Is Autism Something That Needs To Be “Cured?”

Posted by David on December 27, 2012 in Autism, Parenting, Stone |

I have written quite a bit about Stone and our adventures with Autism. And I’ve also talked a lot about the various therapies we’ve had him in as well as the supplements and other treatments we’ve tried – all in an attempt to help him improve his speech and social development. In some therapy offices […]

Hope for the Holidays – How Stone Gave Me The Best Christmas Present Ever

Posted by David on December 25, 2012 in Autism, Parenting, Stone, Twins |

“Hope is a waking dram” ~ Aristotle Tears welled up in my eyes as I sat down to talk to Renee about Stone in early October. “I think he’s regressing,” I told her. We had noticed a decrease in his use of speech as well as new unexplained behavior – spitting – at school and […]

Three Generations of Giants Fans – A Father’s Day To Remember!

Posted by David on June 21, 2012 in Baseball, Giants, Parenting, Twins, Ty |

I wrote earlier about how excited I was to take Ty to his first San Francisco Giants game when they were in town over Father’s Day weekend to play the Mariners. Being able to share that experience with my own Dad (who took me to my first Giants game 40 years ago) made the experience […]

A Father’s Day Post (and Thank You to Dad)

Posted by David on June 16, 2012 in Life, Memories, Parenting |

Since I started this blog a few years ago, I’ve had an opportunity to share about many parts of my life – and thank many of the people who have had an impact on it – but up until now, I haven’t given my Dad his proper due. So it’s only appropriate that on Father’s […]

Road Trip With The Twins To Leavenworth

Posted by David on June 4, 2012 in Autism, Parenting, Travel |

Yesterday I took the boys on a spontaneous trip to Leavenworth. The goal was twofold: 1) to give Renee an opportunity to rest and sleep as she had Lasik surgery on Friday and didn’t sleep well Saturday night due to the goggles she had to wear (to protect her eyes) and 2) the weather was […]

A Special Sunday

Parenthood (and life for that matter) are full of memorable moments that make the process that much more rewarding. Whether its a first step, word or trip to the zoo, there are those magical experiences that we never forget. I was lucky enough to have one of those moments on Sunday with Ty. When he […]

How do you manage stress?

Posted by on January 6, 2011 in Life, Work |

Stress is a condition that seems nearly unavoidable in our society. And it also seems that it’s become even more prevalent¬† the past 10 years – I’d like to think its simply tied to having more “grown up” responsibilities such as kids, home mortgage, etc. but I think its more than that. Certainly the past […]

Brave New World: No more Little Einsteins

Posted by on December 1, 2010 in Autism, Parenting |

I have written about how much Stone loves the Disney cartoon series Little Einsteins. It has been his favorite (and really only) show since he was about 2 years old. Trying to be good parents, we used our DVR to record as many episodes as possible so that he would have plenty to choose from […]

Busting Autism Myths – Affection and Interaction

Posted by on November 28, 2010 in Autism, Parenting |

Like most people, I really didn’t know a lot about Autism before learning about it first hand through Stone. But I’ve learned a ton – and continue to learn – through books, websites and of course personal experience. Although Autism awareness is gradually growing among the general population, I think that many perceptions are still […]
