Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

More March 1

Come on Mom, stop taking my picture!

This is what Nicholas calls his "Umizoomi" car, you may remember it from the summer?

To refresh your memory......in case you have forgotten.
Funny how you never know which toy your children will covet!
We have had this mini vehicle for about 10 years! 
For some strange reason, this little yellow car has earned a lot of mileage!
Perhaps we should consider purchasing some all season radials?

March 1

It is the first day of March and the first significant winter snowfall for the New England area.

A very unusual occurrence.....


It is not a nor'easter and only a few inches of snow is expected to fall, not exactly a whopper of a storm.

The boys have had no snow days this year! Boots, hats, snow pants and gloves have not been touched for much of the winter. Ski areas and sledding hills, deserted.

Our town will rarely call off school unless we are expected to receive a foot or more of snow. Today was no different and the boys were disappointed that they had to go to school.

They have their snow gear ready however, and are anxious to get home and play in the heavy, wet white stuff.


Nicholas ready to go.
