You bet. Glad to help.
If they do make one for your phone, I'd be interested to know what you think of it.
It is for my girlfriend. She seriously needs it with those clumsy little hands of hers.
go out for a walk with my friends, my child sometimes alone
complete some minor chore that i have been avoiding
put on my favorite music and sing as loud as i can
we had shabbos lunch at a very good friend of my wifes.
their oldest child, 6 1/2, has some pretty significant developmental issues that doctors have not yet been able to pin down. she cant talk very well, and she is very touchy feely to compensate. for example since she cant say "lets go play in the living room," instead she grabs your hand and pulls you along. instead of showing gratitude verbally, she gives a kiss. she is also a little physically awkward in certain ways with her body movements and her eyes. the whole thing is really sad, its a real challenge for the couple, but they handle it exceptionally well. and they have other younger kids too.
anyways, so i was really proud of how well my kids handled it. they played very nicely with her and her younger brother for a solid 3 hours. never complained or made any comments about the child, derogatory or otherwise. sure, they asked questions when we left, but while we were there they treated her like any other kid. didnt pull back when the kid dragged them from room to room, didnt freak out about her appearance, my older daughter even read books to her, all kinds of good stuff. i was very proud.
clearly my wife is doing something right.
Hmm, sounds like some kind of autism.
I thought you were not able to drive on shabbos.
she is not autistic. that much they know. hard to really put into words her situation.
i can not drive on shabbos. we walked over, 20 minutes each way. if we eat a meal out, we usually stay closer. but the wife is a real good friend of my wifes, so we have a shabbos meal together every now and again.
Fuck yeah, coffee.
This is really, really cool. I hope that my little guy (and any future little ones) proves to be as gracious and considerate as yours seem to be.
Bravo to you and Mrs. Stitch.
The suit looks great. A good fit, and the choice of shirt, tie, and shoes complements it nicely. I'm glad you posted the pic.
Kudos to you and the wife. It's great that your kids knew how to respond - it's a reflection on their upbringing. I'm sure you're proud of your kinds, and the job you've done rearing them.
I will reserve my opinion of your children until they post fit pics.
I recall a family pic that was posted a few months ago. Everyone was stunning.
kudos to the wife and to you, too.
kudos to you and the family.
