Jameson has certain speech issues that I worry about because I don't want him to be made fun of in kindergarten next school year. He had a 'speech teacher' in pre-school and he'll have one in elementary as well.

He has trouble with Gs and Rs and Ls and certain other letter combinations.

We were in the car on Wednesday and Bubba said something about ice cream and Jameson said, "Can we go to Dairy QUeen?" He said the QU combination perfectly! In the past, he would say it as keen. I was practically crawling over the seat to high five him! We had him repeat it about 10 times. It really was a huge moment. I also got him to say 'goat' correctly as in the past he would say, dote.

It was like all of the sudden it clicked for him and his tongue. It certainly makes mommy feel better. My baby is growing up.

    Been there, done that with my oldest. It "clicked" for him in 1st grade. You're doing the right thing with getting the speech therapy now. He'll probably be like most kids and be totally done with it by 2nd grade. Oh, and he will NOT be alone in elementary school.

    That's good to hear. Sometimes it can be hard to master these things.

    Give the big guy a high five for me as well. We have a grand daughter that had some of those issues early on, but it clicked with her as well, just prior to entering the public school system.
