Another change today is our daily schedule. I start assisting with the middle school swim team for the next 6 weeks, but this year we have late practice - I don't get out until 6pm. So Doug is being He-Man and collecting both kids and cooking dinner (I plan and prep). It really doesn't even out $$ wise, but it's something I love to do. I've thought about dropping it while my kids are young but frankly, I would probably not ever get the position back.
We also have an appointment today with the psychiatrist we met with last week. This time Roman is coming too, and after she meets with him & us she will give us her recommendation on what we can do to help Roman be more successful (our greatest concern currently is school). It doesn't matter how Roman appears to be, it bothers him that he has a special seat during group time, he is removed from groups during center time, and sometimes his teacher even has to remove him from his table (on bad days). It's not affecting his learning yet, although he is reporting that Math is getting "harder" and he dislikes reading. In talking with his teacher, we suspect it's because he can't focus or concentrate on either thing when it takes actual effort.
Doesn't it look like he's wearing a lamp on his head? I know better than to do that, but it's pretty rare to get him to pose for a picture now - I have to take it when I can get it!
