Dr. John Michael...making a house call...

"Ah yes, I hear the problem..."

"I can fix that..."

And if your patient is non-compliant...


Swinging good time...

It's been over two weeks since I last posted!
Mea Culpa!!

The weather has been off and on spring-like so the boys have been getting more outside time.

These two love to swing, climb, run, slide and laugh together.

It's hard to be grumpy when you get these kind of smiles!

Happy Spring!

Look at my handsome boy! When you use the words "Retard" or "Retarded" as a means of describing someone, something or even yourself as stupid or ridiculous, please think about John Michael. It is hurtful to me, Doug, Nic, Anna, Greta and someday, Luke, too. It's not a nice word and one day John Michael will understand what you are saying and his heart will be broken. I'll do my best to lift up his spirits as best as I can, but my heart, too, will be broken. The word is offensive and it isn't fair for John Michael or his many special friends to grow up in a world where it's okay to make fun of someone (even if not intentionally) because of their differences. 

If you use the word, please stop.  I won't judge you if you say it...  but don't be surprised if I gently remind you...

John Michael is counting on you to make a difference and so am I ♥
