Half Full and Happy

Today I was waiting. Waiting impatiently for Grey to pee. Bored. Sick of the Bathroom. So much waiting. Always waiting. Waiting for him to wash his hands. It takes him so long and it’s so much easier to do it for him but then he doesn’t learn. So much waiting. Waiting until August for the Read more…

Normal Kind of Crazy

If I let myself off the hook from writing more often- then I would let myself off the hook from looking for inspiration…  I need to find some sort of morsel of inspiration in order to write… And if I didn’t write very often, I might not look for inspiration as much. That’s not OK with me. Like Read more…

Good Intentions

Late this morning I went for a run… A super slow, 3 mile, butt cheeks flapping and mocking me in the wind kind of run… But as the perfection post mentioned- the slow butt cheek flopping run is better than the super duper fast 5 mile run that I don’t go on… While running, my music wouldn’t Read more…

Bad on Paper

We received Greyson’s written diagnosis of Autism in the mail a few days before his 3rd birthday… Ironically I was so happy to receive it because we needed the document to be eligible for services to continue after his actual 3rd birthday… I remember Greyson’s caseworker coming over a few weeks later.. She had overseen Read more…
