Alice and I have been doing a lot of shopping at Big Y. If you have read this blog recently, you know that the staff at Big Y has been very patient and accommodating with Alice. This is great and I like to make sure that the management in the store knows it. I made a point of passing on just how good things are to the company management.
Alice’s shopping list has grown to 10 items and you can see that there are a few challenging words. She had no problems reading the list and as usual Alice did a wonderful job. She knew where the items all were and needed only basic support and few redirections to get it done.
I was a crafty parent today because I knew that Big Y had a surprise waiting for Alice today. Earlier in the week, Betti Boggis contacted me directly and asked for a head shot of Alice for a gift they were going to give her. I made sure that we did the shopping first so that Alice wouldn’t be distracted by the surprise. And what a surprise it was.
While we waited in the checkout line, Alice was giggling and making squee noises and showing her new ID badge to anyone she could. It was a fantastic experience.
