“Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream”, she said
“The one that makes me laugh”, she said
Threw her arms around my neck
“Show me how you do it? And I’ll promise you
I’ll promise that I’ll run away with you, I’ll run away with you”
The Cure -Just Like Heaven
I want a cure for everything, an answer to any problem. My mind works that way. If it’s broken, why is it broken and how the hell do I fix it. Don’t you want to cure things?
My son, Bob, wouldn’t answer to his name. Let’s ask him in 500 different ways to get him to respond. That doesn’t work, let’s go to a specialist. First, an audiologist that doesn’t prove anything other than he can hear. Moving on….next specialist…developmental pediatrician..nope..no autism ..speech and language delay. Ok, let’s cure this! Speech therapy here we come! Still no cure!
Now I am scurrying, how do I cure this, fix it? Truth is, no one can cure anything when it comes to this journey. ABA, speech therapy , OT, NT preschool with an aid, nope none of that. Because there is nothing to cure. There is only opportunity to learn and grow, not fix it!
Just like heaven, just like a dream, it’s all good. Go with it!
Hugs and love,
