Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

Tonight Angela had a difficult decision to make: Walk away from the T.V. and go to bed nicely, which would guarantee her some T.V. time tomorrow, OR make Mom unplug the T.V. in which case there would be no T.V. time tomorrow.

So a few minutes later, after I unplugged the t.v., Angela went storming to her room.

Angela: "Socks!"

Me: "What socks?"

Angela, "Socks in my room!"

Me: "What are you talking about...socks? What socks?"

Angela: "Socks no T.V. tomorrow!"

Ahhh....yes...Angela has expanded her vocabulary.  "Socks" = "sucks".

UGH! I have to unplug the TV for my typically developing teen also! It does "sock"! ;-)
