Today is Tre` Day!!!
OMG it’s been three years. I’m a mother of a three year old. LOL It sounds weird but good to hear and even better to say. I will admit that I haven’t gotten over the events that transpired years ago. It STILL chokes me up. Then when I look at him, he looks at me (says something about Elmo) I feel comfort. I can’t get past the fact that they never believed he’d make it. This child is doing a lot more than what was expected of him and he gets better every day.

I tried to get him on film singing Happy Birthday To Me (oh it’s always all about him…oh boy) and Hi to a couple of his Aunties READING HIS BLOG…He told me know and proceeded to crawl away to bigger and better things.

On this date, three years ago at exactly 7:43 pm, my life changed. I was blessed with the greatest gift I could have been given. I thank God for him because I didn’t live or appreciate life until we had him.

Stinka Do Little
Tre` recently had yet another evaluation. It’s so interesting to see how so many “specialist” tell you so many different things. One would say he’s 18month, one would say 24 months, I’ve also heard 15 months. I honestly don’t know who to believe sometimes. He DOES have delays, I can’t argue that, but I think they are giving him low expectations…I can’t really explain it. It’s like they READ his history and base a lot of it on his evaluation. Shouldn’t the bulk of it come from where he’s at now?

It doesn’t help that Tre` sometimes get shy or untrusting and refuse or ignore prompts. Here I go, “He can count to 13. Come on Tre`, let’s count.” He’d crawl away in search of a toy. “Do you want to count?” Tre` would say,” No!” Then he’d laugh and try to escape. Then they look at me like, “CAN he count?” Then they would sketch little notes. Grrr! When THAT doesn’t work, I’ll move onto singing. He LOVES to sing nursery rhymes. “Let’s sing Tre`! Row, row, row your boat.” If I didn’t know any better I’d swear I heard crickets, not Tre` singing. “OK, Twinkle, twinkle, little star….” After singing the WHOLE song by myself, Tre` has an expression that reads, “Mom, I’m not going to sing. You’re embarrassing me.” &@#$ grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

I guess there’s nothing I CAN do about it. It’s just aggravating because we know he does a lot more that’s expected but he…the stinker is just selling himself short. Is there an underlying cause behind this? I can't just "let it go." I've NEVER been able to do that, especially with him. Something just doesn't seem right. I'm just not sure what it is.
