kt, along with her new PCA, have a schedule each week to make dinner on Monday & Thursday evenings. Just another life skill that we are trying to teach kt. I ask kt & PCA to put together a menu along with a shopping list needed to make their dinners. kt came to me so excited because she decided that Thursday would be a roast in the "crackpot". "Mom, I love when you put a roast in the crackpot - it comes out so tender & juicy." The poor child, she's thrilled to have come up with such a good idea for dinner & I - husband is at the other end of the kitchen doing the same thing. I had to stop myself because kt's frustration was getting rather high & I had burst her "bubble", if you will, to explain it was crockpot not crackpot. kt started laughing & walking off (in good humor) to put that word in her list of words that need work. She has a notebook for words that she mispronounces or has trouble spelling. Helps her remember. You all know how good those crackpot dinners are....may plan one for tonight.
