HEHE.. Don’t we all think so and all our children are smart, but I just had to have bragging rights today. Madisyn had her Speech-Language Evaluation done today with the Speech Language Pathologist. Yes she does have problems with her P, B, and F Sounds. Which they are going to work with her on those sounds but her language skills.. she is right now on a 6 year old level. Can you believe that? She is so awesome.
They went on and on about how smart she was and couldn’t believe her language skills for just turning four. LIke if they would ask her a question on the test instead of answering in a sentence or one word she would answer in a descriptive paragraph almost. For example one question was, if icecream is cold what is fire? Well she of course said Hot but would not stop there. She would say yes fire is hot and then a fireman would come out take his hose point it to the house and put the fire out. While the fireman was putting the fire out there would probably be a kitty cat up in the tree watching him.
She was cracking me up with how she would answer the questions. They asked her why would a child cry? She said because their mommies would not lay in bed with them when they went nite nite. HEHE.. we still co-sleep of course and sometimes I will have her go to bed before me if I have a really demanding project due. I’ll kiss her and tuck her in, but it still makes her sad when I don’t lay down with her. Now these are on rare occassions that I do not lay down with her. Most all the time I lay down with both girls till they are asleep :). But by her answering that.. WOW this really effects her. I was a little sad by that :(….
Another question they asked her was name all the animals she could think of. Instead of saying like dog or cat.. she went into saying porcupine, zebra, giraffe, elephant and monkey. I was impressed by her knowing all them already.
Anyways, I just cannot quit smiling after all the MRI showing about the spots on her brain and then the preschool sending home a letter about failing her articulation speech. Here I was so worried and then how well she done today. Also Madisyn did not start talking till just past her 3rd birthday. Everything she said was chinese, but when she finally started talking it was like she couldn’t stop LOL. I’m one proud mom right now love.
Just had to share with you all since you have been so supportive through all of this.

So cute! She sure is very smart!!!
Sounds like my son. He is a RIOT! He is so verbal – at two he spoke like a four yr old – no lie! It is so interesting when they are verbal like that because we get such good insight into what is going on in their minds!
Thanks so much for your prayers and good wished at my place today!!! 🙂

PS – when my son was two and a half I worked part time. One day we were reading a book and the child was sad. He said, “He is sad because his mommy has gone to work.” BREAK my heart! Needless to say, after a few months of every child being sad about their mommy going to work, I finally quite my job! 🙂
I knew that girl was BRILLIANT!
