Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Just wanted to write something that Tyler said awhile back when we were still living at the old house. I overheard him say to Chase, "Why are you lying there like a little old rock?" I was confused and looked in the living room. Tyler was sitting on the couch watching tv and Chase was lying the ground. It was just a funny comment that I want to remember.

Recently, my big thing with Tyler is that I want him to give Chase a chance to do things and answer questions. Since Tyler is older, he likes to do things for Chase and if I ask them a question, he always answers and doesn't give Chase time to respond. So I recently had to have a talk with him. I told him that when I ask Chase a question, he will know it because I will say "Chase" in the question and that means that I don't want him to answer. In the beginning, he had a hard time but I see that he is trying. Also, I told him not to do everything for Chase because he needs to learn by doing things on his own. Today, they were looking in a Where's Waldo type book where they had to search for certain items in a picture. I was sitting right next to them and I could see that Tyler would find some items, but instead of pointing them out right away, he would say, "Chase, I think the elephant is in this area. Can you find it?" while directing Chase to look at one area of the picture. And after Chase found it, Tyler would say, "Good job! You found it!" Chase was seriously so happy and beaming with pride. I know that Tyler did this to give Chase a chance to find some of the items and I was so proud of him because I didn't even ask him to do it. Such a sweetie pie!
