Day 206 – The Day I Share My Take on Staring

I realize that this was supposed to be a series of pictures but I was inspired today while on a picnic at the park with the boys so I am writing this one.

One of the issues parents say they struggle with is staring from other people.  They really don’t like it.  We were always told when we were young that it is impolite to stare at other people.

Here is my take.  I actually don’t mind it, in fact, I would even like to encourage it.  Yes, you heard me right. Read More

Ethan usually likes to climb on this while it is upright.  He decided he wanted to walk on it's side.

Day 201 – I Had a Dream

Well, yesterday was kind of hectic and Andy was home so I did not get my pic in.  But I had a dream last night.  I don’t usually dream because when I am allowed (by the boys) to sleep, I sleep really soundly.  But last night I had a dream.  I dreamt that Ethan had fallen out of my parents upstairs window and I was hanging out the window holding on to him, half way out the window myself.  I managed to pull him up where John grabbed him then after Ethan was inside John was able to pull me in.  That was it.  Strange and short.  Thankfully, we live in a bungalow!

Day 200 – Favourite Driving Spots

[box]One of our favourite spots to drive with the boys is down a tree lined road in the short hills.  It winds and bends and goes up and down and it is closely surrounded by trees.  There is a creek that travels alongside the road for a bit and I know Andy particularly enjoys seeing the water.  If the weather is nice, we roll the windows right down for Andy to stick his hand out.  He likes the feeling of the air and leaves brushing against his hand and arm.[/box]

Day 198 – 31 Days of Blogging in October

Every year in October there are a group of bloggers that challenge themselves to blog for 31 consecutive days straight.  It is called 31 Days.

Since October also happens to be Autism Awareness Month in October, I decided to do my 31 Days last year on Autism Awareness.  It was a challenge and you will find them under that category here on the blog in case you missed it. Read More
