How rivers change their path

Mon, 10 Dec 2012 10:00:47 +0000

The other day, we took the kids to the bookstore to pick up a shiny new book. The girls picked books out with no problem (other than maybe having too many options). Pookie picked up a bunch but did not really seem to be into the whole process. I started encouraging him toward a few […]

Coach Dad

Thu, 18 Oct 2012 15:00:02 +0000

Geetle is playing basketball again this fall through the rec league which makes it her third season which is the longest she has committed to anything that doesn’t rhyme with Mintendo knee. She is definitely starting to make some sense of parts of the game. She had a couple steals, a couple rebounds, and even […]

Gifted Program Testing Breakdown

Wed, 08 Feb 2012 02:03:59 +0000

Geetle had one of the funniest powerful and genuine emotions the other day. We had been procrastinating on telling her about the test she is going to need to take next week for potential placement in the gifted program. We were completely expecting her to be pissed for one or more of a few very […]

Freeze. Do not move.

Mon, 30 Jan 2012 11:00:35 +0000

The twins turn nine tomorrow. I’ll deal with that later. Yesterday, we were visiting BeAGoodMom’s family. Geetle sat in the chair one row back but on the passenger side instead of directly behind me. She spent most of the drive playing her new LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 on her Nintendo DS. After a while […]

Interesting New School Problem

Thu, 26 Jan 2012 11:00:44 +0000

Believe it or not, there is a little school problem brewing and it has nothing to do with Pookie’s education. Geetle has been invited to take a test in a couple Saturdays that will be used to determine if she will be invited to the district’s gifted program in 4th grade. If she doesn’t take […]

Not an expert on autism

Tue, 24 Jan 2012 12:00:57 +0000

I am definitely not an expert on autism. I’m barely competent at dealing with the flavors of autism that manifest in Pookie. I have tried over the years to talk about things as we are going through them which frequently helps me when I look back through the archives. There is quite a lot of […]

Meet the newest member of the family

Mon, 23 Jan 2012 12:00:49 +0000

In ten days, the twins will be 9 years old. About 9 years and a month ago, we ditched SoonToBeAGoodMom’s Cavalier and bought a 2002 Mazda MPV. We drove all three of the kids home from the hospital in that sweet ride. We’ve driven the kids to emergency rooms, vacations, our for ice cream, to […]

Trouble With Kids Growing Up

Fri, 20 Jan 2012 11:00:51 +0000

On Monday, I take the big kids to their drum lesson from 6:30 to 7:30 while BeAGoodMom goes to the gym. Afterward, she brings them home to put them to bed while I go to the gym. On Wednesday, Geetle frequently goes to church with her best friend and normally isn’t home until slightly after […]

Language Developments

Wed, 18 Jan 2012 11:00:26 +0000

So Pookie and I were sitting around after his drum lesson waiting for Geetle to finish her lesson. I took a break from my Geometry homework and decided to log my dinner in the most excellent LoseIt! app but ran into a problem. I couldn’t remember everything we had. So I asked Pookie, “What did […]

Sick Day

Sat, 14 Jan 2012 12:00:05 +0000

Giggles was sick the other day and had to stay home from school on the day of the week BeAGoodMom has to work at the office. So I use a sick day and stayed home. I kept her juiced up and fed her boring foods and read books to her and let her watch tV […]
