....so as I was saying over in the hen house, my children speak very literally. I love it but it can be frustrating for them....and everyone else !
They both attended a specialist tutor for dyslexia. Darling daughter did very well but Wee Man resented it - felt " babied " However he loved playing the word games.
One time the tutor was trying to get him to find words by giving him clues.... the word in this case being Library. She said, " Where are the books kept in your school ?" ... He answered, " In the classroom "... " Oh yes, but the books that aren't in your classroom - where are they kept ?" ... He said, " On a shelf "
Can't argue with that. I snorted with laughter and the tutor didn't.
