Our Little Poet: My Bed is Like a Little Boat
Sleep for our little guy has been a challenge for the past month, we’ve tried a few different methods to help him quiet down and fall asleep. Tyler started reciting poems to him (I love this side of my husband, my Renaissance Man). A few days into this new attempt Tyler called me in “Michelle, listen to this” and he started the lines of the poem but left out the last few words of each line and Dylan filled it in! We’ve known he’s quite the verbal little dude, but this blew me away. It’s been a few weeks now and I’ve been trying to catch in on camera…this is the best I got. A little quiet, and a few of his own words in there that differ from the real poem, but you get the gist.
Robert Louis Stevenson:
If I learned anything, it’s that I should pay attention more to what Dylan is interested in…that he wants to do and learn so much and I can do more to encourage him to learn and grow.
And perhaps I need to research more about auditory learners?
