My daughter also hated reading. She has severe dyslexia. She did not learn to read FLUENTLY until she was 14 years old, but the damage had already been done to her self esteem. There was never anything wrong with her intelligence, she was GATE identified as early as 3rd grade. My son on the other hand has always been a strong reader from age 4 on. Who knows why some kids *get it* and others don't? I think it comes down to learning styles and one size fits all public schools do not fit even most.

Hey Kat, I tried to e-mail you at the address on your profile, but it came back undeliverable. I'd like to be a welcome member but I can't seem to get to you. My e-mail is cliverules at comcast.net
from marilynstar :
Thank you SO much for that insightful note. I think you might be on to something! I'm trying to remember if Marci was this bad before Scarlett came and I can't recall at least as many instances as there are now. I will definately give this a try when I have some free time away from the baby!
from grt8f84me :
Just wanted to let you know that I added you to my buddylist. ;)
from smedindy :
Thanks for the comment. My impression around here is that lazy parents shove pacifiers in the mouths of toddlers to get them to shut up. Seriously!

from cleanstart :
Thanks so much for the note!!! I have two kids, a 8 year old daughter and a 10 year old son. My son also has ADHDc and it can be so tiring at times. He will not take his medicine and I'm not a big fan of medicating my kids so we try to get through this on our own. It's so hard and I want to throw my hands up at times. I can't imagine the struggles you go through daily having 2 children with special needs. Hug to you! I'd love to read you if you dont mind. karen@houstonfamily.org

You're a lot closer to the Canadian than Moo is! LOL He lives in Scarbrough.

from dangerspouse :
Hi babe! Thanks for the great note at my place - I loved the empathetic tales :) Why do we love those little fur bags, anyway?
from xnavygrrl :
I wanted to say thank you so much for the support. I appreciate knowing that even with your hands full you care about what's happening in my life.
from kellbelle :
LOL! No it is NOT you. If you want to know who it is, just email me and I can tell you about it. I'm not sure the person reads me anymore but they used to so I don't identify them... and that really wouldn't be fair anyway, would it?
from beckers-j :
The movie is actually based on a short story rather than a book - which I think is why the movie was so rich. I sometimes get driven away by hype myself, but not this time. It's not often that I see a movie that I think about for days, but this is one of them. Thanks for the note!
from tudor-diva :
Thank you so much for the great ideas. I am going to get some decorations tomorrow. Again, thank you.
from kellbelle :
Thanks for all the notes! I'm trying to catch up with everyone... I have one day to catch up and then I start school. Talk about avoiding laundry, cleaning, etc!! hehe
from beckers-j :
I knew the answer was Darth Vader, too! But not before they even asked the question - that's just weird. ;)
from boxx9000 :
MERRY DECEMBER 25th 2005!!!
from xnavygrrl :
This is not all in your head. You are not crazy. It is not fair of your husband to pull that card whenever he's so mad that he'll say anything to hurt you. That is not right. You have so much to do everyday. I am a single parent so I get a taste of that, but I do not have a special needs child either. You have so much riding on your shoulders. I wish there was time for you to do something just for you. I'm so sorry that you have to deal with this. It's just not right.
from somstar :
I gotta get your password again, I can never remember it!
from teachin-usa :
Mmm. Yes White Spot is so yummy! Actually yesterday was my very first visit. Thanks for adding me- hope I can keep you entertained!
from im2evil4u :
Hey, I emailed you for the password, but it was returned as undeliverable. Could you send me an email with the info? Thanks
from kellbelle :
I think you're right about the dream. When my dad died, I would dream about him in that way too. Almost like THEY were the ones needing to know that I'm okay. At least I can HOPE that's what the ex would want.
from xnavygrrl :
Good for you. Put your foot down!!!
from kellbelle :
Yep we have geeksquad, too, but I figure I can do what needs to be done, and so far I'm right! LOL I'm just working on getting the info off the old compuer. then I will reformat the drive and have a usable computer for something else.
from xnavygrrl :
My God, that is awful! To think that people who are supposed to protect and love you let that situation happen at all!!!! I cannot imagine that being done over and over at that age. Mine happened between the age of 12-15, so I was older. But you were just a baby. I am so sorry. I'm sorry you weren't protected or believed. That is so sad.
from kellbelle :
Thanks for your note. What really gets me is what gives them the right to give his stuff to THEIR kids before his own kid??? All they had to do was ask and I would have let them. Because what is a 10 year old going to do with dishes and stuff? But at least ask her first. I couldn't sleep last night I keep thinking about it and getting angrier. I can't even write her a note until I talk to my attorney. They last thing I need is them petitioning the court for visitation or something stupid like that.

from xnavygrrl :
I'm living in a nightmare. It sucks.
from kellbelle :
One that I'm very interested in was an explorer and fur trader who mapped out a lot of things ... his surname is Leduc. We have a neighbor named Leduc and he never knew it was a French/Canadian name. LOL
from kellbelle :
My ancestors were Canadians. I have nothing against them. :)
from kellbelle :
I applied for several positions in Mississauga and had plenty of offers, but my ex wouldn't let me move to Canada with my daughter. It's probably for the best as I married the sweetest guy in the world here in the States :)
from kellbelle :
I've been meaning to ask you... where in Toronto do you live? Even though I live in Texas, I used to date a guy in Scarbrough. :)
from kellbelle :
Hehe My home town is Beaver Dam. I doubt any wars were fought there though. LOL Glad you enjoyed the movie. Yes I cried, too and was REALLY surprised! It will be interesting to see it come back as a TV show with the movie the way it was, don't you agree?
from kellbelle :
Just got back from seeing Serenity. If you are a fan of the show, you will love it.
from kellbelle :
Hey there :) I'm back at Dland and catching up with everyone. I was pleased to see your new template. My hubby and I are big fans of Firefly (we bought the complete collection on DVD) and are going to see Serenity tomorrow afternoon! Have you seen it yet?
from xnavygrrl :
I know you are going through a lot right now. Just so you know, I care! :)
from xnavygrrl :
you and I have something in common. The way we were as teenagers. Watching the home videos I was horrified and yet I wanted to go into the tv to hug that girl and tell her life would turn out okay someday. It's strange. My daughter said I was the weirdest thing she'd ever seen. :( That sort of echoes the sentiment of the adults in my life as a teenager. Strange. I was just being me, you know. The me that I was at that time.
from hardrain :
It was way past time I updated my friends list. Half the diaries on there weren't updating any more, and there were a couple of diaries I was reading but hadn't added. What's sad is every one of those stupid people with the vets things I listed have happened to me or the vet I work with. Granted, I may have exaggerated a couple, but they are all based on actual experience. Sometimes, I just lose faith in humans :)
from theflyingrat :
I have been meaning to leave this note for AGES. In regard to the comment you left about Pinky & the Brain. I was looking at old pictures of my son and doing the diaryland thing at the same time. I happened to read your comment just as I opened a picture of Riley called "brain" because he's rubbing his hands together and he reminded me so much of when he'd say that about taking over the world. So that was just a weird coincidence and I hope it made sense. Haha. ♥
from beckers-j :
Yes, I can see how the produce section at the supermarket could be much like a cornfield. :) Thanks for reading all 101 of my things.
from thirdeye7601 :
Aww, don't feel bad sweetie. I didn't work out at all last week, until Friday. Ha! Mon-Thurs, I was making these stupid excuses as to why I couldn't go to the gym, then finally I do, and to my fear I had gained three pounds! Now, I have to lose those three pounds, plus another eight just to stay on my track. According to FitDay.com journal. Anyway, you deserved all the fun with your kids!! Can't wait to see pics! :)
from ilmomof3 :
I did indeed miss an < /s > tag, but I fixed it. Still hated a lot of music, though.
from thirdeye7601 :
Well, I'll tell you who I am because you're probably wondering. I clicked on your name where you had left a comment on another journal. Anyway, I think you handled this QUITE well. There is NO way I could have done that. Awesome. Also I love you site. I'm going to add you to my favs. I love all the neat stuff you have on there, and thanks for the link to fitday. :)
from somstar :
Dr Offices suck a lot anyways! two hours though? Thats a bit ridiculous, have you found the card yet?
from somstar :
Yeah You already have won! lol I just haven't posted it yet! :oP
from somstar :
I just noticed that you have the LONGEST profile I have ever read lol. I really hope your dad is okay!! Someone should call you soon *crosses fingers* Thanks for adding me, it's so kind...
from somstar :
It's nice to hear when things finally go right for someone, because too many times do things go wrong, so your entry brightened me up a little today <3
from theflyingrat :
Thank you. Your entry brought tears to my eyes. You're right. Feeling guilty isn't going to make my feelings go away. The world is unjust, life is unfair and we don't always get what we want. Just, thank you so much. ♥
from flicka :
just started reading you, so far interesting. Really, I hate that word "interesting." It's something a bullshit conselor would use after every question....bla, bla, bla. I've been up 4 days manic, and this is my height of "okay-ness", and tomorrow I'll hate the world again. It's already started actually. I liked your movies and bands in your profile. Take care.
from theflyingrat :
Pure happiness doesn't have to be something show stopping. Some of my happiest moments come after a long day when I'm just sitting and realising I got the house clean! Good luck with the search, though! ♥
from gofigure :
Holy Moly, girl. Sounds like your man woke up on the wrong side of the bed or something. I'm sorry he was so mean to you. I know this goes without saying, but you do realize you don't deserve that kind of treatment, right? (hug)
from bluemeany :
I wanted to add in response to your question (because your comment section told me I was being "too wordy") that my Article 15 dealie could potentially cause me a bit of trouble, but not too horribly much. Hopefully though, it'll all blow over.
from frogmom :
thank you for the birthday wishes!
from beckers-j :
Thanks for the comment. I would rather that people comment when they actually identify with me or want to let me know something rather than just paying lip service. I just find it difficult to believe that there are only six people out of the 38 who read me that ever have anything to say. Thanks for letting me know you're there. :)
from acaldwell :
kat, you ARE NOT a dumbass!! the story i wrote was made up! fake! it was just a gag~ i do it all the time~ thats what the daily drivel is all about, real news mixed in with fake news and udder stuff! dont be so hard on yourself! so sit back, and hava good laff!!! ♥
from gofigure :
Oh, I know. Teenagers are terrifying, aren't they? Complicating matters is that my man's girl isn't MINE - know what I mean? If it was my kid, I'd take it with a grain of salt. Maybe I need to adjust my attitude toward her attitude and try to think of her as my kid.
from xnavygrrl :
That's okay. It's nice to know you wanted to help. That's very sweet of you!
from xnavygrrl :
:) Thanks for the note. You're a doll!
from bluemeany :
Hey! Thank you so much for the warm-fuzzy comment. It made me smile -- at 7 a.m.! THAT is an accomplishment :)
from boxx9000 :
I think ADD is over diagnosed as well. I think we all just have different learning styles. I have only known ONE student who REALLY needed some type of medication to help him focus (function) he was a crack baby. I think his nervous system had been fried.
from beckers-j :
Here-here! Sometimes the tolerance preachers are just as bad as any other type of fanatic.
from razor-vixen :
Yep, I watched a lot of the show yesterday. Signed the online petitions. Let's hope that they actually CAN make a difference!
from frogmom :
thanks for the kinds words!
from supermom3604 :
Oh no, I'm not shutting DMIL out of my life. I'm just not putting up with her drama anymore. She's still welcome here, but she has to check her baggage at the door. I would never keep my kids from seeing her - she's their grandmother whether I like it or not.
from razor-vixen :
He also now thinks he knows everything about depression/anti-depressants, kids on ADD/ADHD drugs, and psychiatry, because he read a few studies. If I hadn't read all the shite he's been spouting about this, I'd think the way he thinks Katie is so great is actually cute.
from kellbelle :
Mine is definitely fear of failure. I guess that's why I'm so excited about going back to school. It's scary, but this time I will finish. And I promise the dreams will stop in a day or so :) Only 2 more days until the wedding. It's just stress and this too shall pass. :)
from kellbelle :
Lack of following through has nothing to do with your level of committment. I think it's really just a fear of failure. I am the same way... I used to think I was just ADD! LOL
from kellbelle :
Thank you so much for your kind words. Please keep my little girl in your thoughts and prayers.
from kellbelle :
Gah! i'm such a dork LOL I was one off on my buddy list :) sorry!!
from kellbelle :
I am such a schmuck! I can't find your password :(
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks for the note! I'm glad I found your diary too... It sounds like you have your hands full with your kids! It seems like daily life would be very challenging for you, but also that you're up for it. You can handle it. Men couldn't do what we do everyday, just to run our houses! I mean they could, but sometimes they are such big babies and they want a pat on the back for the littlest things!
from xnavygrrl :
How the hell do we cope with this crap our daughters are dealing with at school? I'm almost in tears over this. My daughter is sweet and kind and generous, not to mention cute, and they are mercilious with her!
from eggsaucted :
Thank you! You're sweet!
from eggsaucted :
Happy Belated Mother's Day to you too! And thanks for the compliment on her highness.
from eggsaucted :
Thanks for listing me as a favourite.
from frogmom :
thank you for the comment you left!
from frogmom :
Oh my god that whole high school thing is sick!!
from hissandtell :
Ha - your approach to housework sounds remarkably like mine. I float from one unfinished task to another until I get really bored and dissatisfied with everything, and then I go and lie on the sofa with pillows over my head until I'm sufficiently recovered to wander off into the garden with some coffee. And then I repeat it the next morning. Love, R xxx
from thecrankyone :
I'm sorry if I haven't left a note here sooner. I have been very remiss in keeping up my diaryrings. I wanted to say welcome to the Tuff2Love Kids diaryring.. My son too, is very independant even though he is only going to be 12 in June, somedays he acts like he going on 15
from pashiesplace :
Ahhhh sounds like my couch. I always drift off if I dare to even half lay down. Getting up to go to the bathroom seems like a chore when I'm crashed there.
from theflyingrat :
Thanks for the comment in my dairy, I appreciate the kind words.
from ilmomof3 :
I hear you on the computer = distraction thing. Someone asked the other day if I had any addictions and I had to hesitate...
from hissandtell :
Loved your Michael Jackson rant. What amuses me about this is how his rabid fans are so quick to defend him, making all sorts of declarations of his innocence and victimisation based on, um, the fact that he makes records and gives performances, I guess. Yes, I think the parent should be horsewhipped, but I can't understand why his supporters who've never met him can think that possessing fame and wealth automatically precludes engagement in criminal and/or suspicious behaviour. As you say, "Why is it so unbelievable he could have done this?" You know, Ted Bundy's mother believed him innocent until the very moment he confessed. I always have to wonder why anyone would bother to be so vocal in defending someone when they really haven't a clue about them. Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Hi - I clicked on you from awittykitty's profile, am enjoying the read and will be back for more. Love, R xxx

Love the diaper story! lol! soooo cute!
from sarahsundae :
Thanks for joining the Velvet Revolver ring and the Scott Weiland ring.
from thecrankyone :
HI! I just wanted to say Welcome to the tuf2lovekids diaryring. I've just started reading your diary, but so far I find it very intersting. I too tend to blame my self for all of my son's issues, even though in my head I know I am not responsible for all of it.
from pischina :
Kat, I wish you - more than anyone - a very very Happy New Year and a much better 2005. And you are not a bad mom - remember when I had to do my son's science project for him? Because we both forgot the due date? You are wonderful. I wish I could give you a big hug sometimes. I am going to send all my prayers to you this week. Here's hoping for a year of wonderful happy entries!
from omnipre5ence :
The details..?
from cosmicrayola :
I have so much catching up to do on ER it isn't funny. I love my Friday night TV too. Third watch and Joan of Arcadia. We love that too.
from babytales :
Woo Hoo!! Looking forward to seeing your photos :)
from pandionna :
My God, Kat. What a letter. I hope at some point you are able to work things out with her. I know: How hypocritical of me to say that when I won't talk to my own father, but it sounds as though you still love her. How torn you must have felt. When parents split, it's so hard, and it's even worse when they try to pull their kids into it. Mine did, and my mother tried to get through to me about what a con-man my father was. It wasn't until about eight months before she died that I realized what was happening, when I saw his behavior. We talked, and I was glad for the chance to tell her that I understood her. Maybe you don't understand everything your mom is doing, or how she's behaving, but if there's anything at all that you do understand about her, I hope you get the chance to tell her. Sorry for the book in your notes. Your letter really touched me. Hugs!
from cosmicrayola :
Possible solution? Have her hubby come get you the night before her test and stay at her house. The spend the next night too. She has someone to watch her kids and you get to spend a day with her and catch up on things. I understand how you feel about your dog, bu I have to side with your friend on this one. When my kids were little, it didn't matter how irrational my fears were about their safety. They were real fears to me and I wouldn't let my kids near a dog that I was worried about either. You may know your dog is safe, but if she isn't comfortable then so be it. Go and have a nice visit.
from alwaysange :
Happy Birthday. I came by way of cosmicrayola! You're a Taurus like me!
from chaosdaily :
happy birthday!!!
from inkdragon :
Zipped over from Cosmicrayola to wish you a very, very happy birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day.
from cosmicrayola :
Somehow I missed your update until today (Monday). Yippee! You can live without the gallbladder and you sure as hell can live without the cyst. And the other problem is fixable. I am so glad! I haven't had my gall bladder out, but from my sister, neice and two friends, I would say it is one of the less serious surgeries. I'm sure you will breeze through. Are they removing the cyst at the same time? I hope you are feeling at least a little better now that you know ther results.
from cosmicrayola :
Damn! I am biting my nails waiting for your results. I can't imagine how it is for you! I am still sending "good health" vibes to you. You are in my prayers and my thoughts.
from cosmicrayola :
Here's something to take your mind off your troubles for a bit. Your previous and next links are messed up. If you click on them you get to someone elses diary. Now how did you manage to do that? Lol.
from cosmicrayola :
I'll be waiting for your update tomorrow. I will say prayers tonight.
from cosmicrayola :
Hope they take the gall bladder out! THen he won't have to suffer anymore. I'm wishing him wellness.
from lovely-freak :
thanks for the comment on my entry about the implants... i agree with you wholeheartedly! thanks!
from cosmicrayola :
Love the new layout!!
from witcheepoo :
Hey there!! Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I don't know what it is, I just haven't felt inspired lately. Believe me my life is far from exciting and glamourous. Good to know that I'm missed though. I promise I'll find something to write about very soon.
from rumblelizard :
Hey there, thanks for the note! Rant on, girlcat.
from herkinerf :
Hey there. Thanks for the note and suggestion. I think the only way to get some satisfaction is to get more snotty with the chatterboxes. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks for reading! ~Gracie
from mysticwhisp :
Sorry to hear you are experiencing the side effects from the drugs but hope that they do help you. I got lyme disease this summer and man was that rough. I hate taking meds and had to go through several different antibiotics before we found one that worked and I had to take pain meds for the first time in my life. Didn't even need them for giving birth but this Lyme Disease knocked my on my ass. Sorry to ramble. Just wanted to say that I hope all goest well with the meds and I enjoyed reading your diary. Spirit
from witcheepoo :
Jake says thanks so much for all of the compliments!! He does have very kissable cheeks!!
from witcheepoo :
Thanks for the words of encouragement! I still haven't smoked!! Woo-Hoo!! Three days!!
from witcheepoo :
Thanks for the note. I agree.. I don't think we will ever have "Mommy time" again. Well... maybe when we're 80 years old. I feel your pain with the working nights thing. Fortunetly I only have to work a few hours a night, but I still hate it. I'd much rather be home reading a book or relaxing. Hang in there sister!!
from marn :
Oh dear. Nothing worse than cranky children. The good thing is that they tend to get better faster than we do ... fingers crossed the little rascal gets through it quickly.
from marn :
I sympathize with you. I felt that way Sunday night. Just sneeze all over someone you love; there's great comfort in knowing that you're "sharing". Tee hee.

THanks for becoming a member of addict2sims diaryring.

All I know is that back when I wished for a more exciting life I had no idea that mundanity was infinately preferable to perpetually bailing out the boat and fighting off all these cussed ninjas.

Your entry today ( well my today 29/08/03 ) maed tears prick in my eyes, the way you love your children so much, I hope I get the chance to be a mother

from astro-vamps :
Hey I was just surfing through diaryland and I came across your diary. I don't know what it is about your diary that I like so much but I just do hehe. well....bye.
from waterfall2 :
I feel the same. Well actully my husband told me once I start working he would help around the house. WEll.. I started working.. parttime.. but.. my day started at 6:30 and I didn't come home tell 3..And he doesn't concider this fulltime work.. and because I sit at a desk.. he says my job is easy.. and I don't need help with the house. Sooo there is no diffrence what so ever if I work .. or I don't.. its the same bullshit every day.. cleaning and cleaning and cleaning.. I"m not working now. and the only diffrence is.. I can update my diary better. ohh .. also I don't have anymore of "MY OWN MONEY" sooo if I want to buy anything..I have to give a damn explanation why..its awful.. cause I"m used to just buying what I want for anyreason I want. I hate not having my own money! Its.. demeaning. I dont know..this is kinda a dumb note.. sorry about that lol. Waterfall2
