Hold that thought.

When he was younger, I used to really fret about whether we were doing enough to help Conor.  When your child is newly diagnosed, all a parent hears about is how intensive early intervention needs to be, how you need to push hard hard hard right now to make progress.

Seriously, it's like giving birth all over again.  Push push push hard hard hard.  Oh, lady, not THAT hard.

So on days when I felt like we were struggling through quicksand, like we weren't getting absolutely anywhere, I would look at this card that I posted on my bulletin board.  I would take a deep breath.

And it would calm me, at least a little.
