A Kiss, a Book and a Dump

So my kid does something that’s really cute. Well, I’m his mom, so of course I think it’s cute. Each time that I ask for a kiss, he gently leans his big forehead into my head, shoulder, chest, wherever…and ‘kisses’ me. It might not be your typical big, wet, slobbery toddler kiss…but who wants typical anyway?! I love it. Makes my heart happy.

I love getting things in the mail. In the age of instant chatting, texting, messaging…snail mail is a welcome treat. I ordered this book a few weeks ago, and in the busyness that was Christmas and the holidays, I had forgotten about it. It was a nice surprise in the mailbox today. The author, Dan Kennedy, is a fellow POLP and has a daughter with achondroplasia who was born in 1992. Dan teaches journalism at Northeastern University in Boston and is a nationally known commentator on media issues. Right up my alley…awesomesauce. I can’t wait to delve into it tonight!


It’s been a few weeks since I dumped some phone photos…so here you go! Happy weekending y’all!


About Tammy

I am a single mother to 2 wonderful children, ages 1 and 5. My youngest was surprisingly born with a rare genetic condition, achondroplasia, which is a type of dwarfism. This blog is a glimpse into my crazy life as I wade through figuring out dwarfism and divorce while enjoying every second of my deficient domestic bliss.

    I will be interested to read your thoughts about Dan Kennedy’s book, it was one of the first books I read in 2011 when my daughter was diagnosed. It is VERY well written. I found it very thought-provoking; it actually made me deep dive into quite a few subjects I wouldn’t have tackled yet , but it is not over-powering, so I could still land at a totally opposing viewpoint for some of the issues raised by him. It’s a good read.
