The Popular Girl At The Party

– What’s up guys welcome to the vlog. We are getting ready for a party, that’s why there’s a pink
flamingo and a slice of pizza. And our Dunkin’ Donut float. We have a tradition, if you wanna call it tradition this is our second year doing it, therefore it’s a tradition, of inviting over the buddies and the camp leaders and stuff like that, from Camp I Am Special from Abbie’s camp just to kinda say thank you, and like a end of the
year celebration thing, you guys have your own
parties though right? – Yes. – [Asa] That happened, that’s– – Some of them are–
– Becka’s here about that. – Y’know. – It’s not gonna be that
kinda party Becka, understand? Yeah so we’re gonna be having a good time hanging out by the pool. Y’know wanna invite everybody over. If you guys remember last year’s party, I won’t be riding any skateboards. – Oh yeah, that’s right. – Yep, that’s when I broke
my ribs on the skateboard. If you haven’t seen that video, I’ll link it right up here. It was a bad fall. Veggie straws. (crunching) I like how you put them half in your bowl, half on the table. – [Summer] And she’s still asking to eat. – I have one last thing
for you to hang up. – [Asa] I see you standing
there holding that like waiting, waiting for me. – I have the stool in the spot
and I have the hooks ready. – [Asa] Okay. (laughing) – I just need a good looking guy to hang this up for me. Do you know where I can find one? – [Asa] Nope. – ‘Kay. – [Asa] Did she surprise you? Look who’s here! – [Isaiah] She got so pumped! – [Asa] I missed her reaction. – She was like, doing her
hand thing, and y’know. – [Asa] So excited! – Oh my gosh. That was so cute. Mackenzie walked in and she was like. (makes high pitched noise)
– Yeah she freaked out. (screams) (laughs) Oh it was so adorable. – Little itsy bitsy spider. – [Mackenzie] Okay, lock it? – She was like yeah she’s here, now I can have all the cookies! Can you believe it Ab? It’s like camp at your house. I think everybody’s here,
it’s kinda madness out there. Look at all these people. Of course Abbie’s the most popular one, she’s got a little huddled group. What a coincidence, this is the guy that told me to get on the skateboard and made me break my
ribs, you remember that? – Round two today. – No, it’s so not happening. The skateboards are broken, I can’t find them I lost
them during the move, sorry. (laughing) You all get tired of treading water? Like everybody’s on this side of the pool. (chattering) (laughing) You can’t say sweet things until I have the camera on, you know that. – I just said aw, both of our
kids are in their happy place. – They are.
– They’ve both found so much joy at camp I Am Special. – I know.
– So, thank you guys. – [Asa] Isaiah found such
an awesome group of friends. And then Abbie, oh my gosh, she’s so happy everybody’s here. – I know. Look at her, she’s just like. – [Asa] I know, she’s definitely
the most popular one here. (mumbling) (screams) – I’m winning! I win. (yelling) (screaming) (bubbling) (chattering) (laughing) That was pretty much– (speaker is drowned out by other speakers) (laughing) It was like six dudes
drowning right there. (chattering) – [Asa] Shoot it, shoot it! – Look, throw it like up there. (cheering) – [Isaiah] Abbie! (cheering)
(splashing) (Abbie vocalizes) (laughing) – [Asa] Shoot it Ab. – Shoot it! – [Asa] Shoot it Ab! – [Group] Abbie, Abbie, Abbie. (cheering) – She blocked you! – Try again, okay! – [Group] Abbie, Abbie,
Abbie, Abbie, Abbie, Abbie, Abbie, Abbie!
(cheering) – [Asa] How’s that feel? All those college kids
and high school kids chanting your daughter’s name. – I know. – It’s something isn’t it?
– So sweet. They’re just good kids. – [Asa] Good kids. – [Priscilla] Look at you! – Look at me. – [Priscilla] All right,
ready to feed these kids? – [Asa] This is a lotta pizza. – [Priscilla] Right? There was no way I was cooking. (laughing) And we don’t have a grill yet, so, this is the next best thing. – Yup. – [Priscilla] It feeds a lotta people. And we have a lotta people. – They eat a lot. Teenagers and young
adults, they eat a lot. – [Priscilla] Yep, they do. – They’re all like broke, y’know they’re teenagers
and broke college kids, so I figured whatever we had left over they can take home with ’em, y’know? – [Priscilla] They’ll this
for the rest of the weekend. – Who put you in charge? – [Priscilla] Okay, ready? – Come on! (chattering) – [Priscilla] Three, two, one. ♪ You’re a nice guy ♪ ♪ I’ll think about it maybe ♪ ♪ XO baby ♪ ♪ Uh oh here we go ♪ (laughing)
– Did we get it? – [Priscilla] Did we get it? Look at Josh, look we get it? So, Marlena Mertz, that’s
who you guys need to go– (yelling) – [Isaiah] Guys for Tik Tok. Flash for Tik Tok guys.
– I hate this. – Report her!
– They’re very– – She’s kinda Tik Tok famous. – [Priscilla] She is. – I think she’s like
really Tik Tok famous, like she’s just saying that. – [Asa] Legit Tik Tok famous. – Are we doing it? (laughing) I’m sorry. (grunts)
(laughing) – You can’t screw it up, you’re– (speaker is drowned out by chattering) (chattering)
(yelling) (upbeat music) – Aw, two!
– What’d you get Abbie? – She opened a friend float. – A flamingo.
– It’s a chicken. – A cockatoo.
(making chicken noises) – It’s a cockatoo. (chattering)
(laughing) – [Black Shirt Guy] Wrong animal noise. – Abbie, it’s so–
– Well what noise does a cockatoo make? (impersonates a cockatoo) (laughing) Sounds accurate. What an amazing party! – Yeah!
(cheering) – Everybody’s gone, we had a great time. So I was just watching Marlena’s Tik Tok. How cool is it that she’s Tik Tok famous and most of her content is ASL? – Yeah.
– Yup. – That’s so stinking cool, it’s like an account built
around inclusion, y’know? It’s so awesome, I love that. (Isaiah is drowned out by Abbie) The people that we have
surrounded ourselves with are just incredible people. – [Priscilla] They are. – I’m so fortunate to have
those people in our lives. I feel so fortunate. – Abbie loved having everybody around. – [Asa] Yeah, she did. – It was so stinkin’ cute. – [Asa] She kinda threw bit of a fit when everybody left. – Yeah, she totally did. (Abbie yelling) – [Asa] Guess what, we’re
gonna see them tomorrow Abbie, when you show off your talent. Did you have a great day? Did you have a good day? Can you say bye? Aw, I’m glad you had a good day, bed? Yes, that’s coming too. Bed soon. – [Summer] She keeps saying all done. – [Asa] All done, yeah. All done for the day. – Yeah her eyes are like bloodshot from being in the pool all day. (laughing) – Aw, she’s smiling. Sometimes when she has really good days, tantrums follow, which
is not entirely unusual. I’m tryna figure out these
lights, there we goo. Woo, surface of the sun. It’s not unusual, because you have, aw everything’s great,
everything’s wonderful, and then it slows down and just, y’know, back to normal and that’s a bummer, it’s a bummer for everbody. Y’know you have all that hyped excitement and then just nothing, so. It’s a pretty actually normal behavior. She’s just upset, she’s
bummed about it I think. You’d think y’know you
would reason with like, well you had such a great day, why are you throwing a tantrum? But honestly like, she had a great day and now it’s over and now she’s bummed. I think everybody feels that and she just expresses it vividly, huh? – [Isaiah] I know I do. – [Priscilla] Right. – [Asa] Isaiah you can’t talk
from the bathroom, it’s weird. – [Isaiah] I’m sorry. – [Asa] What, you had so much to eat. So much pizza and cookies
and all the best things. Abbie I can not wait to
get our family room done, we can watch movies in here. Won’t it be great? Curl up on the comfy carpet. – [Priscilla] Come on,
watch your hand, it’s food! – [Asa] Are you helping? – [Summer] Good job. – [Priscilla] I made his food. So funny thing, Maverick
does not like to eat ’til late at night. – [Summer] Come on. She doesn’t know what to do, she can’t. Here, I’ll help you. I’ll help you get down the stairs, okay? (Abbie groaning) – [Asa] I feel like we should
put a hand rail over here. – Yeah. – [Asa] ‘Cause there’s finger
prints all over it already. – There you go.
– She needs that stability. – [Summer] Hey, I’m not
gonna move from here. Come on. (Abbie yells) I’m sorry Mav I know. It’s your girl, it’s
not me, it’s your girl. Come here, come here.
– Come get his bowl. – [Asa] Oh my gosh, so much instruction. Ab, stop. (Abbie hums) Come and get the bowl. (Abbie hums) – [Priscilla] Your hands. – [Asa] Good job. – Ready to go in the laundry room. (phone bleeps) – [Isaiah] She staring at it? (Abbie vocalizes) – Put it right here. – [Asa] She’s like I remember this stuff, I like to dump it all over the floor. (laughing) – Right here.
– Set it down. – [Summer] For your puppy. (dish clatters softly)
Good job. Look now he’s eating
his dinner, you did it! High five. – [Asa] Whatcha lookin’ at? Oh the air vent? Are you just now noticing that? It creeps Summer out. – [Summer] It creeps me the heck out. – [Asa] Come on Ab. – [Isaiah] You know what I don’t like? – [Asa] Come on. Let’s go. (Abbie vocalizes) (chuckling) – [Summer] She’s been so vocal today. – [Asa] I know. (Abbie vocalizes) (laughing) – Yeah, you have. – [Asa] So we were just
talking about Summer leaving in like two days, so that’s a bummer. But we got other people
coming to the house, so that’s a huge surprise! Yay! Also, okay what do we got
going on babe tomorrow? – Tomorrow we have Abbie’s orientation, and we have a night to,
what do they call it, A Night to Shine? – [Isaiah] Night of Stars. – [Parents] Night of Stars. – [Asa] Yeah, it’s gonna be a talent show.
– That’s with the camp, yup. That’s with the camp
and it’s a talent show that Abbie’s gonna be in. – So we have to come up with a talent tomorrow morning for Abbie. Come up with something, right? – [Priscilla] No, her talent is dancing. – Right but I mean we’re gonna like, throw a little surprise in there maybe? Come on, we’re the
Maasses, it’s what we do. – Oh okay. – Yeah, we gotta do something. But yeah orientation, they what? – We gotta really, y’know. Got to give it a little razzle dazzle. – [Asa] Little pizazz, right? – Pizazz.
– Right, yeah. And then, yeah, so her
orientation’s gonna be interesting, we’ll see how she responds going back to school tomorrow, huh? (Abbie yells) I keep blocking, you keep pushing away. What’s up? No, we’re not doing cookies. I’m so glad you had such a good day. Do you wanna say bye to everybody? Say bye? (Abbie vocalizes) Say bye first, oh good job. (beeps) Next video coming up is our office tour, you don’t wanna miss that. I don’t know when I’ll post it, like in a couple o’ hours
or tomorrow or what, but just stay tuned, watch out for that. Our office is, I love it. I stinking love it. Do you love it? – I do.
– It’s the, like it’s so cool that we get to work in there. – It is. – It’s amazing. – It’s better than I could’ve imagined. – Right, it’s everything I hoped for but I had no idea it would
look as cool as it does. Do you guys love it, is it amazing? – Yeah I think it looks awesome. – [Asa] What’s your favorite part? – Maybe the podcast area. – [Asa] Yeah I was gonna say the podcast area.
– And then I sat in there and talked for like 10
minutes today, so. (laughs) – Every night I’m just gonna go in there and talk to myself. Ask myself questions. – [Asa] Pretend like maybe
you should record it, make your own podcast. – Oh man.
– Ayy. – Hey guys, probably not gonna do that. It’s scary.

  1. It is so special when you find an amazing group of people to hang out with and to be friends with. I'm so glad both Isaiah and Abbie are having so much fun.

  2. Does Abby understand sign language to the point where you could communicate well enough through signs and no speech at all? Would adding speech and sign together from you guys make a difference! I’ve always been curious on the communication side of disabilities and seeing Abby thoroughly understand what you are saying and be able to sign something back created so many questions for me!!

  3. You're so blessed.
    How sweet to show all the teenagers and young adults they're appreciated. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I know how y’all feel about all of Abby’s friends being around her. My son is 6 with moderate asd and limited communication skills…but his school does an amazing job with inclusion. He’s the most popular kid in his grade. At a birthday party for a friend all of the kids got excited that he came and one of his peer model friends really made sure that he was included and having fun like everyone else. And she totally didn’t have to do that. Even just today a little girl screamed in the store bc “ITS DAVID FROM SCHOOL MOM!!” And then her mom and I chatted about upcoming school year and such. But for me it’s so cool to see how the parents really learn a lot from the kids. A lot of times when he’s vocal stimming adults kind of give you a look. But his friends from school, their parents never give that look. She gave him a huge genuine smile and it really made my heart happy.

  5. Asa and Priscilla, you are both such special people. How important your work is and what a difference you are making to the Autism world and to Abbie's world. Big Kudo's to both of you. Hugs to both of you!

  6. idk if its me but i been crying for every video lately! lol when they chanted her name, tears! this is amazing, they are amazing, and yall are amazing!!!

  7. Do u think abbys birth control makes her hungry and crave things such as sweets ect…..some meds make people crave things and maybe thats why abby always hungry

  8. I love seeing her have those type of days I miss those type of days once school ended those days stopped now it’s much quieter but it’s great to see

  9. I've been a subscriber for awhile & the Wee family when you guy's went on vacation to California & joined there vlog & thumbs up. I noticed at the time I wrote this that 30 people did a thumbs down & thought these people are totally not with the in crowd cause all of us who love know if you don't love the Maass & Wee crowd your totaly not with the awsome people like the rest of us. We love you guys & no matter what I stop what I'm doing as soon as I can to see all the awsome things the whole family are doing & Prissilla's vlogs got me cooking like a pro. You guys are so cool & I'm "so happy" still would like to see some merch with that on it I messaged the Wee family & said the same thing & at some point I'm going to be joining the group you have to get extra vlogs im just so excited over that. For the 1st time in my life I'm with the in crowd rotfl. Huggs to all of you. I was wondering how I find your sons vlog I'm dieing to see the pics he's taking,to find it. Does Summer have 1 to? Your the next state next to me & would love you guy's to come do a greet here in North Alabama. Sorry for the big letter in your comments but had so much to say. Findly a vlog that's family friendly & keeping it real.

  10. so awesome that you have your pool now for parties like this…so sweet of you guys to do a party as a thank you…. that was so beautiful watching those lovely young people who are all so sweet with Abbie…..so heartwarming ….thank you…and love to you all

  11. You are very great parents I have a child that has autism and it is hard but you all have made be open my eyes and help me more with my daughter thank you so much keep up the great work

  12. You should’ve included her Tik tok in here for those of us who are like 28 almost & don’t belong on them sites 😂💁🏼‍♀️

  13. What's the account name for the tiktok? I use ASL to help me communicate! ♥️ Lots of love to you Mass Squad 🧩♥️

  14. It's weird to talk from the bathroom? I talk to my co workers while they are using the bathroom all the time…I've made plans with my boss on what needs done for the day while he's taking a poo and I even asked him if he fell in! Maybe it's just a Michigan thing 😂😂😂😂😂

  15. Just got into your videos and it’s quickly become one of my favorite channels actually look forward to seeing you upload 😄 plus we live in the same city so even cooler

  16. I never know how much I smile when watching until the end when my cheeks hurt or when I’m on the bus and people start looking at me weirdly!! Thankyou for brining joy into so many peoples lives.

  17. I know Summer is a close family friend; however, everytime Insee her and Isaiah together, you can feel that "someone special" chemistry. Yes I know shes ancouple years older but I could totally see them together down the road

  18. I love seeing all of the people that love abbe as much as you all do. She is truly an amazing person. And loved by so many people.

  19. I am pretty sure my son had started stimming. Is it safe to stop him in the middle of it or do I just make sure he doesn't inadvertently hurt himself? The ones that specifically worry me are spinning and swinging his head back and forth while laying on his stomach (sometimes hitting his head on the floor). I know all kids spin but he does it beyond the point of exhaustion like he can't stop.

  20. I’m so grateful for all of the summertime content, but I can’t wait for Isaiah’s senior year! Going to be emotional and exciting!

  21. So nice that everyone had a fun party. Abbie had a blast, and such a special bond for everyone. Isaiah has a whole new group of friends to support and help him also.

  22. Asa, I love the way you explain Abbie's behavior. So many dad's would just say ugh she's being bad but you explain why she is feeling the way she is. I see how connected your entire family (& Summer of course!) is to her emotions and it is very special.

  23. How awesome ! Looks like everyone had a blast. So nice of you to host this party for the young adults making a difference.

  24. I am going to unsubscribe from your videos. Almost every video makes me cry. Sometimes, it's tears of joy, sometimes, it's my empathy for the struggles your family endures and overcomes, but usually it's because you have such an amazing family and I can't deal with my emotions. Just kidding about unsubscribing. Love you guys…stop making me cry though haha

  25. I love watching all the videos you post. I just have one question I know you are busy and stuff but I sent a PM to you asking if you are getting more aprons and sumglasses. Love you guys and I have learned alot thank you again ❤❤❤❤❤

  26. 8:32 I don’t know why I laughed so much at the little interaction.
    “I know I do.”
    “Isiah, you can’t talk from the bathroom it’s weird.”
    “Sorry.”

    Edit: and let’s not forget Abbie infamously asking for food and more food!

  27. this video made me cry. it is so stinking cute. gives me so much hope for autism awareness ❤️ love you guys!
