In the car to daycare, Z started to count. He went from one to one hundred, with me only prompting a little.
"38, 39...."
"what comes after 3"
quietly under breath "1,2,3,4"
"40, 41, 42 --- 48, 49......"
"what comes after 4"
quietly under breath "1,2,3,4,5"
"50, 51, 52 --- 58, 59" then quietly under breath "1,2,3,4,5,6", then "60, 61 ---"
He went the rest of the way on his own. and got to 100 as I was pulling into the parking lot.

Puzzle persistence

Neither of these puzzles are easy, but Zachary logical tried each piece in turn, both directions until the Matzah on the right was finished. I was impressed with the patience he displayed.

Tooth numero 2

Last Thursday, Zachary, had a loose tooth, an extremely loose tooth.  So loose that he pushed it 90 degrees and we could see the little hollow root. It fell out at school. Which makes for a first for him, out of only two. And he proudly got to give it to his teacher to look after for the day, just like Ramona in one of Beverly Cleary's stories.

It turns out it fell out during his speech therapy session, so a first for Ms. Terri too!  She wasn't traumatized, and told me this morning it had just pop out during his mouth exercises. Hitting the floor with a tinkle tinkle, and a gasp from both of them!
