Drive Thru Party


One of the hardest things about the current situation is not being able to socialize as much.

One of Tad’s friends, Lane, had a drive thru birthday parade instead of a party.  The good news is that a lot of people joined the parade.  And Tad had one of his masks on him, so he jumped out of the car to actually get a picture with Lane.

I am making plans for Tad’s birthday, and I’m hoping that I can pull it off and have it be entirely outdoors so he can have friends over!

Tad Does Chores


Tad’s therapist H (and she needs a better name than just H for the blog, especially since she is going to be with Tad for LIFE) and I agreed that the teenage lug needs to start doing some regular chores around here.

He was not thrilled.  But he’s doing them.

He helps me fold towels – which means rolling up the swim towels and putting them in the swim bags.  And he vacuums.

He has to start somewhere, and this is a good place to start!

Lunch With Ms. C


One of the hardest parts of school closing so abruptly in March was the fact that the kids never got to say a proper goodbye to so many people.  For Tad, who is moving on to the high school, this was particularly sad.

But things were made a little bit better today, because he got to have lunch with Danny and Ms. C, who was Danny’s teacher in elementary school and Tad’s math teacher for the last three years!

Danny’s mom and I got to join in as well, and the boys loved seeing Ms. C outside of school, and being able to hug her was just the icing on their cake.

Thanks for meeting us for lunch, Ms. C!  The boys have missed you.
