[ - ] 5.5 y.o. ds keeps telling dh and I that we said something slightly different than we did. I'll say "seat," and ds will say "You said see." He also says "what" quite frequently. Is this a sign of an auditory processing problem, or just normal 5 y.o. stuff? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Last week an acquaintance invited me to see SATC yesterday (over email.) Said she and a bunch of her gal friends were going. I bought my ticket online and was going to meet them at the theatre. The day before she emails me and says she's sick w/ a cold and can't go. I think it's a little weird to cancel so early but whatever, I went by myself. As I'm walking in, I see her and a bunch of her gal friends, and I swear she totally turns her head as if she saw me and was avoiding me. Isn't that weird? It's not like we're great friends or anything, and I don't even know her other friends! 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
