Right Brain Window

Well we were suppose to head over to my aunts for my Memere’s birthday last night when Wesley got home from his dad’s house, but he came home not looking so good. Running nose, bloodshot eye, saying he was sick. So I called my aunt and cancelled. I just can’t take him out when he is not feeling well.
This morning he climbed into bed with me, still not 100%. He really wants to see his Mama and Papa. He is so attached to them. I figure its because we lived with them from the time he was 5 months old till he was 14months. From what I read in Brain Rules for Baby, before 8 months children form there greats bonds. If I child cannot bond before this age it can really effect their brains. So it makes sense that he is so attached to him Mama and Papa.
We skipped soccer today and when hubby is back from dropping of my stepdaughter, I’m going to first stop by Wal-Mart with Wesley to get him some winter boots. In the last few days so much snow has fallen there is about a foot of the white stuff in my backyard. Then we are going to go to my parents for dinner. I don’t mind going there when he is not a 100% because he feels at home there, he has his own room and well just being around Mama and Papa makes him feel better.
This morning we took it easy, We watch a few lessons of Wink to Learn-Speak and Read English and Japanese, then an episode of Tweedlewinks. Then we sat down and did a lesson of Singapore Math, and a page of Touch Math. After watching some of the Tweedlewink course, I’m realizing how important right brain programing is to my son. The more together a child’s speech is the more the right and left brain are connected. Wesley is still very behind in the speech department, so this means I have been granted a longer time with the right brain window open. I plan to take full advantage of it. I’m also not forcing him to do his math on his own. We walk through each set together, and work it out together. The more we do this, the more it seems to stick. I guess this way he is able to learn with little stress. I don’t give him the answers but we work together so he can come up with the answer. All of this took us 20-25mins, now he is free to do whatever he likes till bed time where we will practice violin, do his Doman flashcards and read together. According to the Tweedlewinks course, children tend to do better if you cluster half there work in the morning then the other half in the afternoon. This allows them to learn what they need to, but still have lots of time to explore.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!
