Recently, I talked about Simon’s apraxia and the challenges it can present sometimes. Play titties! Well, he’s got me stumped again.
This time, I don’t think it’s necessarily apraxia, but rather some connection in his mind that makes perfect sense to him that I’m just not getting. Here we go:
Simon likes yogurt. It got to the point where I was just buying the big tubs of strawberry greek yogurt for the kids since it was cheaper than buying tons of individual one. Right?
Well, a couple of weeks ago, the store had some Chobani yogurts on sale, so I bought some for me. FOR ME. Mine, damn it. I got peach flavor. Back off, kids. “Oh, Mother, you are in such denial. We shall eat all of these yogurts and there will be none left for you.”
At home, Simon immediately grabbed one and handed it to me. “I want water bottle.” Say what now? Here, have a yogurt.
He’s now refusing to eat the yogurt from the big tub and will only eat Chobani yogurts. Whatever, he’s eating. Here’s the thing though…
He can correctly tell you every flavor of yogurt we have, except for peach. Peach Chobani yogurts are “water bottle yogurt”.
For example: “Here, George, you get raspberry. I get water bottle.”
It only happens with peach as far as I can tell. And I’m pretty sure it’s only Chobani brand, although I’ll test that at the store on Friday.
Water bottle yogurt. I have absolutely no idea what the hell this means.
