But can I really handle this?
This past month has brought so many challenges.  Tera went from struggling for weeks at home without reason, to improving at home but struggling at school (without reason), to an amazing week with five straight great days (without reason) to several bad day...

Seriously? 7?
And here we are again.  When I can't seem to find the time the rest of the year, I do look forward to the emotional catharsis that comes along with my children's birthdays.  Without sounding overly dramatic, I do kind of wish that I could celebrate their bi...

Here's to another new year...
Well, here we are on the first day of the New Year and I have so many thoughts and feelings.  As I've gotten older the focus has been less on what exciting plans we have for New Year's Eve and more wonder at what ungodly hour my children will wake us up on ...

Honoring our Preemie
It may be typical second child syndrome (or more aptly for parents, second child syndrome guilt), but while Tera gets a whole month and then another day in March for her awareness, Zoey alas is relegated to really only a day.  We have t-shirts proclaiming T...

Tonight, I'm not a fan of you Down Syndrome.
Tonight I hate it.  I hate Down Syndrome.  It’s pretty difficult to admit I hate anything that has to do with my children, but I feel very strongly tonight.   This week Tera brought home a new notebook and an assignment sheet.  The assignment has to do with...

The 3rd anniversary of a pretty crazy time
In full disclosure, I started this the week before Zoey’s birthday (about a month ago)... We’ve hit the 3rd anniversary of a pretty traumatic event: aka Zoey’s birthday.  Pretty much as soon as summer hits, I start remembering all the things I did with Tera...

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...

On our Sixth Anniversary
So many things to think about right now.  First and foremost, Tera’s sixth birthday is on Sunday.  That means so many things to me.  It’s the sixth anniversary of us being parents, the sixth anniversary of our lives changing forever, the sixth anniversary o...
