Jack is downstairs playing on Playhouse Disney and he started a game where he needed to enter his name. He’s been able to get JEFF by himself for quite a while. He called me to help him with his name, and honestly, I didn’t want to get up and walk down, then back up the stairs for that, so I asked him what letters he already had. Of course, he had JEFF. Then he says, “Wait! I remember it! Come down here so I can show you!” Well, of course, then I HAD to go down there! Sure enough, he typed REY with no help from me! I was so proud, I got misty-eyed.
If I had sat him down with a piece of paper and made him write his name 20 times, he may have gotten it sooner, but there wouldn’t have been that since of pride for him and me that came from him just remembering the whole thing one day all by himself.
