    Maybe I just didn't notice it prior to Chorus (if this type of thread existed), but it's been real fun following the older AP.Net users grow older and have kids.

    The forecast for Halloween went from like 48 degrees to 60...but there is a '100%' chance of rain.

    I can't remember the last time we had comfortable weather for Halloween in Northeast Ohio.

    As I'm still catching up on all things internet, my wife and I had our first, Liam, last month on 9/25. It's crazy to me that this little guy is a month old now...

    I am going to freeze this Halloween.

    I miss Arizona Halloween. It was warm. I felt a great sense of community because everyone was out on their porch chatting and handing out candy.

    Has anybody ever done speech therapy for their kid(s)?

    How old? If this for the younger one? We thought about it when ours was around 3, but now that he's 4, I'm glad we didn't. He was definitely a slow learner when it came to talking, but he's so much better now. It's weird, sometimes he says things adults say and I look at him like 'what the hell, who are you?'

    I have not personally, but my older sister did with her youngest. She was 5-6 when they started it, I believe.

    I know I've brought this up before, but my son continues to wet the bed at kind of an alarming pace. He turned 5 about two months ago. He's been potty trained during the day for more than 2 1/2 years. He was wearing night time pull ups for a few years and a few months ago we stopped because he was getting a lot better at staying dry throughout the night...all of a sudden, the past 3-4 weeks, he's pretty much peeing every night again...to the point where we had to get pull ups again (much to his chagrin) because we got so tired of doing laundry every day.

    We brought it up to his pediatrician in the past year or so (although not in a while) and she said it's fine to continue on with pull-ups but everything I google says 5 and after is the age where parents should start to seek medical advice for this kind of stuff.

    I don't think it's a bladder issue, because during the day...he hardly pees at all. We make him pee before bed every night and he stops drinking a good hour before bed. Not sure what else to do.

    Had he told you anything about why he doesn't get up to go potty?

    My oldest, just turned 4 in September.

    His issue isn't speaking, he says alot of words and fairly complex sentences like you describe. The issue is in being understood and pronunciation. My wife and I obviously have a pretty good grasp of what he's saying and can interpret but most others can't always tell what he's trying to say and there's frustration on his part. Went to get an evaluation and got it back yesterday and it was as expected. Not severely but below average regardless

    Did it work for them? How long did she have to go?

    We tell him every night that if he has to go to the bathroom to get up and go. I think he's sleeping right through it. He's a very deep sleeper. We even leave a night light on in the hallway and the bathroom. We've also told him that if he's scared to get up by himself to call out for us and we'll go get him.

    She went for 2+ years, I believe. And yes, made a HUGE difference. She spoke like a toddler well past that period. I remember my son seeming more advanced. With the therapy, there were huge improvements. It did take time obviously, but I remain a believer.

    Good to know. Like I said he had a great vocabulary and says things in a very adult way that I get shocked by, he just needs help pronouncing things properly that my the and I just can't seem to connect with him.

    My older daughter is 4 and is going through this exact same thing. There are certain sounds she has trouble pronouncing and people that don't know her have a hard time understanding what she's saying (her name being the biggest thing) and we notice it gets her frustrated. We started in the spring doing a half hour session once a week for 12 weeks and even after that we noticed improvement. We just went today for her full evaluation and are waiting to hear back on the report and what type of program she will be going to.

    Does your son go to preschool? Does the preschool your child goes to have a speech therapist on hand? I know my son's preschool has speech therapists on hand throughout the day who work with the kids 1 on 1 who need it.
