When I got home from work last night I went straight over to my Mum who was holding Rosa and help my arms out for a cuddle. She wouldn’t come to me, burying her head into my Mum’s chest and screeching. So I took her off Mum and she twisted and screeched until I gave her back to Mum. I was so upset 😦
Once Mum had left I started doing some tidying up and found crisp packets, milky way packets, biscuits etc… and I thought, perhaps she wanted to stay with Mum as she feeds her junk food all day? I hope it is that really 😦 I hate going to work and leaving my children, and have them reject me on my return is not helping.
As a way to help Charlie talk, we have been teaching him phonics. He has a DVD and we do it from a book also. He can do 19 sounds and recognise them in printed format. He read his first word this week. He sounded out CAT, cuh, ah, tuh…..cat! It is helping him with his talking, as he is making all the sounds needed to form words properly. I am so proud of him, and he really loves learning. He still can’t count to 5 though and colours are still very much hit and miss. I think he is going to be a child with strong points and weak points.
His actual speech therapy appointment came through on his birthday next week! We can fit it into the day, but how annoying.
Off to Legoland this week! It’s going to hurt the diet I feel, but Charlie is very very excited….and so are we lol
