(No, the above photo is not of me but it does look kind of fun to try this! I thought it expressed well how I'm feeling. I'm wondering what bet she lost, or was it truth or dare?)

When our son Johnny was around 2 years old he used to always yell "Stuck" only he would really drag it out. The funny thing was he was never stuck but wanted us to run over and save him anyways. We thought it was funny and had no idea why he did it. (He did many other not so funny things that we now know is likely because of his autism). One time he went out to lunch with my parents and was sitting in a high chair. My Dad had the nerve to say the word "no" to him and he burst into tears and yelled Stuuuuuuuuuuuuck. We all have a good laugh about it sometimes and will playfully yell Stuuuuuuuuuuuuuck about things.

I was thinking about that this morning when I was thinking about how our adoption paper work just seems stuck. It was all I could do this morning to not throw open our door and yell as loud and long as I can "Stuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck." As a matter of fact I just might do it, might be therapeutic. :) Do you think our neighbors would call the police? Haha. Can you imagine me trying to explain that one?

If the neighbors haven't called the police on you up to this point, I doubt the stuuuuccckkkkk would really set them off :)
LOVE YOU, yell for me too!

I resisted (not arrest) but the screaming out my door. I would have done it when I was younger...I'm totally losing my nerve in my old age. Then again... I'm seriously considering packing some rolls of duct tape for our trip to Haiti and seeing how many kids will let us stick them to the walls. Is that considered abuse, hmmm. I think the Nannies would go for it. :)
