So I've started putting Henry in this mother's morning out program, two days a week while I do my student teaching. Yesterday I asked him, "Do you have any friends at school?" and he said, "Arr-say mama!" Naturally, I was like, "Arr-say?" And he said, "NO. Arrrrrrr-say mama." And then it was like this:
Me: Arrrrrr-say? Ashley?
H: No! Arr-say mama!
Me: Oh! Orson?
H: NOOOO! ARRRRRR-SAY MAMA!
And then he gave up (whatever mom!)
So today when I picked him up, he was playing in the gym with the other kids. He ran up and gave me a huge hug and said, "Arr-say, mama!" and ran over to this little boy on a tricycle. He pointed at the kid's face and said, "Mama! Arr-say!" I asked his teacher what the boy's name was and she said, "That's R.J." and I about melted. Henry has apparently made his first friend and likes him enough to remember his name.
Henry and Arr-say. Awwwww.
