We all do it. We don't know it, but we are constantly learning. I never realized how so much of what we know is purely accidental.
We are adopting an eleven year old girl. She is from the U.S. and has been in the system for approx. six years. She is completely Deaf. She is non-verbal. We have to explain so many things to her that you would not need to explain to a hearing child.
Many years ago, when my husband and I were travelling in New England, we came across a little boy and his father who were the best of buddies. The child was approximately 4-5 years old and had the same jeans, running shoes and white T-shirt on as his dad. He even wore his baseball cap to the side like his father.
The father had a unique stride as he walked in front of his son, who was a foot behind his dad.
This is my first attempt at blogging so forgive my newbieness.
I am the proud mother of three children ages 8,6, and 4. The oldest is a boy and the other two girls.

When the opportunity to participate in our daughter’s college orientation came up we thought, “Oh, wouldn’t it be fun to go back and relive our wild youth. Stay in the dorm overnight sharing a twin bed. Sneak out and drink beer. Break curfew. Play our stereos too loud (make that ipods). Hang out in dorm rooms with people we don’t know. Skip breakfast. Share the communal bathrooms. Arrive late to class (make that programs). Do something vaguely illegal.
“Grab your iPod and go study for the SAT!” I certainly never thought I’d hear myself say this to my college-bound teen since it’s usually the exact opposite coming out of my mouth during study time. Taking advantage of the widespread use of the iPhone and iPod Touch apps, a new vocabulary-building game could be just the thing to help increase any student’s SAT scores.
