8 letters, 3 Words = Best Day EVER.

My heart is Super-Happy!  Want to know why?  A magical thing happened this morning. I was so tired I almost missed it, but I am Sooo glad I didn’t.     The set-up for this scenario isn’t spectacular, but what took place is beyond Awesome! It was early.  Only Micah and I were awake and up, and […]


You Win!

A few minutes ago I unlocked some features for the kiddo on one of his ipad apps (i.e. I made an in-app purchase). No real reason.   I just felt like it, and it wasn’t too pricey.   I was rewarded with the BEST reaction from him. Micah:  (while looking at the screen),  “You WIN!”   Then, […]


Can I get a Do-over, please?

Lost my cool yesterday, just for second (but that’s all it takes).  Not that I never have had that happen before.   It was just one of THOSE days, but I wish the little things wouldn’t bother me.  I wish I could always be above them and I could walk around uninfluenced by stupid or […]


Hugs & Kisses, XOXO

I love puppets, always have.  There is just something magical about fabric that is created into a doll or figure of a person or creature that is moved by strings attached to its limbs, or by a hand inserted in its cloth body.  Some of my most favorite puppets are the famously, world-renown Muppets® that […]

Play with your food. Yup, you heard right.  Micah’s Occupational therapist told me to encourage Micah to play with his food.  Kiss, touch, smash, cut-up, roll it around, push it through a tube, whatever he likes as long as he engages with his food.  (For those reading this that are new to our situation, we […]


Monster “A” verses Monster “B”…which would you choose?

One of the hardest internal conflicts for me to deal with as a mom is the dilemma of giving oral medication to my 2-year old son when he is sick. What’s the big deal, you ask? Well, let me explain it like this:  If you ever want to the “Cliff Notes” version of what it […]


Am I from another planet?

29th January 2012 | 0 Comments

I’m up at 1:38am after going to bed.  I can’t sleep.  I’m a light sleeper and even the slightest noises can bother me and rouse me from my sleep.  When I do end up awake in the early mornings I find my mind thinks about the weirdest topics…case-in-point, the reason I’m writing this post. There […]


Reflections of D-day (Discovery day)

…. …. …. …. I’m not good at journaling, never have been.  I just don’t write my thoughts down every day…but I find myself trying to pick up this habit and attempting to journal every once in a while.  It never sticks (also why my blog posts are random and few & far between), but […]


ASD – Diagnosed

20th December 2011 | 0 Comments

We finally received Micah’s autism diagnosis yesterday, after a 4 hour evaluation.  It’s actually a relief to get the official diagnosis because it’s been 5 months of chaos since he had language regression, since we first saw signs of autistic behavior & went to our first doctor’s appointment.  Since then, Sooooo many tests were done, […]
