Beware...

I took the boys to the park early this morning to feed the ducks. It was very nice outside as it has cooled off. K.C. liked feeding the ducks :) After we went to the park, Big Brother asked if we could stop at the supermarket to get something to drink. We did just that. K.C. has been doing an excellent job in the stores these days. As we walked down the aisles, K.C. quickly spotted a very small video screen and ran to press the button. I guess it was used for advertising Ritz crackers for the holidays. This little screen played just like a television and I had the hardest time getting K.C. away from the darned thing! Just a head's up to all the Mom's and Dad's of Autistic children, BEWARE of these little screens in the stores during the holidays! K.C. pressed the button a bunch of times and just when you think the little screen has played itself out, it does start up again and again after about a minute. I'll have to watch for those when going to the store from now on :)

K.C. looks like he is rally enjoying feeding the ducks. He's so cute! Thanks for the warning about the mini-tv advertisements in the stores. I will have to watch out for those because I am sure I would have a hard time getting Andrew away from those as well.

Tina, I laughed through this whole post! I laughed at the thought of Conor finding one of those stupid video screens because he'd do the same thing and would then say, "I have to watch it again! I have to watch it again!" Then, I laughed while watching KC feed the ducks. It was more like, "Fine, Mom. There. I threw the bread. Happy?" Then, of course, you actually have a video of KC pressing the button on the Ritz cracker video thing. Oh my gosh, so funny!!! Thanks so much for sharing! :-)

I just love it when you post videos of the boys. K.C. is such a handsome fella and I love to see him do his own thing. He did exactly what Griffin does when feeding the ducks and exactly the same thing with the little video in the store. I know that Griffin would have had a hard time leaving it alone since he loves everything that is on a TV/video screen.

Lots of hugs!!
