  4. Preschool What do you do with friends who impose what they want to do on your life? Am I just getting old and cranky? It was my friends bday and she kept changing her mind what she wanted...(more) 11-14-2018 10:54am (7 replies)
    to do. Drinks Friday night - i said ok great lets go. Then it was raining and she didn't want to do that so she said brunch instead. I had plans Sunday morning - she was like - it is my birthday you have to come. Anyway I did go and I was the only one there. Then she insisted I come for cake another evening for her birthday - again only one there. Then another friend wants me to come to her church for a special guest speaker. I said I have to see what I have planned. She is like - no you have to come it will bless your life. WTF?? I thought I wanted friends but why do I have to feel obligated to do what they want me to do? I'm always going to them or driving. I feel like I'm being played.

I just found out she was arrested and might go to prison for years. I can't imagine what that must be like. She had a friend reach out to me on fb and ask if I could get some money to her. Anyway this is shelter mom/ single mom. Money is tight for me. Do I send her the money? I want to be there for her but also feel very vulnerable myself.

    Our son (just about to turn 3) just enrolled in CPELC. He's got speech and motor delays, and his EI therapists were recommending lots of PT, OT and speech -- his PT was urging us to ask for 5 sessions/week. Turns out, we're only getting 2 sessions/week at the school for each. Our CPSE coordinator told us that's to be expected, and that he'll be getting a lot of each therapy integrated into his regular schoolwork. We're new to all of this, so just curious if others have found that to be the case, whether there's any point to trying to get him more therapy within the school, or whether we should start looking for outside therapists for him. Thanks.

  17. Preschool Can anyone educate me about hypotonia/low muscle tone?...(more) 4-3-2018 1:29pm (2 replies)
    It has been suggested by preschool teachers that DS (4 yo) has it. He was evaluated and qualified for PT 2x wk. Googling it has come up with confusing results. Some sites say that kids can outgrow it; others say they can't, they can only improve the symptoms with PT but the underlying condition is still there. Some sites say it's a muscle condition; others a neurological condition. Pedi doesn't think he has it, at least not in the medical sense and that it's a "trendy" diagnosis nowadays. He met all his major motor milestones on time (rolling, sitting, crawling, walking). However, it would explain some of his behaviors in preschool -- not being able to sit still, pay attention, falling more often than seems normal, and poor fine motor skills.

    I once interviewed my grandma we called her Mamaw for buy credits swtor a class project. After 70 years filled with marriage, children, grandchildren, death, poverty and addiction, the thing about which Mamaw was unquestionably the proudest and most excited was that she and her family did their part during World War II. We spoke for minutes about everything else; we spoke for hours about war rations, Rosie the Riveter, her dad's wartime love letters to her mother from the Pacific, and the day dropped the bomb. Mr. Farooqui has more than 10 years of strategic planning experience, with expertise in business development and integrated marketing. Mr. She was preceded in death by her sisters, Ethel W.

  25. Preschool Twins differences in K...(more) 2-4-2018 6:17pm (10 replies)
    We got feedback from a school that with my twins, one twin is stronger than the other. Which is usually the case for twins. Anyone else have that experience or were both your twins strong? I am wondering what that means in terms of our chances for getting into the school. Also, twins switch so while sometimes one twin may do better other times the other may do better. It is just a twin thing. Have you ever had a situation where you got into a TT because both your twins were equally strong? I am so nervous! To clarify, they don't have development delays, but one has been having more fun with the play dates while the other has felt outside his comfort zone.

      If one of them turns out to be a far better student as time goes on, that child can always change schools. My "strong" student in K was passed up by the other one over time - two early to make the call and make them miserable.
