Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day

It is funny…I am not sure when it happened really. The moment that my mom became one of my best friends. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t ever remember not liking my mom – even during my bratty challenging junior high years :) She has always been there for me. I remember her chaperoning many […]

Coloring eggs was a bit more fun this year ;)

Coloring eggs was a bit more fun this year ;)

It is that time of year – to get out all of the egg decorating kits. This year we thought it would be a little more fun for Brooklyn to have a few friends over to decorate eggs (I think we were right!) Thank goodness my mom hits the clearance bins each year – we […]

The Start of a New Chapter

The Start of a New Chapter

Today was Boston’s last day of preschool. Why? Because ABA at Hopebridge starts on Monday morning.  I have so many emotions going on right now. I am so sad because Boston LOVES preschool – here are a couple of photos of him on the way to school this morning. LOVES IT. Three more reasons I […]

“I broke her”: ok Rett broke her, I’m trying to mend her

(*thank you my friend Beth for the title change suggestion) I did a quick post on facebook about Brookie’s broken tibia and wanted to be able to explain more of what happened.

Boston had an AMAZING OT session at Hopebridge today. We started the session by walking to the park for some time in the swings. We all know Boston LOVES  to swing!! What you might not know is when he swings – the sensory input he receives is amazing, and he works so much harder the […]

If only we could clone her...

If only we could clone her…

I feel so incredibly blessed to live within driving distance of Susan Norwell. For those of you not familiar with her, she is truly an angel in the Rett Syndrome Community. In her own words she states, “My company, Focused Learning Solutions, is dedicated to learning for children with significant disabilities.  Its primary focus is […]

I probably should have started that baby book...

I probably should have started that baby book…

I am probably one of the only moms that do not have a baby book….for EITHER child. Don’t get me wrong, I have memories and pictures and oodles of blog posts but no baby book. Maybe that is not so uncommon in the special needs world? I mean, who really wants to track milestones when […]
