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.

Merry Fish-mas

If you are a long time reader of our blog, then you know my boys are SpongeBob SquarePants fanatics.

They are maniacal about their obsession.

The dinner table is often the preferred arena for reciting lines from their favorite episodes.

This bizarre behavior has not escaped the notice of Jolly Ole Saint Nicholas.

And so, the ever omniscient observer in the red suit brought them this ingenious invention:



We had a ball setting up the "absorbent-and-yellow-and-porous is he, pineapple-under-the-sea" environment.

This is by far, one of my better finds for Christmas presents. The boys loved it. It was very inexpensive and came with everything, except the fish.

Of course it is a good thing I accounted for the "Lisa Factor" and purchased two of the aquatic coral critters because one of them decided to check out early....thankfully before the kind hearted Nicholas noticed. Oy.
