?), and she has the “educational assessment” for PT (they do a full evaluation work-up for every kid, I guess) at school next Tuesday.  Whew!  But bureaucratic progress is being made, so we can’t complain.

Oh dear such wonderful yet totally scary news. If you can’t spell to get around her knowing what you are talking about, what next? Make up your own language?

She is an amazing young thing, isn’t she?
