My son Kyle is 4. He loves to talk. I had a c-section and I swear the doctor said in the OR, "You can't be screaming yet, you're not born." He hasn't stopped talking since.
There is a problem with his talking. He has trouble with articulation. In other words, we have no idea what he is saying.
This wasn't so much of a problem when he was 2 or 3. He said the same 100+ words over and over again. We could guess and he wouldn't notice. But now that he is 4, he know when we are guessing or faking it.
He has been evaluated by the city schools and he has been going to speech therapy every week. He works hard at his homework and loves to practice his sounds. Has his speech improved? No, not really. I'd like to say it is all clicking into place. But it isn't. I know it takes time. I am not expecting a miracle but it is challenging. He is frustrated and so are we.
Summer is here for his speech therapy. We're on our own. We'll keep practicing and working on our "F's" and "S's." We'll add some new letters once he is ready to move on. Until then, I will do my best to pretend I know what my little boy is saying to me. Ummm. Yeah. Sure.
