Back to School

The start of school is always a stressful time for any student or parent if an IEP or 504 is involved. The best way to navigate this is an intro letter. I now do this every year. Teachers love this. Teachers don’t always receive IEPs and 504s until the 1st day of school. Often times, […]

Death by Social Media

This post is not a review, but I feel it is a very important subject. There’s a a couple of wrongful death suits against TikTok because of the deaths of 3 young kids who did TikTok challenges. I also know there are attempts of suits against YouTube for for similar incidents, but most of those […]

Money Makes the World Go Round…

This may sound like the most cynical title, but we know it’s true. There are countless poems and songs with this very line in it. Lets talk about teaching special needs kids about money management and financial responsibility. I know many parents’ goals is to help foster independence with their special needs kiddo so they […]

We’re having a heat wave…. but not a tropical heat wave.

School has ended. We unfortunately lost our older dog, Chessie, to a brain tumor. I won’t get into the specifics because it will make everyone cry, but I just wanted to explain my further delay in writing.

Another Hiatus… 6 Weeks of School Left

Since my last post, it’s been difficult to do any reviews. To be completely honest, we haven’t been playing many games. It’s been a struggle to get Thing 2’s grades up from the 1st semester so she could participate in the heavy duty band competitions (no pass/no play) and keep the grades up, while not […]

Let’s Talk Dirty… Laundry

Special needs families often come across issues regarding laundry, sometimes it’s contact allergies, but the most common complaint is odor.

Games Graveyard and Thing 2

Christmas is over. We got a bunch of new games we don’t have room for. That means we need to stop getting games. Yeah, no. We retire games. Some games are packed away for future grandkids that we can’t part with because they have sentimental value, but the kids have all outgrown, others we pass […]

The unexplained explained – hidden insurance perks for your special needs kiddos.

It’s the end of the year and the holiday season, you know what that means? Insurance policies change! You thought I was going to mention something fun, didn’t you? Bah Humbug… a majority of the plans change around the beginning of the year, as I’m sure you’ve heard/seen on tv, the radio, or any electronic […]

Can’t catch a break and other holiday antics.

Thing 2 has had a setback, again. We believe it was triggered by a huge cyst in one of her sinuses, which turned into a massive sinus infection and another ear infection. Not to mention all the antibiotics and steroids. We are hoping to have it drained in the near future. Poor thing is dealing […]

Happy Birthdays and Birthdays the Beginning

I was recently reminded of this game when my dad and I were talking about Spore because one of the kids was playing it. This, of course, led to a conversation about various evolution theories… In the blink of an eye, something happens by chance – when you least expect it – sets you on […]
