I’m Loosing It

It’s been a tough day and tonight has not been much better. There are a lot of things about CP that I’m good at handling as a father. But there are a lot of issues that come up with Haley that while not directly caused by CP are likely influenced by it. One of Haley’s [...]

Another Surgery

I’d like to write about Isaac’s Fro or Abby asking us why Mel and I are the ones who get to give the choices, and I suppose if I wrote more regularly I would cover some of those topics. Today March 31 2011 was a big day in my life. I decided to close the [...]

March 25 National CP Awareness Day

Today is National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day. For those who don’t already know the origins of this blog are my children and my oldest daughter has Cerebral Palsy. When I first started blogging regularly Haley’s Cerebral Palsy was much of my inspiration and it led to the 2009 Father of the year award which led [...]

You Did What?

I can just imagine the conversation I would have had with my dad had he known what I was going to do with my daughter this past week. “Kev are you crazy, she’ll break her leg!” “Kevin, there are just some things that aren’t worth it!” Now honestly I don’t know if he would have [...]

Doodle Turns 4

Yesterday was Abby’s 4th birthday. We had a great day but the funniest part of the day was when she woke up and wanted to see if she looked 4 years old. She got out of bed and ran to the mirror to see 4 year old Abby. My doodle is a hoot. Happy Birthday [...]

Poopy Face

I have  to admit, when it comes to teaching my children, or getting them to do something I really want done, I’m not above corrosion. I have one pet peeve, okay more than one, but one that really gets on my nerves and makes me cringe. I hate, hate, hate it when people don’t know [...]

Are You Allergic to Play

It’s taken me a while to get the opportunity to write this post as my wife was afraid it would paint her in a poor light. My hope is that it will not and infact I hope it paints her as awesome. To that end I need to give some background on my wife. She [...]

Dolls

I was working the other night and Abby my middle child was busy playing with her dolls. She does this often and she is always carrying them from one room to the next. She lays them down and I guess they are always doing something but usually when I ask I’m told, “We’re not playing [...]
