Back to normal programming...

After a pediatric ophthalmologist appointment, followed a few days later by an appointment with a pediatrician at our local hospital, the diagnosis is...............a simple motor tic. 

Nothing to be concerned about, don't bring attention to it, should disappear and/or morph into something else by about 6 weeks - 3 months.

So, we move on.
 I think this is just one more in a series of odd little things he does, some of which can also be classified as simple motor tics, albeit, less obvious ones.


THIS odd thing however is not a tic, although given that the day was about 12C, that is odd enough for me.







Life goes on as normal. School holidays coming up, eek!

So good to hear!

Put salt dough on your list for holidays - we made t-rex teeth and wore them on necklaces!

So glad to hear that was nothing worse. I have been around children, including my grand daughter, who have had a similar type of action. I had done a little research,and found, in many cases, it was simply a case of nerves. When a child is in an uncomfortable situation, or has a problem they are worrying about, it appears. Sometimes you can figure out what the uncomfortable situation is, and help them to resolve it, and then sometimes, it clears up on it own. At least this has been my experience.

Phew!

.... and Yay! I love the red feet - I remember doing that to my dog Tess in Darwin, trying to put her paws into blue paint and then run over some Christmas cards as her signature. Well, being a rather excitable puppy she ran everywhere *except* the Christmas cards, so the house was covered in blue paw prints for a few hours.

And YAY to you too, for being such a creative and willing Mum for your boys to have so much fun.

Lottie, we made salt dough two days ago, but I'm loving the T-rex teeth idea!

Sawn, thanks for your insights over the last few posts, you were much closer to the reason than I was, it seems. Thing is, I'm not sure it's related to one thing, possibly he's a little high strung and a bit of a perfectionist, so maybe this translates to anxiety/nerves overall? He will do it when his mind is 'at rest' or somewhat dis-engaged....watching tv, sitting on the mat at pre-school, but if he is actively engaged in something, it is nowhere to be seen. I came across a wahm tonight who makes amber necklaces and a version for adhd/autistic kids, and seems some stones can help with anxiety, calming the mind and all sorts of other things. Depends what you believe in of course :P but he likes his bling, so maybe I'll get one made for him. Maybe it will help, or maybe the placebo effect will kick in!

Thanks Kath, our driveway certainly has it's own trail of red footprints now, waiting for a good rain before our new neighbours move in.....we share a driveway...

Hey Lou, keeping up with the kids is a full time job hey?!
