Just a few moments ago my office phone rang. I picked up and before I could say hello I hear, "MOM, IT'S HERE. MY LAPTOP IS BACK." Sarah was screaming so loudly I had to hold the phone away from my ear. "Is it working?" I ask. (I'm not sure why I asked, I could already hear music from the Disney website playing in the background). "Yes, and the mouse works and the keyboard is new. Gotta go now, bye mom." "Sarah, wait, what did you do at the Food Bank today?" I hear a heavy disgusted sigh..."Spaghetti and meatballs, O.K? Bye mom"
And so it goes...here's some mom truth. I really didn't need to know what she did at the Food Bank, I just love the fact that we can have real conversations on the phone now. Are you familiar with that expression, good things come to those who wait. How true. I remember questioning from time to time, if the speech therapy was really all that important. You betcha it is. One day, you too will be amazed at the conversations you will have with your son or daughter.
