Chit-Chatting with Cody

Keep in mind that Cody is autistic as well as blind while you read these brief, yet humorous dialogues that recently took place in our home:

Don, Cody and I were sitting at the table eating lunch and engaging in casual conversation. After a minute or two of silence, Cody spoke up and asked, “Whatcha giving me dirty looks for dad?”

After Christmas, Don packed up our rocking musical reindeer along with the other decorations and Cody wasn’t a bit happy about it. He told his dad, “You’re a Jack.” (Because he refuses to swear, that’s Cody’s way of saying Jack Ass.) Then, in the same breath, Cody said, “I’m talking to you precious dad.”

Katelyn, Matt, Cody, Don and I were sitting in the living room one evening when Cody unexpectedly shot out of the recliner and said “Hey Guys?! (pause) I can’t see!”

On Any Given Weekend...

This is what goes on at our house...

Walker uses grandma's Coke tins as drums.

He eats M&M's and watches Netflix with his dad and aunt Katelyn.

The girls play with each other's hair. (By the way Talitha, this pic is going in my
"What my Family Usually Does When They See Me with a Camera" album on facebook.)

Asher sleeps in grandpa's arms.

Chase plays Bristle Blocks with his son...

...and downloads Billy Ocean, Aaron Neville and MC Hammer songs on iTunes for Cody.

Just before the kids came to the house, I started a wedding planning list for Katelyn. I should have known better than leave the document open. Chase got his hands on it (of course) and added a few things. I'm sure you can figure out which items he felt should be included.

Dog Rules

My son Casey is crazy about dogs, so when I stumbled across the book My Dog is the World's Best Dog by Suzy Becker, I thought of him. I'm going to get this printed so Casey can put it on a wall in his home.

Dog Rules

1.   The dog is not allowed in the house.

2.  OK, the dog is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.

3.  The dog is allowed in all the rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.

4.  The dog can get on the old furniture only.

5.  Fine, the dog is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with humans on the bed.

6.  OK, the dog is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.

7.  The dog can sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not under the covers.

8.  The dog can sleep under the covers by invitation only.

9.  The dog can sleep under the covers every night.

10.  Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers with the dog.

Homie was Casey's first (real) dog. He still has about a dozen stuffed dogs in a box in our garage.
