Hey, I like pictures :-). They make a post a lot more fun! I've got some odds and ends ones. After a busy few days I thought I would catch up with pictures.
Jedidiah was quite pleased with himself that he earned his reward for passing a long awaited milestone. Potty training. Yes, he's much older than most children who are potty trained at the tender age of 2 or 3. I've shared here before that I was quite sure we would not be among the group of parents with an apraxic child who doesn't potty train until the age of 6. Yes, six. This is a very common thing among children with apraxia. No one knows particularly why. Sensory issues? Miss wiring? Not sure. I'm happy that he beat the age six dealy, but not by much! Not to mention he still has to tackle nights. But, hey, I'm just glad he is day trained! We had a much coveted reward waiting for him when he tackled the day time potty challenge. Pet Shops. Yes, the small, cooky looking animal thingies that are a craze? Definitely not on my list of 'keepers'. But hey, desperate times, call for desperate measures :-).
He thinks the mailman gave them to him! Ha, ha! He was very excited to open up this box.
He takes them everywhere! I try to limit where he can bring them, more for fear of him losing them, and a meltdown ensuing.
While the boys were on Plymouth Rock with the new Pet Shops, I was making a list, or lists as was the case. Getting ready for our Boot Camp 2012. Things are falling into place. And lest anyone thinks this may be a bad thing, I can assure you I have a lot of FUN planned. We have a hard time staying on target when we try to do some child training. So I thought by adding some fun, good family time, and some fancy 'team' shirts, we would be on our way to a splendid Boot Camp. I am looking forward to this challenge. It won't be easy, but I think we will come out the victors, with some well behaved children, a renewed love for each other, and some fond memories to boot.
This is the pile of composted dirt we had dropped of the other day. Not as impressive as I thought it would be. It will still come in handy, we were just expecting there to be more of it! Thankfully we found a free source of composted mulch. We have plans to use the mulch pretty much all over our land. No, really. We considered renting a dump truck for the stuff. No, I'm not joking. Most certainly not after our fiasco tonight. Currently, as I write this, Jeremiah's pick up truck is stuck. Really, really stuck, right in our back yard. It's under belly is in the mud!! It's not going anywhere any time soon, especially when it's supposed to rain tomorrow. We are seeing if we can get a hold of a chain to pull it out with our van. Fun times people, fun times.
