Speech Delay Motherhood

Do You Understand the Words that are Coming Out of my Mouth?

Are there any moms out there with a child with a  severe speech delay? Sebastian, our 2.5yr old, has a severe speech delay. Due to his lack of talking most days are spent with him screaming or screeching. An ear piercing scream its awful. 

Most times we take him out its beyond embarrassing. Sunday we went bowling. His first time. He was all about it until he saw the arcade games. He then was doing everything in his power to get to them. The looks we received were awful. 

He's in speech 2 days a week. He's signing. Someday are more trying than others. Mentally some days are so wearing that when my husband comes home I have to check out for a bit. Being screamed at alllll day is very hard mentally. 

Some say beat his butt.... he doesn't understand. Ignoring him.... doesn't work. 

Any other moms out there? Advice? A shoulder? 

I feel you. I hear you. I know how it feels. Stop judging the mom with the screaming toddler in public. Shes already melting inside silently the looks are not necessary.

Naked for Life

Potty Training....

We all go through potty training. Stickers, lollipops, M&Ms, Cheerios. Singing potties, seat attachments, throne potties. EVERYTHING.

My son we started at 18 months and he was going but he has a speech delay. A severe speech delay. He couldn't tell us he needed to go. So we stopped. We started back up. He is 90% potty trained.... YUP 90% lol He will go #1 and #2 on his own. But once you added pants or underwear or a pull up to the mix he goes in them. He still hauls his little booty to the potty and sits but doesn't take his underwear or pants, etc off. He is naked on the bottom half all day everyday unless we leave the house of course. I often wonder if this child will go through High School in his birthday suit. Just the lower half of thy suit of course. Do you think they will make an exception on the dress code for him? Asking as a concerned parent. In the meantime pass the wine
