Random Mondayness

  • Time is zooming past. In my conversation with my friend Clare today we talked about the terrifying fact that our boys (months old when we met) are now FIVE. Where did it go? And suddenly all his shirts and pants are too short.
  • Handyman hubby was in the torrential freezing rain fixing a leak in our guest house ceiling yesterday. Boy, he's getting good at this stuff. Having a nearly 90 year old house will break in ones fixit skills in a jiffy (not speaking from experience, mind you).
  • This weekend I finished Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go, which I'd recommend,

and began The Red Queen by Margaret Drabble.
  • Appointment with Dr. Kartzinel tomorrow for Luke. The road to some answers?

Had to laugh at all the clothes being too small, Gina...I noticed last night when I picked Jay up from Grandma's that his belly was sticking out of his hoodie...

That darn thing was too BIG at christmas...and here we are barely to February...sigh...

I adored you last few posts...I've been keeping up on my READING, just not my POSTING!

We are going thru the "too-short-pants" faze as well.....and far be it that one little boy change into some that fit! Once they are on, they aren't coming off until bath time. Oh well..

Hope the visit to the doc goes well..

I just saw your comment on a post of mine last week....tells you I'm not so good at paying attention :) Thanks for giving me yet another blog to read...I love all the helpful info you share with us!

I found it interesting that your "industry" is accounting, yet you still have all this creativity going on. I am auditor for a public accounting firm, and firmly believe that even for an individual with a boring job in accounting, we all have some creativity hidden deep down inside. Glad to see you've embraced that :)

I often read your blog but have only responded to you once. My son Kevin has ADD and I have often thought he has some autistic traits but not enough to be diagnosed. He passed the CARDS test 2 times, but still there are issues. We took him to see Dr. Berger, the first doctor listed under the autism conference link you provided. we have begun some biological interventions including epsom salt baths, cod liver oil with HIGH concentrations of Omega-3 and we have begun methyl B-12 shots. Basically Dt. Berger was less concerned about a diagnosis and was more geered toward addressing Kevin's symptoms like poor focusing, language challenges, mediocre eye contact and deficient (but improving!!) social skills.
I live in Tampa and we are very lucky to have Dr. Berger's office only about 20 min. from our house. The only negative is that Insurance will not cover the treatment but my boy's health and well being is way more important than money. Something can always be moved around in the budget!! Contact me if you would like more information about our experience with Dr. Berger.
