I got 2 turntables and a microphone

Where it’s at??? I spent the last 3 days in a leadership training class at work. I am fascinated by  human nature and what makes people act they way that they do. This is a group of 15 managers at my company from all over with no relationship to each other, much like the phrases […]

You Like Me, You Really Like Me!

I received a notification from WordPress that I have 100 “likes” on my blog! So funny to think others will like or relate to my life. I have had no less then 10 friends from high school, college, law school, etc. share with me that they too have a child on the spectrum. This info instantly makes me […]

Bryan stopped growing between ages 4 and 5 and was diagnosed with idiopathic short stature (doesn’t grow […]

Barking up the wrong tree!

I am working only in the afternoons this week, it’s spring break here and the boys are off from school. Typically we send them to camp but not this year.  So this morning I decided to take them to the new dog park we have here in town called Barkland. It is a really nice dog […]
