BAIS HILLEL AND BAIS SHAMAY
Our 2 Bais Medrash boys were learning home during lockdown and their sessions were peppered with lebediga Torah arguments.
When Yom Tov arrived, 12-year-old Elisheva, who has Down syndrome, made seating arrangements for the Yom Tov meals and placed her two brothers at the 2 opposite ends of the table ‘because they argue and bother each other too much’! 😂
SPECIAL NEEDS VOCABULARY
Our baby, Eidy, has chronic ear infections and cries a lot, as in a lot. This morning, at an unearthly hour, as she was kvetching, 12-year-old Surala with DS woke up and said, “Woah! She is a challenge!”
Postscript: Let me tell you – it was the warmest empathy I have received in a while. 😅
My kids suggested that I make overnight potato kugel. Avrumi, age 11 with DS, yelled, “YAY!”, so we asked him ‘why the excitement; you know what it is?’. He said, “Yes! You eat kugel all night!” 😆
