It's been awhile, but again it's really hard to blog about the children without getting into the confidential stuff. I am going to try my best to at least blog once a week about the goings on. (I did say "TRY" so don't get upset if it doesn't happen -- I apologize in advance.)
With the help of thera-play we are making progress on Bella's potty training issues, which apparently are not potty training issues, but the need to take control over a situation. She gets mad, sad, or just plain confused she pees (and recently poops) her pants. The therapist reccomeneded asking her what she was feeling when she soils herself, so I've been trying that. Most often her response is "Cuzz I has to pee in da potty" but yesterday (during a time-out she wet herself) when asked she said "CUZZ I MAD!" Eureeka!! An answer!! An Answer!! I thanked her for being honest and reminded her that even when she is mad she needs to go on the potty. She repeated it "I go on potty" Now, if we can get through the rest of this week without any daytime incidents I will give her back her big girl undies, but keep the pullups on for nighttime (till we get through that without any accidents).
Cindy is doing really well with "school", she LOVES doing her homework. Her speech is still delayed, but we are working on her grammar and sentence structure. I have difficulty teaching her "Kaa" vs. "Taa", but we got the "Saa" instead of "Taa" (any suggestions).
Chicco KeyFit 30: it goes up to 30lbs and 30inches) . We currently have the SafetyFirst Designer22 (don't worry I did my research through Consumer Reports before buying that carrier and selecting this new one -- Check out the Comparisson.. Amazingly the Designer22 got much better ratings than the more expensive and more common Graco SnugRide).
