Pandemic Schooling

So, this week, we got the information from our school board about the return to school in about three weeks. School was out/virtual from March break until June due to the pandemic. I will say that I’m very hesitant about sending kiddo back to school. The positives are that she’ll be in a very small…… Continue reading Pandemic Schooling

Learning At Home

It’s been about two months since things came to a grinding halt. We initially thought it was going to be two weeks longer than the planned March Break. But, in some ways for the best, we’ve been trying to learn from home. Kiddo has been doing well. She misses the heck out of interacting with…… Continue reading Learning At Home

Schooling from Home

With the COVID-19 pandemic all the schools are closed in our province for the next two weeks minimum. So, we’re trying to work on home schooling the Little Miss. We’re doing our part in social distancing and washing our hands/sanitizing. But being on the spectrum presents some challenges that we are trying to meet head…… Continue reading Schooling from Home

This year my adorable little illness vector managed to catch a cold, the flu and have it progress to pneumonia in…… Continue reading Germies Germies Germies

From day one she’s been a child that goes against all odds. I call her my impossible girl because there has been so much that has happened that…… Continue reading The Four-nado

Adventures in Autism

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

School Time!

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!

Space Dreams

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

Toys, Blocks, Fun

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
