24

Some things I want to remember -

Joshua, instead of calling it a doorbell, calls it a "dingbell."

Christopher, a few days ago put his shirt on backwards.  He came to me and told me "my shirt took a wrong turn." 

I have to go grocery shopping today.  Oh joy.  Luckily I can do it while 2/3 of my kids are at school, which makes it about 150% easier.  Yeah, I know, the math doesn't add up, but it seldom does when it comes to kids.  Today is the last day of school this week, so I have to get it done today.  Oh heck.  I have to go to Sam's after school.... since I have a command performance at my mother's tomorrow.  Ew.  Who's got the vodka?  I'm going to need it!

I'm getting frustrated with the slow progress on getting Lexie evaluated for ADHD.  I got the paperwork done for the doctor the beginning of the month, but they're still waiting on insurance.  I haven't heard anything from the school.  I'll contact them on Monday.  I know, it's a bad time of year for this - lots of kids being eval'd.  And the holidays.  But I'm not good at patience.

Christopher's new IEP is coming along swimmingly though.  I should be getting the second rough draft today, and the final meeting is on the 1st.  Thank you SO much won and 'ssippi scoup for all your help and support with that.  It amazes me how much they just gave me when I said "I want."  Something I'd never done before.
Okay, time for food, and cleaning, and doing something productive.  Hopefully I'll manage a more interesting post tomorrow.

Kids are so funny, aren't they?

Glad to hear your son's IEP is getting straightened out, and hope Lexie's starts moving along. Happy Thanksgiving!

Dingbell? That is so cute! I kept telling my self that I was going to write those funny things down. I just forget to:( I think I won't forget and I do.....
I hope Lexie gets the eval soon. Having been there with my son, it can be very long. It feels like they are not doing anything. Good luck!

You're right: the math rarely matches up when it comes to kids. Like, how can just ONE toddler feel like TEN children? Or make shopping a 1000x more complicated? Or make stopping at the Starbucks without the drive-thru an absolute nightmare? hahaha

i love the things the kids say. i always think i'll never forget them and don't write them down. i'm sure i've forgotten a bunch.

good luck with lexie's eval. my oldest's teacher is really pushing for an eval, but it doesn't seem right. she doesn't believe that we've never had this come up before this year (5th grade). but it hasn't. i guess one day i need to fill out the questionnaire for them. but the whole thing doesn't sit right with me. =(
