I am afraid I will be missing most of March with all of you my friends. My caseload has risen to almost a ridiculous amount of kids. My problem is I can't say no when I hear some little one is in need, I always think I can fit them in somehow. There were 34 one hour treatments over four days last week, and that does not include the two that canceled. Nor does it include my drive time which is extreme. Ah well this will pass and it will all even out. I am trying hard to get most of my paperwork done on Friday, my day off, so I have the weekend free for one little six year old I know and his two fury brothers.
Saturdays and Sundays start off the best. Even this ridiculous Sunday with day light savings time. Little Buddy likes to start his, "S" days in bed with the boys. They walk all over him and he laughs and laughs. They lick his face and basically trap him under his covers. He loves it!
We have gone to a gardening/social/communication club hosted by his retired Pre-K teacher the last few Saturdays. She was testing it out to see if this is something that would be beneficial for the kids. I thought it was great and a good way for Little Buddy to interact with kids outside of school. It will start back up in April. I asked her to try and figure out a camp or two for the summer. It is so hard to stimulate Little Buddy as he can't go to regular camps because he is still in pull-ups and he has special needs. I work all summer so I can't take him on field tips here and there. His teacher is thinking about how to host morning camps a few weeks over the summer. It would help him so much to be engaged in an activity with people I trust him to be with.
Little Buddy and I went to the shoe store after gardening club yesterday. I have the hardest time finding him sneakers that fit over his braces. I thought I would give it another try before resorting to Crocs again. Look what we found! They have this great Velcro z-strap that makes it easy to get his brace in and out of the shoes as the shoe opens up really wide. He loves them and to make it even better they light up when you stomp your feet. He has been stomping all over the place. They only had this color but a quick look online when we got home found a green pair that is now on the way to our house. Lets hope they hold up a bit better then the last pair of sneakers I bought him which wore out after three weeks. I also found these great shoes for me! As you can see I bought them in two colors. They are the Blossom Mary Jane's by Jambu. And they were on sale! Perfect for me for work this summer.
The boys are getting bigger every single day as you can see by the photos. They are so darling. Mr. 20 made it home for Spring Break last night and I swear they would not stop licking his face. Even when he tried to get up and get away they would climb up him and just lick him. I think Mr. 20 was tickled at their behavior. The only casualties this week were my leather sofa and a pillow. The leather sofa is my fault as they went for a tag on it a few weeks ago and I did not cut it off when I should have. So we now have some teeth marks and a bit if a tear in the corner of the sofa. I ordered some patches for it until they are old enough to not bite it again and then I will get it professionally repaired. Puppies! What can I say?
March is just going to be the worst month for me as far as paperwork and work. I have six major reports to write and they take up a lot of time. I am already done with two but can't move onto the others yet as they have a specific due date. I am so sorry if I will be missing out reading and commenting on your blogs. I am going to try and keep up, but please excuse me if you don't hear from me. April might be a little easier.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.
