Sorry I've been MIA - I had planned some fun posts on why we adore Pippi Longstocking (the original unschooler,) mask making, and the wonders of the postal service, but life threw a great big monkey wrench into our plans when our daughter had a seizure upon waking mid-way through the week.
So, after calming her down, getting hubby home from work, seeing our physician's assistant, and getting various tests scheduled, what did we do? Well, aside from hovering over-protectively over dear daughter, we went online with her to How Stuff Works and looked up information about MRI machines. She was still frightened and nervous when we went, but at least had some idea of what to expect. (And while mom and dad are biting their fingernails over what the results will be, she did think it was pretty cool to get to see images of her brain.)
