Duh, it's Peter Pan

It's common knowledge that Steven talks to himself and that it drives me crazy.  Recently he has named the person he talks to, he tells me it is Prince Charming.  So when basketball started again and I was getting ready to drop him off for practice and he was of coarse talking to his "friend", I was telling him that while he was there he should not talk to Prince Charming and he promptly informed me that he wasn't talking to Prince Charming and with his eyes rolling he said "Im not talking to Prince Charming Mom, it's Peter Pan" and by the way he said it I could tell he thought I was ridiculous to think it was the Prince, it was obviously Peter Pan.

The Hollywood Ball

Steven gets some amazing opportunities.  He got to attend a ball put on by the Global Down syndrome Foundation this summer.  His date was his princess of coarse.  What a fun night.  It was like going to a Hollywood awards show.  They walked in on the red carpet and had their photos taken. They were served a very nice meal and got to dance the night away.  There was a dance competition and even Elvis made and appearance.

It's been so long since I have posted I don't even know where to start.  Steven's most recent accomplishment is being in the Be Beautiful Be Yourself fashion show.   It was a much bigger deal than I originally thought.  I should have known it was a big deal when they told me the tickets were $500/ea?!  What!!!  Ya, $500. They did give us 1 free ticket-1, not 2?  He has 2 parents?  So since I gave birth I decided I was going to be the one that went.  It was very well done.  30 young people with Down Syndrome modeled clothing.  They were assisted by local volunteers and local celebrities.  Steven got to walk the runway with a blond Broncos cheerleader!  It was perfect.

You Suck!

Hello, it's been a while I know. I am finding it is difficult to keep up with Steven's stories with all my responsibilities. But I must share this one. So, he has been helping out with the basketball team this year. Doing jobs, and just hanging out with the team. On game days he dresses up like the team in a shirt and tie (which he loves, of coarse). So he walked in the gym the other day and the other team was just sitting on the bleachers hanging out. It was still early so they were just waiting until it was time to get dressed. Steven knew they were the opposing team so he decided to put them in their place by yelling, "You Suck, you suck", over and over. The athletic director walked in on this and was appalled. She took him aside and told him that was bad sportsman ship. He doesn't know what sportsmanship is so she tried to explain. She then told him he needed to apologize. So he went over to the team and said "I'm sorry, but YOU SUCK", to which the whole team cracked up, even the coach spewed his sandwich. Thats my boy:)
