Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician!

Where are the tortillas?

Jacob finally got a taste of his own medicine! A local grocery chain has started making their own tortillas fresh in the store. The boys REALLY like them so I buy several packages a week. They both like to put cheese between two tortillas and cooking them in the quesadilla maker we have. Elijah has even learned to make these himself!

Yesterday, each boy had tortillas and cheese for lunch. Later, I got ready to run errands and Jacob headed for the refrigerator. He finds an empty package of tortillas and yells, "ELIJAH did YOU eat the last of the tortillas?" Elijah, who was in the other room, yells back, "YEA" and giggles! Oh Jacob was not happy. In the meantime, I am laughing to myself and I say to Jacob, "Now you know how it feels to go get something to eat and have it ALL gone already." Of course, he didn't find the humor in any of this!
