Terrific Thursday

I really meant to post yesterday, but school has recently started and it seems like I hardly have a minute to myself.

Okay, enough with the excuses and on to the part where I brag about my boys!

Big Guy is gearing up for college, which begins on Monday. He is taking 14 credits this semester. Big Guy also continues to show an increase with personal responsibility. My husband recently took the kids to a rental we own and had them help clean for a while, and he said that Big Guy stayed focused on each task and even came to him when each job was finished and asked what he wanted done next. This kind of thing just does not usually happen with our oldest son and it is gratifying to us to see these skills beginning to emerge, as they will greatly help Big Guy have a successful college experience.

Little Guy is finally back to having fewer meltdowns!!! I was able to take him to story time at the local library this week, which he tolerated quite well. Although I feel that we're not quite back to his optimum level of regulation, we are definitely back on the right track. This is especially important as school has started; with my "babysitters" back in class, there will be many times I have no choice but to take Little Guy with me during errands.

Here's hoping that the rest of the week is "terrific"!
