Nervous, or jealous?

I'm struggling with a new look blogger interface so while I want to post about the fantastic day I had at Warwick Castle last week and how my Brownies are definitely signing up for an event there, I'm going to wait till I can get links working and add pictures.

In the meantime, a story from the past I was reminded of today in passing. Four years ago, my darling son was struggling with his t and k sounds and often mixed them up, so cat became tac and so on. We signed up with a marvellous speech therapist who resolved the problem - but at her first proper session, we did have to recover from a fit of the giggles.

She gave him a smiley face and a sad face on card and got him to stick them on to lolly sticks for using with various planned activities. She asked him how did he think each face was feeling? Usually a child will say happy or sad.

My son? Nervous and jealous.

No problem with his vocabulary then!
