Long Time No Blog!

Wow!  I am totally slacking.  This week I came back to work and the girls started at their new daycare.  They're doing great!  They love new friends, new teachers, and new stuff to keep them busy.  They will start actual school the day after Labor Day.  I hope that they continue to do so well.

Our 4 yr old had a pretty massive tantrum last Friday night.  She hasn't had another since though.  I am so proud of her!  Either way, we are going to do some therapy in September to get to the bottom of things. 

Our 6 yr old is about to make me go bazerk!  She is a very good girl, but the lying to stay out of trouble is getting on my last nerve, as is the making up that she has whatever ailment her sister is complaining of.  It's like she has middle-child syndrome, yet she is the oldest!  I think we may also do some therapy.  I think she is really covering up a lot of her emotions with random verbal rants.  She just talks 100% of the time.  She doesn't listen or focus well on what you're saying.  She has some vision issues that may be contributing to her over all lack of regard to things, so her new glasses will be in next week, and hopefully they will resolve some of these issues. 

Over all though, we're doing just fine.  Busy all of the time, but loving having the girls in our lives.  I pick at the little personality things because I want them to be happy, and these behaviors will eventually prevent that from happening if we don't get a good control over them now. 

I will try to update more!

yah for progress!! maybe more one on one time with the older child will help with the attention seeking? i know we are going to have to do that with our FD's (the little one will needs of time with P. -- she is really seeking a father figure).

Just read your response to my post on the foster/adopt forums: "Annoying behaviors..", and thought I'd post a thank you here while I check out your blog :-). Thanks so much for the feedback and advice. I love your comment "We have two ears, and one mouth, so we should listen more than talk" It's a classic that I'll have to bank :-). Thanks again, Puddleduck
