it's the most busiest time of the year

do i REALLY have to sleep? sometimes i wish i could go without just for a week or two. okay i would settle for a weekend. i feel it my seasonal responsibility to over-commit every year. i never intend on letting things slip. i really do have the best of intentions...

today for example i was about 10 minutes late getting every where i needed to go. if only i had woken up 10 minutes earlier my entire day would've been right on?! i explained this to shane as i sped across town trying to keep with my only 10 minutes late rule to get to dinner when he so valiantly reminded me that i actually woke up 20 minutes late, so in all actuality i had somehow managed to make up 10 minutes...i love him. he is my hero.

we have a special day coming up. not Christmas, although super duper important, but a 3rd birthday of our family caboose. so on top of making this day (the 20th) the most special day of 2008 for bubba, i do still have to plan for Christmas. my plate feels really full and yet i have managed to park myself in front of a movie screen 4 times in the last 3 weeks to watch my vampire beauties. priorities ya know?

have i mentioned how much cannon loves playing with knights? or that every time he goes for a drink or a bite it MUST be in or on green? he LOVES green. he only wants to wear "soft" pants. he is my pickiest about what he wears. he is a sports ball fanatic and will chill with dad in front of a game any chance he gets. on the dad note, have i mentioned that he would prefer to climb in his dad's pocket and be with him ALL the time? shane was out changing the shocks on the car recently (what a man right?!) and cannon stayed out with him in the cold with his tools. tyler tried to lure him back inside several times to play and cannon vehemently refused to stray. he is very loyal. he has a really intense lisp, i'm starting to wonder if we need to start therapy. i'm sure i will miss it when he outgrows it. his life as a toddler has been so different than ty's was. weird to think about.

well, i can either go to sleep, or go work on the 15 art smocks that i'm making for ty's class for Christmas. or i could start the skirt for ry. or, or, or, or,

I totally understand the sleep thing! I am partial to Cannon, probable cuz we share the same b-day? Sagittarius rock!

all right, i've been debating on whether ot comment but here's my therapist two cents. take it for what it's worth...at cannon's age, it's all about intelligibility-how easy it is for a stranger to understand him. the /s/ sound isn't firmed up until age six, but a lateral lisp like his is uncommon and often worked on earlier. Most kids are not ready for artic therapy (where you work on sounds, not language) until three but bottom line, if you have concerns, you should definitely at least get it checked out. Even if they don't recommend therapy, they might give you some great ideas to start working on stuff at home. The school district is obligated to help you from birth so you can contact your district, or ask your pediatrician for a referral. If they convince you he doesn't need it, I would insist. It's worth the peace of mind if it's been bothering you for a while. call if you have questions
