Sometimes You Gotta Run Before You Can Walk


Iron Man said that, so it must be true. No more fitting time to start writing again… there was nothing much to say for the last few years and now, suddenly there is so much to say. Plus, I have to admit that I have been haunted by the friend […]

Who invented Lacrosse anyway?


When is it ok to just say that things kind of suck and are not going the way you wanted them to go?  Or, do we have to look on the bright side all the time? Take the whole cerebral palsy thing.  It turns out, as Max’s new psychologist seems […]

6 Month Check Up


I love clean teeth. I nag the kids about brushing their teeth and refuse to let even one required brushing slip past my watchful eyes – but this post is not about oral hygiene. Every six months, from the time the kids were babies, I made sure we scheduled the […]

Just Plain Weird


Ten years…. Max’s age as of last week and the amount of time I have been a mom to a child with cerebral palsy.  One would think, I would think, that I would have gotten the hang of it by now. This past year brought Max much success and many […]
