Ice cream for lunch.
But here's the deal: we're going to the pool, for swimming lessons that you said you wanted to do each day of the week for spring break.
And we are to arrive on time.
All five days.
Yes. It's a class. You're having a lesson. Every.single.day. For thirty minutes.
It's gonna cost me and Daddy 50 dollars to get this done. Which, really is a song. No, Nathan. It's an expression. Please, Isaac, yes, I'm looking into drama camp. But we're talking about swimming. Pay attention.
Because I'm totally down for taking you guys to the pool every day for a lesson if you guys are down for it.
But here's the deal: if you choose to not go, it will cost you five dollars per class. Right. You pay me and Dad five dollars. Per class. Yes. Just like Hapkido, which is actually eight dollars per class. So, that's why swimming is a song, because it's less expensive. It's just as important. Yes, Nathan, parenting is like pushing rope.
Got it? Five dollars if you miss. Unless you're sick, then I'll cover the cost of your class. Right. Five dollars is a lot of money. So we want to be sure to get there on time and swim and listen to the teacher. Right?
Yup. That's a lot of Abby poop to pick up. I'm really thankful we have a big backyard so that we don't have to pick up Abby poop a lot. Yup. Everyone poops. And she's a big dog, so she makes big poops.
And what's awesome is that when you feed her, she goes outside and makes a bunch of poops and then you get to pick it up and earn ten cents per poop. So, really, when you feed the dog, it's like you're guaranteeing yourself some money. It's an awesome return on your investment.
But let's talk more about swimming. Let's make a social story so that Nathan's autism doesn't get too big and he gets overwhelmed and all hell will break loose and then nobody will be going anywhere, ever.
|So, we sat down and created a social story in order to try our best and be successful. Here's what we came up with.|
Oh! I know! Let's take one day at a time and see how we're feeling. I mean, you guys are on spring break, which is a vacation from being at school, so since we're on vacation, maybe we'll have ice cream for lunch!
Yes. I know your heads just exploded because I said we'd have ice cream for lunch. Yes. I'm seriously open to that. But here's the deal: we've got to follow the social story, and most importantly, we all need to earn five check marks.
