Hey, I keep my promises... eventually. (E is for Asparagus)

So I promised to explain this picture. As I mentioned a couple of posts ago We had a visitor this last weekend. I decided to make a good Easter Sunday dinner to send her off. Pork Roast, (have you tried Harmons spoon roast... if you haven't, you should, they live up to their name) mashed potatoes, salad, and asparagus. Well here we all were sitting around eating. The adults in the room were conveniently ignoring the one child not eating anything and the other making a mess very much a kin to what little Randy did with his potatoes in A Christmas Story.

When all of the sudden the messy one yells, points at me, claps her hands, and covers her mouth with them. A look of anticipation that clearly says "I can't wait until you see what I have done!" Well this got MY attention if no one else. I looked over and she pointed to the table right next to her plate. I literally screamed with delight. My wonderful and beautiful (if a little messy) autistic child has managed to take her asparagus and form the pieces into the first letter of her name! The rest of the adults looked up and squealed with delight as well and ran to get cameras. This is the result!!!



This was one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen her do!!!

Don't forget earlier that day when she signed the first letter of my name and furiously points to me. I must be good luck!

What a great accomplishment!
