Okay, now for my rant. My MIL came over again today to help because we are all sick, which is really nice to have available but sometimes is just really really really really too much. Today she stopped by the dollar store to buy me Lysol, because you know my house is obviously disgusting so thats why we are all sick, and picked up valentines for the kids to give at school. So I appreciate the idea, its just that we usually make our own, and I at least would have let the kids pick. Anyhow, she proceeds to sit down right this minute and do DS's "with" him. He wants to write the names and pick which one to give each classmate. He gets to do one, then she says "let me write that name better, here let me write your name better" at which point DS gives up and just lets her totally take over. The thing is DS has some SN stuff that we are trying to figure out and fine motor is a lot harder than it should be for him and he know this, so its difficult to get him to write and he needs a lot of encouragement. (I was so excited that he wanted to do it himself.) MIL shooting his attempts down like she needed to do it better was NOT HELPFUL. I wish I weren't so mean, but..stupid people need to have more internal dialoge.
