annie ~ That's what I've heard from everyone (like maybe 3 or 4 people so you know it's definitive
) that I know who has had their child in speech therapy. It doesn't really make much difference. I have heard from other parents, unschoolers, who say their child was or would have been referred to speech therapy but they weren't interested and the child was fine with time and maturity. So, the big question is whether or not it's really necessary. I can see how school people would think it's necessary because they need kids to generally be on the same level in order to follow the curricula but that doesn't mean that the individual child needs it. KWIM?
I agree with Carrie about school and I'm very anti-school.
If your children like it and are doing well and the rest of the family is happy with it, don't feel bad. Maybe just always keep it as a choice (mostly to make yourself feel better because then you aren't forcing them). Even hardcore radical unschoolers say it's ok for kids to go to school if they choose to and know they have the choice to stop whenever they want.
We've never had a problem with liquor going bad but that's mainly because we don't drink it much. When we have it, it goes fast.
I don't think liquor does go bad, though. It's a natural disinfectant, right?
Yes, it's this weekend. Only two more days!
I'm so excited!
I keep flip-flopping back and forth between starting to pack today and waiting. I don't like to pack too early. I usually start the day before leaving and finish up with last minute toiletries and what-not the day of. But I have a diaper meet and swap to go to tomorrow morning, Ethan has a baseball game in the evening and Sean won't be home until after 9 pm because he has to go to a town hall meeting. I feel like I should start today so I'm not rushing around tomorrow and Friday morning and Sean doesn't have to stay up half the night Thursday but every time I try to start I get confused about what to pack and what not to. Aaargh! I'm such an idiot about that sort of thing.
Dylan fell asleep in his high chair while eating lunch today. I successfully cleaned up his pizza face and transferred him to the bed without waking him. I didn't get to nurse him, though, and now my breasts are feeling funky. I just got that let down feeling and it kind of hurt. Carrie, are you bringing your pump?
