1. Michael took the kids to an adaptive adventure day last weekend for children with special needs and their families. It was amazing. There were pony rides, face painting, games, crafts, and volunteers with loads of different specialties. Everyone they met or talked to was kind, understanding, gentle, and helpful. Michael said of the experience “my…

1. Biggest, strongest. One day during occupational therapy, Sophie was working on pencil grasp and letter tracing with her therapist. The therapist would write a letter, then Sophie would copy it. She decided to write hers extra big and proclaimed them “The Biggest, Strongest H” or “The Biggest, Strongest S.” Since then, anything remotely big…

1. Good News Minute. We had a neurology follow-up this week and I was SO happy to get good news. I’ve been afraid to say it out loud (since surely that would jinx it), but Sophie has been tic free for a month! No involuntary movements, nothing to disrupt her normal living, school work, or…

1. Few people in this world give a “crusty” like Milo does. Boyfriend has been in fine form lately. One second, he’s pleasantly looking at you, smiling, maybe flirting a little, then BAM. Crusty. What have you done in those few seconds? Something to think about. He’ll never tell.
