My wife tried making donuts by frying Pillsbury refrigerated Dough. Thing two, who just turned ten last month, tasted one, and said "This is Not a Donut."

Sweet!

Grats!

My mom took me to a doctor when I was three to find out if there was a problem with my speech development because I hardly talked at all.

After about 10 minutes of various tests, and I still remember the hammer to the knee, he told her there was nothing wrong with me. Then the way I hear the story, he asked me if there was a reason I don't talk very much, and I told him, "I don't have anything to say."

I remember that one of your children had an adverse reaction to a vaccine. I see now that, if I'm reading correctly and because Letterrip mentioned further improvements, that this must be the ten year old. For some reason I was thinking the child was only 10 months old.

There is a theory about eventual improvement after adverse reactions with the vaccinations that the toxins are finally working their way out of the sensitive neurological systems. My son has gotten a lot better too although I sometimes still have to chide him to focus more on his diction and enunciation because sometimes he doesn't speak clearly enough, but the cool thing is what he wants to be now when he grows up: a voice actor. He got quite a kick out of finding out that Bart Simpson was really a girl. He's also very amused by my attempts to pull off various accents, and I can manage Scottish, Irish, British, Japanese, Pakistani, and Jamaican well enough to be entertaining if not always completely accurate. He tries to imitate them, and he's getting closer and closer to being able to pull off an Irish accent, which could be fun if we ever go and visit old bonny Ireland.

I hope your son continues to improve, and I think there's a great chance he will.

Cherry can we assume you are on this site making up for lost speaking time in your youth? [Smile]

I've had the obervation made that I'm too quiet and then after I'd taken that as an invitation to open up the subsequent observation a few weeks later was made that I was a lot easier to get along with when I was quieter.

I'd be curious to know though Pete how your son is fairing as time goes by and if he has anything to say about his memories of the past few years.
