I don’t really want to put this whole thing in my sidebar, so I’m putting it here and linking to it.
I am a 30-something year old woman, married to a 30-something year old man whom I’ve dated since I was 17. We have two cats and a 2-point-something year old daughter with what currently looks like tactile hypersensitivity and feeding problems, compounded by anxiety. At this time, her therapist doesn’t believe she has Sensory Integration Dysfunction, but that could change as we pursue further therapy.
This weblog is my place to document the process of helping my tot learn to feed herself and explore her world like other kids her age do. If anyone ever stumbles on this blog while in a search for information about when to seek intervention for a child whose behaviors seem very odd but not critical, I hope s/he finds some of my observations helpful. (I’m not an expert in much of anything, but feel free to email me if you like. Really.)
I also use this place to record her milestones and my memories of her, because frankly I stink at keeping her scrapbooks and baby book up to date.
