It’s here! She has a moving up ceremony tomorrow off campus, but today is her last day of school…at school. This kid has grown up so much this school year. She doesn’t look drastically different, but she is drastically different. More confident (not like confidence has ever been a problem with Miss Thing).

Today was our 10th wedding anniversary, I can’t believe how quickly that went. It feels like we’ve lived such a lifetime since our wedding day, but also…it was brief.

We’re celebrating in Mexico. This month is a whirlwind, with big, exciting things happening I’m not quite ready to announce yet. But I’ve also been planning and preparing for this trip, so I really haven’t posted much. I’m working on that, but for now. This is where I’m at.

Today is my actual birthday, but last Sunday we went to see Elephant & Piggie: We Are in a Play at the New Victory Theater. That was my birthday celebration. My mom pointed out that they were doing a sensory friendly performance, I saw it was the weekend before my birthday, and that’s what I wanted. No presents.

It was so gray and grim today. But even with the weather, it was a great day! Tuesdays are The Days around here. We already had a lot going on, but since the new year it’s gotten even busier. This is a good part of my view every Tuesday, just out the car window. And not always raining.

We got a puppy! His name is Hamilton, and he’s a 10-month-old maltipoo. He is the sweetest, funniest, cutest, most relaxed dog we’ve ever met. Read more on Meet Hamilton!…

Today was Balloon Day, and even though last year I vowed not to go back until Hannah was sturdy enough to do the whole thing without a stroller, and on mass transit, I did not stick to that plan. I love it too much.

Last Monday was Hannah’s first day. Technically the first day was right after Labor Day, but we were in Florida. Her school does a couple of phase-in weeks to start the year, and she’s only 4, so we figured if ever there was a time to take advantage of low crowds for our sensory kid, this was it.

This was such a great school year. A year ago, we were worrying about Hannah keeping up when she moved from the toddler to primary class at her school. We’d been through weeks of evaluations for the public school preschool special needs class. We’d talked to her school’s headmistress, all of her therapists. We knew we wanted her to stay at her current private school, but they don’t have any specificĀ programĀ for kids with speech disorders or developmental delays.
