Emily had a band concert last night so I got home a bit later than I normally do. Once we settled in I grabbed Jude and we all sat down to watch our favorite show "Glee" as a family. We all laughed and enjoyed the music on the show and the lessons the show taught last night. During the episode my cell phone went off so I knew I had a text message. If I am holding Jude I will normally ask Emily to retrieve my cell phone from wherever I laid it down. Tonight I looked at Jude and said, "Jude go get mommy's cell phone please". He just looked at me and then looked back at the TV. Em and Mike looked at me a bit perplexed too, but I just repeated myself. Again, Jude looked at me. I said "Let's go get mommy's cell phone together okay?". So I carried him into the kitchen, placed the phone on his chest, then placed his hands over it, and walked back to sit down on the couch. When I looked down at him he had the biggest grin I have ever seen on his face.
He understood............I just know it. I had asked him to do something versus his sister and he got to do it. I think he felt accomplished.
