A Little Something About Little Leo

When it comes to writing a blog post some days I sit here at the keyboard and my fingers just dance across the keys and what comes out is a blog post, I often find this is the best way to write often without giving much thought to what words are being created.

I was up early again this morning we had to take Little Leo to an appointment over at Kaleidoscope this one was a long appointment it was an assessment to see if he is at the right place in way of development and is some ways it was like an IQ test for little kids. I would like to say it all went smoothly but that would be a lie as for most of the time he would say things like my memory isn't working or I have had enough and it's time to go home and he would run out of the room and his mum would have to chase him and bring him back.

I of course went with Jessica and Leo but I had to leave before the appointment was over as I was going with mum to the nursing home to see my nan. I was under the impression that Jessica was annoyed with me for leaving but See didn't go and see nan yesterday as it was Anzac Day and we thought it may be difficult to get somewhere to park at the nursing home so we went today instead.

Jessica said that after I left they started asking her medical questions and of course she couldn't really answer them but she did know that I am diabetic and that she has a cousin that has epilepsy but forgot to mention that he also has ODD. Of course they couldn't have asked these questions while I was there.
We have to go back to get the results of toady's investigation but at this stage Jessica hasn't told me when that will be, also because it was nearly midday by the time they left she didn't bother taking him to day care today.


  1. Taking kiddos to the doctor is tough. They wiggle and run around and can't wait to get out of there.

    Your grandson is darling! :)

  2. He's a cutie, he is, with those little dimples and sparkling eyes. I hope the results go well~

  3. What a cutie pie!! I hope the results are just fine, Jo-Anne. Hugs!

  4. He is such a doll! Can't wait until I have grandkids!

  5. Little Leo does look gorgeous, and I love the little grandma quotes! I hope the results are good when they come back. He looks as bright as a button to me!!

  6. Leo is adorable, I can imagine how much fun you have together! It is wise that you are having everything tested now, so that he can be as prepared as possible when school years arrive. All children are special and all have their own needs. Love is the best tonic of all! :-)

  7. What a cute little face! Those tests can be a bit daunting but if he does need a bit of help better now than later.
    Blessings, Joanne

  8. I hope you all find something useful from that doctor visit!

  9. What a cutie!! I hope the results are just fine, Hugs!

  10. Crystal......Yes he is a darling handful and we love him to bits.....

    Shelly.......You said it he is a cutie and I we love him, I hope we don't have to wait to long for the results......

    Elsie.......Me to I just hope we don't have to wait to long for the results..

    Crack the Whip.....Yes grandchildren are such a blessing

    Diane....He is bright and I think he did well with the testing but will have to wait till we get the results

    Josie......Yes I also think it is better have these things looked at now before he starts school, he is very much a papa's boy but at times he wants no one but nanna

    Joanne......yeah I do love that photo of him and yes if he needs help I want to know sooner rather then later

    Green Girl......Me too some times we feel like we have all these appointments and get no way

    Becca......Yes I do to but have to wait till we get the results although I think he did well

  11. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Yes, as others said your little Leo is REALLY lovely and adorable; that is how I feel for him every time I saw him in your blog♡♡♡
    Well, it must be a long waiting period to know the result for your family. I love the quote as well, I remember how I was cared by my grandmom, even though we were not living close.

    Love you always, xoxo Miyako*
