In keeping with the recent space theme...

DS put the right planet stickers in the right places, and there were no clues other than the text and the circular shaddows... which were all the same size/colour/etc...not even in solar system order or anything. The shaddows were captioned with short sentances about the planets, so I don't know exactly how he did it, but it sure seemed like reading of some sort or other.

This is the first time he's done something so starkly... academic. He's been rapidly getting more interested in following directions, which I guess opens the door to that kind of a performance, but... I was surprised.

On pressing with your finger: Yeah. I'm familliar with that kind of dilemma. It elicits my use of DS's name in a tone of voice REMARKABLY similar to my clearest memory of my father -- him saying my name in utter exasperation. The good news about that is that it makes me think of my dad, which always makes me smile. The bad news is that DS gets away with a lot.
