Toddler Trouble #2 - Talking


Even thought my Eli is not really a toddler anymore I thought I would bring ya'll a new weekly series.... TODDLER TROUBLE! I'll probably change the name but it seems to fit what she's going through at the moment. So Toddler Trouble will be a blog post all about what's going on in my 3 year olds life; blog posts from her perspective, my thoughts, stories she tells and just life with a toddler... sounds fun, hu?!

Talking!


Yes, it's hard to admit but my daughter is already 42 months (3 1/2) and still isn't officially "talking." The only people that can understand her are me and her big sister. We asked our doctor about it before she turned three and has been going to speech therapy twice a week for an hour and even though I know she has made tremendous progress, she is still about 9 months behind. She is starting to say 5 word sentences, but again, no one can understand what she's saying. I must admit that I do not read to her everyday, but I talk to her like I do any other person. I don't talk to her like a baby. I also have been trying to not to ask her yes/no questions to see if I can get more practice for her. Don't get me wrong, she does talk A LOT! She just doesn't say her consonants.

Another thing is about her therapy... they do not allow us in the room with her?! I thought that was very odd. I would think that it would benefit us because we can see what they are working on with her so that we can reinforce it or reward her when she "practices" at home. But we don't and they really don't tell us much, just that she did good or she participated that day. When she first started going she liked it and then she would cry when we told her it was time to go and she would throw a fit. Obviously I didn't want her to go anymore, but now she really likes it and doing great. What are your thoughts on that?

Question: Can anyone relate?

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
