Was I alone in thinking that Jennifer Hudson's bra should have been one of the contenders in the Best Actor in a Supporting role category? I didn't think so. End of Oscar summary.
We celebrated our anniversary today with Chinese Food from our favorite restaurant (since we keep Kosher, the only Chinese restaurant in the area that we can eat meat from). This is Queens, NYC - can somebody please offer up a little competition? End of Kosher food rant.
But we were also celebrating something else - Julian read ten words from the board today! His reading skills are emerging and my heart just swells at the world opening for him. I spoke to his teacher earlier and then got off the phone and promptly called Scissors who was just as over the moon. Julian has learning difficulties with no diagnosis. Actually, he was diagnosed with global developmental delay as a tot, a little sensory integration thrown in with a smattering of auditory processing issues and there you have our perfect little puzzle - Julian. I sat with him last night reading something that was a little difficult for him, but he was scanning all over and picking out those sight words expertly. I felt tears forming as they're forming now.
It's amazing looking through the world of each of your children. Somehow Tali's world has always been a bit more straightforward as she has easily narrated the goings on from early on. Entrance to Julian's world sometimes requires a bit more of a roundabout journey, but I must say, always worth the diversions.
Julian's fortune from his cookie tonight was, "Some pursue happiness; you create it." End of kvelling over your children segment.
