If you’ve been a reader for a while, you’ll know that our 3-year-old, Ronan, is speech delayed. He’s making great strides, though, and is improving almost daily. Just this week, Leo ran into the kitchen to tell me that Ronan had just said a sentence that we’d never heard him use before.
Leo: “Mom! Ronan just said something new!”
Me: “Great! What did he say?”
Leo: “He said ‘Ouch-that hurt my balls!'”
Me: “Oh…what happened? Do you know why he said that?”
Leo: “Well, yeah- ’cause that’s where I kicked him…but it helped him say new stuff so I don’t get in trouble, right?”
