READERS’ THOUGHTS ON MAKING CALGARY A BETTER CITY FOR
SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS
Tuesday, 29 March 2016
I know it's been a super long time since I've updated. As you can imagine, life with twins, a 6 year old, a full time mom and a dad doing stroke rehab is busy. I've but putting my energy into many different places, and at the end of the day I just want to chill, watch some TV, catch up on my chores, have a conversation with the husband, and go to bed. So that's what I've been doing.
We are in the throes of terrible twos. So much so that the days are marked by the brief moments of peace, harmony, and quiet play. Parenting is hard, and parenting twins is harder. Phoenix is wonderful by the way. She's still the easy kid and is doing well now that she is halfway though kindergarten. We are all looking forward to the full days that grade 1 will provide and can only hope that her aid time will remain the same, as I credit this for one of the reasons she is doing so well.
That's all I have time for now, so without further ado, here are some new pics of the girls:
