Bathroom Operas and Essays about Heroes
September 30, 2010 9:56 PM by Devon Alley
Sometimes, A. thoroughly amuses me. For example, she just got up out of bed (like she does several times each night before she finally falls asleep), walked into the office, and asked me how long Highway 11 is. (Highway 11 was the subject of a series Read More...

Sometimes, You Just Have To Laugh.
September 28, 2010 8:35 PM by Devon Alley
I know that I spend a lot of time in this blog lamenting major issues, worrying over details, expressing my concerns about A.'s ongoing development, and analyzing daily struggles. This past month, especially, it seems I've been focusing more on the negative Read More...

Learning Patience and Taking Pride
September 23, 2010 7:49 PM by Devon Alley
As expected, we ran into a rough patch with A.'s behavior at school this week. What was interesting about the rough patch of behavior, however, is that it seemed entirely contingent on a change in the reward system they had set up at school for her. One Read More...

Bad Days At Church
September 17, 2010 6:00 AM by Devon Alley
The most recent and perhaps the most concerning issue for me has been the difficulties A. has been having at church so far this year. The older A. gets, and the quirkier and more interesting her personality becomes, the more I feel it is absolutely imperative Read More...

Bad Days At Home
September 16, 2010 4:53 AM by Devon Alley
A.’s recent bad moods have had a negative impact on life at home, as well. Whenever A. has a bad day at school, she ends up bringing home a ton of homework that she has to tackle, since she is usually given time throughout the day to work on this but Read More...

Bad Days At School
September 15, 2010 6:11 AM by Devon Alley
As you may remember, A. started out the academic year at her new school in high spirits, and it seemed like she was making real progress in a very short amount of time. I was highly optimistic about the move itself and I thought A. was doing an incredible Read More...

Sometimes, You Just Have To Step Away.
September 14, 2010 6:06 AM by Devon Alley
My fiance, Thomas, often says that I tend to always want to write about the positive things that happen in my daily experiences with A., and that I really need to work more on dealing with the more negative aspects, not only for my own peace of mind, Read More...
