Hello, this weekend is nice in favor of me, as this moment i am reading this wonderful informative piece of writing here at my home.

Love, LOVE your writing, as usual!

I still have to put on my patience pants to wait for Lindsay to finish what she's saying. She "overthinks her speech" according to the specialists at school. And yes, she is getting special ed (I am sorry to say I freaked a little when the process was finally complete and I realized that was what it was) which helps her in MANY ways.
We gave it 12 years, but there were some things that just didn't work themselves out.
I don't have any regrets--she's getting help she needs. I think with some kids, things like this work themselves out over time, and with some, they don't.
I think part of it is a NEED to be perfect. A fear that what she is saying isn't going to be exactly what she is thinking or wants you to understand. Part of the ongoing dialogue with her is to relax and get on with it, not to get too "inside her own head" about what she's telling you.
I know at three, that's not Bel's issue...it just rang a familiar bell with me.
I think having a little sister like Yelly will make a world of difference for her, too.
