We now interupt this blog for real life

Last night Skylee had to speak at her schools program. I was so proud and I thought Shawn was going to burst open and a rainbow would shine out of his chest. The reason this is such a BIG ASS DEAL for us........until second grade this kid couldn't speak and be understood. She had such bad speech problems that no one outside of our family could understand a thing she said but there she was last night, clear as a bell!!
Unless you have a child with a speech impediment you have no idea how monumental this was for us as parents. Here is a girl that couldn't say the word cup standing up there speaking as if she has been doing it well her whole life. Yep, very proud Mommy!!

PS. I decided when they were in kindergarten that Sky would grow up and marry the little dude in the upper left hand corner wearing the glasses. How cute is he??

I am so happy for her and you. It is amazing what kids can overcome.

Bravo! Happy she overcame this.

Very proud mommy = good mommy!

My nephew, Elliott, had speech problems so I get the idea - even thought I'm not his mother.

I'm so glad she's doing so well.
BTW she looks like her mommy!

Brought tears to my eyes, as a parent I understand the reference to the rainbow bursting out of your chest. I am so happy for you that this challenge for her has been overcome! xoxo

Adorable photos. I have a student with a significant speech issue - it is amazing when he is making progress.
You must have been so thrilled to see her up there.

I go all rainbow-chesty any time my kids do anything, in public or otherwise for the most part, so I can only imagine how proud x 5,938,992,502 you must be! Well done to you all.
