Leelo Lags

The way we think about Leelo and his progress doesn't really conform to chronological schedules. I know that. Still, it was an unpleasant shock to get a letter from his pediatrician informing us that, since Leelo is eligible for Kindergarten in the Fall, we should be sure to schedule his pre-Kindergarten wellness exam a.s.a.p.

Kindergarten? In the Fall? Right. That's where he would be if he was neurotypical. Sigh.

In the meantime, since he's a November baby anyhow, we're keeping him a year back, and hoping to see a lot of progress in the next 15 months, until the real Kindergarten readiness evaluations take place. And I'll get my small doses of cheer when he does things like yelling at La-La the teletubby on screen, telling her to stop yammering on about those fucking rabbits. "It's a bunny!" he shouts, indignantly.
