Happy, happy, joy, joy

Just a tidbit. Cowboy took Curt to speech today. He called afterwards to tell me about it. (Anyone who knows Cowboy or the millions of men like him know this is a B I G D E A L.) Usually, I will get a "It was fine" if I press hard enough. The Great Communicator he is not.

I really like Curt's SLP. She is patient and kind -- he went with her willingly the first official visit. This says alot. Plus, her name is Gina. Even though it is spelled differently, she surely can't be all bad! The fact that her last name is only one letter away from being exactly mine -- and not a common one at that -- is just plain weird.

Ahem. Moving on...

Curt not only counted to 10 for her, but spelled his name ALOUD whilst writing it with his finger! (Curt is not a big fan of the pencil just yet).

Now, get this. She told Cowboy, "Curt is really more advanced in some areas than other children his age." (Say what?!?) When Cowboy agreed, but then said, "But he still far behind verbally," she replied, "Yes, but not that far behind. He's catching up pretty quickly."

Imagine Mama (that's me) doing her Snoopy dance through the day. Let my boss be a crazed, micro-managing woman about the upcoming event. I can handle ANYTHING with this news!

Happy, happy, joy, joy!

Wait til he gets older, and your looking back at this time with that "WHAT THE F*** DO DOCTORS KNOW?!?!?" feeling.

That's great news! He sounds like a super smart kiddo! Days like this make the hard stuff worth it, eh?!

(We need to start a late talking mommy club. We can all wear the same jeans and make a major motion picture out of it.)
