Tonight, he called out for more water. Last night when he asked for more, he said he would need some water in the morning and that he wouldn't drink it all before he went to sleep. So tonight, he asks for more and I refill his cup and tell him not to drink too much tonight and save some for morning. And he says to me...
"But Mom, you don't want my tummy to dry out, do you?"
It made me laugh. His justification of it.
Then I started thinking of his IEP last week. And how we discussed how it can be hard to tell if he says things because he knows how to use words appropriately, or if he truly knew what those words mean. So when he said that to me it just made me so happy that he truly understood the words he was using.
And how he knew to use those words. To get his way :)
