Loved reading ALL the answers, but thanks for the food info. I think I can put it to work at my house...who knew?
Let me know if it works!!! :o)
Hey Renee!! Have you seen The Secret Life of Bee's??? I know you said that you were wanting to see it, but I didn't know if you have yet. I saw it tonight, and it was absolutely amazing!!! I haven't read the book yet, so I can't really compare to the book, but the movie is definitely a tear-jerker!! I hope you get the opportunity to see it. It's amazing!
I haven't!!! I so wish I could have but I don't think Kameron and Keeghan would have survived through it. I will definitely be renting it when it comes out. The book is SO good, you should definitely read it when you have a chance!
so? how was it (High School Musical 3)? is it worth the price of admission, or can i wait until the rental?
It was REALLY good!! You just have to be ready for singing out of NOWHERE! LOL But I guess it wouldn't be "Musical" without that! :) Kass and Kam loved it!
I LOVED IT! I thought it was the best of all three and I'm a huge fan of the first two. I'm planning to see it again. Did you love it, too or am I blowing this way out?
Yes, I really did love it! Kennedy loved it too! She pretty much loves anything with singing! I'm sure we'll be owning it when it comes out! :)
But i do need to go because i just turned my head and my 4 y/o is eating sour cream from the tub and i almost think DH gave it to him, not totally sure on the dh thing as he just left for work. We are at home and its dairy so would that be a home cooked dairy meal, lol?
LOL Absofreakinglutely! I just let my kids eat a tub of butter for breakfast, so what's the difference?! LOL! (I'm JUST KIDDING no one yell at me!)
I didn't know Kamm had sensory issues. Sorry, I sometimes only have time to skim and I mess a lot. *blush* Anyhoo, My 12 year old son was diagnosed with SPD when he was 7. We did OT for a year that included listening therapy. It changed our life!!
What is listening therapy?! I would love to hear more about it if you have time!!
How did you decide it was time for feeding therapy? Kayla eat like FOUR things (GF waffles, GF noodles - spiral only, GF pretzels, and bananas) right now. Gotta love that autism stuff.
Kameron was down to only a few things... chicken and fries (but he refused to eat "real" chicken, only the pressed patties), cheese pizza, bananas and apples, turkey sandwiches (but only if the turkey is VERY thin sliced), and things like chips and goldfish crackers, some cereal (always without milk), and his all time favorite PB&J. At first we took the hard-nosed approach of "If you don't eat what we're eating, you don't eat at all", so he wouldn't eat dinner and go to bed hungry. The next morning he would wake up throwing up. Without fail. I took him to the ped's office and she said she doesn't know WHY that's happening, but he HAS to eat dinner even if he eats PB&J every night for the rest of his life. HA! Try explaining to the girls why they have to eat real food and he gets PB&J @@.
SO a friend of mine had taken her son to this feeding clinic in NY and it really helped him so I looked for something like that here. They didn't have an inpatient program but they did have an OT who does it so we see her once a month and are sent home with homework... like eating peas with toothpicks! LOL She also gave us a chart for him to put stickers on every time he eats them. Like I said before, I can't wait to be able to prepare ONE meal that everyone will sit down and eat. (I'll leave out the fact that I HATE peas! hahaha)
BTW, I'd never heard of feeding therapy, or the sensory issue. This is facinating (I'm sure it's not first hand) I'm going to have to look it up and see what it's about. Is there a particular website that has good info?
I'm planning on doing a post about it soon! Watch for it!
Of course I HAD to try it (the Bubble Wrap game) and even knowing it was coming and with no volume (does it have sound?) I still jumped!
Ohhh yes it has sound. Horrible screaming noises. Stupid game. LOL
LOL--It says my hair should be brown. BUT..before chemo my hair was yellow blonde and it was REAL, not dyed. All fell out and came back BROWN! Ha!
Ahhh that's what Kennedy's did too! I miss her blonde hair!
My name is Kelly. I know Renee and her mother from Northern California. I want to apologize for leaving anonymous comments to Renee on these postings. While I am not the one to leave this insensitive message you blogged about here - I have left them. I do not have a "Google/Blogger", "OpenID","Name/URL" - so, I just leave it as Anonymous. I am very sorry to be associated with 'mean' people who do not think before speaking. I will try to start my posts from now on with my name, given I usually forget to "sign" it until after it has sent because I am used to my email automatically adding my name to the bottom.
Kelly, I leave anonymous comments open for my friends like you who don't have any other IDs to sign in with. This is definitely not who everyone was referring to... it's the people who come and pretend they are better parents than you and critize and insult and then hide under the anonymous postings. It's just really chicken and really irritating, but I'll leave my anonymous postings open so you and all my other friends who read here can still comment! :)
