    At an audiology test, DS3 had to select the correct word he heard on the headphones from a group of 6 pictures.

    Repetitious page after page after page.

    I saw the behavior start to disintegrate, and the tester would re-direct him. He noticed she was writing notes about his responses and folding her paper up to hide her notes, so, OF COURSE, that become the MAJOR source of interest.

    Finally, he started selecting the correct box with his head. YES, HIS HEAD. Pounding out each answer like a chicken eating feed off the ground. Big red dot center of forehead. The tester and I struggled to contain our laughter.

    Well, his hearing is excellent, but tolerance of boredom? Hmmm...not so much.

    DS2.25 has a sensational vocabulary, but what's even more entertaining are the two words he consistently doesn't say correctly:

    1. Aurora borealis = aurora boreatlas

    2. Argh matey! (Ala pirates) = argh matadey!

    Too cute! Clear articulation wasn't DD's thing so this led to many funny moments. One of my favorites is:

    DD: "I have an objuction."
    Me: "You have a what?"
    DD: "What I said."
    Me: "I don't know what you said. Conjunction? Observation? Objection?"
    DD: "I have an OBJUCTION"
    Me: "Can you explain what you mean?"
    DD: "It's not fair that I don't get to have juice with my lunch but you get to have sweet tea. So I object."
    Me: "Oh, so you have an objection. Alright. If you can say the word objection, you can have juice."
    DD: (death stare)

    corn on the bob! love it!

    i always like DS's 'peeky boo'. i was almost a little sad when it became peek-a-boo.

    whenever DS says something he didn't mean to say, (aka. if he means to say dada, but accidentally says mama), he goes 'BLEH! I mean..." and then continues on correctly. that 'bleh' is too funny.

    Where does she get the death stare from, Mana? wink
