In our little family, we prefer to celebrate the "minute" details of every day.
While these "minute" details may seem unimportant to some...they are everything to us.
We celebrate everyday miracles big and small.
And we plan on keeping it that way.
Sometimes you have to let the pictures tell the story.
Many of these photos are blurry...but that is the whole point.
I have (with sadness) decided to institute a few new "policies' on my blog. Mostly to protect my feelings, to be honest. This is my blog - about my family, and my life, and my kids, and my emotions and my parenting style. It's not a public forum to decide to unleash your venom on me or to list all the things you hate about me or to tell me I'm a "joke" and a "helicopter Mom" or that you feel sorry for my "typical kid" and my "man" and that I make a "big deal out of everything that is minute in the sense of the word." I probably shouldn't admit this, but it affects me a great deal when people go out of their way to tell me how horrible they think I am. What is the point, really? And when I know that I have accepted this commenter as a friend on Facebook...it makes me want to cry. You don't have to agree with me. I'm sure there are thousands of other bloggers out there that you can choose from that align with your way of thinking. Just move on. It really, really, really hurts my feelings.
I know it can be a pain sometimes to comment using your name or URL - but I am not allowing comments under "anonymous" anymore. It's a shame because I get a lot of great comments under the "anonymous" profile whether people sign their names or not. If you want to get a comment or a message to me, feel free to email me through the blog or head to the Chasing Rainbows Facebook Page where you can send me a message.
Speaking of Facebook. I have naively accepted any and all friend requests over the years from readers who are complete and total strangers. It doesn't take long (at least for many of you!) for us to become friends once that happens. But I am sorry to say, I will not be accepting any more random friend requests unless we have some type of connection or correspondence. EVERYONE is welcome to "like" the Chasing Rainbows page. I just ask that if you stop "liking" it, just quietly go and don't go out in flames with a hate filled rant on the page.
Who knew that a stay at home Mom who is trying her best to be a good wife, raise a special needs kid and the little brother who loves him, and bravely share it ALL in the hopes to help others could inspire such hatred?
