Little Prince had an appointment with his occupational therapist today. He did good. He did display some temper when she wouldn’t just do things the way that he wanted him too. And then he would come over to me and climb in my lap, like he was thinking, “Mommy, I don’t like her anymore. Can you make her listen to me?” It was really cute. We were in a smaller room today. He was NOT happy to not go into the room he is used to. But this room actually worked out a little better because there was less distractions. We plan to use this room more often and I really thing that is a good idea.
I took him shopping afterwards (just to pick up milk). He loves it so much I really think it is his favorite part of therapy days.
Sidenote #1: It is Friday today and I am glad. I am SO SO SO tired and could use a day where my sole concerns are catching up on laundry and other housework.
Sidenote #2: My diet is going well. I really thing that the changes I made have helped and I am no longer feeling hungry all the time. And this morning my pants were looser so my Christmas bloat is going away too!!
I met with a new therapist for Little Prince today. I know she is for early intervention, and I know that she will coordinate with his other therapists. But other than that I really have no idea what her goals will be. I take all the help I can get for my little man. He will age out of this particular therapy when he is five so I figure I will use it as long as I can.

In the spirit of making homeschooling fun like was one of my goals for this year, we did school on the computer today. I had found some great sites to do fun things that fit right in with where we are in our homeschooling. I even found some sites to work with Princess Belle. She had great fun! I gave her the homework of finding some subjects that she is interested in so that we can do research and do some unit studies to break up the book work. For this year I am looking to do bookwork but to also do fun learning activities too. I want school to be fun and the girls were VERY enthusiastic. It was a GREAT day.
The little girls did some songs when we started and one of their favorites was The Lion Hunt song. So after we were done our work, we made some binoculars. The girls LOVED that and asked if they could make explorer hats next time.
On a sidenote: I am really struggling with my diet! I am hungry all the time!!!! I don’t know what is wrong with me, but this SUCKS!!!! And for all these hunger pains!! I am not losing weight! I mean I am not gaining weight, but I am not losing either.
I am so happy!!! I have a desktop computer again!!! I can blog while properly typing!!! I can change my blog if I want to!! I can update pictures of my babies! I can update my budget! I am THRILLED!!! I have a little computer cart in the classroom area so that I can use it when I am homeschooling if I want to! And there is a door beside me so that I can open it to get some fresh air! This is a GOOD DAY!
On a sidenote, I have been using my new VERY sharp knives lately and yesterday I cut my finger pretty bad, so trying to type while wearing my bandage is a little difficult but it is still better than using my phone or my tablet!!
As a result of this wonderful new development, my posts will get back to being a little longer and more fun. It is just so much easier to post from my computer. *happy dance!* and *joyful singing!*
I got some meal replacement drinks for Little Prince. I want to give them to him on days that he doesn’t eat well. He never eats well on days that he has therapy. So I gave him a drink last night before bed. And miracle of miracles . . . he slept really well! I!am thrilled. To reward him, I took him shopping with me today. He was so good! And holding his hand as we walked from the van to the store was so completely sweet. He had a lot of fun and made getting a few groceries was fun with him along.
Princess Belle and the little girls had a tea party while the was gone and Princess Magpie had so much fun she set one up this afternoon. I love watching the girls together, enjoying each other.
Little Prince had physical therapy today. He did so well. He worked hard, participated and had fun. I laughed at his antics and was thrilled when he didn’t cry as we left. There was a little adventure involving my keys being locked in the van, but all in all it was a good day.
I picked up some books for the kids at the local thrift shop and the kids were thrilled. It was so cute to see them excitedly picking through the books and then all curling up with their favorite ones.
