Day 24 – W
Since today is W, I’m going to talk about a Wee One. Specifically, her speech.
I had a feeling it wasn’t quite progressing as it should be, and today, after a speech evaluation, I find I am right. I’m a little heart sore about it.
I’m not actually too worried about it because I think, once I learn how to teach her, she’ll pick it up. (My girl is wicked smaht.) I’m just a little sad it’s not coming along more naturally. As I’ve been working with her today and I watch her little face as she’s learning and absorbing how I’m talking to her, and how it lights up when I understand her or she mimics me, I’m sad I wasn’t always doing that.
Which I know is irrational: This is my first kid, my first time around kids, I don’t have any education in this, I did the best thing by seeking help…
So huzzah to all the speech therapists out there!
