A bit about Leslie4Kids

I have no idea how this blogging thing works. I guess it works something like this: I think. I type. I hit “publish” and ding…ding…readers across the globe know what I’m thinking about. I have some preconceived notions about this idea of blogging: it seems pretentious and  a bit self-absorbed. I’m hoping I don’t fit into either of those categories.

What I do know is this: I am a creative and sort of studious mom who has a few ideas on raising kids you might find helpful, practical, even entertaining. I love to decorate–especially kids’ rooms. That part of me often overflows to p) lanning (and decorating for kids’ Birthday parties.

A huge passion of mine is childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). You probably have never heard of it, but if you have–then either you or a child you care about very much has it. In fact, that is topic I really should be writing about. I have written over 100 pages of apraxia-related stuff. I have done a ton of research on it and have lived through two and a half long years of hearing my first-born sweetie grunt and point and eventually get to the point where she tells me, “No more talking, mom.” This kiddo can say all kinds of things now–some of which I wish she wouldn’t, “You dummy bottom head.” For some reason, pre-K humor is all about the soft-curse words with a little potty humor that they find hilarious. But, apraxia (CAS) is very real and very serious and I guess I should be shouting for joy when I hear my daugher call me a “dummy bottom head!” And I guess I should actually write about that today, too. Until next time.
