The special ed teacher who comes to my class once a week to work with two of my other babies pulled me aside after class the other day.
“You know, I was watching Pumpkin today and he seems like he’s doing much better. He’s even in line right now, with the other kids.”
She’s right. He has been learning. He has learned school routines, and he knows where he’s supposed to be at any given time, and even what he is supposed to be doing. He still interrupts me, but he is more likely to be able to answer questions, or to be on-topic in a conversation.
When we did our letter sounds today, he looked at me when I showed the M card, rubbed his tummy, grinned, and said, “MMMMM!”
