So Nik is now into pretending he is a tiger. No, he hasn’t heard of this one, poor thing. He crawls around on the floor, stalking Anju. Who gets a little nervous, laughs a little, and tries to get out of his way. But there’s no escaping the Nik-tiger!
This morning, he roped me into becoming [myname]-elephant. So there I was, waving my elephant trunk around, being chased by a Nik-tiger, who was growling in his tiger voice: I’m a tiger. Growl. Then Anju had to become the baby elephant. It was all very cute.
Another step forward in Nik’s pretend play. I am really encouraged by his development, lately. [Despite the lack of ABA- the vendor we use seems to have a rotating-door policy for its tutors…no consistency, few hours, last-minute cancellations. Not happy with them right now.] But his social skills classes with a different agency are going really well…he looks forward to going, he talks about his friends by name (huge!).
