Words Cannot Describe

As my son’s development continues, words are stringing together into sentences, and more words are joining them. Numbers come out in sequential order, interrupted by the occasional 5 which appears to be his favorite. He will cackle with toddler glee when he inserts an erroneous 5. The evening, after lights out, is processing time, and with language, that means out loud. He sits in the dark room as his sister tries to sleep and practices words and phrases in his clear, high, loud voice. One phrase that comes out is a distillation of one we add to our mantra at the end of the evening. “Please stay in bed; it is time to go to sleep,” becomes, “Stay in bed; go to sleep!”
