I'm in Spokane. I have thought about asking to bump her up a grade but somehow assumed that they would suggest it if she could be. Her birthday was 2 days past the cut off date for kindergarten so she's the oldest in her class. She was ready for kindergarten the year before she went but they wouldn't test her because she was in speech therapy.
My 8yo daughter is in 2nd grade. Last year she was in a 1st/2nd grade combo class and her teacher was excellent. She ended up doing mostly 2nd grade work and a lot of 3rd grade work too. She was going to be in the same class with the same teacher this year but due to budget cuts everyone was switched around at the last minute. Her teacher this year seems really nice, but my daughter keeps complaining that she is only allowed to do easy work. They are not allowed to say a...

I just started the signs a few days ago and he hasn't tried any yet. I think it's helpful though because I am concentrating on saying those words more as well as signing them. I'm using the signs I remember my older one learning in therapy at that age - mother, father, food, drink, more, all done, help, hurt, stop, milk, and thank you.

He hasn't been to the pediatrician since he was 9 months old so I haven't asked about his speech. His ped is very anti-AP and pro-vax. He was fully vaxed until his 9 month visit but none since then. I finally found a good doctor but the insurance can't switch him...

By the way, I totally get it. I'm 31 with 4 kids and rather accustomed to people referring to me by such names, and labor/delivery nurses assuming I'm a teen mom.
I'm really surprised they're even bothering with finding a vaccine since they've discovered that circumcision prevents HIV so effectively.
