I'm sorry, but this just totally cracked me up. I can't stop laughing! Not only are they VERY (as in EXTREMELY
) articulate about what they NEED, they are also incredibly ahem, colorful in their delivery?
Indeed, my DS is very concerned as to whether I'm listening or not, "Mom, I need you to listen to me here. I need you to look in my eyes so that I know you hear me."
Wonder where he got that line?
Indeed, all the things I wish I'd never said are coming back to haunt me. Those *VERY* few moments when I've lost patience and the ability to speak respectfully and kindly are the very moments that are foremost in DS's mind. It makes me realize just how well he WAS listening when I assumed he wasn't. DOH!
I'm learning. I'm learning...
