hello, to all for those who know of me and hello to some of the newer members. i know i havent been on here in a while but i guess i'll fill you guys in on whats been going on in my life. so here goes'

At work, i have been promoted at my job at the steel plant from shipping to a machine shop operator, pretty much i machine rings and discs now some of the things i been doing looks alot like rotors but its steel not iron, so ive been focusing on doing my best at not messing up, mind you the better i do the more $$ i bring in.
At home, just been doing ma best to be a good bf, and father i have a plan on when i will pop the question but it wont be for another 2 years on her 30th birthday my oldest birthday is today, he made honor roll and will be going to the 3rd grade. at the same time he has been a beast at soccer. My youngest is 2 and having a bit of trouble communicating verbally but his attitude and expressions make up for it lol
Ive had a standpoint with jack there is a issue with the windshield wiper....it dont work and i believe its an electrical issue in which is deff not my strong point so being as though this is a major issue i went out and just bought me an 08 tahoe LT ive always wanted one and i know i needed something bigger for the family

well sorry for the long story hope to hear from you guys

I have a 3-year-old grandson that has this issue as well. About a year ago, he started speech therapy. Before that, he would hardly even attempt to communicate verbally. Now, he won't shut up, but he has trouble pronouncing things correctly. It's like he can't get his tongue to do what he needs to speak correctly. He is improving, it's just a slow process... He also has no issue with expressions or attitude...

My nephew started speech therapy at 3 years old as well. Someone would come to the house and play with him on a semi-regular basis (I think 2 days a week?). It helped very quickly, and now he's 7 and doing great!

Hi George congrats on everything, and some kids just start speaking later than others. I have a Granddaughter that was that way. She's 10 now and fine. Don't give up on Jack.
Windshield wipers shouldn't be that hard. See if you power to the wiper motor and go from there.

Hi George congrats on your promotion for sure!!
My Granddaughter had a little problem with that as well now she doesn't shut up a 3.5 she is ready for pre-school. Keep up the Positive encouraging and that will help for sure.

This was very encouraging. Thanks for posting! I was worrying myself about this a couple of days ago, thinking he might not be able to catch up before time to start going to school.
