Reminds me of how my brother and I used to type 20-page-long programs into the really old computers, line by excruciating line, just to get a blip to float across the screen for a minute or two.  It’s one of those things where you go, “WHAT were we thinking?!”

Someday, hopefully soon, we are going to say that about autism.

Mamas Have Tricks for Picky Eaters!

Ro has never eaten a sandwich in his entire life.  He used to like grilled cheese before the diet, but now, he gags at the sight of untoasted bread with something in between!

A few weeks ago, Auntie Snackie (ooh, what an apropos nickname!) sent these nifty sandwich cutters to the boys.

They LOVE them, and I really use them everyday.  Get them here Mamas!
