I think it's fairly evident I was not pleased with our appointment the other day, for various reasons. I'll leave Nolan out of it for the moment and concentrate on Asher.
Without getting into too many details, I will just say that the word obvious was far overused - in terms of things that are apparently "obvious" that Asher will NOT be able to do.
Umm, pardon? The kid is 2. TWO. Not 10, or even 5. TWO. Sure, some things are possible, or even likely that he won't be able to do, at least not in the traditional sense. But how is anything obvious about his future at this point, other than it is obvious he will have to work harder than most of us!
I was upset, I still am, but it has just strengthened my resolve (eww, sorry, I sound like George W. Bush when I use that term) to prove everyone wrong. Or more like to prove RIGHT the 99% of people who actually BELIEVE in Asher.
Obvious - that word better NEVER again be used in reference to Asher (or any of my kids for that matter) unless they are speaking about how obviously sweet, smart and beautiful they are!
