kira speak

just remembered this and don't want to lose it forever.

Kira's speech path came up to me in the hall while I was doing PTA stuff and said, "I have to ask this. Do you play the tuba?"


SLP: Well, Kira swears that you do. We were reading a book that had a character playing a tuba, so I asked if anyone knew someone who played the tuba. Kira said, "Mommy!" And I said, "Your mom plays the tuba!?! Really?" And Kira said, "Really." with a smug little smile and subtle nod of her head.

(I cannot do this justice in print, but I know the exact look the SLP was referring to. And I know that Kira knows that I do not play the tuba. I also know that a certain little girl likes a little extra attention during her group speech sessions.)
