On Friday Master A has his first session of proper speech therapy. I think it may be an assessment on the first day but I hope they give me some information on how to get him to talk. He doesn’t say much at all. I am guilty for mothering him too much, giving him what he wants but I did exactly the same with Miss A and she started talking at an early age.
I know that Master A isn’t the same as Miss A but he will be three in September and him not talking is causing problems. I can’t potty train him, I don’t know what he wants some of the time and I want his opinion on things. I want to know what goes on in his lovely caring mind.
Hopefully after a few sessions, and time, Master A will start to talk and then he can have fantastic conversations with us. Once he starts to talk, perhaps we would love him to be quiet, Miss A has never stopped talking, she talks constantly!
He did make me cry at the weekend, he asked for something for the first time. He asked for a cuddle! I was so happy to hear him ask for something and what a lovely thing to ask for! The next day he asked for a biscuit! Just a single word each time, no complete sentences, but it is a start!
I love both of my children and I want them to have a fun and enjoyable life..but most of all to be happy and healthy. I am sure being able to talk will help. I bet they will thoroughly enjoy chatting to each other! They love each other very very much!
I will let you all know how it goes. One day we will have a talkative boy. I know boys are known to be not so early talkers but my instincts are telling me that Master A will benefit from speech therapy. I hope this is true!
