Perhaps he's starting to get it.

"The animals can not watch Dragon Tales."

Ryan was calm when he informed me of this. It was a statement of fact - there was not a hint of sadness or regret in his voice.

Perhaps he's starting to get it.

His search for lost toys continues, though his moments of lost-toy-induced panic seem to have become an emotional placeholder for any moment of stress, frustration, or disappointment. It's like a (very very long) shorthand for "I'm upset." The panics seem to be becoming less about the hope of ever retrieving the toys and more about expressing an emotional state.

Perhaps he's starting to get it.

And in a major first, last night he stopped me from reading him a bedtime story and insisted that Daddy take over.

We are turning a corner.
