Soundtrack To A Birth

March 18, 2015

A few years ago for Steven’s birthday, I did a compilation tape of songs that had been at number one on his birthday. Every year, he makes me do the same tape and he listens to itit on the day before his birthday.

He’s playing it now and the annual narrative has completely floored his support worker. Steven is especially keen on the song from his actual birth date – Dub Be Good To Me by Beats International. The commentary is the same every year:

“Here comes Steven Neary.

Steven Neary is not a seed anymore.

Steven Neary is coming out of mummy’s fanny.

Mummy is shouting and holding daddy’s hand.

Steven Neary is in the world now.

Nice to meet you Steven Neary.

Hello Norman Cook”.

  1. I love the way you make use of the things that Steven relates to, in order to help him construct an understanding of the world that makes sense to him, on his terms.

    Hope you both enjoy a great many ‘perfect moments’ today.

    Happy birthday Steven.
