  1. okay. i grabbed my coffee and headed there.

    i’m drinking hazelnut coffee, which i have mixed feelings about. when it’s brewing, nothing in the world smells better than hazelnut coffee. mmm. and i like having it in my mug…lifting it to my nose, breathing it in. but it just doesn’t taste as good as it smells. it’s fine, but almost any other blend makes me happier, taste-wise.

    this relates to nothing. but that’s entirely your fault. you suggested the coffee. now it’s kicking in…heaps of wordery ensue.

  2. Grabbed my coffee too – regular blend w/a teaspoon of Torani raspberry syrup 🙂

    Jess, starting a new year is always so stressful. Im anxious about what lies ahead – how will he do? how will I do? Where will we end up after this year? My lil guy started a new program in a new school. Ya wanna talk anxiety? LOL I went to Open House the other night and have great hopes for him in this amazing program. We are so lucky to have gotten him in. But another part of me is scared. Leaving the security of the center and being in a regular school, the new challenges and obstacles, can he do it? Can I dare to believe that what they say he will be doing by June could really come true? Im taking a deep breath… I’ll let you know when I exhale. 🙂 {hugs}

  3. it was beautiful and so well stated. I saved it to my “parent concerns and vision” file for next year — I just may borrow some of your words 🙂

  4. I just wanted to let you know what an inspiration you are to me. Your entire family is beautiful on the inside and out (including your wonderful parents who write awesome comments on here). I have been following your blog for about year now. I have a 2 1/2 year old son who is on the autism spectrum, but has not been diagnosed because we are waiting until he is 3. He is in early intervention and has made a lot of progress. I read all the other mommy bloggers that you have listed to the right of the screen and it has helped me out so much through the hard times. I admire all of you. I have been thinking of starting a blog, but a lot of times words just don’t come to me. I’m going to try to start a blog because I could really benefit from all of you mommy autism bloggers out there. I am currently pregnant with my second child (who will be a girl).

    I am very thankful for all that you women/men do for the autism community.

  5. lol ..

    you know, meredith, some people just approach things from and with anger. we all do this in our own way i suppose.

    i generally try to leave it be.
