Pepaw (Tim’s dad) came over today to play with the J-man… oh, and to help Tim clean out the gutters. By help I mean, Pepaw held the ladder. Thank goodness!
For some reason, the J-man picks the days that Pepaw is here to learn a new and exciting skill. Today, it was how to spell his name. Yes, it’s difficult for him to say some of the letters, but Pepaw spelled it out with flash cards, and had the J-man read them over and over. Then, Pepaw would ask how to spell J-man. Little Man would say “guh-guh”-“mah-mah”-“aah-aah”-“eh-eh.” That’s right, he would spell out his name. Yes, of course he spelled out his own name and not “J-man.” Why do you ask?
Brilliant child. Of course he is.
Right now he is NOT napping, which I’m not going to fight, since last night he went to sleep at 11:15 (after napping for 2 1/2 hours yesterday). That meant I went to sleep after midnight. He seems to feel better today – yesterday was spent moaning pretty consistently through the day. Poor monkey. Hoping the peaches and prunes Tim picked up will help Little Man’s tummy feel better SOON!
And now, I have the Jello song stuck in my head. Dang it!
