Let me share a funny story from today.....
Today Sam's carer was Mrs Scotland - she's lovely and there is mutual adoration between her and Sam.... um, if sometimes just a little confusion. I was doing the dishes this morning when I overhear this conversation from the lounge as she works with Sam. 'Sumee, seigh whell'. I hear Sam say 'whell'. 'Nooh Sumee, thut's nooh whell'. 'Whell, ' the said boy pipes up, 'Nooh, shoe me yurr whell, thut's a weeell'. 'Whell,' says Sam..... 'Nooh,' says Miss Scotland. This goes on and on so I stick my head around the corner and see a confused Sam looking at his car wheels and holding a whale from his puzzle. Mrs Scotland would say, 'shoe me yurr whell,' Sam would hold up his car looking at the wheels looking confused when he got told ,'nooh'. It was hilarious. After rapturous laughter from the adults in the room, a puzzled Sam was let off the hook when I made an executive decision and called it a FISH to save his frustration.
The other photo in todays blog was taken at 5am this morning when Mrs Japan (new night watch) was busy playing with Sam. She is very sweet and lovely but seems to not quite understand that Sam is supposed to be sleeping and as cute and lovely as Mr Entertainment Package is, she's not supposed to be giving him toys and singing songs with him in the small hours. You can see that Sam has no intention of returning to sleep! As I explained the finer points of the role of 'night sleeper' as opposed to 'night player', amidst Sam singing at the top of his voice, 'Boooob ba bilber', a tired little voice pops up from the girls room, 'What IS going on Mum, why all the noise?' So it might be a bleary eyed Davy family for the day whilst Mrs Japan goes home to her comfy futon!
Mrs South Africa and Mrs UK popped in yesterday to check out Sam and today Miss Filipino is making an appearance.
With this menagerie of lilts it's going to be very funny to hear what accent Sam acquires...... I'm just relieved that there are no accents in walking as this poor boy may have had the strangest gait you'd ever have seen!
Ahhhh, laughter really is the best medicine.
Have a good day. X Shirl
