- He is a social beast and has one brother who is not talking yet.
- He will do better in a very routine, predictable environment.
- I would have picked up the bottle by now if I were his teacher.
Of course, there are things that aren't so happy and fuzzy-warm. -Like hearing him tell me he couldn't find a friend to play with yesterday or to know he missed out on a birthday cupcake and ate his "Pamela's" chocolate chip cookie instead. He has only confessed to one "time-out" so far which means he is at the very least not telling "the whole truth".
Nathan has loved books since he was an infant. My whirlwind tornado of a boy has always wanted to sit and be read to. I am blessed! We have always made it a point to visit the library often and bring home a gaggle of books. I tried a couple of months ago to see if he would read for me, but he would jump ahead and just wasn't ready to look at the words and sound them out. Today though, I picked up a reader pamphlet he brought home from school. He was ready to sound out the words and read it to me.
Hop on Pop came out next. Yes, he still missed words and doesn't want to look at the ending consonant at times, but he was able to read the majority of lines. I feel sorry for anyone who didn't get thrilled to pieces when hearing their child read to them for the first time. I am in amazment. I assumed he would and could read, but it is still a wonderful, shocking (in a good way) event in my life.
I jumped up and down and he did too.
Life is good.
