catching up…

Just some random things since I haven’t posted much lately…… is good. My new job is going well….getting in the swing of things. We just had progress reports for all the kiddos. Gatlin is doing well and Kylan is getting better. He got all A’s 1st 9 weeks, but grades are slipping somewhat. He just can not maintain focus in the classroom. We have been dealing with this since 2nd grade, and have finally decided to try ADHD medicine. It breaks my heart to put him on it, but he needs it bad. He has also failed his hearing again. We will have to see an ENT soon, but not sure what will be the outcome. He has already had 4 sets of tubes for fluid and the last set, his eardrums were so thin because of all of the sets we have had to do. Not sure they will be able to do a 5th set. Kylan is fighting us on taking medicine, not really sure what he has heard about it. He did start taking it, but thinks he is taking it for allergies. He is bringing his grades back up since he has started the medicine. He is on week 3 and his teacher seems to think it is helping. I agree. When doing homework now we spend 30 minutes with little to no frustration, where as before it would be 2-3 hours to get a 15 minute assignment done with tears. Anyway, keep us in your prayers, this is a big step for us and a scary one. Jace is in the top of his pre-K class and is very well behaved. Klaire is also in the top of her class. She is the only one, according to her teachers, who can sing and remember the songs with them. She is saying sentences like crazy at 19 mths. Just this morning, she told me…”I tore it up” and “I dropped it mommy.” She has impressed me soooo much with her speech. Of course this is coming from my last kid who wouldn’t talk till he was almost 3. Smile She has great fine motor skills as well. Potty-training however, is a completely different story. HA! I know she isn’t two yet, so no rush, but she is showing ALL the signs of being ready….but is STUBBORN!!! She is staying dry through naptime and bedtime. She tells me when she is wet or poopy. She will sit on the toilet and has even peed in it a few times. She pulls off her diaper all of the time too. UGH!!! Hopefully Spring Break right before her birthday we can get this goal accomplished. Sorry for such a long post!!!
