    Real friends

    Friends. Everyone needs friends. Real friends that care.

    I have written recently about Moo having friends over for play dates.  Since writing that, Moo has had over another boy from his class – let’s call him D.

    D is a great kid.  Prone to want to play outside with Master C and Scrappy but a good friend to Moo as they share a lot of common interests.  After his last visit, he invited Moo to come and play at his house. And without my involvement made the arrangements.

    I really struggle with raising my boys to have self confidence and security in who they are as individuals. Each of them has their own distinct personality and way of dealing with things. Master C is very sensitive. He sees everything in black and white. Grey isn’t not an option for him.

    I love Terrible Palsy.  It’s where I became a writer.  And although I may not have a huge following, it doesn’t really matter as I’ve had a place to chronicle my journey with Moo.

    There are still plenty of things to write about here.  My life is a source of stories…

    Flashback Friday

    Everything has changed so much since Moo came in to my life.  What I thought I knew about life back then – I knew nothing.  But even throughout his life, my views have evolved and changed.  The way I saw things following diagnosis, is not the way I see things…
