The past couple weeks I’ve taken some time off from blogging. This is just a crazy time of year for us and I honestly just didn’t have the brain power to add blogging to my to do list.
When Mikayla was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome she was just under two months old. For the next 6-8 months, she had at least two doctor or therapy appointments every week. Two appointments every week. Minimum, sometimes it was 3 or 4. I don’t know how I survived between the doctor visits, her refusal to eat and my sleep deprivation. When she was between 8 and 10 months old, she started to outgrow a lot of the issues requiring so many doctors. Now we see most of them only once a year, a few every two years. But most of those appointments are in April. I don’t really know how it worked out this way, but it makes for a hectic few weeks.
This year, because I apparently love a busy schedule, we also scheduled several school visits for this past month. We are in the process of deciding between homeschool and traditional school for Mikayla. And, if we do put her in a traditional school, which one. So, in between the eye doctor, ear doctor, pediatrician, cardiologist, and ear doctor (again, hopefully we don’t need tubes!), we have toured four different schools to check out the preschool and kindergarten programs.
This is the last week of busyness so life should return to normal next week…or whatever “normal” means for us. I’m ready to get back to reading and writing regularly. And, I have some new, exciting experiments to share. For now, I’ll just say I might be turning into a crafty, do-it-yourself person. I’ll share more in the days to come.
In the mean time, I’m doing some research – what sort of chores do you require from your preschoolers? I’d love some ideas.
