I agree! People seem to want genius children, but I would be thrilled with kids who were developing according to "schedule".
I once joked before Katie that it would be so fun to have a really smart kid. Katie could count to 100, say her abcs and spell everything when she was 2, but now at almost 4 she cant even tell you her name. Shes smart, she just cant communicate at all.
I know what you mean about the update reports. Ive learned to not schedule anything else for the day when we have evaluations because the rest of the day will be spent crying.
I was pretty much forced by my very good friend who also has a special needs child, into a moms group and we had a meetup Friday. It was amazing. They said everything I think all the time and it was good not to feel alone. I'm not social at all but this is really helping me. If you have a group in your area, I highly suggest joining.
