    I am happy about that awesome interaction, but I am worried about the road that child will face with those parents.

    it's a dark day, so I'm going there.

    I am sure its going to be tough. He has an older sister who was a frequent of mine (now in middle school), but before this fall I assumed that they lived with Grandma because that is who I always talked to and who would come and get her when she was sick. Their grandmother is a WONDERFUL human, so thankfully he does have a positive influence in life that I still bet he sees more often than his parents.

    I do think there is an underlying DD diagnosis with this little guy that the family might be in denial over, but him getting the help he needs here has made a difference.

    I had a little one just clean up the cracker crumbs she left on my mat.

    I had a kinder with an all over body rash. While we were hanging out waiting for mom, he was telling me all about his brain scans. He has epilepsy and gets frequent EEGs. He told me that at the last one the doctor said "You must be learning a lot in Kindergarten because your brain is getting bigger!" which was adorable, but then I started coughing(fighting a cold) and he said "Wow! You sound sick, you should find a nurse to send you home too!" I wish!
