Our basement, especially our t.v. room are not quite fit for living. The "repair" men had to tear out all of the dry wall and carpet. So, for the last few weeks the boys have constantly been under my feet (humm, wait, how is that different from before?!) I like to think that they will spend at least one day getting reacquainted with their toys once they can enter the playroom again!
We also found a wonderful repair man that our neighbor told us about!! He can pretty much do anything! He has been hard at work for a couple of weeks now and I am happy to report that he is putting the carpet back in the t.v. room tomorrow!! Hurray!
Myles has also started his first year of preschool which is so exciting! Because he only qualified for speech services at the Early Intervention preschool, Myles is going to a regular little preschool down the street. (The one that I did the yearbooks for, of course!! :)
This may seem great but, he doesn't quite seem to fit in at the "normal" preschool setting. My friend who runs the preschool has been very patient with us. She understands how much I want Myles to suceed here although, truly, I want what is best for Myles. So, we are kind of on a trial basis with this preschool.
The first week of school Myles' little class celebrated his birthday because they had missed it in the summer. He loved getting the extra attention but I think that he really loved the treats!
A bit of good news is that I was able to fit Myles in as a "model" student at the "special" preschool!! Ha ha!! That is kind of funny because I don't think that boxing your ears and rolling around on the carpet is quite normal!
So for now, Myles is attending two schools. I know that is sounds extreme but I don't really think that he is going to "fit in" with the students at his first preschool. He is soooo sweet and smart. He has a really silly streak that just can't seem to monitor for himself! *gasp* Isn't that like most three year olds?!
I am not too worried about his development as the "special" preschool teachers assure me that he is doing great and that he is a joy to work with. I really love hearing that! :) It seems like Myles is loving the new routines and the new friends that he is making.
Asher too is doing great at school so far. Well, umm, he did hit a teacher, get sent to the principles office, and almost expelled for three days but . . . thank goodness that they understand Asher's situation.
Hitting has become more of a frequent thing with Asher lately. We have really been trying to explain to him that there is a better way to cope with his emotions. I hope that he can learn this now or I fear that he will have a long/misunderstood road ahead of him. I love him so much, it breaks my heart to see him struggle. I guess that every mother goes through this to some extent.
Well, there you have it. My life has been full of carpooling, repairs, and cleaning (mostly lots of dust!) these days. I can't wait for our home to be put back in order so I can focus more on what really matters the most - helping my little people adjust to this world of ours!! A mother's job is never done!!
*P.S. I am excited to post some pictures of our vacation! We had a great time in Florida and Texas! It was a much needed break!*
