Did We Just Become Best Friends?

You know how they say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach?  Do you know how archaic I find that?

Well, that's beside the point.  

Let me tell you, the easiest way to make me fall in love with you.

We saw our new speech therapist last week for the first time.

Our regular therapist is gone on a summer RV-trip with her family.

This woman played with Brian and had him saying all kinds of words.

I was appreciative of how quickly she seemed to make a relationship with Brian.

But it wasn't that, that made me fall in love with her.

It was as we were getting ready to leave and she said to me...

"Heather, I know I just met him.  Yet, I have to be perfectly honest.  I don't see an MR piece at all."

At that point I grovelled at her feet and told her how much I loved her.

Seriously, she's not the first professional to say it.  However, it never gets old to hear.

I know my son and I believe what I believe about him but it's always nice to hear it confirmed from others.

Isn't that a nice thing to hear, rather than getting upsetting or vague and disturbing news. I love it when our kiddos catch a break or we find a wonderful professional who is not afraid to look at the whole child. Kudos on the great SLPT - even if only temporarily

That's great and I'd follow her to the ends of the earth, or at least the grocery isle..... ;)

This really got me.  I know you weren't intending to evoke anything sad, but I felt sadness because I'm afraid those are the things I'll have to deal with about Tugboat.  I've never experienced that before, and I hope I'm lucky enough to find professionals like this one for him.

Big hugs to you!  The first time MR (borderline MR, as they worded it) was mentioned in an eval I seriously went into a deep depression.  It was hard, I won't lie.  But honestly, I just don't see how effective IQ testing is on our kids that don't process information the same way.  It doesn't mean they are less smart, it means they should be tested in a different way, IMO.
