After a few hours of that, I took her crazy behind to her bed.... she fell fast asleep. I rest my head and the alarm rings....I hit the ground running... just like every morning.
Good things did happen today. Occupational Therapy with Karen started for Little Al today. Now Karen is amazing...you know why? She was Big Al's OT. (I have to stick with who you know and I know she does awesome work.) She was Big Al's OT for a year for EI. She started her home-based sessions when Little Al was three weeks old. Big Al aged out at the end of August. I called her not too long ago,asking if she had space for us on her schedule....She made space for us. I was so excited when she came to our door. Big Al even remembered her name.(Which isn't that hard for him because in EI all of his providers were named Karen...crazy huh?) We had a round of hugs and right to business. We missed her so much, she was a big part of our family and we are very lucky to have her back. She told me that she had an empty nest feeling when she didn't have to come to our home any more. Welcome home, Karen!
Those who have been following my blog and Facebook posts know that I have been reading "Raising A Sensory Smart Child" by Lindsey Biel and Nancy Peske over the last couple of weeks and I completed it just a few days ago. When I completed the book, I posted my success on Facebook and got to work on post-iting the section that my husband needed to read, pictured above. This morning, my sister and I had a conversation about the book and it was noted that she needed to read it when my husband was done with the post-ited section. It reads like a textbook so it wouldn't cut into her school time.
I am pleased to say that Nancy Peske, co-author of the book, responsed to my Sensory Diet post. HOLY COW! The first thought that came to my mind with "I HAVE TO CALL A LIBRARIAN!" I called my Bestie, Roxy and told her the exciting news. It is a great feeling to be recogized. I love reading the book and I learned so much more about what is going with the Al's.
