She has curly hair, right?

Curly hair

A strange coincidence happened to me this week. One hundred miles from where I grew up, and nearly 20 years later, I discovered that one of my children’s favorite line therapists is the little sister of a boy I had a crush on in middle school. She and her brother lived across the street from one of my best friends at the time. When she told her brother about it and asked if he remembered me, he replied, “She has curly hair, right?”

LEGO KidsFest

Do you and your kids love playing with LEGO bricks? I love the creativity that LEGO inspires. Toys that encourage creativity are important for our family.

An Unexpected Visitor Darkens The Door

He towers over me, surrounding me in his shadow.

{KWW} My Little Biker Gang

My Little Biker Gang

For a long time, I wasn’t sure how long it would take for C to learn to push the pedals on a bike. His muscle tone and coordination just wasn’t there. He worked on it at his therapy center and soon he was zooming around on a trike. When he opened his Christmas gift and saw this Cars bike, he was thrilled. He and his little sister love riding around on their bikes. It’s funny how a little childhood thing like riding bikes can easily be taken for granted. I’m so proud of these two! Here’s my little biker gang. 😉
