Remember this post?
Well, Ryan was "till" having trouble with his S blends this summer.
I wasn't going to "weat" it until he "tarted" kindergarten. I figured from everything I'd read it was a developmental thing and if he was really in jeopardy, his teacher would pick up on it and recommend him for "peech" therapy.
A week or so before "cool" "tarted," we were sitting at the dinner table.
Ryan was especially tired and grouchy.
Mark asked him,"Where'd we find you?" [a favorite question in our house]
Ryan continued to pout.
I chimed in with, "Yeah, Ryan. Did we find you in the garbage can? [shameless Sesame Street/Oscar the Grouch reference] Say 'scram!"
To our surprise and amazement, Ryan looked at us and said, "SCRAM!" with the SCR- and all!!!
We all about fell off our chairs.
Mark and I looked at each other across the table and I exclaimed, "It's a MIRACLE!"
At this point, Ryan was smiling as we continued to make a HUGE deal out of his apparent speech miracle. I continued to quiz him, having him repeat word after word to see if it was, in fact, true, and not a fluke.
After a stream of words like:
ice cream with sprinkles [one of our favorite lines without the S blends!]
we decided Ryan was cured!
Don't know how, but we'll take it :)
Our little boy is growing up...
