Just in time for her IEP

As Dariya's IEP is next week I have been thinking about what strengths and weaknesses she has and what goals we would like addressed at school.   I was thrilled (she says sarcastically) that she has chosen instead of napping to show off her fine motor skills.  For weeks I have gone in and found her asleep with her shirt off.  But, this week when I walked in I found this....

My chunky little butterball buck naked!

I dressed her but, she undressed herself 3 times.  After two hours of no napping and dressing games I gave up.  I think that skill is mastered. CHECK!

Then I began to think of vocational goals for her...You know it is never too early to start thinking about that transitioning.  So we have decided that since anytime Dariya sees a hairbrush she goes into beauty shop mode.  Complete with a heavy hand.  Don't even try to move before she is done.  She also includes with her services some great babble about how she can make you look beautiful in 3 easy steps. 
She usually comes to brush my hair but, this week she held down talked Alayna into being her victim.  
Maybe we could include some post school esthetician training in her preschool IEP.  Or maybe just when to STOP when your client says all done.
What do you think Juanita? =)


On a serious note, Dariya is having ear tubes placed and an adenoidectomy on Friday morning. We appreciate all prayers for a great surgery and uneventful recovery.  Thanks.

My oldest had his adenoids out and tubes put in a year and a half ago. It went well, the recovery was almost non-existant, and he's only had one ear infection since then (last week). I hope Dariya's goes as well!

Hmmm, I don't like to point fingers but do you think a certain LC might be giving Dariya some pointers on getting undressed, hehehe

Sending prayers for the surgery!

Such a beauty, she will make a great beauty girl! Hope her surgery is quick and easy! Addy hasn't even tried to take her clothes off but she tries like the dickens to get them on :)

=) Dariya has got the makings of a fine hair stylist!
Prayers for a quick and uneventful surgery tomorrow!

Becca said...

Yes!!!! Samantha totally knows that "beauty-shop-mode" too! It's hilarious. Maybe our girls can go into business together one day!

Good luck tomorrow - hope all goes smoothly!

Praying for an uneventful, successful surgery and a quick recovery for Dariya. We were pleasantly surprised with how quickly Wesley recovered from his.

And I love her talents with hair-styling. Although I'm amazed you caught Alayna sitting still and not squirming to get away as fast as possible. :-)

Aaron had this done in September. He woke up in a very nasty mood and complained of his "mouth being broken" for a day or so and was back to himself. Surgery was less than 30 minutes long. Praying all goes well!!!!
