Several months ago, my PDD-NOS son was really excited and told me that he can “get a free scooter!!!!” I didn’t get what he was talking about, then one afternoon, the commercial came on and he yelled, “MOM MOM MOM!!!”
It was a scooter store commercial lol. Here’s the questions:
- Do health issues limit your mobility? “YES!” he screamed at the TV
- Is it difficult to get to the bathroom on your own? “YES!” he screamed at the TV
- Do you feel like a bother to others due to your lack of mobility? “YES!” he screamed at the TV, and my heart broke a little bit.
- Have you fallen in the past 12 months? “YES!” he screamed at the TV
“If you answered YES to any of these questions you may qualify for a free scooter!”
Had to explain to him that these were for old people not young kids. He was so disappointed 😦 he really thought he was getting his own scooter that he could drive around and I couldn’t possibly say no because it’s FREE. He said, “When I’m old, I can get one?” And I told him, while maintaining a straight face, “If you need one, honey, you’ll get one.”
At least he’s paying attention, right?
