For the longest time LittleMan has been counting "1,3,4,5" skipping the 2. I finally broke down and bought him They Might Be Giants Here Come the 1,2,3's since I like their album Science is Real so much for being educational kids music that adults can rock to too. I was hoping that the DVD would help teach him to count. He can count out slowly if you point at each item, but if you just flat out ask him "how many are there?" he always skips the 2. So I got him this DVD from Amazon and it arrived today. I put it on in the car, yup our wagon has a DVD player, and the kids watched it on the way to the park.
To my fantastic surprise at the play ground he started counting the bars on the monkey bars "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8!" Now there were only 6 bars, so we still have some things to work on. But at least he didn't skip the 2 this time!
We had a very full day, starting with a trip to Great Falls park, lunch, a visit with my sister-in-law's great grandma and her friendly iguana, then a picnic at a playground with some friends. We got stuck in night construction traffic on the way back and didn't get home until 10pm. GirlFriend was asleep and had a poopy diaper! I tried my best to change it without waking her up. She was sleeping on her belly though so i had to put the diaper on backwards. lol. I'm doing my best, I really am, but sometime/most of the time things feel out of control.
