My son who is 5 has the same problems as yours. He's been in speech therapy since he was 2 and is in a kindergarten for kids with communication difficulties. I have to translate for DH and like you, sometimes have to guess at what he's saying. He's gotten a lot better but still has a ways to go.
You didn't do anything wrong. I didn't do anything different between my DD and DS.
Is your son in speech therapy? If not, he should be. Contact your pedi for an evaluation.View Thread
My DD is very articualte in contrast to her brother. Yesterday I was talking about picking up some donuts on the way home from church and asked if she wanted a white one w/sprinkles or a brown one w/sprinkles. First she said white one w/sprinkles and then said "Actually, I think I want an apple fritter." I told her that was too big for her but was amazed at how she said it.View Thread
We took Kylee ice skating yesterday for her birthday (her actual birthday was Sunday). She did pretty well for never having been on skates before. They have buckets to use for balance and she used those as she skated around.View Thread
I'd like to be able to say that but we don't see the kids often. None of the grandkids live in town and one lives several hours away. We do get updates from my step daughter though. She's the one who's due any day now with her 3rd boy.View Thread
My DD will be 3 on Sunday (Veteran's Day in the US) so I'm moving up a tad early.
I'm 43 with a 5 year old and a soon-to-be 3 year old. I have 4 step children and 3 step grandkids with a 4th due any day now. I'm an accountant and DH is a cabinetmaker. We also have two cats and one fish.View Thread
Things have been going pretty smooth at our house. Sunday, DS woke up at 5:45a (old 6:45a) which was pretty good for him. He's been waking up between 5:15a and 5:30a during the week which is normal for him.
DD has been a bit cranky in the evenings but not too bad. She's been waking up at her usual time which is good.View Thread
