Wait ’till they get a load of me [us]…

My long-legged thoroughbred has made my heart sing again! The Director of Residences at Nat’s school has been running with Nat and another kid for weeks now, working them up to three miles. No surprise, right?
Well, today Nat was signed up for a 5K race, on November 22. My Sweet Guy is going to run to raise money for a wonderful cause, Best Buddies. Nat, knock wood, is growing in leaps and bounds, literally and without Early Intervention, way beyond the alleged closing of that tiny, cruel window known as Birth – 3, or the period of The Elasticity of the Brain.
Folks, Atypical Development means just what it says. Any doctor or professional that begins a sentence about any of your children with the words: “He will never…” Tell them to see me. Better yet, I will introduce them to Nat.
