Peesh, Ahmen and Your Wocom

Mass went well today, at least I thought so, DrillSgt. is of a different opinion. Last week was a different story, it was cold so I took LongRifle to the children's room thinking it would be warmer in there. It was, but unfortunately, being in that room is like teaching in a school where they place all the students that have behavioural difficulties in the same class, eventually it's mass chaos as they feed off of each other until things can no longer be contained. The only good thing that came out of that experience was that Pistol noticed LongRifle through the window and started calling out for her ti-ti (thereby once again reaffirming their strong connection to each other). Today I thought was an entirely different experience, sure I'll agree with DrillSgt. that LongRifle did lay down completely on the floor, sure there was some loud, unsolicited singing during non-singing times, but today Da'Gorgeouses participated. During the peace-be-with-you exchange, Pistol extended her hand to those around us and said "peesh", they both said "Ahmen" copying what everyone else was saying. Pistol even went so far as to place a wipe on her head, like a covering, and played peek-a-boo with the people around her (all of this done quietly) so I think overall, it was a great day!

Afterwards, Grammy & Welo watched Da'Gorgeouses while DrillSgt. and I got out for a bit. When we returned they proudly told us that LongRifle had said "your wocom" after they had both told her thank you. Her walking also seems to have improved somewhat, I think she may realize that she needs to slow down and think about what she's doing and that will help her not lose her balance so much.

Mass...It's an adventure. Sounds like things are going pretty good though. I always wonder about those kids I see who sit silent, almost statue like next to their parents. I think they must be from another planet!!! I don't remember if I told you or not but the last time we went to mass, Alex was looking at the stations of the cross (which he does at every mass) but this time he noticed the picture of Jesus with the crown of thorns, he says (quite loudly) "Mom, look...It's Tarzan the nest man." Aye yeh yeh. Funny but not...
