Overwhelmed and Underblogged

Between Facebook and real life, this blog sure has suffered this Summer! LOL

Braeden's first day of Kindergarten... almost a month late! But better late than never, right?

Things are going.... well. He has one or two yellow behavior days each week which is no surprise to me. Yellow means some behavior issues but nothing extreme. Mostly he is having problems with transitions and noncompliance. Same ol same ol. His teacher is going to start documenting all behavior issues for his ABA therapist so we can see exactly what is going on.

I have a meeting on Thursday afternoon with all of his "specials" teachers. Art, music, etc. Now I just have to figure out exactly what I want to talk to them about, etc. *sigh*

SO much of my time lately is spent wondering if I am doing the right things for him. And I have a feeling that that will never go away. Questioning myself as a parent sucks.

Malachai has a doctor's appointment on Thursday morning. He has low iron and we want to get some extra blood work done to check it out. Steven has pernicious anemia so we hope this is not an early indication that Mal has it as well. When I am at the doctor's I am also requesting a referral for Malachai to the same office that evaluated Braeden. I need to know if Mal's issues are just learned behaviors or if we are looking at him having issues as well.

So. A fun filled week ahead!

What have y'all been up to? I need to make it by to visit blogs today.... catch ya later!

It's so hard being a parent with children who are "different" than other kids. I empathize and hope you're taking good care of yourself and keep reminding yourself, you're doing the best job you can.
