I haven't posted many of Lindsay's quotes lately and I need to make sure I get them down on here so I don't forget them all together. So here goes....
Today we were riding in the car and she was playing on her iPad and chatting away....while simultaneously singing along to the Disney Parks soundtrack CD that Zach was playing in the front seat.
I had to make a stop at CVS and when I turned the car off and all was quiet for about 30 seconds she said,
"Mom, are you autistic...or just me and Zach?" I almost laughed out loud because I thought....Who the heck knows WHAT I am! LOL! Some days I'm not sure if I'm coming or going.... Hmmm...could be!
I said, "Well, no I'm not. Why do you ask?" She said, "Because you told me that having autism means that we are very special....well....you're very special." (Ok...I got choked up...) I said, "Well, thank you Linz. I think you are very special too". Then she said what really choked me up.
She said, "Well, autism isn't so bad. Don't worry."
Then tonight we were on our way home from Old Town after having dinner and she said, "Oh! I almost forgot to tell you! I know exactly what I want for my birthday!" (Now let me just enlighten you....Linz talks about her birthday for most of the year...where we will eat for her birthday....what kind of party she wants to have....what gifts she'd like to get....etc.....etc......) So as September 2nd gets closer the birthday wishes tend to increase at quite a rapid pace.
So...I said, "Oh really? what do you want??? A car?"
She laughed and said, "Oh Mom! Don't be silly! I want suspenders."
Ok...Mike and I laughed out loud. Mike said, "Why do you want suspenders?" and she said, "Well because I want to dress like the Alpine people do, of course!" (dead serious!)
So...as hard as it is for me to believe that Lindsay is going to be 20 years old this year....it's even harder to figure out where the HECK I'm going to find suspenders! Do they make them in PINK??
Wishing you a magical evening,
