Welcome!

Well, here we go. Welcome to the first post on our new blog. We are starting this blog to keep an account of the Life and Times of Lil' Man.

Lil' Man is 5 years old. He has been through a lot in his short 5 and a half years. He has been through numerous hospitalizations, countless doctor visits, and probably about a combined total of a year in the car heading out to the various places.

We have just started homeschooling Lil Man. This should prove to be an adventure in itself - both for Mama and Lil Man! He is currently getting physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy at home as well.

If you are new to our story, feel free to visit his Carepage to catch yourself up. www.carepages.com OurLittleMan I am sure there will be a post at some point detailing his medical history, but until I get this blog figured out the Carepage is the best place to start.

We are mainly starting this blog so that family and friend can feel more involved in our lives. Lil' Man has an immune system disorder, and we are basically quarantined.

Some rules for our blog:

We welcome any and all comments, questions, etc. We may not always agree with one another, but attacks will NOT be tolerated here. If you cannot state your opinion without attacking another person, or myself, you will not be allowed back.

We have learned from some of our other blogger friends. If you want to leave a message, you will NOT be allowed to do so anonymously. If you can't stand up for what you have to say, it doesn't need to be said here.

If you notice, as of right now this blog is NOT monetized. In other words, we are NOT making money off of this. We are not asking for money from anybody. There are no plans to list our address publicly for the purpose of monetary gain. We will, however, take all of the PRAYERS and SUPPORT we can get.

Along the same lines, I do have plans to put a wish list for Lil Man on here as soon as I figure out how. Again, this is for family and close friends only Those who are normally asking , "What can we get Lil Man....What does he need?" As we are quarantined, we don't get to Grandma's or cousins like normal families. We don't have the opportunity to pass on wish lists for holidays. If you saw our house, it looks like Toy-R-Us exploded here. :) This is not a gift list for all of our blogger friends.

One last thing that I feel I have to address before it even starts.....because of the April Rose fiasco, there has been fallout on many other sites. We ARE real people, our son HAS real medical issues, and we are living life the best way we can with all of it. We are not perfect, never will be. We are REAL!

Now that we have gotten the hard stuff over with, lets have some fun! Thanks!
