At this point in time I am starting to think that maybe we should stick it out with the mainstream and not place her into day treatment and this is a

My support system has sure been adding great info to my decision. There is only one point to clear up and that is the fact that the Day Treatment program is only for 6--7--8 year olds.They have another class for 3-5 year olds. And I am not exactly sure that we would be able to "Get In" again in the future. There are only 8 children accepted at a time and these children are in the program for 18-24 months so.......I suspect if we decided to pass that would be the end of this as an option.

We are getting dressed and ready to go see the Attachment Therapist and I am going to ask her again what her thoughts are.

On October 9---I will be doing an all day training for Girls Scouts. There are 16 1st grade girls and the troop needs a leader and 2 co-leaders so I signed up to be one of the Co-Leaders......DH said he knew I would get sucked in---and I said I knew I would too..... and so here we go.... I think Makala will Like Girl Scouts....and it really is a great Mother-Daughter activity.

Anyway--It looks as if we are leaning to the NOT going to day treatment plan. The past several days I have told Makala that she is still too little to go to the OTHER Col-de-sac's and play but that it is fine if other kids want to come and play here in ours. And there have been heards of kids playing with Makala!!!??? It is kind of winding her up---but it is good to see her play with the other children.
