Adam is at the park with Donna, his nanny. I'm trying to get him tired for a nap before going to his bubby's for Rosh Hoshana.

He was so happy today and at school. We are attempting to set up a facilitated play group here at the house with some of the kids at school - many of whom are non-verbal or have trouble with verbal expression. They have all gravitated to one another, this group, like they appreciate each other and they are still clear in their communication. They likely understand each other and appreciate the fact that someone isn't babbling their heads off so fast that they can't understand or keep up.

Henry and I spent some time together this weekend and we are both newly determined in eating better and losing some weight. This is refreshing, so I worked out for an hour and a half today, in my new attempt to lose 10 or more pounds.

Adam is back from the park, so it is time for me to put him for a nap. He is saying my name, mum, mum...It is time.
