The Educational Observation


We’re finally getting the IEP process underway.  This week, we’re in the middle of tests and evaluations from multiple different school personnel.  The diagnostician (I’m still unclear why we’re meeting her?) the speech/language pathologist, the psychologist, the school social worker – all of them.  It’s a fun, exciting time in our lives.  (is the sarcasm thick enough?)


Homeschool Math Struggles


Disclaimer: if this posts sound like bragging, then I invite you to dust off your high school textbooks and look up abstract and negative numbers along with me.  Have fun! 


My brain hurts.  I am OVER this homeschool teaching thing at the moment.  No one ever warns you that hey!  You might end up with a kid who loves advanced math! 


Overexcitabilities & The Dentist


I am far more familiar with my kid’s dentist than I care to be.  Between the Engineer’s “shark teeth,” the Princess’ abscessed teeth that had to be pulled, and the crooked teeth issues, we spend a lot of time at the dentist.  It never gets easier.

Plenty of people hate going to the dentist.  Lots of adults can’t stand it, and kids often think the dentist is torture.  Mine do, at least.  I’ve seen kids at the dentist who cheerfully sit down and say “ahhh!” without freaking out, but we’ve never experienced that.  Yay overexcitabilities.
