OK, so I'm going to delve into learning about how to do stuff like pictures and underlining and links and all those blog-based skills. Here's to a new adventure in learning :)

Goals 3 : KNOWLEDGE
I didn't realize how much I had to learn. The vast scope of knowledge involved in parenting is overwhelming. I have read so many books and tried so many different actions and added some real winners to my parenting tool box. I have also gained a true appreciation for the uniqueness of each child. I realize how well I've perfected the skills of dealing with my high energy, high intelligence, low sensitivity kid. I'll never forget vacillating about showing him the video of a live elephant birth and deciding to pose the question to him. Describing the basics, I asked if that sounded scary or interesting. The top volume, top energy response was, "INTERESTING!" (This is not the child to need gentle descriptions or pause more than a minute after crashing himself into a wall.) I do have a great deal of knowledge about autism as well, but I see that as very much a side issue to my son's development. His mind his bright and willing to learn and I love being his buddy in the process.
