I have gone back to work full time which has been a big adjustment around here. Well, a big adjustment for most of us. I have been leaving for work before Ayden Jane is even up in the mornings often times. I don't get to pick her up from school. It's strange.

In all honestly, Ayden Jane gives Gary a really hard time. It's funny, in a way. Probably not to Gary, but still. Bascially, I have been primary care giver for as long as Ayden Jane can remember. Gary has worked a ton of hours and mostly has played with Ayden Jane and spent great time with her in a sort of... give me a break role. Ayden Jane simply just does not yet trust that he has any idea what he is doing. I mean, want to play a board game? Dad's the go to. Want to swim out in the ocean to the deep, deep? Dad is happy to take charge of that. Need someone to be spoiled rotton? AJ knows Dad is always there.

It has been a few weeks and it seems they are begining to find their own rhythm. Hopefully he is no longer hearing, "that's not how mom does is" too many times each morning getting ready for school.

Aside from the adjustment, Ayden Jane has had a few pretty hysterical comments lately. I figure I really need to start writing them down so here are two Ayden Jane 'quotes'.

Ayden Jane took the CogAT testing. It is a test to determine eligiblity for the gifted and talented program. Honestly, it makes no difference to me if she even takes the test, but I just let her roll with it and give it a go. You know, sort of like practice. After it was done she was talking about it one evening.

"I finished one section and the directions said to go back and check your answers so I erased them all but then ran out of time to do them again." True PWS brain moment. So very literal.

Saturday we were riding over to grandma's house to help with a few things. Ayden Jane started talking about Grandpa (who died last summer) She asked, "How did they know Grandpa was dead?" I answered, "well, he wasn't breathing so they had to go to the hospital." Then Ayden Jane asked me again, but answered her own question with, "Did they know he was dead because all the light went out of him and only darkness was left in his body?" She just gets things on a different level than the rest of us.
