Declan has begun to read aloud like John Lithgow… with purpose and emphasis and drama.

It’s the best sound in the whole entire world, next to his laugh.

The other day in school he was asked to write down words that he knows.  He has read it to me several times, proud of the way that changing his emphasis can make it so different:

Version #1

Map cat in.

No, mom!

Dad mad.

Man can.

Pan.

Wow!

Glad Declan.

Version #2

Map.

Cat in.

No mom.

Dad madman.

Can. Pan.

Wow. Glad?

Declan.

You get the idea…

Someday I’ll write a real post again. For now, life, Kindergarten and work have me on the run.
