Perseveration is a constant with TLoML due to her cognitive issues. It has varied in the past from Barney to Raffi to her object of obsession for the past couple of years, Santa Claus. Lately he took a back seat to the Christmas tree. She kept asking when we would put it up. We told her right after Thanksgiving but she kept asking every day numerous times. So yesterday after Mrs. Metal Dad left to help her mother move into her new residence at the retirement village TLoML was supposed to help me decorate the tree. She helped by playing with her dog and stuffed toy Rudolph while listening to Christmas carols.
She's also obsessed with batteries these days. She has any number of dolls and toys which make noise or do stuff and she's constantly asking us to check the batteries. Double A, you know.
