Tick Tock - Where Does the Time Go
I know, I know, I really need to stop taking these long breaks between posts. I have no excuses and take full responsibility for keeping you all in the dark; I realize my life is “that interesting”.
Quickly bring you up to date since my last post:
Elizabeth my oldest turned 7.
Amanda turned 3 (no more at home therapy services).
Me, I turned 36.
James feels left out and wants his b-day in April.
Alistair is 4 months and can only fit into 12 month clothing. He weighed in at 20 plus pounds. He can wear the same size diapers as Amanda now. BUY IN BULK$$$
Robin is done with her prerequisites and will be starting her PA (Physician Assistant) program in August.
Ladies and Gents and everyone in between, yesterday was a monumental day for us. Amanda attended her first day of school. I have pictures and video to prove it although I’m not sure when they’ll be posted. My wife Robin and I brought her because we had to meet with all her new therapists and teachers who were attempting to know everything about Amanda in one day that took us three years. To my surprise they did a great job. My wife and I weren’t quite sure who this day would be more difficult on, us or Amanda. It was clear the minute we stepped foot into the classroom; my wife and I were in for a tough day, our little girl was growing up. Amanda didn’t even turn back to look at us, you could tell that she was ready to learn and play. It was all smiles and giggles for Amanda. Her room is huge and is equipped with every toy and learning tool imaginable, but most importantly, the room is filled with love (ok, that’s a little corny, but true). There are seven kids in the classroom and 3-4 therapist/teachers/aids. Every kid gets the attention they need. Amanda wasn’t use to so much space to roam around in and took advantage of what was before her. She played, walked and climbed from 9am – 2:15pm all while having a huge smile that never left her face.
That’s all I have time for. I hope to be back soon.
I have been reading all the comments that have been left for me even though I haven't posted. I'm sorry.
