As I have mentioned, Asher is shy. He almost always doesn't want attention or praise... it is so different from Ambrose that I have to rework my parenting constantly or there's trouble.
Here's an example Thomas wrote on his family message board Sunday night:
"We have some 'sight words' DVDs that the boys actually really like watching. The DVDs come with flash cards, and Stephanie was quizzing Ambrose. Asher and I were doing something nearby and Asher looks over and sees the card and reads, "go!" We all cheered, and he got embarrassed and ran crying in the other room."
Oh Asher. Sad but kind of funny. He laid on the couch with his face down and cried for like 10 minutes. Everyone who dared to give him attention by consoling him made it worse. He just had to get through it. Poor shy little buddy.
