Maggie has a whole new page of slang sayings on her dynavox. One of her fellow students, from the ranks of the typical students, helped develop this page. I heard about it and a couple of days last week Nurse Janice asked if Maggie used it at home. I meant to go into the device and look at the page, but I kept forgetting.
Saturday morning, we were picking out songs for the "Maggie Mix 2011." I was trying out different songs hoping to sneak in a few I like because I know I will be listening to this play list all year. I played a song and looked hopefully at Maggie. She turned to her dynavox and said:
"Mom. Seriously? This is bunk."
My mouth fell open in surprise. When I recovered I said in mock fury, "What did you say to me?" She laughed and hit the switch again to repeat the phrase. Then she hit L O L and laughed her head off.
I was impressed. My non verbal child is mouthing off.
Funny, I don't remember being so pleased when the boys did that.
