The Boy - Part Five, or The End of the Beginning
Thank you all so much for sticking through this. I promise, after today we will be up to date. (In case you're new here: One , Two   Three ,  Four .) First Grade. We made it. When the year started, I wanted things to start off on the right foot with Ben’s n...

The Boy - Part Three
Read Part One Here Read Part Two Here I’ve been writing a series of posts about our son, Ben. In the last year, we’ve been taking steps to get him diagnosed with ADD with hyperactivity, or ADHD, as well as with some sensory issues. I’ve wanted to get this n...

The Boy - Part One
I'm not sure how to write about this yet. Some of it seems so simple, that there are answers to the questions that we've had for a while. But it's my kid, and my heart; and it's not simple. Even when it is. And by talking about what's going on with my kids,...

Something to say
It's been quiet around here. I haven't had much to say, so I have been avoiding this place. The weather is turning, and the leaves are putting on their fall colors, slowly. We're creeping towards winter again. But I am, as ever preparing for it. I have medi...

Not all who wander...
It's high summer. The middle of July, when the streets of New York City reek with smells I can't even begin to name. I walk down the street, my clothes sticking to me and counting the steps until I am inside in the AC again - drinking something cool and fre...

Back in the swing
Now that we've settled all of that, I needed some space. I needed to get the words I wrote out into the universe. Ben is still Ben. Some days are great, and some are downright awful. And that will always be there. Winter has been slow in coming. It's warm a...

The Boy - Part Four
Read Part One , Two , Three So, there we were managing the best we could with the tools we had. A great deal of what we did was based on the fact that boys are still fundamentally different than girls, and that Ben is relatively young. His birthday is in Se...

The Boy - Part Two
Read Part One here So there we were Ben was starting school. For a September baby, who wasn’t really even potty trained before he started, he was amazing. For three hours a day, five days a week, he played, did art projects and sang songs. He was charming, ...

Re-Entry
I went away. I went away to learn, to reconnect with friends and to figure out why I keep at this, even as intermittently as I do. It was an amazing five days. I felt wonderful as I stepped out of my regular role as Mommy-in-Chief and act like a 100 percent...

Looking back
Last week was a week.  Dave was traveling - and it was a beastly trip - Denver, San Jose and Portland over five days. I was here, holding the rest of it together. Tuesday morning. Both kids, awake early, complaining of stomach aches, headaches. It was going...

Summer Looms Large
Today, Ben moves up from Kindergarten. He's made it - struggling, learning and growing. I am incredibly proud of him. Saying goodbye to small-kid time (as Bonnie would say) and moving on to greater and greater things. Here's to the future. Love you, sweetes...
