Stacy's Books

books, movies, and boy

2015, A Year of Sundays with Gage

I didn’t write about Gage on here as much as I would have liked, but did share as the time allowed.  Can you believe he turned 5 this year?!  He had some health issues so last month we started the SCD diet and I delved more into the world of biomed.  He started full-day Pre-K and loves it.  We did some fun activities and learned about 5 states and will continue that next year.

My 5 favorite Gage pics from the blog this year…

Favorite Gage post of the year was this one, Mothering a special kid can be lonely and then sometimes it isn’t.  It’s a little more maudlin than I usually let myself get on here and it was refreshing for me to show some autism honesty.  I try to keep things upbeat and I don’t see that changing, but in order for the picture of Gage to be a real one then sometimes the hard stuff has to be said too.  And I really appreciated the response I got from all of you.

I plan for much of the same in 2016 with more posts if time allows.  Thank you all for letting me share Gage with you!
