In March, I not only celebrate Ethan and James’ birthdays, but the birth of my blog, “Sippy Cup Adventures,” which quickly became “The Clothesline.” Looking over a year’s worth of posts made me realize that I worry a lot. Take one of my first posts on "Sippy Cup Adventures," titled “Countdown to B-Day.” In this post, I practically have a meltdown over the thought of Ethan having a meltdown from celebrating his birthday at Pump It Up. I was afraid the kids, noise and excitement would be too much for Ethan, whom has autism. But all that worry was for nought--we had such a great time we threw similar party for Ethan and James this year. How was my mental state this time around? A little better—at least I didn’t hyperventilate. I’m trying to take my own advice.
