Speak Slowly

Zane's language skills are improving every day. He is easier to understand these days, and most times we only have to ask him to repeat himself once if we don't understand. We may have gone overboard in some of our efforts to understand him, however.

"Zane, do you want to go with Daddy to the store?" Larry asked this morning. Zane mumbled something. He was busy putting a puzzle together.

"I couldn't hear you, son," my husband IS a little hard of hearing, but we both sometimes say that when we don't understand what Zane said in the first place. Call it a delaying tactic, but we felt that asking Zane to repeat what he said would help with his speech.

Today, Zane turned around and looked directly at his father.

"Nnnnnnnn-oooooooooo," He spoke very slowly and enunciated very clearly, just so Larry could understand.

My sudden fit of laughter was cleverly disguised as coughing.
