Welcome spring!

March+21+011

Today is the official first day of spring. In honor of the special day I took the girls to Sweet and Sassy to get haircuts. Actually, I took them today because Wednesdays are 10% off ‘kiddie cuts’ and a girl’s gotta save money anywhere she can, right? I love Sweet and Sassy, they actually do […]

Some clarification

It seems my post about Isabelle’s issues didn’t convey what I meant it to! We do not believe Belle is autistic. We think she, given enough time and intervention, will catch up. Most days I am encouraged and can shrug off what the developmental pediatrician had to say about Isabelle. But some days I just […]

Wonderfully made ~ edited :)

Copy+of+March+15+008

Here is a beautiful story I read online. It’s message went straight to my heart, it immediately made me think of my Isabelle. For those of you who don’t know, she was recently diagnosed with Autism. We do not agree with this, in fact no one who has spent any amount of time with Isabelle […]

So proud of our girl

March+14+004

Tori has always been a ‘good kid’. But when she came home with a report card in middle school that had A’s and B’s on it, Chris and I were not impressed. We insisted that we knew she could do better, in fact we were certain she could make straight A’s. Our lack of enthusiasm […]

Today started out well, Isabelle had OT in the morning with a wonderful, new OT who specializes in sensory issues. Then we headed to Isabelle’s speech therapy and hit McDonald’s in between Neither of the girls felt like napping (even though I tried!) so we headed to WalMart for a few essentials. Of course, Isabelle […]

My mom came down to spend part of the weekend since the kids had a holiday on Monday. The kids were in rare form, the weather was perfect and everyone was on a sugar induced high. We spent a good bit of the day outside and when evening fell we started up the mini fire […]

Sophie and her candy necklace

March+9+004

I had bought candy necklaces for the girls for Valentine’s Day. Well, Valentine’s day came and went and I forgot about these necklaces. This weekend I have been doing a bit of housecleaning and when I came across these I gave them to the girls to play with. As soon as the necklace was placed […]

One day last week we were hanging out when we got a call from Isabelle’s speech therapist that she was sick and we wouldn’t be able to see her that day. (Geesh, I hope our family didn’t get her sick!) Soooo, that meant we didn’t have ANY appointments or obligations for the afternoon! Oh yeahhh! […]

What I wanna know is…

March+1+006

How come kids throw up in their beds the night that you changed their sheets? And poop in the tub the day after you scoured it with Comet? Yeah, that’s the kind of week I’ve had. Actually, the ‘sickness’ has been around a few weeks, moving from Dalton to Asher and then, woefully, onto the […]
