Making a connection

This morning during ESY we working on cursive writing
Tyler: “this is just like Walgreens”  I nodded and kept going on with the instructions. Yesterday he said the same thing when we were working on the cursive. I just nodded.
Then as he was practicing on his A’s he said it again,

Tyler: “just like Walgreens” –  this time instead of nodding, I said, Tyler – like Walgreens?
Tyler: “yes, just like the Walgreens sign”

Then the lightbulb went off – Walgreens is in cursive LOL and I said, yes your right – you are learning cursive like the Walgreens sign. For Tyler there is always a connection to something – always. For mom, sometimes it takes a little bit to figure it out LOL.

Sensory chair

Tyler’s butterfly style chair finally ripped after 5 years. Replaced it with a Big Joe chair (bean bag lounge chair). I chose the outdoor one (the material will be easier to clean – this style is found at pool store). If he continues to like it, I will look into getting the extra large ones as he grows.

Conversation Speech

I was SO proud of Tyler yesterday. Tyler is on a 3 month hiatus from speech therapy (part of TCH’s new structure, 3 months on, 3 months off) but was sent home with various “homework” to continue working on speech therapy during this 3 month period. We are working on “conversation speech”

Tyler is pretty good about good about greeting appropriately and maybe asking how you are or how was your day.

The last couple of times we’ve been out to Stan & Kay’s, Stan has been at work and we haven’t been out there since Spring Break. Yesterday he was home <3. Tyler tells Paw Paw Stan hello and then…….. (out of the blue – Tyler starts the conversation!!!!!!!!)

Tyler: “How is your work?” Stan: “It’s been good.”

Then later on in the day Tyler says “I missed you Paw Paw Stan because you were at work” and Stan said “I missed you too.”

Then as we are driving off, Tyler turns to me and says “I missed Paw Paw Stan when he’s at work” and I responded, “I understand Tyler, I miss him too when he’s at work”

My heart is so full of joy – it’s the little things.
