When Spontaneous Speech Kicks In

Only Parent Chronicles

When The Boy was first diagnosed, he had absolutely no language.  So now that he has speech, I always stop to listen to what The Boy has to say.  I never ask him to be quiet and I never tell him to stop talking.  And now as his spontaneous speeh is slowly emerging, I get a kick out of some of the things he says.  This is a recent conversation we had over dinner.  

(He's referring to the delivery man, sometimes if the bell rings -
he'll jump up and say "Chinese Rice is here!") 

How do your kids make you laugh?
