Shock (and) Therapy

Like most kids his age, Gaetano just loves to touch things when we're out shopping. A few nights ago I felt like a recording stuck on a loop playing the words, "Gaetano, please don't touch. Don't touch please. Gaetano, didn't I say don't touch?".

As we walked through the store I noticed that I had encountered some static electricity and decided to use it to my advantage. The next time he touched something, I reached over and touched his arm.

His eyes widened and he just looked at me like, "how did you do that?! " Then in my best matter-of-fact/trying-not-to-laugh tone I told him, "Did you feel that? Didn't I tell you 'don't touch'? I shocked you. Mama has super powers." He wasn't sure if I was teasing or serious, so I guess he decided to play it safe and not touch anything the rest of the shopping excursion.

I thought for sure he would know I was teasing... Hope he doesn't have this to get over in therapy some day!

Gaetano's reaction to the MAX ads

I can't believe I forgot to blog this, so rather than update the original post...

I showed Gaetano the MXDJ and told him to look at all the pages. He flipped through them and commented about various things that he saw. When he came to the "MAX is Angela Buraglia" ad, he said to me. "That looks like you mama... That is you!" It was too cute :-)
