Its been a busy place around here……

Gary is doing excellent in school. He seems to be doing better with potty training. The teacher has said he is going at school. But he won’t go to the bathroom on his own. I think its SPD. It does go along with Autism in some ways and no matter what people think of the situation. I feel that its partly me. I feel like I am missing something, even though I am doing everything they say in books and I am going with some suggestions that the teacher has given me. He is doing better but there are still things that we need to work on. I am trying not to take things personally. :( It is hard though sometimes.

Alicia is doing good. Learning all of her letters and numbers to 10, but can count higher. She is definitely average. She plays independently most of the time, but really likes me to engage in what she is doing. Its her birthday coming up and I am excited to give her a play kitchen! :) Its going to be cool to have that in the living room. She can pretend to cook in her kitchen, while I am cooking in mine. ;) hopefully she will like it. Looking forward to my trip to see my sister in June.

New things

Gary is starting to spell out words on the refrigerator more now. A few weeks ago he spelled out “hundred” and he is starting to “write” with the game on the computer. He still doesn’t like writing with a pencil or crayon, but he does for a short time. His behavior is improving at home. And I look forward to spending time with him when he gets home from school. I hope the school finds the right Kindergarten class for him. I worry about him being in an “average” classroom and having the kids treating him badly. We’ll see.

I am going to try this again.

Gary has been doing good in school this year. He is now at a school that is experienced in Autism. Which really helps when it comes to his school work, and how he acts at home. Alicia is enjoying her time with me in the morning and Gary gets time alone with me in the afternoon. It has worked out good. I am learning something new everyday, from my kids. And am loving this life that I have.
