Cameron and Max learned how to say "NO!" this week. Specifically, Cameron learned how to say "NO!" and then Max promptly followed (which led to a super fun weekend). I shot this video on my blackberry tonight. The quality is crap because the lighting is low and Cameron is jumping all over me, but the audio is loud and clear. Oy. Wish us luck!

November? Really?

When Fickle Feline gets quiet, you can safely assume that I am completely overwhelmed with life and just trying to hang on for the ride. I wish I could tell you I was out crusading against Autism, brunching with Dalton McGuinty to get him to see the light, but most days, I am just trying to keep my head above water and be a good mom. But I do need to update more, because there is a lot to say. I just prefer to be positive, so when I'm in a head space that is "cup is half empty" instead of my usual "cup is overflowing", I tend to get introverted and not want to put that negative energy out into the universe.

But... my kids did dress up for Halloween...

And there are a lot of good things to focus on:

- tomorrow I am going to get to meet a mom who brought her son to blueballoon after reading my blog.
- the trees in my neighborhood are beautiful (yellow and orange and red)
- Max is having a lot of progress in his therapy and starting to verbally request things without a visual prompt (huge!!)
- my custom Christmas cards have arrived and are ready for me to fill out and put in the mail (maybe that will help me get in the Christmas spirit?!)

More later - I promise not to take two weeks to update either!
