my first time posting on the Brag thread! smile ... not sure if this is anything to brag about or not? Just realized my DS2.5 can do pattern block puzzles? I never showed him ... he got seriously attached to DS4's Leappad two weeks ago and hasn't let it go since and in those two weeks has learned how to play all the games and read the books, etc. ... and just now I overheard the UmiZoomi game telling him "congratulations! you fixed 7 toys!" ... and I look over and see him working on pattern block puzzles! lol ... I love it when they figure stuff on their own! On one hand our biggest problem is that both boys are so self-directed ... but that's just what makes them be the person they are! smile
