Take, for example, their last session, where they learned how to "pop" their sounds. "Popping" your sounds is when you use two consonants together like the "S" and "P" in spoon.
Or the "S" and "M" in smoke.
Or the "S" and "C" in school.
Get it? (Me either, but just go with me on it.)
So, the boys have been popping sounds left and right lately. And we are really starting to see a difference.
Like this morning, when I was trying to get the boys' breakfast, and Owen got all upset about something. He put his head down, and when I said, "What's wrong, buddy?" all he said was...
"Not what? Not now? You don't want breakfast right now?"
"Nooooooo, Mommy! Not!"
"I don't know what you mean."
Then Aidan chimed in.
"Not, Mommy. Owen say Not."
"Not? Nock? Nop? I don't know what you're saying."
And then Aidan took a deep breath and decided to pop.
"Sssssss-not, Mommy. Owen has ssssss-not."
And then I realized Owen didn't want breakfast yet because his face was covered in boogers. Ohhhh.
So, that's what the pop is. It's comprehension of what my boys are actually saying ssssss-macking me right in the head. So, thank you ssssss-peech therapy. Thank you for putting the S back in my boys' snot. Or whatever. Can't wait to see what else you have in ssssss-tore!
