All about Isaac

As Isaac gets ready to start school things seem to be all about him at the moment.  We seem to have more and more appointments and different proffessionals are getting involved.  We are still waiting rather impatiently for an appointment with wheelchair services.  Isaac's friend has just got a wheelchair and Isaac had a go in it last week.  It was so much easier to push than the buggy and Isaac could wheel himself a little way too.

Today I talked to the SENCO at school about Isaac going part time.  He is going to start off going Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.  I took him to the disabled toilet at school today but he couldn't manage it himself.  He keeps saying it's his toilet and he wants to visit it every day.  He is doing really well with the potty training and has been dry for 4 days in a row.  It's a lot harder than when he was in nappies but I'm so proud of him for managing it.  He is at the stage when he wants to try out every toilet when we are out so the time in between picking him up from preschool and picking Jeremiah up from school is quickly filled up with a toilet tour of Wellington!  Isaac has been going to preschool all day on Thursdays as well as Tuesday mornings since Easter.  He is enjoying it but he is absolutely shattered afterwards.

I will try and blog about Jeremiah and Malachi next time.
