Update~ Mr. Sneeze in Your Face

Update~ Mr. Sneeze in Your Face

sneeze cover up

Mr. Sneeze in Your Face passed along his cold to me which is kicking my butt.  Nick knows how to sneeze in his arm.  I saw him practicing it in front of the bathroom mirror the other day.  He just thinks it’s funny to give you a direct hit.

Needless to say, I am under the weather, thanks Nick. Down syndrome and autism has its challenges.  This weekend was a struggle, I’ll leave it at that.  I was planning on writing about the recent re-evaluation we did on Nick’s speech device.  I’ll save that for next time when my head is clear.

This re- blog will be a nice tee up, and provides a background of Nick’s speech and methods we’ve used for his communication over the years @ https://nickspecialneeds.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/blog-45can-we-talk/

Hope you are all surviving this cold season and frigid winter. I’m doing shots of Emergen-C and Echinacea tea hoping to turn the corner soon.  After all, I’ve got to keep up with Nick!   Thank you for reading and sharing Nick’s world.  That’s what is in my foggy noggin this week.
