A tea kettle

Today I put on the tea kettle. I was up in my room with Cormac and he was wathcing TV. We live in a split level house. We were in last bedroom upstairs. The kitchen is down the hall and down 5 stairs. He says "oh, mommy, the tea is ready. I hear the kettle". Still can't believe what he hears. And trust me it was NOT quiet in our house.

Ok, while I am writing this Cormac just said "Mommy, you're a maniac!" Don't know what he is talking about!

I really want to start some sort of group for parents of kids with implants. I just don't know where to start. I talk to lots of moms of newly diagnosed kids who are sent my way from NYU or Summit Speech School. I would love to be in contact with parents of kids who are older than Cormac so I can have an idea of what to expect. I really don't have any free time but I would make the time to socialize with other families like us. It doesn't have to be anything all the time. Maybe a bimonthly get together for anyone who can make it. Just to bounce ideas off each other. Talk about our kids educations and what their school districts are like. Anyone have any suggestions on how to start it? Where to begin? I am in Northern NJ.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. We had the best Christmas yet. The kids were thrilled. New Years Eve is no biggie to us. It's always been amateur night so we never really got into it. Frank and I did stay up for the New Year but it was only because I got up to feed Calleigh at 11:30pm. Other than that we probably would have slept through it!

Calleigh's surgery is rescheduled for January 14th. I am hoping it goes off this time. Let's hope the other three monkeys stay germ free and don't bring home any yuckies from preschool this week. I am tempted to keep them home but they have been on Christmas break and we ALL need them to go back to school. :)

I am hating winter right about now. It is so cold and there is nothing to do with the kids. I hate being home all day with them because they get bored.

Happy New Year!

That is so cool about the tea kettle! Things like that never cease to amaze me either! I don't think it will ever get old.

In the past year, I've started a support group for families of children with hearing loss in south-central PA. I created a flyer, picked a date and contacted everyone I knew to distribute it: early intervention, Lucas's speech therapist, teacher of the deaf, the hearing-impaired classroom teachers, the audiologist's office, CHOP's HI listserv, etc. I started a group on facebook, and we created a yahoo listserv to send out information. It was a slow start, but we are up to 5 families and it's been great. I hope it continues to expand. I wish you lots of luck!!!

I hope that your beautiful baby girl's surgery goes off without hitch on 1.14!
