So, this is Open School Week. Joe and I conferenced with Grace today and a couple of other people who work with Theo (his social worker, therapists) and everyone was able to agree on one thing: Boy, can that kid pee!
Seriously, Theo's stream is nonstop. I could probably sing the Star Spangled Banner and finish it before he finishes peeing. I was wondering if I was the only one who thought so until his babysitter, Sharon, mentioned it and now the teachers brought it up! So it's official! He wins the longest pee award. He's totally going to hate me for this one day. I'll have to delete this blog when he grows up!
Next Monday we have a meeting with the CSE, the school board who helps place Theo in the right kindergarten program. I've been calling schools and of course, the closest ones to my house don't have the services he'll need. Groan. It looks like we'll have to travel further but hopefully still stay in this district.
Grace expressed concern that Theo isn't a behavior problem, and that means he might get overlooked in his new school. She said some programs have a tendency to pay attention to the kids who cause disruptances with their behavior. Theo is happy to just sit there all day, but that's not good enough if we want him to really learn and love school. I'm glad to know to look out for that, so I can stay on top of it and make sure he's getting attention.
