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.


  1. I needed the smile this morning -- in fact, it was a laugh and it's released me from my "bunk" or "funk." Thank you, Maggie!

  2. Absolutely awesome! So proud of Maggie!
