Life as a mom who has her hands full

Late Talking Boys

In 2007, the author of Life with Children wrote this great article. He discusses many of the things I went through with my son, Aidan. At 3 1/2 he was still echoing phrases we were saying instead of carrying on a conversation. We had him tested at the preschool’s suggestion and everything came back fine. After many months of sleepless nights, we calmed down and I began to trust in my maternal instincts. All signs pointed to the fact that he was simply immature and a boy…now he is 5 years old and his language delay is a thing of the past. He doesn’t carry on a conversation as well as some kids, but most days I wonder why I ever worried in the first place. Great article..there are more of us moms out there than I ever thought!!!

    I am going through the exact same thing now. My happy and loving 3 year 3 months old boy is delayed in speech. He says a few words and says three or four sentences, but that is about it. We had him evaluated and he goes to speech twice a week. I am so worried out of my mind about him. Can you let me know when your son began talking?
