The Hardest Thing I hope I ever write- part 3 of 3

Today is the last day of my temporary break in my self depricating humor and blaming the worlds woes on celebrities and gravity. Today I am going to let you in to one of the most personal issues of my life. It’s a long post and probably not funny to anyone. I don’t apologize. If you haven’t read part 1 and part 2 , you probably should do that first  or your not going to really understand what's going on in this post AT ALL. ...more

The Hardest Thing I hope I ever write- part 2 of 3

Day 2 of a temporary break in my self depricating humor and blaming the worlds woes on celebrities and gravity. Today I am going to let you in to one of the most personal issues of my life. It’s a long post and probably not funny to anyone. I don’t apologize. If you haven't read part 1, you probably should do that first. OK so remember in Part 1 where I said this entire post /  thread would probably be controversial?  We are officially entering that part. This is where I try to explain a lot in a short post, I will fail.  ...more

From Pillar to Post

I'm hopeful that at some point I'll be able to write a blog post where things are progessing but it won't be this one. I'm really getting the run around and getting pretty fed up with it. I got a letter from Paediatrics telling me that Nipper had an appointment. Great, it must be the language assessment. However, the letter wasn't clear and the appointment wasn't until December - rather a long time to wait for an assessment. So I rang up to check it out and ask how come we had to wait so long (7 months from when we saw the Paediatrician). ...more

WHAT CAN PARENTS DO TO KEEP THEIR KIDS SAFE FROM BULLIES?

Parents should be open to the fact that bullying does exist and that their child might be a target, a bully, a bystander or a combination of the three. Since bullying takes on all forms and attacks all kinds, parents should keep communication open and watch for the signs that might indicate that their child could be a target or a bully or both....more

Sometimes Its Not About Autism, Sometimes People Are Just Asshats

The question becomes how do our children truly fit into the picture of American society and what does the future hold for them? We can look objectively at the way society on an individual basis interacts with our children. We can pinpoint at anytime the odd, asshat who is mean and cruel to our children. But do we allow it to overshadow the mostly good that we encounter in our world?...more

From Few Words to One Kvetchy Kid

I remember when collegeman was little and I had decided to return to work. The only problem was that I had wanted him to talk to me about his day before I would apply for a job. While I knew that most nannies are good people and take their jobs of care seriously there is always that one individual who gives you nightmares. And yes they did play it up on the news but, why take a chance. Why have to put in nanny cams and security programs so you can go and earn a few extra dollars? The truth is that the sojourn into the world of work did not happen, because collegeman did not talk....more

Wisdom Teeth: Anxiety and Extraction

Wisdom teeth extraction is a very interesting phenomenon that happens to most young adults. When I was growing up it was a several day affair in the hospital. Today they take themselves to the oral surgeon. Sit themselves in a dentist’s chair and 40 minutes later out the teeth come. It is a relatively minor occurrence in today’s world. What a difference thirty years makes. But then again since everything else has progressed why shouldn’t this type of surgery have progressed as well? I know I learned that reality when collegeman had had his appendix out....more
