Our son has made incredible strides in therapy: signing “more”, “all done”, “open”, and “go”. He has even acquired some new words, phrases, and sounds: “bye”, “hi”,”oh man”, “achoo”, “go”, panting, fish noises, sirens. Yesterday, he pointed to his nose when his behaviorist asked him where his nose was. However, I am starting to have notions that she is putting a spell on our son.
I have tried again and again to have the lil man point to his nose, but it is of no use. It’s as if I am asking him a complex mathematical equation. I show him pictures of dogs and fish and make noises, the same noises the behaviorist does, and, again, it’s as if I am asking the impossible.
His behaviorist has asked me, “does he do this…?” “does he do that…?”. Constantly, our son makes a liar of me. He will do this for her, but not for my husband or me.
Hmmmm. I guess he knows we’ll love him no matter what, so why should he show off!
