    You know this is the neatest community = We all have such openness and colorful lives....and our children pepper our world with spice while we temper the hot times with love and patience.

    So If your life was a book. What would you call it?

    The title of my book would be "Grasping at Straws: A mother's struggle to convince the school system and health care providers that her ten year old son needs more help than they are giving him"

    The title of my son's book would be "It's Not Fair!"-The story of a boy with a chip on his shoulder the size of Alaska...and suspended from school AGAIN...

    Mother of a ten year old diagnosis'd with ODD/ADD and Depressive Disorder at age five and fighting the school system ever since...

    My mom's friend named my book several years ago. He calls each email or phone call another chapter in the continuing saga of "As the Stomach Churns".

    I think we're on chapter 1,208,935 or so now.

    You know, Star, I actually started writing a book when thank you was about 2 or so, before gfgdom really hit. He had woken up in the middle of the night and I was rocking him, and remembering all the nights I had spent with Boo in NICU and later, awake, worrying, comforting, and the nights spent with thank you which had less worry (then) but... there was something about my kids needing me at night. I actually had gotten a couple of chapters done but then life intervened and ... I guess I just have 14 more years of material now, LOL.

    Anyway, the working title was "All My Nights Remembered".
