Welcome To Our Secret World

  • Cooper Updates at Age 3 1/2

    I realized that I haven’t done an actual Cooper update in a long time. I tend to get very caught up in how I feel about all of this and… Read More

  • There Is No More Hiding

    Coopers quirks are showing more every day. There is no more hiding behind age. He is the size of a 4-5 year old. He’s also so loud that blending in… Read More

  • It's Not His Fault Kate

    Last night Cooper refused to eat dinner. (What’s new, right?) There was kicking, screaming, head hitting, throwing, etc. The whole ordeal lasted a little over an hour. I got it… Read More

  • I Call That A Victory

    We had a victory and an epic fail today. And all in the 3 hours after work. Nothing like cramming a full day in a few hours. Cooper is afraid… Read More

  • I am Jealous of My Own Son

    Life has been crazy lately. And again, in a way, I love it because I don’t dwell on the little things. I ran a half marathon yesterday and I’ll tell… Read More

  • We've Lost Control at Home.

    When we bring the boys to a store we know that Cooper is a wildcard. And if you saw us you would probably have two thoughts….1. That mom is freaking… Read More

  • The Lesser Evil

    When Cooper was (mis)diagnosed with a moderate hearing loss in both ears at age 2 I thought the world was ending. Dramatic…YES. But, I am an honest person and that… Read More

  • The Preschool Plan is in Place

    I can’t even put into words how great Cooper’s teacher is and how amazing his IEP meeting went. I fell in love instantly. She was the perfect combination of  calm, fun,… Read More

  • I Can't Make Cooper Play

    If you follow my blog you know that I have SEVERE anxiety over the fact that Cooper won’t play with me. Sounds funny, right? Case and point. We went to… Read More

  • The IEP Meeting

    I have been  hiding out. And insanely busy. I can honestly say I sorta like when that happens because I don’t dwell on little things. Like dirty houses or unfinished… Read More

  • Updates and Cuteness Overload

    Just a few updates. Cooper has had a couple tough therapy appointments. Speech and OT were a bust this week. But one positive is that we were able to redirect… Read More

  • Throwing

    We are having a SERIOUS problem with throwing. And by serious I mean dangerous and annoying and frustrating and exhausting. Cooper throws everything. Whether it be a toy, food, sand… Read More

  • I Love You. I Always Have. Even The Things I Don't Like, I Love.

    Yesterday morning I was running around getting ready for work. Running late as usual with a million things to do. Cooper was watching Thomas and my husband and Sawyer were… Read More

  • I Thought I Had More Time.

    I am spiraling down fast. I’m finally seeing it. The behaviors. The rigidity. And it makes it hard for me to breathe. Jamie was on a fishing trip so I flew solo… Read More

  • Tough Conversations

    Today the school psychologist came to our house to do the final in-person evaluation. Our IEP meeting is set for the day after Memorial Day. We are so damn close. The… Read More

  • Playing Pretend is Silly Mom

    There are so many things I didn’t know before this whole special needs journey started. Things I don’t want to know actually. For example, I never knew the importance of… Read More
