My daughter and over a dozen of her friends sat in our basement Friday watching John Hughes movies (specifically Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club). They referred to this event as “Oldies Night.”
What do you get when you add one dog to a teeny tiny back yard filled with layer upon layer of snow during an unrelenting winter? Ask my son. I sent him out to poop scoop from the recent big melt. He will never be the same.

I love Cooper.
If you haven’t read this article yet, do it. I found this story about the journey to communication between a boy (now a man) with autism and his family to be both inspiring and enlightening.

I will carry that understanding with me now. It will make me a better, more empathetic human. What a gift.
