my smart murpharellington

Okay seriously. Yesterday Murphy did the entire ABC calendar from school. Aa apple, Bb ball, Cc cat... He paused a couple of times and we made suggestions, Jj jaguar? Nope, he says, "Jj jam". Then he paused at P. Ben (I thought it was Miles, but Ben said, "That was me.") says, "Pp poop." Murphy laughs and repeats Pp poop. I sent his teacher an email apologizing if that comes out at school. Funny to us, but maybe not to others (Ben and I are perpetual second graders, potty humor gives us a case of the belly laughs).
Anyway... This morning Ben says to me, "Watch this." Then to Murphy he says, "After a while crocodile." Murphy starts a long list of things I have NEVER heard in my life, not even when I was a kid. Something about a kangaroo, something about a buffalo, "chop chop lollipop" and "bye bye butterfly"... We are totally freaking out! It's from school, that beautiful, wonderful school. They are totally getting him out of the inside of his head and letting us see so much more than we have ever seen. When I told the teacher it was all her and the other staff, she said it was Murphy working hard and growing older (typical saint: blame it on someone else-ha ha). I cannot believe the years we wasted in regular special ed with EBD students. It makes me wonder what if? So today I am walking on sunshine. And don't it feel good.
