Go Irish

OK, so the picture came out poorly, but here's my dear husband over the moon excited about tonight's Notre Dame game.

Weeks ago, my husband burst through our front door clutching a white piece of paper.  He was beaming as he announced, "I have my January work schedule."

"Great," I replied.  "Did you get a day off work for the BIG day?"

He grinned, "Yes, I'm off on the night of the Notre Dame game!"

I couldn't help but chuckle as I explained, "The BIG day I was talking about was my birthday."

Chris shot me a sheepish smile.

Tonight is the night Chris has dreamed about for at least this season (maybe his entire life).  He is over the moon and back excited about tonight's Notre Dame game.  He's been clad in an array of Notre Dame garb all day...changing shirts once.

Today, Cooper found a way to really get under Chris's skin.  Anytime Cooper was irritated with his father, he announced his allegiance to Alabama.  I know I shouldn't laugh, but I couldn't help chuckling just a bit.

  1. Hello! I am enjoying your blog. A friend showed it to me. My name is Kathy and I live in Carmel. My son is mildly on the spectrum and I read 2 of your posts (The tricky thing about Aspergers and the post about sunday school) and oh my gosh, Those are all things I have felt and thought before. My son is only 4 and we're starting to enter the world of school and activities and I'm nervous. he attends the developmental preschool at Carmel. He finally was able to sit through church for the first time at Christmas. If you have any tips or advice I'd love to hear from you! My email is
