Audrey the Media Socialite

Or should that be social media-ite?  I've already well-documented Audrey's love of texting and her outreach efforts to include both kitties and cats in the social-media-osphere.  But texting isn't the only social media that she's dabbled in.

A while ago, she took to posting entries to my Facebook page...mostly random links to strange cartoons.  I didn't discover her posts until well after the fact, and thought it was awesome that none of my friends had commented.  They were just sitting there meeting radio silence.  C'mon, not even one "like"?  Once I let everyone know that they were Audrey's posts, she finally got some Facebook love:



Then this week I caught her composing a tweet on my Twitter page...
on tuesday i have fun at school again today and i said goodbye to the tv and at the funeral home i said goodbye to the roses this time and i said bye to everything
She's big on bitching about "goodbyes" lately, where goodbye = transition that I did not want to make.  Only Audrey would not want to say goodbye to a funeral home.  Hell, only Audrey could even spell funeral home.  It was over 140 characters though, so it would have to be truncated to this...
on tuesday i have fun at school again today and i said goodbye to the tv and at the funeral home i said goodbye to the roses this time and i
...which would have just made no sense at all.  She didn't hit the send button, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.  For those of you that follow me on Twitter, I hope that you will be able to differentiate between Audrey's bitter airing of grievances vs. my bitter airing of grievances.

Speaking of which, Audrey has been learning about identifying her emotions in a new ABA program.  She's being encouraged to write in a journal (= type in a Word document) when she is feeling irritated or mad about something.  So far there are just two entries:

It makes me irritated when I have to play with the chords (= don't nag me to practice the piano)
It makes me irritated when lauren Johnson get the birthday cake match ( = I don't care if I win the matching game, I just always have to get the match with the pictures of birthday cakes)
I'm thinking this journal could be the beginning of her blogging career...the Autism Army Brat Tells All.  Uh oh.

  1. LOL! That's awesome! She should start a blog. I bet she'd have 1,000 followers in a week's time! I would suffer from serious blog envy over her blog! LOL!

    BTW, I have to look you up on Facebook!

  6. Our kids creating their own 'tell-all' blogs? That's terrifying! They could blackmail us from here to eternity!
    But at least Audrey's blog would have cute video clips : )

  7. I fear the day Georgia figures out how to work my facebook... At least Audrey didn't post anything creepy. If her tweets/journal entries are any indication of her writing ability - I'm her newest blog follower!

  8. I find it hilarious that none of your facebook friends mentioned the odd missives mysteriously appearing on your page. I can't believe not one of them was even the least bit concerned for your sanity. Anyhoo, I'm ready to start a kids' blog network whenever you are. The posts would be, um, unusual to say the least.

  9. The kid is so bright! Definitly more techno-sav than me! I'm sure it has it's downside but at least that's one thing you don't have to worry about right? No struggling with reading, spelling, writing?
    Meanwhile if I have to buy one more 1st grade level easy reader for my 3rd grader and then bribe her to read it, I'm gonna puke.

    btw,I think autismarmybrat is the only other blog I would actuall follow. :)

  11. "hope that you will be able to differentiate between Audrey's bitter airing of grievances vs. my bitter airing of grievances."

    Oh just think what you could get away with -- you could write ANYTHING and blame it on Audrey, I love that!

  12. I would get her her own Facebook page. Just make sure only "Friends" can view it. Not sure about Twitter. That's a little more public than I'd feel comfortable with.

    Love the journal idea. She's definitely not afraid to communicate.

  13. The only way to get me to join facebook -- Audrey initiates a friend request.

  14. After Audrey was irritated at me for getting the birthday cake match she won the game. She then said "Lauren did you win?" I say no to give her the satisfaction she's looking for and then she says "I win. I can handle this."

    She makes me laugh everyday!! :)

  15. I think it is wonderful that Audrey is finding different ways to express herself. You seem like a very involved and patient Mom and that is something that I can totally relate to. I'm glad I found you through Mom Loop.
