I was on a week long business trip that Jon joined me on which was great for us. But, we always miss the kids when we leave. Hanging out and doing nothing when we get back just brings us closer together and makes the kids feel good. Yesterday we went to the pool, ate lunch and spent the entire afternoon there. We were just sitting around chatting and Heath started telling us how the caterpillar becomes a butterfly. He starts by saying that the caterpillar eats and eats and then gets into his cocoon. He hangs there and then one day becomes a butterfly.
And that is my perspective.
I’m just always amazed at how he paints the picture in his head and tells us the story at 3 years old. I’m sure he learned this story at school! So grateful for the amazing education he is receiving in ASL. It’s so easy and natural for Deaf kids. I just don’t get why people would deny Deaf children this right. It doesn’t make sense to me. He ends the conversation with his favorite counting rhythm. I’ve shared this before but it’s always so cute!
