They sat there all in a row…

Staring…

Staring at me with dark glassy eyes…

Fuzzy little faces…

Cute button noses…

With ears like cookies you just want to take a bite out of…

They sat there all in a row…

Every size and color…

With bellies filled with fluff…

and tummies filled with beans…

No claws in sight…

Still thinking they just might…

They sat there…

All in a row….

Silently…

Intensely…

Motionlessly…

Accusingly…

All their glistening eyes…

All saying the same thing…

“WHO YOU CALLING TEDDY!”

.

.


 

.

Names are important… Be kind and thoughtful about what you call your toys…
(Cause… when you’re not looking they come alive…)

Kitty Train…

You really need to be careful what you say in front of your cats…
You never know how carefully they are listening…

And how they will use that information…

Kitty Cuisine….

I don’t really mind so much if the morsels show up whole…
but when the little ex-mouses appear….
only a half at a time… 

I get a little creeped out….

It’s purrrrrrfectly normal to have a cat that shares….

Claws of Revenge…

Kitty says… “Next time you’ll make that vacuum monster swim with the fishes like I told you… or else!”

Responsible owners don’t allow kittens to come to bed dangerously armed….

Happy “Caturday” to all my fuzzy friends and their human friends….

This week has been full of leaps…………

The biggest being that I decided to pull my son out of his regular class and home school him….
So, I am now my own “school district” coordinating special ed services and creating a new “un-schooling” curriculum for a brilliant boy who hates anything that involves sitting for long periods in “school”…

Today we are at the U of MN doing testing at the Pediatric Neuropsychology Clinic…. (Imagine a long pause here…..) I was just called out of the waiting room to come help my son. He was being evaluated and had a breakdown. The down side of that, is they won’t be able to do all the tests they want. The upside, they see exactly the  emotional behavior and difficulties my son struggles with almost everyday. 

End result… They are going to get recommendations for therapies starting Monday, instead of in 4-6 weeks. Finally… (with a tear and a sigh of relief…) we will be getting some HELP!

No matter what happens… it’s still a leap… and…

I’m silent screaming all the way down…………………

 

but it’s a happy scream….

.


 

.

It is so hard as a parent to sit and discuss your young child’s mental illness… (We so want to call it anything but an illness… we say difficulties, issues, problem… “no, my child’s not sick.”) …. Really, any illness is devastating… but the weird stigma attached to mental illness adds a flavor to that lump in your throat like no other… Even sharing it here… not knowing who of you out there reading this might feel about this… my sharing something so very private… is a kind of vulnerability I am not completely comfortable with…. and yet…
I think it might do some good.
Maybe for me…
maybe for others…
or it may make no difference at all….

I don’t know… (LEAP!)

.

I suppose this counts toward my “Family Friday” Post…. I may not have time later to do another… still screaming…

Day 19 of my September project…

Cool Water….

CicelyRobinLaing©2012.

.

Long days…

Tired hearts…

Weary souls…

Need cool waters…

A place to dip the toes…

.

.


.

No matter how hard the days are… you have to find a way to take care of yourself…

Today is one of those days… and this is one way I take care of myself…

I hope you have your own “cool water”…

.

Day 18 of my September project… today is “Thoughtful Thursday…”
