“pethro-neato”

Here it is. The time has come to pack it up and begin our journey. In two days we’ll be on our way to Boston. We’ve been asking Watson if he wants to ride in an airplane. He repeats back “air-pane”. We ask do you want to go to Boston? He repeats “bos-ton”. Then we ask if he wants to see Dr. Pedro del Nido and he repeats some sort of gibberish “pethro-neato”. It’s a pretty funny routine. I don’t think there’s anyway to prepare him for whats about to happen, but just in case, I’m trying. I’ve been putting spongebob bandaids on his chest to get him used to the feeling of having something there. He calls it his “stic-ker” and really likes to show it off. I guess that’s a good thing. I think he’ll be proud of his scar. We were packing his clothes last night and he started to pile up all of his stuffed animals right on top of the bag. I just wonder what is going on in his little head. He must have some sort of idea what the bag means. I try to tell myself that we’re going to make the best of this and everything is going to be fine. Anxiety is turning to anticipation. I’m slowly feeling like “Let’s do this”.
