Sheldon: Helping Kids Learn To Talk

Sheldonista Bethany L. sent in this awesome story:

Hey Dave,

I just had to pass this story on to you, as it turns out your comic is directly linked to my son’s first full sentence!

Last Thursday morning as I was getting my 19 month old son ready for the day, he said, clear as a bell, “I see a duck!” For the life of me I couldn’t figure out where he saw this duck, since we were staying in a small, open-air rustic cabin at a camp on Catalina at the time. We hadn’t seen any ducks for days, although we had seen several deer, a couple woodpeckers, a fox, and a few fish. So I asked him, “where do you see the duck? I don’t see a duck.” And he replied “shirt, Mama!” I looked down, and sure enough, I was wearing my “Lucky Duck” t-shirt, and there was Arthur. I then proceeded to educate him that this was no ordinary duck, but Arthur, and he now can identify Arthur, Sheldon, and Flaco. Still working on the other characters…but hopefully by the time he’s 2 we’ll have another Sheldon fan!

That has me beaming, Bethany! Thank you for sending that story in!
