I still see things that I saw in my son at around 5 or 6, so good luck! Not only do you have to get used to HIM.....he's got to get used to YOU! Mine learned to think that I was crazy and will NOT repeat, repeat, and repeat myself. Of course, he still can't make tuna salad, but he has a wonderful personality!
I'm from the land of "figure it out or starve".
