What a day!

All kids are gifted. Some just open their packages earlier than others.

Yesterday was quite a day. Harder than I hoped it would be. Because it is the end of the school year, we always take the kids to see their paediatric autism psychiatrist before we leave for summer holidays. You keep hoping that they are getting noticeably better and that they have major improvements and its always disappointing when they don't. Kiana hasn't really improved over the past year. She has regressed in alot of ways and her "comprehensive" age hasn't really improved much. Sure, she's got an 8 yo body, but she has a 4-5 yo mind. I keep hoping that her mind will catch up with her body, and maybe it will, but its not happening at the speed that I want it too. Thank goodness the school year is almost over because they aren't helping one bit. They just point the finger at me and bad parenting. Hopefully next year we will get a better teacher - one who will understand what Kiana is actually going through.

And so, we keep on keeping on. It just means more rigid scheduling with less "free" time to do what we want. It means making sure Kiana knows what is going on every second of every day. Well, we gotta do, what we gotta do!

**huge hugs** it is so tough to want the best for your child and yet be impeded by teachers and other 'professionals' I hope your summer is better and next year brings its own rewards.

Well we know it isn't the parenting!!!! I just love it when the professionals aren't doing their jobs and they just put the blame to someone else!
