6 years ago today

It's hard to believe that 6 years ago today, my sweet little pepper was diagnosed with ASD. What a journey we have been on together. Sometimes, it's hard to look back on how far we've come. As much as I want to relive his time as a baby, there are certain moments, days, even months that I would rather skip. The very talkative young man that stands as high as my shoulder now, used to be a quiet, frustrated, little boy, living in a world I wasn't allowed to be a part of. The boy who runs to hug me used to never want to be touched. I am lucky that he is present in our lives and enjoying so many things kids his age enjoy. My littlest soul mate has taught me the biggest life lessons. And I am forever grateful. #tbt September 2008

Grandparents Day

Happy Grandparents Day to all the grandparents out there and to two special ones, Neems and Gramps! Growing up without grandparents, it is very important to me that Joey have a relationship with my parents. I am fortunate that they live a light away. They have been witness to the highs and lows in my little man's life and provided support, unconditional love, and a home away from home, full of tasty snacks, life lessons, and lots of belly laughs. Happy (almost) 10 years of being Grandparents. Here's to (at least) 30 more!
