Some time ago I gave up pretending that I am not a 'pushy' mum - after all I am enrolled to study Special Ed - hoping to understand the best options for my Hannah and other special needs kids. Now I have a much worse confession to make - I am just a tiny bit competitive Mum too - tomorrow is Hannah's first EI group session for the year. I love the two other mums and their kids that are also in the group. I am really looking ofrward to catching up with them and seeing how the little ones are going. But, there is this incy wincy part of me that hopes they haven't absolutely taken leaps and bounds over the break. Why do I have this mean spirited secret wish? I want my Hannah to shine! She HAS made amazing progress over the break. I am so proud of her and can't wait to show her off to a bunch of mums and professionals who I know will understand just how significant her walking and speech development has been. OK. I might be hoping that their kids have done well too - they are both pretty adorable too - maybe we can share the limelight, or maybe not ...

Hannah seems ot be settling in ok - it isn't the total disaster that it might have become. The new teacher is still getting to know the kids and an IEP needs ot be drawn up but so far so good. Fingers crossed that she has a really good and supportive year there.
