For your reading pleasure....

The following two items appeared on other people's blogs yesterday, and they're fantastic -- you gotta read this stuff.

First, Jodi posted a link to this great article by Josh Swiller, a CI user who taught for awhile at Gallaudet, author of The Unheard:  A Memoir of Deafness and Africa.  We saw him speak at the CI convention in Sturbridge, MA, summer of 2009.

Second, Susannah put this up.  Pithy, hilarious, validating -- a must-read:

She nailed it! It's amazing how EASY it is to go somewhere without kids. Those car seats must eat about an hour of every week. Plus I only can stand to stop one or two times because the in and out of the car... Sheesh.

I think the person who asked the question is probably too self absorbed to read/understand the response, but I sure enjoyed it!

After dropping Matt off at one preschool (complete with chocolate bars for his teacher's birthday), then driving across town to Nolan's preschool, going to a Mother's of Preschooler's meeting, driving across town again to pick up Nolan, then driving the OTHER way across town to pick up Matthew. Then speech therapy, laundry, calling the hospital, insurance company, and doing a craft activity with the kids.

Let's see- where did my day go? I love that article!
