Driving lesson or therapy?!

Just had my last lesson for this week. I ended up crying again at the end. I'm not going to focus on the negative parts, but instead he said that the first minutes were perfect. He told me that this should be prove for myself that I can do it. Then he told me about his struggle with learning to do some sort of car racing. He took my hand and walked with me to his other garage and opened the door. There was his race car in it and all the medals he won. He said that they all laughed at him because he did so bad at the beginning (as a driving instructor) and that he was not talented at all and needed lots of practice to get to this point were he is now.

So the one thing I try to remember from today is that I drove perfect (his words) during the beginning. 

(And if one person tells me that Autistic people have no emotions I would like to refer them to my poor instructor who has to deal with a crying student more than he probably likes.)

      When I was pregnant with my first we were at my in laws one evening and  talking girl names (we knew it was a girl). My sis in law says "Why don't you name her Louise?" And I was like ewwww no way! His mom pipes up and says that's her middle name. I was like oops... 😐 Happened again with my 2nd girl and my grandmother, who recommended her name, Hazel. That time I was more careful in staying neutral. 

      My mom's name is Louise. She's always gone by Lucy. I've never heard anyone call her Louise in her life. She hated her name when she was younger and now it's become pretty popular again.

      True, but national data only tells you so much. My son’s first grade class last year had two boys called Malachi and two girls called Zahlie. Neither were in the top 100 the year they were born.

       

      ”Old” names are definitely making a comeback, particularly for girls. Under the age of 8, I know kids called Evelyn, Freya, Florence, Eleanor, Alice, Adelaide, Edith, Estelle, Margot, Constance, Theodore and Herbert.

      I love Adelaide so much, if we ever have another daughter we want to use it (it's a family name) so I'm kind of sad it's getting so popular.

      But as many as she has had, wouldn't identical twins this time have the danger of twin-to-twin whatever that is called?

      Twin to Twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is a risk for any multiple pregnancy where two or more babies share the same placenta (monochorionic is the medical term). It can happen in any monochorionic pregnancy which is why monochorionic twins are monitored much more carefully. So Courtney would only be at risk for TTTS she had multiples that shared a placenta.

      I wonder if the parents will be separate from the general population while in prison.  Because even in prison, the prisoners have standards and abusing children marks you as the lowest of the low.

       

      They probably will be put in a unit with other people requiring protection from general population but unless they are in solitary confinement, chances are they will still be targeted by other people in protective custody, not all of them have been convicted of crimes against children or sex crimes.

      Okay, her "all about how awesome I am" poem bugs me. Your skin is as smooth as cotton sheets. What the hell does this even mean? It makes it sound like she woke up with the weave of the cloth imprinted on her face.
