The rules

There has got to be common ground. I have started this blog to give people a place to tell their stories...positive stories . Too often we are mired down in the hows and whys, causes and cures. It is easy to forget that we are talking about people. One of the misconceptions that I have run into is that because I have children with disabilities-I am not allowed to have joy-nor are my children allowed to be joyful. Some of the comments I have received after relaying a funny story or anecdote...well you would think I had been kicking kittens.
So here are the rules. Anyone can submit a story,OR just a couple of sentences,OR a list of five great things either about their children or themselves. It must be positive, There will be no discusion of causes, cures, treatments, etc. There are more than enough places for that. Mean people will be deleted. If you are interested in taking part in this adventure please submit your story to please no pictures or video-lets keep it simple.

blues clues

This one is from

My son is four and obsessed with Blue's Clues. He loves to "skidoo" everywhere. He loves letters and numbers, and he loves computers so much that he can sight read the word "Google."

He's also picking things up from other areas. He sings with me more often. He gave me kisses today. He pointed at his Buzz Lightyear pajamas and labeled the face parts for me.

I'm curious, because he's four-how does he feel about the whole steve/joe thing? Because my kids STILL like Blues Clues, and there are of course old Steve reruns interspersed with new Joe kids started back on Blues Clues the first season, so they do not care for Joe. If an episode comes on and Joe's hosting, they change the channel :)

Does your son get disinerested if the 'old' strange guy Steve is on?

My 2 year old sis, Grace, loves watching Dora the Explorer. There was 1 episode where Dora and Boots the monkey had to find the 3 little pigs. One of the pigs was stuck in a tree and looked like he was about to fall. The 1st time Grace saw this episode, she was almost in tears! She didn't know what was going to happen. Thankfully, little piggy was saved!

He loves to watch either host and he doesn't act confused about it or anything. He's not face blind, so I'm guessing he just doesn't care which host is there.

Personally I prefer Joe. He has a more interesting wardrobe and uses more ASL. Sorry, Steve.
