Can you believe it? My son who normally will just "parrot" the last word you said actually told me what he did after he got off the school bus Friday, I have asked him everyday he's gone to school since he started when he was 2 years old, "Noah, how was your day? What did you do today in school?" and every day I received "school" as an answer. Well, knock me over with a feather when I asked him yesterday, "Noah, how was your day? What did you do today in school?" with a HUGE GRIN he replies, "Dinosaurs and Animals". Yes he did. He went to the B.Y.U. Natural Arts Exhibit and Dinosaur Museum. What a wonderful feeling that was.
Although a couple of hours later he couldn't recall what he did he could only "parrot" me but that is ok. HE did it. He did it for one day. That in itself is miracle.
Another first this year Noah is trying desperately to figure out how to make friends. It scares me because he's so passive that I am afraid someone would try and "dominate" over him. What do I mean by that? hmmm. Ok easier said I guess this way, I worry my son will be "bullied". I would come unglued. How do I protect him but yet let me explore friendships and other social activities with out being one of those freaky-over-controlling-over-barring-mothers?
I am headed into unfamiliar waters and someone stole my paddle.
