Today, we had a moment of silence. No, not the sad kind. The kind that happens when children aren't talking. Juss got his first phone call--from a friend from school--and he was so amazed and frightened that he could not talk. He just held the phone and grinned.
I've never seen him like that. I was amazed.
When I asked him later he said, "I was afraid, and I didn' t know what to say."
We've started practice phone calls, to prepare for next time.
