This Modern World
So. There's This Book. With the Word "Amalah" On It.

With Asses Roundly Kicked

Noah just officially passed the standardized articulation test at "age-appropriate levels." He has no detectable delay or difficulty that would "inhibit his ability to learn and function in a mainstream school environment." He is "one smart little guy there, like for real, wow."

Hurrah! Congratulations to all three of you--a major hurdle jumped.

MMM

Congratulations! We always knew that little guy was perfect!

Kerry

Good job Noah!

Jessie

I have to imagine that hearing those things feels amazing. Good work, all of you!

christina

Yippee for Noah! He's gonna be the best big brother, like, ever.
Also, I know this couldn't sound more stalker-ish but I totally had a dream about you and Noah last night. Only it was like a high school play and the two of you were played by teenage boys. But it was you.
They say women have weird dreams when they are pregnant. Maybe that's why throughout the whole dream, I was just looking for a place I could sleep.
Anyway-Yay Noah!

Kate

That is AWESOME! You already knew that you were doing the right thing by getting him all the help, but now you KNOW you did the right thing.
Noah is the man!

jessica

you all must be so proud! I am and I don't even know you! Kick-ass Noah.

Nicole

I don't know the backstory- but congrats!
My four year old son got speech therapy (I'm in Montgomery County MD) a couple of years ago through the county - AND it was a wonderful experience!
He is a fantastic talker now and at the end of a year of speech therapy - his teacher who would come to our house said (joyously, because he was talking so much and so well)
"Some kids, especially boys, just don't do a lot of talking until they have something to say."

sheilah

This is so not news to those of us who love you (umm...in a non-stalkerish, friend-type sort of way...).

We all knew Noah was perfect.

Jen

All right! We all knew that anyway, but now you have the certicate to prove it!

midlife mommy

WTG, Noah! We always knew you could.

christine stephens

the other day. i nearly launched into a story about Noah I'd read from your blog--something random had reminded me of him--but then I had to stop and remind myself that this was someone from a blog I read and not a real person I know.

Weird.

Anyway, good for you. I'm rooting for you and yours.

blogversary

That is fabulous news!

Michelle

Congratulations. I always knew you had a little genius on your hands. You've done a great job.
