Huge break through with dd2

For the past year i have been trying to get dd2 to explain 'what hurts' when she is poorly, i often end up asking her 'does x hurt? yes or no?' and she always says 'yes' even if it doesn't. I had almost given up.

Today we are eating dinner, dd2 is stuffing her face and then comes up to me and says 'i have tummy ache' grin, i have never been so happy over someone having tummy ache grin. I never thought she would be able to tell me 'what hurts' (thought i would have to guess for the rest of my life).

Well done dd2 grin.

Nice one Marne's DD!

Well done her. My dd always says "everything", when I ask her what hurts|

Thank you, dd1 is poorly with flu and even though she's very verbal she can't pin point what hurts or how she feels.

Aww well done, what a breakthrough.

DS2 just says "there" when I ask him, but doesn't point to anything hmm

lol, 5inthebed dd2 used to just say 'there' but not point grin.

I asked her before bed if she still had tummy ache or was it better and she said 'better now', i think she just ate too fast smile.

Glad she is feeling better.

He does occasionally let me know where it hurts, usually when he has stubbed his toe and is hysterical because he has a fear of blood coming out of his body.

So nice that you've had that breakthrough. It's so exciting when you feel you've gotten through a little chink in their armour, isn't it?

Tummy seems fine, think it was a case of too much food grin.

That's a huge huge breakthrough which will make a big difference to her and everyone around her for the rest of her life.
I rejoice for you!!!

Well done marne juniorsmile

Maybe she needs to over-eat lots of her favourite food tomorrow night just to make sure the new skill is properly reinforced? (mostly tongue in cheek comment) grin

That's great, we had a big breakthrough with DD the other day too, must be the week for it - she answered her first question, she drew a rectangle with four squares on it, I said "did you draw a house?" she said "no, no, no, a door!"

Fanjo, thats a huge break through, well done to your dd. When dd2 does something new i feel like squeezing her so tight that she pops grin (luckily she likes being squeezed).

I often squeeze DD too! grin
