So if your child with a speech delay can properly sass you at the ripe age of 2 years and 3 months, can you still consider them speech delayed? This morning I explained to Peanut that the crayon is for paper, not for his ear (which is a post for another day). He turned and looked at me, with the crayon sticking out of his ear, and said "Oh yeah?!" I held in my laughter so as not to encourage his sassing and said "Yeah, the crayon is for paper and coloring books. Please take it out of your ear now". So he removed it from his ear and resumed coloring. Since then I have been privy to 3 more "Oh yeah?!" sasses and a "no think so" sass. I love how much he is talking, but I think we are in for it with each word he learns!
