My Little Cricket’s Delay: Getting Another Perspective

I cannot tell you how horrible and confusing trying to navigate my Little Cricket’s delay. I don’t know anyone who is going through the same thing other than the mentor that has taken me under my wing. I talk to friends and family but no one is in the muck and the mire with me.

This week Ms. Pool Shark came with me or observed in my home my Little Crickets various therapies. Our schedule is getting pretty busy but she managed to see a bit of everything. She visited a JASPER session, watched floor time and speech therapist interact with my son, and visited the preschool Brite Kids in the Rainbow Room. Ms. Pool Shark has a bachelors in Psychology and so knows more about children and their developmental milestones than I do. It was so wonderful to get a second set of eyes and validation that she felt like I was going down the right path.

Now when I talk about these things with her on the phone from almost 3000 miles away she knows what I am talking about. I have never felt more loved.

But it wasn’t all work… we did find a little time to relax and play. Not like old times for sure but it was wonderful in its own way. We visited my favorite restaurant and then we headed to the spa. Ahhhhh the spa. I wish I could come twice a week.
