    My friends have this for their 3 boys : Summit Rock Climber If that's too expensive, then maybe a rock climbing wall (either indoors or out). Does he build fort outside? Sticklets are awesome for connecting sticks and making forts.

    HA - I was trying to figure out why you were so excited about my toilet! Yeah - the doctor even cleared dad to drive (oh goodness!! Mom says it's going to be awhile, though) and that he could stop speech therapy (they're just working on short term memory). The doctor said that with the interactions dad has with people, that he feels comfortable letting him top the therapy. They go for testing in a couple weeks to see about disability. The doctor and the insurance adjuster really don't think they'll have a problem. Per the doctor, the files state "severe traumatic brain injury", which is just a step above death in their book. 😕 So, even though there is extreme progress, he doesn't expect a denial because of the diagnosis, neither does the adjuster; but they both say, when you're dealing with the government, you can never tell.

    HAHA - just one this time. But, the dork turned the water off while mom and dad were here to keep the water from running. Like, DUDE! The water has been running for at least 3 months! lol One day isn't going to make a huge difference. *face palm*

    Mom and Dad came to visit. It was so nice. Dad is even growing his beard back. It's like he's himself finally. Also, DH is fixing the toilet. This should be interesting...

    It was so crazy good. Didn't taste like fish at all.

    I'd laugh more, but I've been in that situation too many times to count!

    oh wow - DH just brought home a salmon steak that a friend caught just 11 days ago in Alaska! It is the most gorgeous orangey-pink I've ever seen. I'm not even a huge salmon fan, but I think I could like this. lol

    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.
  12. I usually rewash with vinegar or a small bit of bleach. **Sad...I had to say "usually". 🤣

    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. 😞 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. 😞 It makes me sad.
