Rethinking Dyslexia

If you are a parent of a young child or an educator, have HBO and have power, please tune into "Rethinking Dyslexia" at 7pm tonight. 1 in 5 kids are born with it, and most kids never get diagnosed. Joey has it. And today, for the first time, he spelled "I love you" to me.

I witnessed a miracle today. My son, who believes Jesus is a zombie (because he came back to life) and has a hard time focusing on "God class," got 100% on his Ten Commandments quiz, without any help!

Birth marks

I read this today: "According to some old myths, birth marks are where you were killed in your last life." Does this mean I was stabbed multiple times in random places, like my left heel? Joey told me yesterday I had "so many brown spots because they multiplied by having the same DNA."

2 things

I asked Joey to tell me 2 good things about his day. He said, "2 things? You picking me up and talking to Daddy."
