Kids say the funniest things…another G-ism

January 2, 2012

Gregory has been wearing a patch over his left eye since he was about two years of age…..we patch his eye three hours a day in order to strengthen his right eye.  He is cortically blind in his right eye and only sees peripherally out of that eye.  His left eye is impaired with regard to how far-sighted he is…which in young children means that your entire world is blurry.  He of course hates to wear the patch….but once we get it on…he wears it…and does not take it off until he hears the timer beep….and then shouts: Patch Off!

Well….yesterday I went food shopping….a chore I really despise…and I bought carrots….Gregory knows that carrots are good for his vision…and he said:

“Mom, I want to take a diet on carrots rather than wear the patch”.

I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
