Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Dear Abby's Teacher

Dear Abby's Teacher,

There are so many things I want to tell you. There are so many things I want you to know about my girl. You see, you will have her in your care for as many waking hours as I do. SO because of that I want you to know her and love her and care for her just like me. I know you can't but I want you to. So here is what I want you to know.

  • My girl is a clutz. She falls A LOT. But the weird thing is she will look sturdy on her feet and then go ass over tea kettles. Be on the lookout for that. 
  • When she falls she doesn't like to be coddled. A hug or a squeeze and she's good to go. 
  • She sings... A LOT. It sounds cute at first but then it gets very annoying. Just humor her. She may be on broadway someday. 
  • She runs hot. She isn't necessarily feverish. She just runs hotter than most. 
  • Yes, she has a bald patch on her head. And NO she doesn't want to talk about it. 
  • If you feed her milk or eggs or blueberries or tree nuts or agave she might die. You think you'll remember but for one minute you might forget. DON'T FORGET. 
  • Sister needs to eat. All day. Every day. She metabolizes her food so fast that she can't go more than two or three hours without eating. 
  • While she knows she has Rhombencephalosynapsis she will not want it to be a topic of conversation. 
  • Although she is quite familiar with the nurse's office she will avoid it like the plague. Make sure she isn't keeping a bloody knee or egg on her head a secret. She will and just deal with it later. 
  • While the school makes her wear that helmet during recess she probably doesn't need it. The moment you think she doesn't let's start lobbying for that together. 
  • Most of all... take care of my baby. This is the kid who they didn't think would live. And when she did they said would never walk or talk. Although she is a freaking rock star she is still my baby. She still needs her hand held and she still gets tired easy. When she's tired she will fall like a toddler learning to walk. Protect her. Do it quietly but protect her. She is my heart.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
