How His Brain Works

I just had such an interesting conversation with Jakey. Very typical him ...
He was telling me about where he'd put a bunch of things on his bed. He knows his right from his left very well. But, as he was describing things he was saying left while holding up his right hand and vice versa. I let it go a few times, but then corrected him. He gave me a puzzled look and then explained, "But, mom, my bed faces this way..." Oh, Duh.

My problem was that we were standing in the kithcen and he was telling me the directions based on where we were in the house ... not as if we were standing, looking at his bed!!! Oh, my goodness.

And I'm supposed to be teaching him??
