Letting it go...

When the twins were around three years old, they were finally able to crawl around the house the way they had been wanting to. The world had finally opened up a crack for them. Each inch required strength and determination. But, as Candace said, "I wanna GO!" they persevered. I watched her drag herself across the room one day while I folded laundry. Soon the cries began. Not weeping cries, but angry and frustrated cries. Her position to keep her balance was interfering with the grip she had on the folded chair she wanted to explore. As she tried to prop herself up to get a better look, her hand had become pinned and twisted in its grasp on the chair leg. "If it hurts, let go", I called to her. More wailing. So again, "Candace, let go if it is hurting you!" Silence. In that quiet moment of her resignation the words bounced off the walls and back to me.

A post for Jerry, 'cause he needs a parade costume....

Now I realize this posting of info is about a week late, BUT I decided to share these sites anyway. Maybe Jerry, from Joni and Friends Greater Philadelphia, is not the only one needing a parade costume to fit over his power chair. Jerry, and any others who happen to find this interesting, click below...( I think you need to combine "Santa" and "the King")
Click here for costume ideas...
However, I REALLY would rather see you in "the claw" costume. Find the claw costume here...scroll down the page. OH how the visual of this tickles me!!!!

Teacher gifts

Happy November! Like it or not, I guess it is time to start thinking about holiday shopping.  Teacher gifts can be a real budget stretcher if I am not careful. If you have children with special needs you probobly have the "whole village" to show appreciation to. I will start to collect inexpensive teacher gift ideas....
Here is one I just stumbled across:

Inexpensive, yet meaningful, teacher gift….

It’s a Teacher Assort-“mint” Bag
Here is what the poem says on front…
