...meaning everything becomes a learning experience.
He can't just play with his truck. Oh no....
He has to ask for his YELLOW truck. And when it honks the horn, he needs to know that Beep Beep Beep starts with the letter "B".
At dinner, he cannot just eat his green beans...nope...he has to say "Please", and ask for his beans...then tell us the beans are "GREEN"..."that's the letter 'G' "...and he has to know how many he has..."let's count, Ethan"..."look, you have 1, 2, 3 beans"..."count your beans, Ethan"..."good"...now say "Thank You".
Counting green beans was easy. He did get a little upset with me the other day about his macaroni and cheese. We argued over the color - he says it's not really yellow, it's a yucky orange...and it took awhile, but he finally got everything counted. (Who knew the bowl could hold 157 pieces of macaroni??)
Poor guy - I suppose we should leave some things for him to learn when he starts real school.
