Can you believe it is March already? I don't even remember February! Time seems to be flying, Spring Break is only weeks away and soon after that summer vacation will be upon us!! If things could slow down just a little, I would really appreciate it. I guess maybe I should wait for that summer vacation to come before I ask for things to slow down though.

Milestones that Matter
Last week, Marky was invited to a birthday party, for most parents with typical kids, this is not a big deal. For us, it is very exciting, it means that a child isn't affected by the fact that Marky may do things differently and can appreciate his charm and wit!
Well, this party brought us to another tremendous milestone, Marky went to the party, and we left! He stayed the 2 hours with his friends and he did fine! He followed guidelines, routines , sharing and even the opening of ...
Well, it's that time of the year again. When the cold and flu bugs are running rampant and spreading like wildfire. So, how do we fight these ever-pervasive little monsters that plague our children's bodies with aches, chills, coughs, fevers and a slew of other symptoms?
These are just a few practical, every-day tips, that may help save a few missed school (and work) days for your family.

It is Sunday afternoon and the kids are restless. What do you do? We know a place, the perfect location, in Old Town Arvada on Grandview Avenue called the D Note. Every Sunday the kids, from 1 month to 12 years old, come and enjoy music, both by listening to it, playing it and dancing to it. Parents relax at their tables, watching the kids dance and play together - great entertainment in and of itself. The children make new friends and greet some old ones. Some even make this a weekly gathering spot.
