Chasing for appointments

Today I called both the SALT and paediatrician to find out about next appointments, and had to leave answerphone messages for both. The paediatrician's secretary did call me back just before 5pm, but only to say that she knew the report had been written but that she couldn't say when the next appointment would be. I pointed out that the paed had told me I'd see her again in a month, but she sounded confused and unsure of that, saying she is away at half term and so she really didn't think I'd get an appointment before early March. My heart sank and I'm already sure this is the start of lots of brush offs. Still I tried to stay as polite as possible, realise I need to stay on the right side of this lady!

Sasha was in nursery all day today - she was very pleased to see Tamsin and I when we went to collect her, but the fact I had taken her Upsy Daisy boots home and she would have to wear her nursery boots home was a dealbreaker. Eventually we left with no boots on her feet (so she had to sit in the buggy when normally she quite likes walking home). At home it was straight to the kitchen as usual, and refusal of all healthy tea options, so I compromised and let her have one little chocolate to calm her whilst I then warmed her Dora pasta shapes (her favourite), and made her some toast. Am sure she doesn't get snacks as often as she would like at nursery! Hunger is definitely something that sets her off and sometimes she's not patient enough to wait for 'proper' food. Having said that, she will still eat some good foods happily, unlike her big sister who only ever really wants to eat the sweet unhealthy stuff! Ah food, the bain of my life!

So straight after tea Sasha made her way upstairs alone and came to find me holding the summer dress AGAIN (freshly washed now though!). Only slightly worried about what will happen when she grows out of it....
