Last Saturday, a 10 year old former student of mine suddenly passed away. I attended his funeral today.
Last Saturday, the body of a very local girl exactly Marvel Girl's age was found after she had been missing for a week.
Last Saturday, 49 people squished into my home for an Asian New Year's party that had in previous years included crafts, homemade dumplings, and a dragon dance. However, in previous years only 1 or 2 families attended. Last year we invited over 30 people and only 3 showed up. This year 49 were present. (Did I mention my home is quite small???).
Last Saturday, Professor X couldn't even make it through sitting on the couch during his own party. After 2 hours, he ended up in bed for almost 24 hours.
Last Saturday, an arsonist set several fires outside my kids' school. Luckily (?) only the greenhouse was destroyed.
The American Speech and Hearing Association acknowledges that I've been blogging since before it was even cool. 5 years and counting. One of the first Speech Therapy blogs. Just me and the dinosaurs banging rocks in Morse code to create informative/ emotional/ humorous/ or otherwise ridiculous blog posts.
This blog is a creative outlet and personal form of therapy. Show me some love by following my blog and leaving occasional comments. And chocolate. Feel free to send me chocolate.
Some things that may (or may not) make me unique: Evangelical Christian, adoptive mom, multiracial family, caretaker to disabled husband, Speech Pathologist, Ivy League graduate, dark chocolate eater, coffee lover, audio book nerd, P90x-er.
I've been featured in the ASHA Leader! Check it out here.
Old and not updated introductions to my family can be found here.
