I'll love the smell of writing history in the morning. More later. I'm off to New York for the day.

Hi Kim!

I just found your blog. I used to "see" you over at Commonbonds (and was so sad when you left -- several times you offered kind thoughts when I wrote in despair about my Teddy). How wonderful that you are writing! Is there any news about your book? I too have a novel on submission to publishers (no link to autism but my novel-in-progress has one!). Waiting is hard. . .

Anyway, I will continue to visit your blog regularly, now that I've found it. And it's good to get little snippets about your girls, which I always enjoyed hearing on Commonbonds. Hope they are doing as well as Teddy is. Next comment will actually be about your blog post.

Best regards,

Deb Vlock

I watched with no small amount of morbid interest a program called "supernanny" last night as it was about an American family with a 3 year old autistic boy and 4 year old twin girls. The British nannny and a Yanky doctor were trying to help the family out. Have to say the mother had no idea how to parent a "normal" child let alone a special one....ended up yelling at the telly and getting really cross. At one stage the 3 year old was out the front door to a busy road whilst the mum was completely unaware. She admitted it had happened befor and taken 15 minutes to find the boy AND THE DOOR WAS LEFT UNLOCKED. Another point she told her 4 year old daughter to mind the 3 year old in the front garden next to said busy road. I was left exhausted by my fury and praying this program was badly/strategicly edited and misrepresented the facts. Has it been on US telly? Is it any wonder we Brits have a view of Yanks being a bit dim?? Rant over. Your turn...

Amanda - The Spice Girls. Enough said.... ;)

Super Nanny looks for the biggest dolts/parents in America. Folks next to US just put in an above ground pool = NO FENCE! I'm panicked. Putting bike locks on the deck gate in the back "garden" (it's a yard, dammit!)

I WILL take Mary Poppins please. Send her straight away!

Kim I take no responsibilty for my countrymen but delight in our eccentricities! :) There are "reality" people and real people of course, just felt the need to vent my spleen....don't forget to remove any horizontals or foot holds when you put the locks on, if they didn't climb before it won't take long for them to start if they set their minds on that pool....I sympathise wholeheartedly
