Yippee for HT

Emotional roller coaster week for Riley. She’s still not quite back to her baseline. So much screaming. It feels like the family is holding on by a thread. Actually, Seth is seeming quite okay, but he’s gone a lot at school. He’s … Continue reading

Girls On the Run Teaches Assertive Communication

Yesterday at Girls on the Run the lesson was about being assertive. We practiced using language to get our message across if someone is bothering us. Careful language, no blaming. No “you always…!” Or “you never!” No yelling. No ignoring ’til you lose your cool and explode. … Continue reading

Riley + Alvin (TLA)

Riley has a mad crush, but I’m not so sure about this guy. He seems a bit cocky, and might be a lot of trouble.   We have not seen her this excited since the Rolie Polie Olie obsession of 2002. It’s weird, because she … Continue reading

It Might Be the Juice

1:48 AM and I’m up because I need a fucking cup of tea. It’s a crutch in times of stress. Not the tea, the swearing. Wiped out, I went to bed at 10:00PM and tried to sleep. It didn’t take, because my … Continue reading

Romance, anyone?

Angelo Zuccolo was born into a family of actors, poets, sculptors, painters and singers. Within this context, the enchantment and romance of a world filled with sensory, sensuous and sensual poetry were present from sunrise to sunset. His insights into the flavor … Continue reading

  We went to a new age expo over the weekend. The kids saw a little picture taking/aura reading booth and wanted to have theirs read. I post these not because I take great stock in aura reading, (especially from a picture booth). I … Continue reading

Sadness came by yesterday. After barricading the door a while, I let her in.

Just because someone doesn’t do something I would like them to do, does not make them wrong. Just because I feel sad, does not make them wrong. When I make them wrong I merely feel worse, because I get kicked out of alignment. That’s all pain is. … Continue reading

Kids Do Well When They Can

One of the best books on dealing with challenging kids I’ve ever read was Dr. Ross Green’s The Explosive Child. It changed so much for us. Dr. Green has a radio talk show on Tuesdays and takes questions on how to help … Continue reading

One evening on the Caribbean cruise, I met Richard. He’s a singer. It was just before the karaoke show, (which I never would have participated in but enjoyed watching) and we discussed my public singing phobia. He used to have it too, and … Continue reading

For those of you who think HT is soooo wonderful…

He’s recently kicked me, and punched me in the head. The other night, he got in late, and I was already blissfully asleep. I roused a little when I felt him get into bed, and began to scoot backward toward him … Continue reading

“Oh Let Me Live in a Wholly Holy Way”

Last week was the first day in a new session of clay class after spring break. Riley had a hard time again. The start of anything new is a trigger for her. The clay was wet, and it stuck to her rolling pin. … Continue reading

God Doesn’t Give You More Than You Can Handle

Parents of kids with special needs get this line all the time. I personally don’t think God is some wise old dude in the sky, doling out disabilities based on parental strength. Often it seems people use this quote because they don’t know what to say … Continue reading
