    4 year old can't remember letter names. Normal?

    Just popping in to add - I know your doctor is concerned about articulation. But, when you talk to the SLP, I would request a test like the CELF-5 or CASL or something similar - anything that can check language.

    4 year old can't remember letter names. Normal?

    My daughter still struggles at 6.5. She has auditory processing disorder and mixed expressive-receptive language disorder, so names and things are difficult for her. The letter names are hard for her and for a long time, even number identification as hard (and she's really good with math). (The retention issue is what made us get pursue testing - after 2 years in preschool, she only knew A and X.) AAR did not work for us - in fact, it was downright painful. Explode the Code's "pre" books (Get Ready/Get Set/Go for the Code) have been a life saver. She still struggles with retaining the sounds, but we're much further than we were last year at this time. If AAR isn't working well, the EtC books are only $6.95 on Rainbow Resource. So, not even $21 for all 3. If your ped is suggesting a speech eval, it can't hurt.
  3. I usually rewash with vinegar or a small bit of bleach. **Sad...I had to say "usually". ๐Ÿคฃ

    Do you own/use an electric can opener?

    I have one, but I also have a regular one as well. A lot of my cans have the pop-top tabs, too. So, I don't have to use either.

    I'm annoyed. I bought cute shoes yesterday to wear with my new shirt. I wore them to church, then Sam's Club. We were going to take the kid to Wonders of Wildlife since we haven't been in a few months, but the shoes gave me awful blisters. ๐Ÿ˜ž I had even planned ahead and brought tennis shoes to wear since it takes at least 3 hours to walk throug WoW, but I couldn't even cut it with the tennis shoes. So, DH said we had to come home. #losermomaward #blisterssuck #Ijustwantedcuteshoes

    I had to look up babka. It looks similar to povitica, in which case I say chocolate babka for breakfast is perfectly permissible on a Saturday! Also, I love strawberry rhubarb! I can never find rhubarb in this area. ๐Ÿ˜ž It makes me sad.

    Hey lovely friend ๐Ÿ’• Just popping in to say that Dad's surgery to replace his bone flap was last Friday. He did spectacularly and was home by Sunday!! The doctors were amazed at how quickly he recovered from the surgery. YAY!! Hopefully soon, my days will slow down a little bit and I can chat more than I have been lately.

    Moved On, Have you read the book Healing Without Hurting? We're following a lot of her suggestions for my daughter's ADHD, but her story started because of her son's autism. I know she had a lot of success with her son and with others. Also, have you looked into the Nemecheck Protocol? I ran across this with one of the parents in this group, but have seen it a lot in my FB groups as well.

    MAN!! Now, I want chocolate milk! HAHA I just told her - God let them become extinct, so that probably means He just wanted them in Heaven with him. Besides, if you had the only pegacorn on the earth, everyone would want to come and study it. They'd be in our way and we wouldn't have any fun. She replies, "I'd just tell them to get their own! They can study mine when it dies one day." lol

    Also, last night I dreamed SWB was my teacher/boss. Professor maybe? The context was weird. But, she heard it was my birthday and slipped me $10. lol "I don't want you upset about this. I know it's unconventional and some people get mad, but here's a little birthday treat." ๐Ÿ˜„

    Good morning, all. I was trying to sleep a bit this morning (after my teaching was done) and the kid walked in wailing. "What's wrong?" "WHY?! Why didn't Jesus answer my prayers?!" "Umm...what did you pray for?" "A chocolate milk pegacorn. That's ALL I wanted and asked for! I don't understand!" ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ It's too early for discussions on why God didn't provide her with a flying unicorn.

    Good morning ๐Ÿ™‚ I've been up since 3:45 to teach. I'm tired. Might need another pot of coffee today.

    Y'all - my sister is a massage therapist. She just did a couples massage for a 9 year old and 5 year old so they could relax before school. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ต I mean, I love me a good massage, but I didn't get one until I could pay for it with my own money! lol *mind blown*
