The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

Snippets

Posted on: January 18, 2011

Today is the first day of our new Tuesday routine… Shoshanna had been saying, overtly and through offhand comments, that she was feeling a bit too overscheduled. And really… Her bus comes for her at 7:15 every morning and we usually get home a bit after 5. While she does have free play time at after school, that’s still a he’ll of a long day. So now, since my teaching schedule allows it, I pick her up at school on Tuesday afternoons and we come home and hang out for a bit before it’s time to go to ballet. So far this afternoon she had a snack, did her homework, and made cards for her ballet teacher and the assistant teacher.

Shoshanna and Jordan have launched a coordinated attack: they want to have a sleepover. We have told them that we’ll talk about it. It’s amazing what a difference a couple of months have made in their ability to negotiate their play – the past several. times the two of them have gotten together there has been next to no conflict AND it hasn’t devolved into each of them in a separate room doing her own thing.
