Getting Through the Week

This week in Doodle's life is a big one.
Today we're going to the dentist to get 4 teeth filled and a full cleaning - under anaesthsia. He's excited. I'm scared.
Thursday we go back and meet with his child psychologist to get a full report. We've spent the past several months going through an assessment process. When we first started thsi process his doctor helped us through some basic assessment tests and there were signs he may have ADHD. But, several months later we finally are getting a full report from the psychologist who has been assessing him.
And, once we get that report we start working on behavioural techniques to "help him be the best kid he can be."
I sort of feel like we're at the tip of the iceberg here.
And, we just need to make it through the week.
But, as for Doodle ... He seems unphased.
He's excited about going to the dentist today.
And, he wants to know how he can behave better. Seriously, he often asks me if he can get his brain to work better so he knows how to behave.
And, as parents we're trying to get everything working.
Wish us luck!

"Seriously, he often asks me if he can get his brain to work better so he knows how to behave."

That just about broke my heart. He's such a sweet kid.

It's so amazing to hear how little kids think! My gf who has a little guy who is super shy said that the other day he said, "MOmmy, sometimes the words just get stuck deep down in my tummy".
I'm eager to hear all about the dentist and who the meetings go! If ONLY the bunny was excited about the dentist...we go next week and we've been role playing already!
