Maybe she should not be a speech therapist

I was talking to Marc about Ethan's speech therapy today. Ethan had a very good session and he was mimicking many two and three word phrases quite well. Marc was telling me that the therapist wants us to prompt him to say a two word phrase when he wants something. He used the example that if Ethan wants the "blue ball" we should make him say "blue ball" before we hand it to him or at least for him to attempt to say it.

Katie must have been listening intently in the back seat to our conversation. Here is what came next ~

Katie ~ "Ethan say blue ball."

Ethan ~ Trying to get our attention "dada"

Katie ~ Her voice rising "Ethan....I said say blue ball!"

Ethan ~ "dada"

Katie ~ Now screaming "ETHAN...YOU NOT SAY DADA!! YOU SAY BLUE BALL!!"

Ethan ~ "dada, dada, dada"

Katie ~ AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! That is Katie screaming and fake crying

Maybe teaching is not in her future; she might be better suited to being a dictator of her own country (smirk)

Don't ask me why I was reading this while I was drinking my coffee, I wound up spewing it on the monitor.
You guys have all the fun, spending a day with the dynamic duo is in my future, I promise!
Love you

ROFLMFAO!! If I were drinking anything, it would have been all over the computer!

Poor Katie Starr. It seems that Ethan has already learned how to ignore the women in his life.

I had a teacher like that once she was the "Mother Superior"
You go Queen Starr.
