Medications, Speech Therapists & First Day of School

Post to Twitter .

First day of school was two weeks ago. How has it been two weeks already?!


I’ve been running a thousand different directions doing a million things. Owen had an eye appointment last week and a 3 year check up today.

His eyes are status quo. The doctor said they are looking good and are aligned like they should be, but he is suggesting Owen stay in glasses for now. I’m fine with it. After all, he is so darn handsome in those glasses.


His doctor appointment today was a little different than expected. It wasn’t anything shocking and he didn’t need shots, but he ended up coming home with several prescriptions and a referral to a speech therapist. She thinks he has allergies and reflux (still) so he is taking a nasal spray nightly and is on a reflux medicine twice daily.

He is also not enunciating the first letter of words like she

would like him to be doing. He speaks in full conversations and can express himself great, but his speech is a little difficult to understand. For instance, instead of Thomas he will say Bomas. And when he changes the first letter of words throughout a sentence it can be hard to follow. Just ask grandma…. haha! The common line at the cabin this summer was “Ryan, help me out here. What does your brother want?” and of course Ryan knew exactly what Owen was saying. Mommy and Ryan seem to be the only ones who speak “Owen” language. Even daddy struggles from time to time.

But like Dr. Beckford said, a speech therapist isn’t going to hurt so let’s just see what they say and what they suggest. So we’re doing it. I’m making an appointment and we’ll see what happens.

I feel our calendar getting busier and busier. Oh, and I just signed them up for swim lessons twice a week during the dinner hour. Logistically I have no idea how I’m going to work it out with my commute those days. I feel my shoulders tensing as I think about it. But it’ll all be fine. I know it will all work out somehow. And they will love their swim lessons.

  1. I totally support you going for the evaluation of speech for both boys. I also support getting speech outside of school, as being pulled from class (while helpful to their after-school schedule) is usually an option based on the budget of the school district,, it does not always support the kid in the easiest most positive way, where as after school speech classes can be fun and active and they can feel empowered instead of excluded 🙂

  2. Awww he is indeed handsome in those glasses. Sounds very busy indeed. It sure doesn’t hurt to get him extra help now. My oldest had some speech issues but we all thought she’d outgrow it. Unfortunately what happened is that some of her “cute” phrases turned into habits which was affecting her in school. It took over a year and a lot of frustration to break some of those bad habits (like fing instead of thing). So it’s good to look at it now, just in case. You can be sure we’re more aware with our youngest child.

      I agree. We are dealing with some of the same things with our oldest. We inquired about speech therapy for him and was told he would outgrow it. He’s now turning 5 and still has some of the same speech issues.

  3. Awwwww—Our hearts are totally goners at the mere sight of that cute little face and those cute little glasses—he doesn’t need to say a word!

  4. We’re doing dinner hour swim lessons too. Thankfully it’s only for 3 weeks else I think it’d be too much for Max. They’ll be swimming laps next year!

  5. I have to say- little kids in glasses melt me. I love it- they are SO stinking adorable. And your right, taking him to see a speech therapist isn’t a big deal and it can only help. Because I bet he gets frustrated when people can’t understand him too, so over time that might hurt his self confidence. At least that’s what happened to my brother when he was younger, and it took years for him to feel comfortable talking in front of people even though his speech ended up being OK. So better to fix it now than later! 🙂

I would LOVE to hear from you!
