Same here. I have to leave the house typically a minimum of 2x per day. Older kids have to get to school. Sometimes Jasper cries. Luckily, he is getting way better about the car.
Ash, I neglected to mention earlier that I'm sorry you are worrying about Bettie. I hope you get some answers, and that those answers are that everything is within the normal range! Also, my dd1 did everything late. She had horrible muscle tone. She still does. She is still the slowest in her class and is the opposite of athletic. But she does okay. She has plenty of friends and has plenty of other talents. We've even managed to find a "sport" (rock climbing) where she can go at her own pace and not feel like she is the slowest or worst in the group. Oh, and she is thin as a rail. She has always been very, very thin. She looks like skin and bones. I took her to the dr several times when she was younger, and they always said she was within normal range. Just barely (lol) but in there all the same. I think the difference in the weight thing between her and Bettie is that dd1 was always super tall. It made her weigh more. So even though she was skinny, she seemed bigger because of her height. (Dad is 6'5). If her dad would have been shorter, there probably would have been more concern over her weight.
Thank you for sharing that. Bettie is proportional height/weight wise- small on both accounts, between 10-15 percentile. We are not small people- I myself am 5'8" with DH is the shortest of his family at 5'10". I guess Im less concerned about her size and more concerned about her lack of muscle tone. I am quickly getting a complex about her size though just from the constant badgering Im getting from strangers. I wonder how often people actually think before they open their mouths!
Her doc should be calling back today. He was considering whether the best option is for him to evaluate her or for her to be referred to OT.
