Mom said, “no touching.”

We are working on following directions, and listening. It was nice again this morning so we ventured out. E ran past me after he climbed down our stairs straight to his favorite dirt pile. Not noticing a little critter moving at a much slower pace. 

“E come back.”  He heard me. He always hears me. The tone in my voice must have sounded slightly excited and my statement less like an order. He paused. Looked at me from the side. As if to say “why”

I said it again “come back, look! Come look!”. Adding more excitement to my voice. 

He trotted back to me.  This made me quite happy. And he was quite excited to see this little snail!
