My current perspective on World Down Syndrome Day
I started this post 2 weeks ago on World Down Syndrome Day, and as is typical of my life, I’m hoping to finish it today.  Such a mix of emotions and so many things that I feel differently about now than I did five and six years ago.  On that Tuesday, in mos...

As World Down Syndrome Day approaches...
Well, we're approaching World Down Syndrome Day and we've got some things going on at Casa de Theodore.  Before I get to the Tera related news let's talk preemie struggles.  Our poor little ZoZo got hit with a nasty virus that just won't let go of her.  And...

How many more weeks till summer?
It turns out I have some really great ideas while driving. So I’m going to have to try getting my ideas out and recording them on my phone to use later so I don’t lose these gems.   I wish I could say I had happy gems today, but after a day of PARRC testing...

Progress!
I'm trying to keep this ball rolling so here goes my second post in a week after a long hiatus.  I had such a positive response from so many people after my last post and for any of you that took the time to say or write something to me, you have no idea th...

My non-triumphant return to blogging
Today was a rough day.  Let me clarify, it’s been an interesting 48 hours.  Yesterday, for an unknown reason, Tera swallowed a magnetic marble which resulted in an ER visit.  Fortunately, there was only one and it should pass on its own so beyond the initia...
