highlights

There's not been too much excitement this week, but here are a few highlights of our life as it is:

  • There were two darling children at the kitchen table the other afternoon, adorned in the finest their closets offer, having a tea-party (water for tea, wheat-thins for cookies). When I added dinosaur chicken nuggets and just made it an easy dinner, they were happier than ever! That little girl will do almost anything her brother suggests, and he told me he knew girls like tea parties. What sweetness!
  • My husband finally reaches my mature age of 31 this week. We were discussing how life is a bit like a roller coaster; full of peaks and valleys, and the longer you ride, the faster it goes! Watch out, life!
  • I've filled out and turned in Miss C's paperwork for her 2 year old evaluation of her Brachial Plexus Injury (you can read more here and here) from birth; it was suggested we have her evaluated each year until she turns five, due to changes in growth. (I can see her compensating for some weakness, but then again, I'm her mother and I look for those things.)
  • We have found a new product that we want to try with Little B. It's a nutritional supplement and there have been incredible reports in how it helps children with sensory processing disorder among other things (like autism!). We're waiting for school to end before trying it so there aren't too many changes at once. Our therapist even highly recommended it and currently has a client who uses it. Perhaps I will blog on it after we see how it works.

And now I should really get off the computer and take care of some housework. . .

You have me so very curious about the supplement for SPD. I would love to hear more if you get a chance!!

My girl is thirteen and still loves tea parties. And she will remember them a heck of a lot more than she will a clean house, so I'm with Carbon -- forget the housework -- dirt you will have always, but the babies just for a little while...
