Wipeout!

This may be my favorite-ist video in a loonnggg time! Mostly because it SO captures where we are with Michael right now. He is the master of detail, recalling everything that happens and correcting you if ever you falter on something. Never can a trip to the playground be mentioned unless you are certain you will go. Never can a toy be removed from the toy cache without Michael telling you it is missing.

Michael recalls everything with extreme precision. His attention to detail is impeccable, so much so that everything has an exact place. Every bath tub toy has a precise "home" and must be put back in the same place after each bath!

We started watching a hilarious show on ABC last week called "Wipeout". It is sort of a spin off of the shows Ninja Warrior and Most Extreme Challenge from China. Basically, it is people getting annihilated on an obstacle course and laughing at how bad they wipe out. We watched it last week with Michael and today at supper he recounted, to the very last detail, the final round which consisted of (think of this as subtitles for the video):
1. Down a giant waterslide into the water
2. Across a ramp being hit with rolling barrels
3. Climb across a waterwall
4. Jump onto a spinning obstacle and falling into the water (which was full of bubbles)
5. and jumping across to the orange dot (the finish light)

There was also fire and a tunnel spewing bubbles which he mentions. The precision was amazing!
