Yes, Eric turns 23 today, what the heck? Geesh I was 23 when I had him.
It does not seem that long ago that he was:
So Jeff said "smile Eric or we won't go"
So this is better, look at that danged beard, he won't shave it, we think he wants to be Dumbledore. At least we got him to shave the sides of his face. Happy Birthday Hairy, I mean Eric. We love you!
So the guys went outside and I said "hey let me take a picture of you together" Aren't my two men handsome? Cause Eric ain't a baby or a little boy anymore. Although he will be to me. We had his yearly IEP the other day, and one of our goals is to get him where he can move into a group home. If you are new to my blog, Eric is learning disabled and he also has apraxia so he won't be able to live by himself. So whenever we talk about him moving out, I get excited sometimes only cause I think , wow that means the guest bathroom will stay cleaner longer than a few hours, or I'll get up and all the left overs in the fridge will not be eaten all up, or I'll look in the freezer and not find empty ice cream bar boxes, but then I also think, oh my gosh, what if someone takes advantage of him, what if someone hurts him, and I get so scared, and think…well maybe pee on the toilet seat is not that bad…well unless I sit in it….ewwww grossss…..but you know what I mean. I guess all Mother's go through it, but with Eric he trusts everybody, and even though we try to teach him to be cautious he still thinks he is invinsible.
OK enough of my blabbering and blubbering.
Wanna hear something funny? So the guys are at the football game I ran over to Kohls and Steinmart to pick the guys up some clothes and I figured I'd go through the McDonalds drive thru. It is starting to get dark so I pull in and stop at what I think is the speaker dealie, and I almost….almost started to give my order…to the garbage can. Thank goodness I noticed it was not lit up and the menu was up further or I swear I would have shouted into it. Hello, Hello…..
Well I am gonna sign off and head to bed, I have stamp club tomorrow.
Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.
