June 30, 2012 8:55 PM by Devon Alley
I'm not going to lie -- watching A. slowly become a teenager has possibly been one of the hardest things I've ever done in my parenting career. The moodiness, the surliness, the attitude, the drama -- my patience doesn't feel like it has the endurance Read More...

In these snippets from the archives, I delight in the nuances of my daughter's personality and some of her autistic quirks. March 7th, 2004: I've spent tons of time outside today, breathing the mountain air, listening to frogs and birds. I walked down Read More...

June 6, 2012 9:53 AM by Devon Alley
Our summer vacation has started off with quite the bang. First of all, I was impressed with A.'s final grades -- a couple of A's, a few B's, and one C in math. She was also recognized at her school for an achievement award in Band. From the way the award Read More...
