Sudden onset of skills

These are my favorite posts. Mr Man put on his own pajamas, took off his own clothes, spontaneously got my attention by saying, "Mommy," and watered the plants. Um, not in that order. And he wandered into the bedroom and launched his favorite movie from iTunes.

So many of the things he does just happen when you're not looking, and then it's like he's been doing them for ages.

In possibly related news, he's become quite fond of Blue's Clues. He's started saying thank you for everything, and he occasionally "skidoos." I could think of worse shows. Blue's Clues overtly teaches self care skills and basic preschool concepts and even throws in some sign language.


  1. What a great week-I know what you mean...we go for months, just kind of moving along and then all of a sudden-new wonderful stuff!...and yes, I too can think of shows worse than blues clues..much worse:)

  2. That's great! My 19 year old still watches Blue's Clues. It, at least, isn't quite as grating as Barney got over the years. :-)

  3. Man, those Barney kids have the fakest of fake smiles. Stepford kids or something.

  4. Nostrum,

    Consider yourself "kicked" (like tagged) to provide "a list of five great things either about their children or themselves. It must be positive, There will be no discusion of causes, cures, treatments, etc" for Kicking Kittens, Kathleen's new blog. :-) Pretty please?

  5. How wonderful!

    Loved Blues Clues, it took us weeks to figure out what my daughter was talking about when it first came out - every night when we'd put her down in her crib, she'd shout Boos!! Coos!! at us and flash her pudgy fingers. Do they still repeat the same show for a week to reinforce the skills?
