We had a lovely trip to St. Andrews Aquarium on Saturday. It was so much fun. Jake got to touch a star fish. Poor star fish lol. He just shocked me by reaching in there and grabbed it like it was no big thing and then proceded to pretend that it was a steering wheel or something. The whole time I am trying not to look too freaked out you know cause he is touching this weird icky looking thing. lol.
At the end of it all we went to the gift shop to get some souviners to take home and all was going great until I looked down to see my little Jake lining up all the toys from the display on the floor. The little guy was lying on the floor looking at all the toys from the corner of his eye. I started to put the toys back and then he grabs one truck and runs like India Jones from the giant ball right out of the shop with me chasing him down and praying silently in my head that they don't call the police. Please please please. lol. Anyway I grabbed him and brought him back to the shop and we did get him the truck. I know that probably seems wrong to get it for him anyway but I don't think that he was purposely being bad he just doesn't understand that we have to pay for it first and that he has to stay with me and not take off like that. I should probably mention he is only 3 and has classic autism and is still non-verbal. Anyway all in all we had a lot of fun and eventhough it sounds a bit hectic at the end I don't mind cause he keeps my life interesting. lol.
Happy Victoria Day everyone!
