MY CLEVER SPECIAL BOY
I've been teaching Léon to dance for the last fortnight by playing the same cd every night as I cook and dancing around the kitchen. Last night he finally understood and when I stuck on 'Kodachrome' by Paul Simon he started bouncing on his bum and waving his chubby hands in the air in time to the music. This alone had me well-impressed but later that evening he stunned me. Charlotte walked in wearing headphones, listening to her ipod. Once, on the 30 of May, Charlotte stuck the headphones on Léon for approximately 10 seconds and he looked puzzled but yesterday as soon as he saw her wearing them he stuck up his little hands dancing and swaying and pointing at the headphones - so even a month on he remembers they too produce music, even when he can't hear it for himself! That's my clever sweetie pie.
