Quick Update

April 15th, 2015 at 07:22 am

A coworker shocked me when she said we are four months into the year already. I know April = fourth month. Not surprising, to most. Seriously though, where did this year go??? It's hard to keep up with all the appointments for my littlest (his medical issue checkups) and now appointments for my oldest (speech delay). I've been on this roller coaster of medical appointments for four straight months. No wonder I'm tired. Hoping after this round, the appointments will take a break for my littlest. And hoping they can help with my oldest, but I'm not impressed by the evaluators, so I'm sceptical. I've had such good luck with doctors of my littlest, it's just weird that I'm having such bad luck with my oldest.

On the goals front:
1) In budget, so far. We've been too tired to do much, even thinking about ordering food takes too much energy. Lots of cereal and butter noodles in our house.
2) I hate soda. I lasted two full weeks, and then stress took over. It tastes awful, but it's a simple stress reliever and a little energy boost. I'm trying to cut back down (did two cans today, goal is one today) Hoping to be soda free again in a day or two. So this might be a half-win by the end of the month.
3) I'm not sure where I'm at with my weight. I think I'm maintaining, but I'm bloating with the soda. I'll jump back on the weight watchers wagon today. Tracking makes a big difference.
4) Well, despite my exhaustion, I've started a few parts of a few decluttering goals as I get a second or two. 4-1: I've started a pile of the maternity clothes. I need to go through one more drawer, and then box them up. 4-4: the floating paper pile is a LOT smaller. 4-11: hoping to get to good will/half price this weekend.

    Is your eldest seeing a speech therapist? SG has been seeing one monthly since November.

    He's in the evaluation period to see if he qualifies for help. I'm not sure what to do if they say he doesn't qualify. He (we) really need the help. It's so hard to watch him try to form words or get frustrated that he's not able to get his point across. Terrible two's with the struggle of not being able to communicate wants/needs, sucks. Really, really sucks.

    Has the therapist been helping?

    Yes I've noticed a difference. She told us to shorten our sentences when talking to her, give her less juice so she has to ask for more, give her a choice eg red cup or blue then get her to attempt to say which one. The first session was an hour and now they're roughly half an hour. She enjoys going because she gets to play.
