Operation Make Riley Listen is in full force at the Kibbe house. This issue has nothing to do with Riley's mild hearing loss and everything to do with being a sassy almost 6 year old. Riley is having trouble lining up from recess and staying on task during school when he is away from his typical classroom teacher. This makes recess, music and PE challenging.
I've been reaching out to all my great resources for ideas. I am continually reminded of just how blessed we are and how many people Riley has touched. Riley has an army of people cheering for him, praying for our family and encouraging us all on a daily basis.
I have received some great ideas and will meet with his school principal and teacher tomorrow to strategize on the best way to make him successful. I am sure we'll get this figured out but I'm hoping it is before I have an entire head of gray hair. Who know recess could be so stinking stressful??? Please please send me any other ideas that you have. I figure that if I get enough suggestions one will have to be the magic solution. Hey a mom has to dream right?
Operation Make Riley Listen makes for interesting dinner time conversation. We have been talking and talking with Riley about how he needs to listen and make good choices at school. We were talking through today's recess where he wouldn't line up and what the teacher did and how he should have lined up. Riley was answering and telling us what we wanted to hear. Justin wasn't buying the story Riley was giving us so he asked Riley if he saw an elephant at school? Riley - Yup
So of course Rex had to get in on the action so he asked-
Did you eat a squirrel for lunch?
Did an alien land on the playground?
Did you see a caveman? No Caden.
Good to know he does listen to some of our questions. He actually did talk to Caden after school.
