I know I have talked about both these things before but I wonder if there is a direct correlation between startle reflex (moro reflex) and tight muscles or vice versa. Continue reading
Recently, I had a moment of clarity; we were at an annual celebration, an event my family and I have attended for as long as I can remember. I realized I shouldn’t feel honoured to be simply added to the guest list, rather I should do what makes me feel happiest.
I have decided that I need to realize if events are worth it to attend; sometimes they just zap my energy which can and does impact me for the next few days; this can be annoying. Sore muscles because I emotionally (and sometimes physically) outdo myself. Continue reading
I am going to contribute to Laura’s Blog for two reasons. One is that I like to write and the other is that I have a lot to say about being the mother of a head strong young adult who has lived a life of difference. I know that I will be jumping around. Sometimes I will be current and other times it will be memory. Continue reading

As a kid I had a friend, he and I lost contact somewhere in our educational journeys, as we ended up going our separate ways and found ourselves reconnecting online. We met when were five years old and a few years later ended up being in the same class.
One winter’s day, he decided at recess that it would be fun to take me to the top of the music portable ramp and let me go. Details between us from this point forward don’t agree but here is how I remember the events happening.
Releasing me at the top of the ramp my chair raced down, hit the snow bank at the end of the ramp which sent the front wheels further into the snow and then me flying face first into the snow with my manual chair coming to rest on top of me. He then being like all of seven walked off entertained by this joy ride. I don’t recall how but he was in trouble with the school. Continue reading
