On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

Here's some shots from our most recent visit with Sissy.

Where we went


I wasn't kidding when I said Georgia had gotten a lot of rain


And we're walking, we're walking ...


Ordinarily I wouldn't let the children torment park geese, but this was too funny to pass up



Hold the phone. What is Aspie Boy reading? Does that book say Peter Pan by J.M.Barrie? Why yes, it does! No, this wasn't from our outing with Sissy. This was last night. Aspie Boy scoured the shelves of books I have and snatched this one off. "MOM! You have "Peter Pan"?"

"Yes."

"WOW! Can I read it?"

What was I going to do, say no? This would be the same child that doesn't read anything voluntarily that isn't in comic book format. So yes, here is my proud mama moment for you to enjoy (I believe if I turned the camera on myself at this moment, I would have had a picture of my enormous toothy grin!!!)

That's a great shot (and anecdote) of enjoying the book. Hooray for reading... and hooray for Peter Pan! If he wants more after he's done, there's a novel out that's based on Barrie's own idea for more adventure. Click here to see.
BELIEVE!
