He Told Me

Previously I blogged about Zane's "go-to" sentence: "When the sun comes up, it will be light outside." I spoke to a speech pathologist friend about this. She pointed out that Zane probably liked the way the sentence sounded, and he liked the attention that he got when he said it. He is learning the power of words, she said. Fair enough.

However, I think that the best way to learn something is to change the routine up a bit after the initial aquisition. (I have no particular theory supporting my hypothesis, but that's how I roll.) So I decided to be pre-emptive.

Hey, Zane," I said to him while I was driving him with me to the store. "You know, when the sun comes up, it will be light outside." I expected him to repeat the sentence the same way he has the other eleventy-billion times.

"See? I TOLD you!" came the response from the back seat.
