"Halloween Night When I Was Born."
"Halloween night and it is birthday. Forest Halloween night. Out there was moon. Ice cold."
I asked Max who was there in the forest on the night on Halloween?
"Pumpkin King Daddy there Nonni there Halloween night when I born forest. Mother with me in her. Halloween night long time. I was sick."
|Pumpkin King made his appearance in the story last week. Daddy and Nonni were there when he was born. He was NOT born in a forest, but his Daddy likes to tell him he was, so he's been telling it like that to make Daddy laugh.|
"Pumpkin King make me live. Halloween night greatest of nights when I live, not die. Boy who live. Moon was magic. Pumpkin King make song. Make magic to mom I live."
"Halloween night boy lives."
Robby asked, Max what was the song the Pumpkin King was singing?
"Halloween night boy lives long. Joyous night when the best boy b(orne)."
"Halloween night I happy because I live."
|He certainly has heard the part of the story where we didn't know what was going on when he was born. He was sick, we just didn't know it yet.|
|I don't remember talking much about how I felt after having him, but sick as a dog is about right.|
|We're back in the forest. There really was an ice storm the night he was born. And his Daddy agreed, he was happy when he was born.|
|True...we didn't know if we were having a boy or a girl, so when Max was born Steve said "We have our Maximilian."|
THE END...for now. He might always add on to his story, but this was the most complete it's been in a month. He has been expressing a gratitude lately for his life. Last week he said it's been a great life. I just love the way he puts his thoughts into words.
