Ralphie and the Swamp BabyI said yesterday's post 
would be short, 
and it wasn't. 
Not really.
But today
I'll keep it short. Really.

In my "word perfect" post,
 I mentioned how my older
boy knows if you've read the 
wrong words and corrects you 
(whether you're a mom on a couch 
or a minister in a pulpit).

But I'm not sure my boy reads in the usual sense at all.

The evidence seems to be mounting up that he clicks,
takes a picture of the text in his head. This would
help explain difficulties in comprehension, note
reading, any math that involves pictures (he picks
up math concepts very quickly), and a number of
other challenges.

Last night reading Ralphie and the Swamp Baby to me
and his little brother, he said "cried" instead of
"exclaimed" - but wasn't looking at the page at
all when he said it. 

So tell me,  does this seem familiar to you?
