An Evaluation

My little guy has an appointment on Tuesday with our school district to have his speech evaluated. James is 4 and to me he speaks just fine. However, several family members and friends have urged us 
to have him tested. So tested he will be.

I'd say 98% of the time, Chris and I understand James completely. However, sometimes he mumbles, talks too fast or too quietly. Sometimes he gets confused and forgets what word he is trying to say. As parents, we don't want to think that anything is wrong with our son. We can understand him just fine and we constantly work with him to speak louder, clearer, and without mumbling. We decided to move forward with the evaluation anyway. 

If it is found that his speech needs improvement he will enter into a weekly program for the remainder of the year and then next year he will be eligible to attend Pre K. This makes me very happy. Our boy needs interaction with other kiddos and it would do him some good to not be stuck up my skirt all the time. He is definitely a momma's boy. 

All in all, we of course want what is best for him. I'm a little nervous about his evaluation and just worried about my boy in general. 

If you've been through this with your kiddo I would love your input!
