In my high school, the school (or parents?) would throw an all night party at the school the night after graduation — Graduation Celebration. I bet a lot of thought went into that name.
There must have been a Hollywood theme my year, because there were movie posters all over the lunchroom. One was for the critically acclaimed movie Baby Geniuses. For some Godforsaken reason, I felt compelled to take my picture with said poster, covering up the word Baby and the “S” in Geniuses. So that the poster would therefore refer to me as a Genius. Except I left the “E”, so really It said “GENIUSE.” which basically defeated the whole purpose.
(with KATHLEEN TURNER AND CHRISTOPHER LLOYD?? who knew? I should rent it. or stream it online, since no one rents movies anymore)
But to get back on topic: I’m pleased to announce that my daughter has not inherited my propensity for stupid! Drumroll please……
She signed today!! we’ve been kind of doing some signs for milk, more, and all done. which are probably not the correct ALS signs, but it works for us. sometimes we remember, sometimes we don’t. So it was a wonderful, exciting surprise when Viv started opening and closing her hand this morning, about 3 hours after she first ate (at 5:30am….) (and yes, I was running late this morning. because someone got up at 5:30am).
At first I thought she was waving bye, but then realized that we didn’t do that to her very much. as soon as I made the sign back, she did it again and had a HUGE smile on her face!
my sweet Baby Genius!
