Navigating the world of parenting is a challenge since there are always others questioning what you do, more so than any other career I've had. Plenty of people told us not to worry about it when Kieran wasn't talking at all at 18 months, but by 20 months it was leading to so much frustration for him not being able to communicate that something had to be done.

He'll be 2 next Friday, and he is saying so much in both English and French that I've given up trying to keep a log anymore. His frustration now is over being told no & testing limits, typical of being a toddler & no longer over language. The speech therapist said he'd need 6 months of weekly sessions, and after some research/reading and taking a step back while we were on vacation, we respectfully disagreed and have stopped after about 3 months.

We are thankful for what it has accomplished, but there's simply no need to push Kieran when he's on par for language development. He may not be over & above the norm, but so what. He's thriving & learning and having lots of fun, and that's what life is supposed to be about in the summertime for any kid.

I'm glad I decided to sit on my hands and not fire back an email at my prof that I did, in fact, do one of the things she docked me a point for. It Just Doesn't Matter!

I'm also in utter disbelief that I've been back to school a full year with a 3.95 GPA. Even if I keep this insane pace I still won't graduate summa cum laude because that requires 90 units. Nah, I'll stick with the current pace and my degree next summer, thanks :)
