I woke up really early today. I wanted to play on the purple computer so I kept myself awake. When I heard my little sister get up, I got up too so I could ask my dad if I could play. He said it was too early and I would have to wait until 10:00 am. I needed to keep myself awake so I decided to act out one of the movies I really like. I like acting out Honey I Blew Up The Kid! because there is a lot of crashing in that movie, so I will crash things too, and I love crashing...a lot.
My mom and dad do not like crashing at all. They took my big trucks away because I was throwing them while standing on top of the back of the couch. It was the best way to act like I'm in the movie. I like to be Adam when he is a giant toddler. I also like the part where the real cars look like toy cars in giant Adam's hands. So I had to stand up there to throw the trucks down. It was the only way I could get the truck to look like it was the one in the movie, and for me to feel like I'm as big as Adam.
Since I didn't have my big cars and trucks, I had to come up with some other ideas of what to use to act the movie out. I decided I would use my little sisters stuffed cat to be "Big Bunny" and I used her dollhouse to be the house. That would be fun to throw on the floor and hear it crash.
I especially like anticipating the reaction of my mom and dad. They run in shouting, "Stevie, no throwing toys!" and then they tell me I will have a time out if I keep doing it. But I like it so much and I need to keep myself awake so I did it again. Then I got a time-out and they said I couldn't play with the computer even though it was 10:00 am, because I had to go to my room. I couldn't calm down though. I kept playing loudly in my room so I could stay awake and wouldn't miss my time on the computer.
Around 10:30 am I was finally calm enough that they said I could play on the purple computer. I tried to find You-Tube videos of Honey I Blew Up The Kid so I could memorize the script better and learn the sound effects and background music. My dad said that was not allowed so I opened Garage Band and iMovie, and started creating my own videos.
I like to sing songs in multiple parts and then play them all together to make the different harmonies. Sometimes, if I don't like the words the song has, I will change them. I recorded Math-U-See's Skip Counting Facts song about the multiples of 7. I like to do the multiples differently so I recorded myself singing and saying, "7-14-21-28-35-38-43-51-58-63-70". It drives everyone crazy when I say the wrong numbers. I know the right ones, but I like these numbers in the song. So I recorded my voice correcting the numbers in Garage Band and blend it with the track of the Skip Counting Facts by Steve Demme. Then I imported it into iMovie to make the video. When I played the "Official Song" for everyone, my mom called me a stinker. I think she really liked it though.
When my time was up on the computer, I wanted to make it my own choice to end the time. I don't want anything else to make me stop when I am not ready. So I do something that will make my parents take the computer away from me. At about 5 minutes left of my time, I take the computer and turn it over on it's side. I used to just throw it off of the table but then I lost the computer for a forever-long time. I don't want that to happen so I just turn it on it's side to make my time finish on my own doing. Then I run to my room as fast as I can with my hands covering my ears because I KNOW it is coming: Mom and Dad are going to call after me and tell me not to do that! I like that part too. It's kind of like my routine now. It's just what I do.
But this time, my mom said I could not have the computer again at 6:00 pm because I tilted it on it's side again. I am supposed to be gentle. Now, I have to earn it back by being good, and since I lost it at 6:00 pm, I have to earn it for playing at 7:00 pm-- if I am good. I was not happy about that at all. That was a change in the schedule that I did not want to happen.
Then I remembered how tired I was because I didn't sleep much last night. I decided to watch Doc McStuffins and lay down on the couch. Now that I have to wait so many hours to get my computer time again, I might as well rest up so I will be awake for it. Plus, my new in-home supports person is coming and I don't want to play with her yet. Maybe I will just sleep through her time here and I won't have to play. Anyway, I want to play with my Mommy, not her.
