In case you didn’t notice the links at the beginning, yesterday’s post was inspired by my friend Barbara (also known as Dr. Boucher) who hosted her annual blog carnival today. The theme was music, so I felt I absolutely had to participate. You can thank her also because if it hadn’t been for her carnival, I might have made a really whiny post yesterday. . . if I’d posted at all.
Today I read through all the other posts linked in the carnival (and was glad I had some tissues nearby). I particularly enjoyed this post by Grateful Mama, about how music proved “the professionals” wrong about her daughter’s hearing ability. I also really liked this one, written by K Floortime Lite Mama, in which she says of her autistic son, “where we cannot go with words, we go with song.” Lovely.
