Update on us

Okay, just a quick update on here. I'll update more in-depth on my blog.

Bri started preschool on Sept. 9. I was a nervous wreck about it, especially when I learned that she was the only girl, she's the only one who can't walk, has special meds, feeding tube, etc. It wasn't reassuring to find out that the teacher had reservations about her being in the class, because she had no experience with someone with the type of disabilities Bri has. She has worked primarily with kids with Autism or SPD, which are the primary diagnoses of the seven boys in Bri's class, as well as some speech delays.

But, let me tell you, Bri loves going to school. She goes on Tuesdays and Thursdays right now, and every day, she brings home a piece of preschool artwork, which I am amassing in a collection. I need to get them all laminated and put into a book or something. Maybe scrapbook one or two of them. Anyway, back on track....Bri loves circle time, is the belle of the classroom. Everyone loves her, and, even though she has an assigned one-on-one assistant, the teacher makes the assistant share Brianna time with everyone. She has charmed the teacher, all three assistants, the nurse, and all of the therapists. Not to mention the boys in the class....She already has two little boyfriends, from the very first day. The first day, we were waiting outside for the teacher to open the door, and one of the little boys, Daxton, came up, and was very interested in Bri and her chair. He looked it up and down, was touching it, trying to touch Brianna. I found out when I went to pick her up, that another boy, Allan, was very helpful during circle time, showing her each object, explaining to her what everything was. That following Thursday, I dropped Bri off, and stayed there for a few minutes, just to show the assistant how Bri's AFOs and her TLSO brace work. While Bri was lying on the floor, first Allan, then Daxton came up, and started stroking Bri's head and cheek, telling her, "Hi, Brianna, I'm Daxton! It's Daxton!" or "It's Allan! Hi Brianna! Hi Brianna!" It was like a little contest. Since then, Daxton, especially, has shown an attachment to her, trying to get her out of her chair as soon as she gets there, so she can be on the floor where he can say hi and play. He starts trying to unbuckle her buckles and, if you're not watching, will try to lift her out of her chair himself. It's so sweet.

Anyway, that's Bri's school update. As for me, nothing much has changed, except, instead of having Mondays and Tuesdays off, I now have Sundays and Mondays off. So, while it means less time to run errands during the week, it also means I have one genuine day off, during which I cannot run most errands, so I will be forced to rest and relax most of the time. Other than, same old, same old. Still single, though, at this time, it is more of a good thing than a bad thing, as I was dealing with a psycho who wouldn't stop calling for a while (he finally took the hint...I'll blog about it on my other blog soon.), and am burned out on needy, jealous, possessive, overbearing, insecure, psychotic men for a while. And, with my luck, that's how they've all been lately. What's new with everyone else?

Ok, girls.

It's definitely time for some updates! Some of you are about to pop out babies, ALL of your babies are getting older, some of you are going to school, some are changing jobs, some have moved out of state or country...I'd love to hear about it all!

I really miss the old BBC board, where we "talked" often. I noticed that the old BBC is still up-and-running, so if y'all were ever thinking of meandering back over there, don't leave me out!

If you don't know how to post on the blog, then give us your update in the comment section for this post.

In fact, I'll start the updates with my own in the comment section.

Love y'all!

Where Are You?
