Sorry I've been MIA

So much to process, so little time.  Dealing with this family stuff has been hard but I have to say, the separation (only 1 call since Feb) has been healthy.   In fact, I feel (emotionally) healthier now than I ever have in my life.  In addition to losing the emotional baggage, I've lost weight too.  18.5 pounds and counting! 

In other news, we had Dylan's IEP meeting.  It went well.  We got everything we felt he needed to have a successful year.  I wish every parent had our experience.  We walked out of the meeting happy, feeling like Dylan was the most loved child in the school.   I wish we could clone our child study team (or at least their attitudes) and send it out to every school in the nation.

My best friend says it's me.  It's my attittude that causes us to have such a positive experience.  I don't know.  I find it hard to believe that all these parents who are struggling to get their child the basics are going in with a bad attitude or a "you owe us" attitude.    I don't know but I wish I could figure it out.
