Alison is beautiful and doing great. I love her picture. I wish I could get the nerve to bob Dani's hair. My Dani just started kindergarten and has behavior issues and tends to be quite bossy. She is an only child. Her father, my ex has two kids who ar 19 and 23 so Dani really never grew up with kids.
And my heart aches for your family. What loss. I can't imagine. I am so crazy in love with my nephews and nieces. What a heartbreaking time for all of you. So sorry to hear about your precious nephews.
I hope all goes well. Please let us know. Do you go to a specialist or a regular dentist?
Dani's bottom two teeth broke through before her bottom teeth fell out. I never took her to the dentist. Bad mom on my end. The baby teeth did fall out and the other two took their place. Dani's top two teeth are going to come out any day now. But I don't think her new teeth have popped through. Have not felt them.
I should have taken Dani to the dentitis. Is Daisy pretty comfortable with the dentist? I like ours. He works with all kids.
Hello, I am on a search. I know there are webcams for the Internet, but am looking for the same type of camera/video for my TV. Dani loves to watch herself in the mirror so would like to have something like this for the TV so she can watch herself. She loves to emulate playing teacher, dolls, doctor and lunch lady.
Also, Christmas Eve is always at my house and thought it would be fun for the kids to watch themselves.
Does such an item exist? I looked under karaoke machines too. Any help would be appreciated. I thought I saw an ad on TV with kids playing and watching themselves while they played. Maybe it is just a plain ol camcorder. Pretty techy illiterate on this end.
As the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches here is the US. I would love to hear what other's are thankful for, specifically, regarding their family and beautiful precious loves with that "extra something special".
Please chime in from all over the globe.......
I am so thankful for the beautiful happy giggles and smiles that greets me in the morning and the wide grin as Dani comes running to me with open arms when I pick her up at day care or school. So much more, but just a start. And, stinky peweys that actually make it to the potty.
Kim mom to Dani [glow=red,2,300]I will love you forever and ever[/glow].
Thanks so much for sharing. Dani has an innate ability to empathazie and show compassion. I foresee her working with little kids as she gets older. Even though Dani is 6, 2 and 3 year olds gravitate to her. I am excited to see how she grows and lives she will bless.
Hello all, Your replies helped me a lot. I have these visions of getting called at work that I will have to take Dani out of the schoo. I guess I have fears. Since, no one to depend upon but myself.
Dani was sick on Monday and Tuesday and bless her precious heart blessed me with the same bug.
Ericasmomma, I have always wondered the same thing. Do they expect more out of our kids. At the meeting we were told Dani was functioning at a 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 year old level. Well I hope the punishment is appropriate for her "coagnative age group:?
Hello all, I pop in and I pop out. However, I usually read UNOmas on a daily basis. I would love to reply and interject more. Kind of hard being working full time and being a single mom. But I just LOVE reading what everyone has to say.
Dani just turned 6 a few weeks back. Where does that time go?
She seems to be enjoying kindgergarten. The biggest challange is her behavior. She gets a lot of time outs for non compliance or agression toward a peer or staff. My ex and I called a new meeting last week and I felt we are all on the same page. I just don't know how to help Dani be a better friend and student. She is quite verbal but is quite naughty in her behavior. This is preventing her from being included more into her kindergarten. I am going to take a class so I can talk to her "typically" developing peers during National Inclusion week.
With that being said. Any ideas on what other's have taught children regarding DS? The whole staff would like to see Dani remain with her peers as she progresses through the school system, so I imagine I will be talking every year to her class.
Dani is an only child (Hi Jelani's mom)..You know what I mean. Anyway, she has not had the priviledge to have siblings. Well-she does have a 19 and 23 year old brother and sister who are in college, she rarely sees. But she never grew up with them. Basically, she has always gotten my full attention so am wondering if part of the acting up is that. I have taken her out for socialization since day 1 and put her in daycare when she was 2 so she could be around other kids. She used to be so sweet and demure but can be quite bossy now. I guess this is more of a vent.
