Oh, and on the creepy toddler front…my son suffered a catastrophic event when he was an infant. Two years later he started talking about my dead aunt and grandmother when we looked through the photo albums my mom had just mailed up. He had never seen them…called them by their pet names. Like they were buddies from way back.

He also claims to remember the paramedics working on him although for many years he called them the space aliens.

He was 6 weeks old at the time.


I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
