Today was a great day for the kids. We are out of our NADH (I ordered over the weekend and forgot that Monday was a holiday) hopefully we’ll be back in stock on Wednesday at the latest. But all other supplements were taken.
- Acetyl L Carnitine
- Omega 369
- Cod Liver Oil
- Esstenta Water
I have ordered more acetyl l carnitine, NADH and a new item Himalayan salt. I will be ordering my Divine Child drink on Thursday.
OK, back to the kids. Both kids had a great day, Marcus’ teacher again commented on how super focused that he was and that Jai Lynn had started her MI Access test and was doing pretty well. Upon getting the kids home, I gave them both about an hour to wind down then I started with Jai Lynn first on her homework. We worked on multiplication, page 2 of her spelling packet and Time for Kids booklet. First the TFK booklet requires a lot of reading and comprehension and she did fairly well with reading and recall, although it was a bit frustrating to her because the first story included many words that she was unfamiliar with. The first story was about Palestine wanting be become independent (or something like that) and that is a story that I think any kid would have trouble with. It was quite difficult. The other story was easier but by that point she was already a bit frustrated with the entire TFK process and said “We’ll do more next week” lol I told her no we have to finish the packet more tomorrow. Next we went to the second page of her spelling packet which is contractions. It took her to the fourth one to get the direction (it could’ve been the way I was explaining it) but once she took over she completed it on her own with very little direction. The final piece that we did were multiplication flash cards and she did ok, she is trying her best to make the transition from addition to multiplication (which is difficult for the “typically” developing child) we did 0, 1, 2, 3 (not the entire number chart, I picked and choose various ones). Jai Lynn overall did very well with her homework this evening very proud.
Marcus Jr, tonight worked on his personal information and he remembered to write his entire name and remember the numerical portion of his address, he needed assistance remembering the street name, and city and almost got the state on his own. We next worked on math skills on addition and subtraction and he did quite well (will have pictures up by this weekend). Next we worked his spelling list from his second grade class and I just had him copy the words onto another sheet of paper and as he wrote them he spelled the word out which was great, not sure if that is a skill he obtained from school, me or the tutor or a combination of the three. But it was great to watch him be engaged in his homework and not just blindly copy. The last piece that we did tonight was reading, I had him log the book into his reading journal and write his name on the sheet. After that he was done, Marcus, Jr did a great job with his homework this evening. He did a great job overall. Whatever was going on yesterday was gone today.
The only thing weird today was his stool, it was almost diarrhea like but he wasn’t upset, not sure if it was something he ate(food wise) or something non food that he placed in his mouth. We still have issues with him mouthing non-food items, although not as bad as it was it is still unnerving to say the least. So just monitoring him and watching to see what happens next.
Watching and waiting to see what tomorrow brings. Whatever it brings I feel thankful thus far for the progress that we’ve seen.
Wishing you Blessings and Recovery,
