Well, this is sort of hard because in some respects, up to a certain age, I believe "potty trained" is different for each one of our kids .....BUT, push comes to shove, I'd have to say letter C. Paige acheived letter C completely by age 5. Debbie
Well, Paige will be 9 years old, and I have been noticing alot more self talk, and alot more "nonsense talk" than ever before. In fact, she never stops talking, and there are times that I have no idea what she is talking about.....BUT, yes, I listen. I may not go right to the door if she is in her room, but I'll stand at the bottom of the steps/or the top, or around a corner...I agree, it is the only way I can find things out. Alot of times, if she is upset, she will go in her room and talk. Even if she is upset about being disciplined or frustrated with her homework, whatever it may be. I listen to hear what she is saying, so I know how she is feeling, because when I ask her she says "I don't know"..so if I can hear what she is expressing out loud and working thru, this this helps me in conversations with her later. However, I never let her know I've been listening. I know she is much younger than Laura, so maybe it will change in the future, but, I highly doubt it...I'll always be an eavesdropper!!!
I'll be interested to hear what the other moms say on this topic!

Yay, CC!! I am so glad things went well for Chris and will continue to keep you all in my thoughts and prayers that he is feeling better soon. As for the pain meds...that is a good thought on the vomiting, I, personally can not take certain ones for that reason. Keep updating us on his progress!! Debbie
Hi CC ~ so sad to hear Chris has to go thru yet another procedure, but am so glad to hear they finally figured out what it is and he will now feel better! Will you be able to have this done locally or will you have to travel out of state?
I know my son had it when he was 3 months old and it was awful. It was exactly what you described from the chest, he sounded awful. Can you get into your dr. again today? If her chest sounds crackily that is not a good thing. Has she been nebulized to try and break some of that stuff up? Good luck, let us know how you make out. I would personally take her somewhere.
