Hello Attitude.


Isla has had such an attitude lately. I'm trying to ignore it, but wow, it's full-on. She's uber emotional at the moment, the slightest thing sets her off into a stream of tears. And she's cranky, defiant, and just generally naughty.

We've never really had any behavioural problems (well, I shouldn't say problems, this is really an 'issue' is suppose) so it's all new to us.

I know there has been a bit of change for her to get used to lately, me going back to work, then leaving work, botox, we've moved, I'm now going to school, she's being minded by my Mum and Ian more. I guess it all contributes to the 'issues', but ugh, I just want my lovely little girl back!!!

On her progress though, we've been having weekly physio and she's improved SO much. Huzzah! She's happy to do her exercises these days, which is a welcomed change.

We're accessing therapies through the Spastic Centre again, they're going to contact us about group therapy, dancing and something else, I can't remember.

They seem to have it all going on, so I'm happy with the decision to go back there. I explained that in the past Isla was the mildest child there and missed out on interaction with the therapists, they understood and said they'd work on something for her.

We have a speech assessment next Monday. Should be interesting.

Totally understand the attitude, Violet is the same at the moment.

Glad to hear her therapies are going well.
