Firstly I need to write this before I forget (I don't have Alzheimer's just kids so brain mush,you know the feeling?) when you go to the Blogger dashboard and it flashes up names of blogs (so you can have an insight into all the blogs on blogger) there was one that flashed up "personal Lapdance". I am now assuming that some dirty porn link sneaked its way into blogger.I didn't actually click on it so if you have a knitting blog and its called personal lapdance I apologise now but if you don't and you are just some dirty perv making money on nudey sites,trying to infiltrate wherever you can, I am telling you politely to bugger off ( and I am only being polite because my Mum and dad read my blog!!!!)
Gee do you think they are scared??
Anyhoo - I have some great personal news,my youngest daughter who has gross motor development delay (we think?? such an unknown hole of darkness but that is for another post)has started crawling. Yippppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
This is soo wonderful because at our fortnightly physio ( new nice physio who isn't going to give up on Saffy like the last cow who we paid $85 bucks a pop to see Saffy and tell me how something was sooooooo wrong with her....blah blah wont go off on that tangent) we have been focusing on getting her to stand as we thought she had bypassed crawling due to her bumshuffling.
This is wonderful because she has done it out of the blue.
This is also wonderful because it means she is strengthening her arms (which have little muscle tone)
Triple wonderful because it is a natural stepping stone for eventually walking.
Quadruple wonderful because when she does it it she says "cccaaawwwllliiinnnnggg" and then stops and claps her hands. Oh so cute!
Now I am not going to get all hippy alternative on you but I contribute alot of this new found skill to a new therapy we have been trying.
It is called Craniosacral therapy
A very non intrusive therapy that was recommended to me for children with developmental delay.
Then there is a very caring attentive physio that believes whole heartedly in is patient. A million dollars cannot buy that. I believe we are finally ( after six weeks)reaping the rewards of a therapy that just maybe helping Saf reach her potential. We shall keep our fingers and toes crossed for a good while yet but its nice to see a little bit of progress!!!!
I have also being trying my hand at some gocco printing. Definitely hasn't been too successful - SOME
may even say I have been a pain in the ass trying to teach to get it right..... After a few attempts I have ended up with one print that I want to use on some baby cards. Still a little unsure.... feedback...anyone?????
Anyhoo back to school this week. Oh well no more pyjama days (sniff sniff) no more trips to the Nail bar and getting a pedicure while my five year old gets her nails and toes painted at the same time.( Hope social services dont read this) No more rip off PAID ENTERTAINMENT
( really used my trump cards way to early in the school hols) and thank god I didnt have toLINE UP
on our one visit to an indoor playcentre.(snot and brats galore).
I am sure I will survive.
