Lookey Lookey! We’re BACK

Pbthhhhhhhhhhh! Well, another summer has come and gone and like that we have a house full of third graders. It was an up and down time for us with, thankfully, more UPS than downs. After being without a job, dad started a new position in Syracuse. After a week of misbehavior we figured out Theodore … Continue reading

Then, There’s These Two

 I must admit, I do tend to tell my friends about every little thing that Theo does. Not because it’s earth-shattering, but, as a special needs parent when your kid does something spectacular you like to shout it from the mountain. Well, he’s got two pretty smart sisters who should also be praised for all … Continue reading

#Autumn Advantage

So after last nights all-out-shouting-and-no-soccer war, I very tenderly and gently suggested to take the girls out to the track tonight to burn off some energy. I figure that part of the reason why Gretchen is having these meltdowns is — and I’m assuming here — that Theo is taking up a lot of time … Continue reading

Movin On Up

Well, this is the last official week of kindergarten for Gretchen and Olena. They still get their shoes mixed up and on the wrong feet. (OK. That’s mostly Gretchen although Olena tried to wear two different sneakers this morning. Yup, the secret is out!!) We still nail the tying of the shoes…only to have a … Continue reading

One Hour Delay

Funny how one change…can set everything off. After freezing rain moved into the area late at night, and the temperatures dipped below freezing, the school district decided to delay opening by one hour. Do you realize how much this sets all of us off?! 1. Since the girls move like lightning in the morning (not) … Continue reading

He said HELLO

Quick post from this mama: and it’s about another little boy who rides the bus with Theodore. He is a handsome little thing and most days you’d never even know he was theres aside from his saying an enthusiastic “Theo” when my boy gets on the bus. Today, was a first for me and Theo’s … Continue reading

Celebrate My Gretchie!

Short and sweet post my friends. Since she’s tested so well and made vast improvements since September, I am very happy to report that Gretchen will no longer be needing Physical Therapy! She’s no longer a 504 kiddo. I am incredibly proud of how hard she worked and is working. She never let her small … Continue reading

2012 in Review: My Life in Triplicate

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get … Continue reading

Hottest Ticket in Town

I’ve been to plenty of concerts and the anticipation for this one was no different. I was going to see my favorite performers and I was nervous! Pulling up to the venue I noticed that parking for the 1 p.m. concert was at a premium. Crowds were gathering…all walks of life, kids big and small, all … Continue reading

Back to School: Kindergarten 2012-13

Last time I posted was back in July. July 6 I believe… And now, we’re back to school. New teachers, new daycare, and new bus (for Theodore at least)… Short but sweet update: the first 2 full school days are under our collective belts and, hate to jinx things, but things went very well. Since … Continue reading
