I just got treated to a great show right in my living room full of dancing and professional mirror writing! It began with a dedication to me … made my heart swell with love and my eyes pool with sweat! Complete with an intermission where I was served sunflower seeds, pistachio nuts and water. After the show I received a 16 minute back scratch/massage …. Ahhhh! I’m ready for bed now!

**Update – October 2021 – When coming across such wonderful memories, and photos, I must remind myself to smile, to feel joy because these beautiful moments happened, and not to be sad because they are no longer. xoxo

Sweet Dreams Spell from the book “A Little Fairy Princess Magic” … Read to Lillian just about every night for about the past 2 years …
“Faires, as I rest in bed, bring sweet dreams into my head, keep me safe and guard the door, bring tales of happiness forever more. As I close my eyes and fall asleep, bring magical memories for me to keep. Fairies, as I rest in bed bring sweet dreams into my head.”
Sweet dreams to all y’all tonight. Gonna review my talk for tomorrow to a group of UNR undergrad med students from a parent’s perspective (of being parent to a child with special needs) and then I’m off to dream land!

“Mom, can I clean the stove?” -Thomas …. Sure Thomas! I love it when he asks me this!!
July 30 2017:
He (Thomas) asks, “Where’s my pillow?” …. after he looks all over the house for it. “You put it in the freezer after you took it out of the backpack you’d put it in because you were leaving and going to live somewhere else.”
“Oh. That’s right! Thanks!” 😂…. Then he gets in bed with the “Social Security for Dummies” book that he checked out from the library and starts reading it. 😜
I have been blessed with some incredibly interesting kids who are definitely unboring. 🙏💞 xoxox

Thomas came inside early this evening with dirt all over the front of his shirt. He said “I just hugged and kissed a pile of dirt. I need to rinse my mouth off now.”
Says he just loves being outside soooo much! Then he asked if what he did was okay. I told him absolutely and that I thought that it was great that he did that! Big dirt filled hug y’all!
