4 year old Buzz’s speech progress is only a little above 2 year old Abby’s. The difference being I can already have a simple conversation with Abby, where Buzz mostly repeats what we’ve already said to him with a few of his own thoughts scattered in. In any case, it’s interesting having 2 kids learn to talk in their own way at roughly the same time.
Let’s just say, you can’t get away with anything around here.
Some days back, I had my mother come by to watch the kids while I ran a few errands. When I returned, I heard that Buzz had been his usual self. “Grandma put him in time out”, Jedi informed as soon as I walked in. Good luck with that, I thought.
“He’s a handful”, my mom told me as she bolted for her coat, not really taking the time to get into specifics before fleeing for her life out the door.
Then, Sunday night, more than a week after the fact, I was putting Buzz to bed when, after saying our good nights, he reprimanded, “Don’t touch my glasses!”. But he doesn’t wear glasses and neither do I. The only ones who wears glasses are my parents.
The following morning, I called my mom. “Let me guess, when you were watching the kids last week, you had to tell Buzz to stop messing with your glasses.”
She laughed, “I did, quite a few times. How did you know?”.
No, I don’t have psychic powers. You just can’t get away with anything around here.
