Avril Lavigne has a great new song out, “Fly”. It’s her first single in two years and is being released in support of the 2015 Special Olympics World Games. Take a look:
I’m probably going to have more to say about it later, but take a few minutes to go read this article about “good samaritans”. I don’t believe I’ve ever left either of my kids in a parked car in public, even for a minute, but I have done it a couple of times this year in our garage when he fell asleep on the way home from school.
We’re in a subtropical climate, so it was never cold when I did it, I left the door open between the house and the garage so I could keep an eye out, and the garage door was down in the unlikely event he was able to get out of the car without me realizing it. If a neighbor had seen that (our garage does have windows) and called the police, what would have happened next?
I love these cards designed for cancer patients. Some of them, like the one below, would work with only minor modification for parents whose child has received a diagnosis like, say, CP or Down syndrome.
Have you tried Stitch Fix? I’ve been seeing information about this personal styling service for at least a year, but I’m SO cheap that I wasn’t sure it would be worth it. However, I have so few non-running-wear clothes that I like that actually fit, and I HATE shopping so I decided to take the leap and see what happens. The fam is giving me a Fix for Mother’s Day. If anyone is interested (let me know by leaving a comment), I’ll dedicate a post to it in a few weeks. And if you’d like to try it along with me, I’d love for you to use my referral link and tell me what you think about your Fix.
Finale, the end of season show choir concert, is tonight, and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since Sarah Kate’s performing debut. She was given another small solo recently that we haven’t seen yet, and my mom and stepdad came into town for the event.
Unfortunately, as I type these Snippets on Thursday night, Sarah Kate has just gone to bed after icing her back, putting on Biofreeze, and taking two ibuprofen. She fell backwards and hurt her back on stage at the dress rehearsal. We don’t know how bad it’s going to be when she wakes up, but her balance is thrown off so easily that I’m worried. I’d appreciate prayers for her!
It’s IEP season! WOOT WOOT! Just kidding. I hate the IEP meetings like the plague, but by now, I’m pretty good at them. I wrote a guest post about IEPs for the Kid’s Creek Therapy blog this week, Four Tips for Surviving Your Child’s IEP Meeting.
Things are getting a wee bit tense (in a good sport way) around here this week. The SEC softball tournament semifinals are today and guess who’s still in it and facing off at 2pm today? That’s right – Auburn and Alabama. We’ll see where Sarah Kate’s true loyalties lie this afternoon. 🙂
