Christian's version of storytelling...

While Josiah was in the hospital I had a couple of people help me out.  One of them was the developmental therapy company for Christian.  The owner picked him up from school for me. It was a huge blessing.

Well today I am chatting with Colleen (owner) on the phone.    She shared with me a jewel of a story about my amazing blessing Christian.

(Christian and Colleen in car on way from school to center)

Christian: I am going to tell you a story... I can tell you the one about Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, or Daniel and the lion's den.   Have you ever heard of any of those stories?

Colleen:  I have heard all of those stories but I would love for you to refresh my memory!

Christian: Oh... ok, well you pick one.

Colleen: Adam and Eve

Christian:  Ok well there was Adam and he was a man, and there was Eve and she was a woman.  God told Eve not to eat the fruit but she did anyway. God told Adam not to eat the fruit but Eve told him to and he did anyway. Then they were naked, and then there was a baby.

At this point Colleen told me she laughed hysterically all the way to the therapy center with my son.  She said it was one of the best stories she had ever heard! 

I told her maybe we need to work on sequencing events in stories a little more in therapy...


  1. I think his sequencing is phenomenal. They couldn't have kids if they weren't naked first.
