So Mikey has informed me that he thinks we should go to a hotel again. When I told him we would not be able to go to a hotel every weekend, he proceeded to tell me for about 5 minutes all the things that we would take along and do while we were at the hotel. He is for sure starting to understand where things are on his talker... and is beyond adorable (sorry 16 year old male son who probably doesn't want me describing him that way) when he gets something in his head he wants to say and begins looking through all the folders for the word he has in his head with his little pointer finger over his mouth in 'the thinking pose'. As cute as he is, this weekend we are learning that even when you use your talker you are not going to get every single thing you ask for. And I'm learning (again) that even when I say no, Mikey is going to persist with finding other ways to ask... as he later came down not only with the suitcase but with the suitcase packed full of pretty much every item that he had listed earlier on his talker.
