Upside down and backwards

We have had a dilemma over the past couple months with Cohen writing his name upside down and backwards. He would prefer to read what the teacher and I write upside down. The daycare told us to wait for a while before we really become concerned, so we did...Until today.

Cohen was looking at Bob's Toyota hat. I asked him if he could tell me what it said and he just shrugged it off. A little while later when he thought we weren't paying attention, he read it...however, it was upside down and backwards. So, I googled it. Can you believe there were 4.5 MILLION results for this?????? Anything from dyslexia and dysgraphia to dyscalculic. Haven't heard of all of those, but I started reading a couple of the blogs. People were doctors, CEOs, all kinds of intelligent...and they could all read upside down and backwards. Some could write in mirror images, however, most of them could not do math in the same fashion.

So, of course, I had to try it. You know mom and I both read better upside down & backwards than normal!!!!!!!!! In some situations, it's a hereditary condition linked to ADHD and such. So, now I'm going to start on Monday contacting the local district to see what we need to do to get him ready for school.

Interesting finding: Leonardo daVinci used to write in his journals backwards!
