Cooper had a bit of a rough day today. Apparently he was very whiny at school, even the bus driver told me he was crying when he got on the bus. He pulled it together and worked really well with his ABA therapist, but then his private (and not free) speech therapist came over and he fell apart! It is so frustrating when he does that! Today it was because he went and looked in her basket of toys and of course found one with numbers all over it. It was an older Leapfrog toy that had all the numbers up to 20 on it and he was in love aka obsessed. His therapist will not be bringing that one over again, he refused to do anything else! Unfortunately, they don't make it anymore but I have a bid in on a used one on Ebay.....wish me luck :) The good thing is that the speech therapist gave our ABA therapist lots of ideas and tips which I know she is going to implement, she even took notes!

Quinn came home from school and peed on the potty like a champ. I don't know what happened but two hours later he was a totally different child, refusing to sit on the potty and managing to get his hand in the toilet twice!! Yuck! Oh the joys of potty training...not :( Besides that he was a pretty good boy tonight. Grandma Berta brought over one of her good silver forks for him to use at dinner. She says only the best for her grandson, but in reality it is sharper than my forks and made it a little easier for him to spear his nuggets. It also lead to a conversation about the classic TV sitcom Silver Spoons, cause that is just how my husband thinks. I was surprised to hear that Ricky Schroder was gay, but it turns out my husband was just thinking of the guy from Doogie Howser. Yup folks, this is what you talk about at dinner when you have been married for 7 years, lol! FYI, According to Wikipedia, Ricky Schroder has been married since 1992 and has 4 children. He is also a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and a member of the Republican Party, so it is unlikely that he is gay. At least not openly, and you know what I am talking about if you watch Big Love :)

Tomorrow, if school isn't canceled or delayed, Quinn is going on a field trip to the fire station followed by lunch at Burger King. His trips almost always involve some kind of fast food, lucky kid!
