Proof I’ve Not Totally Screwed Up This Mom Thing

I love you mom so much, I probably should do some more chores for you…

Lyrics so good Taylor Swift should record them.

Also, I’m detecting a little Janis Joplin groove deep within her 5-year-old soul.

As a side note, Miss A just started speech therapy at school to help her with her lisp. So far she is loving it and I’m very happy that there’s no stigma attached to it at her age. It’s just another cool and special thing she gets to do at school, like buying chocolate milk in the cafeteria and riding on the bus for field trips.

Rock on little girl…rock on.

Have your kids done speech therapy at school? How did it go? This is all new for us.

    My nephew has had extensive speech therapy. But his was because he WOULDN’T talk, not because of the way he talked. At Baby Girl’s parent teacher conference the teacher told me that the lisp is something they usually grow out of. I’m not sure how pronounced Miss A’s is, but they haven’t said that Baby Girl needs anything therapy at this time.

    My sister is a speech therapist by trade. She often quietly suggests to parents when and where it might be suitable. It makes a big difference when they’re young. She’ll be able to rock even harder.

    Wow. What mother wouldn’t have kittens over that. And our 7 year old started focused speech help in kindergarten. I wish I had taken it more seriously — I thought it cute. I didn’t realize how much it would affect his learning to read — which he is really struggling with. So my advice to you is to dive right in and encourage her.

    I had to do speech therapy when I was probably in 1st grade. I had a slight lisp too. I don’t remember there being any stigma attached to it at all. It was just something special that I got to do with a few other kids that no one else got to do. And it worked! She’ll be fine! She has you for a mom! 🙂
