A Person’s a Person, No Matter How Small

“Underweight,” “Off the chart,” “Failure to thrive” - all of these I have heard in the past year regarding Sam’s size. For months I have been trying to get him to gain weight because he is not high enough on “the chart.” Oh, the chart, the all important chart. Last summer, [...]

“What’d He Say Wednesday?” and a call for Readers

What’d He Say Monday?

I didn’t have a favorite Sam quote from this week until we were going to bed last night, and then it was obvious.
