I’ve been putting this entry off for a while, because I’ve needed time to digest, to sit and actually feel the emotions that come with this. The little miss has been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. I know I shouldn’t be surprised, because there is a large genetic component and as her father…… Continue reading Adventures in Autism
I had intended, as the little miss is one of the children born at the end of the year, to hold her back until next year to go to junior kindergarten. But it was suggested to get her into school ASAP (why this was suggested, I’ll talk about in a post soon). So off to…… Continue reading School Time!
Its finally summer again. While I’m not a huge fan of the hot weather, I enjoy watching the little miss get out in her pool and go “swimming”. Right now that’s something that I enjoy. I can even get my feet in the pool and splash a bit with her. I didn’t learn to swim…… Continue reading Swimming-ly Summer
The little miss has developed a more than passing interest in space. She loves dang near everything to do with space. Rockets, Planets, Comets… you name it and she’s into it. I am fairly certain she has dreams of space. Mars Rover I think she comes by it honestly. I realized I could never go…… Continue reading Space Dreams
So, it’s been a while since I sat down and wrote anything here. Truth is, I considered closing up shop. Why? Because of the words of one person. Evidently, I suck as a person and a mother, and they made sure that I knew this blog sucked. Ah well, they’re no longer in my life,…… Continue reading Toys, Blocks, Fun
It has been a while since I last updated. I’ve been busy with the million appointments that come with both my health and the little girl’s, which means that sitting down to do blogging has kind of fallen to the wayside. Now that we’re heading into her third year, things should hopefully slow down and…… Continue reading Time Flies By
It’s been a while since I last updated. I know, bad blogger. Right now I’m wiped because it’s summertime and my little monkey is making the most out of it, trying to learn how to swim, staying at her Nana and GrandDada’s trailer for a while, and just being active and full of beans. This…… Continue reading Sweet Summertime
I haven’t been around much here because, as you can guess, I am the mother of a nuclear powered toddler who just doesn’t stay still. That makes for a hard time to sit down and write about what has gone on lately. We suffered through our first ear infection, and through the usual stuff that…… Continue reading Terrible Twos, two and a bit….
Only in my house is the “If you don’t go to your room, you won’t get a story before bed” a threat. My daughter has loved books since she was able to sit up. I have read to her nightly (as I can) since she was born. Her love of books comes from me, and…… Continue reading Raising a Reader…
So, yeah, I’ve been gone for a long time. I do have an excuse. I have been busy chasing around a toddler who has two speeds – either on or off. We’ve also had a lot happening in our personal lives. I’m in the final stages of submitting my first novel, and we’re working on…… Continue reading I’ve been gone, because I’ve been busy
