Today, I volunteered in J’s preschool class. We sang a groovy song , Rainbow Around Me. J merrily belted out the lyrics of the song. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gk1xx9dhkhs) He sang louder than everybody and did the body movements that coordinate with the song.

After school we went and had a snack…french fries and flavored shaved ice. We encountered our cousin Isaiah. J was excited to see him there working the register. He asked Melissa Isaiah’s coworker ” Did you know we know Isaiah?” While we were eating snack he talked endlessly. We had to leave when he began to try to climb on the furniture.

Next, we went to a discount store to search for my interview outfits. I told him I wanted his help and input on the outfit for my interviews. He immediately said ” You need a black shirt and black pants.” I refuted that black would be too hot because it will be in the 90’s. ” He told me ” You have to wear a gown because you are a princess. Princess wear high heels, too!”  We discussed how I needed something professional and comfortable. I also told I didn’t want to be a princess I am a queen and he is my prince. He insisted that I am a princess because he is my prince.

We ended up picking a coral blouse, magenta blouse, and black lace blouse and brown trousers. He persisted that I get a black shirt. So, that I can be a Black Superhero.

It was a lot of having his input on my clothing choices.. he wanted to pick out his clothes from the women’s section. I had to explain that the store was divided into different categories and also how the clothes in the women’s aisle were too big for him.. He then said when he get’s older he will wear big clothes. He saw a Mickey Mouse Club hooded sweatshirt for himself he wanted to purchase. I loved listening to his fast paced monologue, with some occasional questions for me. Lately, he has been experiencing hyperspeech. I understand it is a symptom of ADHD, however, I enjoy listening to him babble away. I remember the scary times when he was speechless, incoherent, and lost in his own world.
