New Fave-o Site

Get a cup of good hot chocolate, put on your comfy clothes, and settle in with some non-rushed time to check out Dan Drinker's site. I can't even tell you how much I love watching these videos and reading what his family has written about him. I feel like I want to tune into the Dan Drinker 24-hour channel or something.

Dan is a young man with DS who is living and loving life, and his younger brother Will captures much of it on video. It's priceless, in my opinion. I just love it. Check out the blog, watch some videos, tell them that you've been there. I wish this guy lived near me!

The most recent post, about Breaking Up with Christine, is funny and poignant. Here's a couple of my other favorite videos so far... I've still got more to watch!
His 7th Prom
A Basketball Date with Sarah


  1. I've been watching these! They are great!

  2. I discovered these myself yesterday. I love the music video of him growing up with his brother. It is so sweet. I can't wait to watch them all!

  3. Thanks for the blog love BK! Dan is out to dinner but will be thrilled to hear all your kind and encouraging words. Stay tuned for more! Love your blog.

  4. Hey, guess what?- Dan does live near me! Though, I don't know him. How cool is that! Thank you so much for pointing out his blog, I love it! I can't wait to read more!

  5. Yes i have been addicted to Dan and Wills videos for a few weeks aren't they awsome!!

  6. Michelle--Addicting, a little, right?!?

    Sevenfries--I've yet to find one I don't like.

    Will--Hi!! Thanks so much for coming by!! I feel like a celebrity has graced my humble blog. :o)

    Val--No fair, he lives close to you!?! I'm coming for a visit!

    Kari--I'm tellin' ya... it IS addicting. It's probably good I don't live near him, or I'd be wanting to just hang out with him all the time!

  7. Am absolutely in love with Dan :-) He's fantastic!!

  8. Mrs. Wibbs--He's pretty darn great, right?!?

31 for 21: What to say

I have encountered plenty of people who ask "How old is she?" when Braska and I are out together here and there. They always guess her age about 5 months younger than she is, but that's ok, since that's what size she is. I have said several times that I can imagine it will bother me a bit more, although still not a huge deal, when she turns one next month and I see their reaction to that, as she still is in her car seat/carrier when we're in a restaurant or in a store since she doesn't sit up. Today, I met some friends for brunch. The waitress was a nice enough, very young girl, and she started cooing at Braska right away. That's nice. I don't mind, Braska likes the attention, and I'm proud of my cutie. The waitress asked her age, and I told her 11 months. She then said, "But she's not walking yet?" as she noticed that she was up to the table in her car seat/carrier. I just agreed and said, "Not yet." She said she h

Oh happy day, Less question mark!

As a follow up to yesterday's post, I got word today that we will NOT be assigned to the new guy, but we will have an experienced coordinator after all. I feel SO much better. I also learned some other info today that made me think I still have some kinks to work out, so I'll be taking care of that this next week. I'll be SO glad when this transition/IEP stuff is behind us. I want to do the very best I can, but there's part of me who wants to just hide and let it all happen without me.

Kinlee's doing great. She's sleeping, she's eating, both at appropriate intervals usually. Overall, things are good. Unfortunately, but quite honestly, I'm having a hard time with the same things I dealt with after Braska. For those of you that were around then, it's not as bad, but it's not good either. I call it a postpartum anxiety. It's not a depression, it's like panic attacks. Freakouts, if you ask my husband. They just hit out of nowhere on Friday morning, then periodically I get hit again. It's horrible, let me tell you. I can't explain it, but it is no fun. Friday night I wasn't able to sleep one little bit, well, maybe an hour total between all the attempts. I was a total wreck. Saturday I tried to nap several times but couldn't sleep again. So last night, after having gone home on Friday evening, my mom returned again to help out. I was able to sleep last night, finally, though I haven't been able to nap today.
