My boy is average!!


Several of you know how discouraged I've been with these weekly PT appointments for Kostyn. It seems every week the therapist is telling me something else my son "should" be doing, or doing better. Well yesterday she decided (at my urging) to do a thorough motor skills test on him to see where he falls on the spectrum. And I'm happy to report that he's "Average"!!!

I never thought I'd be so happy to hear my son is a middle-of-the-pack guy. But this means we don't have to keep shlepping to the PT office every week so that she can torture him by giving him a toy and then taking it away, flipping him on his belly and then to his back, folding him sideways and then pulling him upright ... all the while getting annoyed ["Mr. Kostyn! No fussing!"] when he gets cranky with her.

My Monday mornings just got a whole lot brighter.

Yay! So glad he doesn't have to go through that anymore. (And he's SO much more than average!)

I believe that much of a person's life is determined by the name the parents choose. For example, could Magnus Von Magnussen grown up to be anything other than the worlds strongest man? Could Paris Hilton have been anything other than a fashion queen?

If it's pure motor skills you are after, you should rename him any of the following:

- Jackie Chan Passante
- Spartacus Passante
- Boom Boom Passante

Spartacus. Now that's a name I can get behind.

At my alma matr, David Letterman (our most distinguished alum besides Papa of Papa John's fame) has set up a scholarship for students with a C+ average. So who says average is a bad thing?
