Taking a Little Break

I am sorry to write and tell you all that for the next couple of months, I will be taking a break from my blog.  On May 12th, my son was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia).  Some of you may remember, he is a police officer and each year he comes to my school each year during our Community Helper week.  He also recently got married.  So, for the next couple of months, all of my time and energy will be spent helping Jay and his precious wife, Brooklyn, with his fight.  If you would like to keep up with his progress, there is a Facebook page  and a Caring Bridge site set up for him.  One of Brooklyn's dear, dear friends has even set up a fund raiser for him to help with their expenses.  But all I ask is that you remember him in your prayers.  Thank you ALL and I will be back soon. - Karen

  6. My son needs something of a structure throughout the day. My wife and I want to enroll him in preschool so he isn't sitting alone playing with toys all day. Am I wrong or does preschool promote a great socializing resource?

    1. I agree with you100% ! I have to bite my tongue when parents tell me that their child "plays" with their younger siblings. A 3/4 year old does not "play" with an infant. Socialization is a huge part of a child's development and preschool offers not only that but many, many other things. Thanks for writing.

  10. In my prayers. My sister inlaw was just diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia last 2 weeks ago. She has gone under over 10 rounds of chemo already. Prayers, as I can imagine that is unbearable to watch your child undergo that. May God give you all strength and peace.

  11. I want to enroll my son in a preschool. It's my first one, so I don't know very much about it. I want to do a lot more research before I make a decision. http://www.alphababies.com.au/about-us
