Would you believe it?
Yesterday was my print class at college so SnoWhite agreed to pick Beauty up from school and when SnoWhite was pushing Beauty through the school to go home , Beauty was frantically looking around saying MUM, MUM, MUM. What a monkey, at least it means that she knows that my name is MUM, I shall have to wait patiently for her to call me MUM now.
I have to say that her understanding in conversation has taken a big leap in the last few days, when she comes to you and wants something and you say WHAT DO YOU WANT? she answers for example with DRINK, FISH, KEYBOARD etc, that to me is a major advance. Every time she progresses a little I feel a little bit more relieved for her future, compare to the 9 month old who rocked in the cot and banged her head and did not respond we are already doing amazingly well.
An unexpected day off from school today as it seems Beauty's school has an infestation of flies! There is major building work going on opposite the school and rats have been seen locally, the school is constructed in such away that there are lots of runnels under the school and the school have had problems with rats in there before.Baiting rats is fine and it works well but the only problem is when they begin to die they start to smell and decompose and there is no way of getting them out of the runnels.NICE!
As the crow( no pun intended) flies we are approximately 2 minutes from the school and we have had some nasty blue bottles today so perhaps they are from the same source.
Beauty has been quite happy with her day off, playing with her flash cards and watching Disney video trailers on the Disney site. She really likes THE WILD.
