I had arranged for Drama Teen to be around so that she could be in waiting for a very important delivery, while I went to Little Prince's IEP Meeting. The delivery hadn't arrived before I left for the Meeting, probably because I was on pins waiting for it!!

At the IEP Meeting Little Prince's teacher told me how proud she was of his progress in writing :-) He has now got a level 2B for writing, whereas previously his writing was graded P, ie Pre-grade-able. That is a HUGE improvement and is partially due to Little Prince's medication, but a LOT is down to his hard work and determination, and I and his teacher are so so proud of him. We also discussed Little Prince's worry that his medication wasn't helping him as much at the moment, and his teacher agreed that he is much more distractable at the moment, especially in the afternoons. We had noticed this at home too, and will mention it to his Paediatrician when we see him in the Summer Holidays. Even Little Prince's speech is affected, he forgets what he is saying before he is half way through his sentence!! Little Prince's teacher and one to one assistant are going to keep a close eye on him for the last remaining weeks of term to try and help keep him focused.

When I got back from the meeting I was greeted by a very sad Princess Lollipop, who was soon fast asleep! While she was asleep THE delivery arrived :-) It was her new playhouse, I hoped that the delivery men would be able to get it built before she woke up, but no such luck. She woke up and immediately grabbed her wellies and stood on the patio "overseeing" the construction!! She kept asking the men "MY house ready SOON?" and pretty quickly it was :-) She then spent the whole evening in there :-) She dragged Drama Teen inside the house and then kept her prisoner there as long as she could!! She kept telling Drama Teen "Stay dere, my get my toys! Wait no move!" lol Then when Mrs LMS came home from OUR shop, she turned her attention to her. They had quite a patter going :-) Mrs LMS had to knock on the door and Princess Lollipop would answer with a groan "What is it now?" and open the door then "OH it Mrs LMS. Nice a see you. Come in, sit down. Abba cuppa tea. Abba strawberry." It was very sweet :-) But quite repetitive lol And even though the Playhouse is currently brown, Princess Lollipop constantly refers to it as "MY pint house" (pint = pink with a "t" on the end!).
