On Calvin Time

Those who know me well, know that I’m constantly stressed out about Calvin’s progress. I try to pull off the ‘I don’t care about Ages & Stages’ or ‘All in Due time’ approach to parenting, but I always fall short. When he was younger, I would always worry if he had enough words or smiled…

This is What We’ve Been Preparing For

Yesterday was quite a day. Calvin visited The Battery Atlanta (where the Braves play baseball) for the first time. We had our first visit from EMS (How we made it to 4 is beyond be!). And as I had my very first panic attack, I came to the realization that no experience, training, or degree…

What the Pictures Don’t Show

Let me set the scene: We’re in a restaurant with one of Calvin’s best friends and her family after an eventful afternooon at the reptile exhibit. Calvin is almost in full meltdown mode. He pushes his friend and crumples the coloring pages that she is trying to offer him to calm him down. He refuses…

Review: Week 12 of Homeschool
