My father is this big tough guy that has a birthday on Valentine's day. I struggle every year to find that one card that is both a Valentine and a birthday card. I usually have no options, the one I find is the one I get. Since I started making all my own cards, now I have options! The second one is a get well card for my sister. Nothing says get well like the bright colors of Girl Friday.
Monday at the class was bad, bad. J just totally lost it, and now we are leaving 45 mins into an hour long class. Isn't this supposed to be fun for him? And it's just free play basically, they can run around and do what they like. I know that he gets upset when they change activities. I think that has to do with his not being able to express himself in words. I called the pediatrician and threw down the gauntlet. We haven't been able to get in to see her in 4 months, and were still going to have to wait a month. I called and asked to speak to someone other than the front desk. I had to throw out there that I was a physician assistant, that my child was suspected to be speech delayed and that we needed to see a pediatrician to rule out medical problems and that if we couldn't have an appt by the end of the week that I wanted the records and would be changing doctors. We have an appt tomorrow. :P. Why does it always have to be like that? I'm a reasonable person, but making a child wait for an appt for 4 months who is having problems is ridiculous. J is just so frustrated at not being able to speak and has taken to having all kinds of tantrums. I'm feeling like it might be a while before I can go out in public with this child again, and that makes me feel like a little claustrophobic. I don't know what to do. I cried all the way home from the class and spent the better part of Monday talking to dh about what to do. We will see what the pediatrician says tomorrow.
An update on my sister, she is doing well. The infection is either gone or very under control with the medication. I got her meals from Home Bistro, it is was what she requested. It's hard for her to stand and cook or go to the grocery, so this way they are delivered to her door and all she has to do is heat them up. She said she has ordered them for gifts before and they were well liked. I have no affiliation with the company, I just post the link in case anyone else is in a similar position trying to find a get well gift.
Happy Wednesday, it's a beautiful sunshiny day here so I'm sure we will be outside this afternoon. PS Crayon does come out of pillow cases with Tide and Oxyclean.
