A piece of advice you probably already know ...

Never, never try to wear your kids out! They'll kick your ass every time and be begging for more. We went to two parks today, plus a journey of exploration down a bike trail we hadn't been on before. We played soccer with some neighbor girls in the open field near the house, wore out the swings, and ran around the playground with some other kids who were there. I'm ready to crawl in bed before seven o'clock, and my daughter just said, "Hey Mom, can we go to the pool after dinner?"

  • I would've taken them to the pool earlier so that you can nap and tan in the sun while they tire themselves out. Then, pop a 5-hour energy drink. Just in case anyone is wondering, I also think they are immune to the sleep effects of Benadryl. I gave some once when the 8 year old had an allergic reaction to a pet and not even a single yawn!

    This is a good resource to learn about the many things people can do, despite their vision problems.

  • You disgust me, Crafty. Nobody taught you any damn manners, did they?

    It's one freaking thing to ask her questions about her disability out of sincere curiosity. It's totally different the way you do it. Geeze.
