A customer just asked about Emily - he wanted to know where things were with her health, etc.
We talked about her heart and then her feeding tube.
"Her not eating is probably more an issue of parenting," is what he said.
Clearly he knows what he's talking about.
A minute later Em came and grabbed my hand because she wanted an Otter Pop out of the freezer.
She doesn't eat them, she just likes to lick them when they're frozen.
Emily uses a little hum to communicate (one of these days I'll have to record it for you - it's adorable) and the customer heard it as Em was asking for an Otter Pop.
"She doesn't talk?"
I told him that she didn't and when he wanted to know why I explained about her chromosome deletion and how delayed speech was part of the package.
"I always knew something was wrong with you - I guess you just passed it on to your daughter."
I know he thinks he's funny ... he's not. I rolled my eyes and walked away from the conversation at that point.
Maybe I'll spray weed killer on his plants...
