I was watching our nearly one-year-old yesterday as I fed her a late lunch. She notices things, fixates then moves on. I had always thought that babies had the attention span of a gnat’s nit. This is not the case however. They can focus so much so, for instance in Abigail’s case, EVERY piece of lint on our floor is subject to inspection. I’m not talking a cursory glance I mean turned over, tasted, the works.
I also saw a headline on MSNBC that read, “How to decide if you have ADHD — the signs” and, no lie…I forgot to click on it and went to another site. So, what I’m trying to say is they’re not the ones with the focus issue…speaking of issues, did you see the latest “Everyday with Rachael Ray”? That’s an interesting spelling of her name, isn’t it? There was a spelling bee recently here at the middle school. Now, why did I come up here to the computer anyway???
