Today, James took a turn for the better. He even announced it clearly as he came out of his room at 6:30 this morning, waking his tormented sister. He really was very good, trying to entertain himself like I've never seen before as he had a turn as the most energetic human in the house.
Case in point: he asked for paper and I pointed him in the right direction. A few minutes later, he came back with writing, math, and drawing pages. I am so excited! This was all on his own initiative. I had fun talking them over with him.
|All by himself, he spelled "Caillou Book," adding a smile to show he likes it and an arrow.|
MUGS is from my other life, where it stood for "Maskmakers' User Group Symposium."
Say that one three times fast!
|We went over his math sheet together: 1 + 2 = 3; 1 + 3 = ... |
"no, no, Mommy. I crossed it out! It's really 4;" and 2 + 3 = 5
|And my favourite: "The Unicycler!"|
How he came up with this, I have no idea.
