This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.
New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.
... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).
Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.
Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.
Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

19. Courage, the scaredy-dog
... I haven't told you yet, but one of my favorite games is playing being "Courage". It's a little cartoon dog that my sister watches on TV on saturday morning. I was "hooked" because I find it very funny. He's even worse than me : he's scared all the time, and when he is he goes "beloubeloubeloubelou" very very fast. It makes laugh so much !
Therefore I often pretend to be the little dog "Courage", whom I imitate perfectly. I seize the opportunity to transgress rules about things I cannot do or say : burping, swear words, etc... then I say (pretending to be angry) "Little dog Courage, you can't burp !" (and I take advantage of the situation to burp myself !). Similarly, when daddy or mommy ask me to do something, I tell them the way the should be phrasing their sentence. It gives something along these lines : Mommy : "Lou, are you coming to take your bath ?" Me : "Little dog Courage, are you coming to take your bath ?" (then) "Now mommy !".
So mommy has to repeat her sentence while calling me little dog Courage and I reply, using the tone of voice from the cartoon : "yes". Sometimes, daddy and mommy don't want to play this game, because I reckon I do play it very very often... and for everything : I phrase the sentence the way I'd like it to be said to me ! Not always funny those adults !
