What matters most.

Yesterday we went to the park. My husband’s students had a clean up day in downtown. I had to take the food midday and the monkey went with me. While the students were unloading the food from my car, I was struggling with the monkey. Since his hospital procedure this past Friday, he’d been a…

It’s ok to ask for help.

I decided to go see a doctor on Monday. I don’t have a primary doctor. When I get sick, very sick, I go to the Urgent Care clinics. I realized that I need to take care of myself in order to be healthy for my family. But I didn’t want to take time off from…

A belt is a necessity.

At night we always get ready for the morning rush. We make sure the monkey’s lunch is ready, his backpack is set, and his school clothes are laid out. This way in the morning, we aren’t running looking for shoes, or jacket, etc. And tonight I couldn’t find his belt. I looked everywhere and I…

Feel so lost.

On Mondays my parents take the monkey to speech therapy. My dad drives, the monkey sits behind him, and my mom sits in the back, next to the monkey. Today they were driving back home, the monkey saw that they were passing Albertsons. He usually gets excited and starts to flap his hands as they…

It gets better. ❀️

Not sure what’s going on with this kid but it’s not getting better. My parents went to pick him up at school today so they can take him to therapy. He threw himself on the school floor and fought everyone that got near him. My mom injured her shoulder. We keep making changes because his…

Maybe…. β€οΈπŸ™

I’ve mentioned before how it seems as if he is attempting to sing while watching videos online. Here’s a small clip of today. He just started doing this a little while ago. And if I’m being honest, it gives me hope that maybe, just maybe he’s understanding more. And maybe, this may be the first…

Active Shooter Drills πŸ’”

This past Friday, the school informed all parents that there would be an active shooter drill. I can’t imagine what these teachers go thru during these drills. πŸ’”πŸ’”And then add special need students? That must be so much harder. We are so blessed to have such a great teacher that understands our son and knows…

Valentine’s Day. ❀️

Working on the Valentine’s day candy for the monkey’s class for tomorrow. My daughter used to love to do this. Every February 13th, we’d work on decorating the candy bags and filling them up. She’d write down each of her classmate’s names in her prettiest handwriting. My son, on the other hand, doesn’t understand the…

Perfect Parents

Last weekend, my husband was doing yard work. The monkey and I were inside, I was working from home. After a while, the monkey went outside to play. I could see him and Harley (his doggy) wrestling on the trampoline. My husband came inside to talk to me. We started talking and lost track of…
