10 Things I’ve Learned From My Child {With Special Needs}

When I first read today’s guest post, I cried. This post is an absolutely beautiful piece written by Sandy, a mother of an even more beautiful daughter named Adeline. Adeline has long blond hair and an engaging smile. Adeline also happens to have Down syndrome. When I first found Sandy’s blog, I immediately fell in…

Holy Cow – 10 weeks to go?

What I want to know is how, exactly, I got to be so pregnant. Of course, I think it snuck up on me mostly because of the holidays. I’ve definitely been feeling pregnant, and it’s hard to ignore the huge movement and rolling and pushing that’s going on in my belly these days, but in…

Introducing…

Well, I don’t really know who I’m introducing, but he or she is the reason for my being so quiet on here. We have all been settling into our new routine with the start of school, but a large part of that has been me settling into the new routine with this little interloper. Hi,…

Danny’s World

I’m not sure where the shift started, but over the past few months, I’ve moved from fearing Danny’s future to embracing it. Maybe he will always need support. Maybe he will not be able to do all the things we hope for our children. But he’s just such an incredible kid that I can’t help…

Make A Wish

Yesterday, we had our Wish Presentation… The big reveal.  Up to this point, all we knew was the dates and that we would be at Disneyland.  The big reveal was where we got the details, the itinerary. We arrived at Five Guys Burgers and Fries at 5 PM to find a table covered in a…

Danny and the iPod – Learning Through Play

Since the day Danny got his hands on my iPod (aka, the day I finally gave in), Danny has adored the thing. Now, this is not overly strange in any way… Both of my kids are very technologically inclined, and honestly, they both love to play on it. The thing that makes it worth noting…

Moog Workshop Recap

I have to say, after spending 4 days at the Moog Center, the workshop was everything and nothing like I expected it to be. It was certainly a well spent and worthwhile 4 days for the most part, and I’d highly recommend the workshop to anyone who is receiving limited services for their oral-deaf child…

Busy Week

I love Spring. Love It. This year, we are enjoying the sunshine. Ava hasn’t had a real chance to play outside and enjoy the outdoors, so this year I hope to introduce her to nature. I don’t care how much equipment we have to lug around with us – Ava will feel the breeze on…

Things are a changin’

I’m annoyed today.  I don’t think some people realize how difficult it is to get GI, Genetics, ENT,  a nutritionist and a speech pathology at the same appointment, at the same time.  It takes a while.  This was to be a very important appt.  We’ve gotten so much snow the last 48 yrs that the roads…
