We gots big plans for you, 2011...
Parenting on the Autism spectrum, while trying to survive Murphy's Law one day at a time.
We work out together all the time...
Which brings me to TBML. The Beautiful Miss Lilac.
Lilac was a rescue from a vet hospital. She was caught in a trap, and has 3 1/2 legs. Jaysen was hesitant about having a kitty with 3 legs. He kept thinking she was going to bleed all over the place. I had to explain to him that she was well healed, and assured him there would be no blood. He was okay with it, and came with me to pick her up.
I was trying to think of names for her- I loved the name Isosceles, "Sosi" for short. So I was calling her Sosi. Except... every time I called her Sosi, Jaysen would correct me "Mom...her name is Lilac". Uh...yeah.
Those of you who know me in real life, know I cannot have a cat named Lilac. Lilac? Seriously? No. I name my pets after serial killers. I've had Gacy, Albert, Dahmer, Henry... I cannot have a cat named Lilac. Ugh.
Yet, my son insists.
And he usually wins.
So it's Lilac. Kind of. I made the rule that if he insists on Lilac, we must preface it with "The Beautiful Miss". But I still call her Sosi. Sometimes I get confused and call her Lily. And yes, he still corrects me. Whatever her name is, she is itty-bitty, and the sweetest thing ever!
So here she is...The Beautiful Miss Lilac, Isosceles, Lily-girl.
Is never too tired for some kitty-love!

And to those whom I am missing... I love you dearly.
