Lillian drew this with chalk outside. I asked what’s the stuff on the sides of the heart. It’s a girl heart!!

Bday party for one of Lillian’s friends at Build a Bear in the mall.

So, since Ms. Lillian won’t touch stuffed animals, Thomas chose the animal and helped with the stuffin.

Lillian chose the name and the clothes. And this monkey, named Lilly, by the way is extra special. It has 2 hearts. One for Thomas & one for Lillian!

Throwback Post: Comfort Zone is With Books All Around Him


September 26 2014:

During our walk Thomas was showing me the 3 main moves of fencing. I asked who had taught him that. Oh, remember when I told you I read all the encyclopedia’s in the classroom? It was in there …. Then I found an old modular quick jack, still in the package, on the ground during our walk. He was so excited to get home and examine this odd thing. I haven’t used a land line since maybe 2009. …. Then he told me that his comfort zone at school is with books all around him, researching and writing reports. Yesterday he wrote a report about Italy. Today was the Eastern Hemisphere. He’s so inspiring. I just love being around him!

Throwback Post: When We Are Happy and Kind


September 26 2012:

That moment when your six year old son finally understands all the things you have been telling him about happiness … That moment when …. that moment when time stands still …. That moment is when you acknowledge to yourself that YOU are the one that helped him understand and to turn his thoughts around.

For the past few weeks Thomas has been struggling in school. He loves the school, loves the playground and generally liked being there. But, every morning for the past few weeks he’s been unhappy with going to school. Says he doesn’t want to go, there’s nothing to do, it’s no fun, so and so isn’t being kind to him, the teacher won’t answer his questions. After I did some investigation, listening and chatting with the teacher, I came to the conclusion that this was coming from Thomas’ thinking. He had decided to be unhappy with his lessons in school, unhappy being there … just unhappy about the whole thing. He kept saying he was unhappy and it was no fun. I have been kindly and gently discussing with him that the way he is thinking about his day before he even gets there is why he is not happy. He is putting off an unhappy energy and being grumpy. I told him it is his choice whether he has a good day or a bad day at school.

Before I dropped him off this morning he told me that yesterday, he was happy and kind with everyone in his classroom. He said, that’s how it works right? When we are happy and kind, the people around us are too. I told him “You got that right!”. It starts with YOU first. Once we decide to be happy and be kind, it spreads to those around us and …… Then …. it comes back to us! I told him how proud I was of him for figuring it out!

This morning he got out of the car happy and smiling …. That moment when …. That moment when you are filled with so much joy that your eyes begin to sweat as your drive off …. That Moment!

Throwback Post: This is Not My Planet


September 26 2010:

Thomas says: “This is not my planet. I am from Jupiter. When I grow up I’m going to go into space and go back to Jupiter!” Plus, he’s taking Lillian with him! They are now having a conversation about what they will pack for the journey! It’s times like this I’m so grateful for these two and their imaginations!”

4:15 pm this afternoon I introduced Lillian to Evernote. I created her very own Lillian notebook within my account as you have to be 13 to register. By bed time tonight she had created several notes including one note with a photo embedded, one note with audio and one note with a webcam photo! Geez! I haven’t even used any of those features and I’ve been using it longer! Go Lillian Go!!


September 26 2009:

How Do You Spell . . .

I choose 2 have sense of humor bout Lillian’s speech issue. This am she asked me how 2 spell a word. Now that’s Funny when you are being asked 2 spell a word that you can’t even understand when it’s being pronounced. Cool thing about her Dynavox – she can type in a letter or 2 & it’ll give suggestions of what word begins w/ those letters. The word? Illustrations! (She was writing a book this am titled “Magic Facts” & she’s also the illustrator of the book!!) She cracks me up!

Throwback Post: Home Made Spa Day


September 25 2015:

Homemade spa day today. Thomas and Lillian are hanging out with Ms. Kat and I’m having the afternoon to myself. Haven’t experienced an away from home spa day since October 2002. Just made an appointment for next Thursday to be pampered to nirvana. I should be good for another 13 years! HA! It wasn’t easy to make the phone call to schedule. I first had to connect with some unlovely feelings that I was doing something wrong or bad. Then I was able to call with gratitude and peace. Wahoo!! Very much looking forward to it. xoxo

Throwback Post: The Happy Virus


September 25 2012:

Driving to family swim night this past Friday night, Thomas says to me, “I’ve got the Happy Virus”. Then he tells me what that is .. something like you are just so happy with all the stuff that’s going on ….

Well, y’all know me! I’m like, What a phrase you just coined Thomas!! That’s it! Team TLC is out to infect as many people as we can with the Happy Virus … watch out y’all. I hear you can get an immunization for it at your local pharmacy; but they are running low … we may just get to you with our Happy Virus before you can get immunized!!
