quote on memories

Your memory is a monster; you forget–it doesn’t. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you–and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory, but it has you!

by John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

    Dear Guinever,

    I saw your comment on the Thinking Mother about speech therapy, we got 3 times a week therapy for an Autumn for $50 total for my son when he was in first grade by contacting our local teacher’s college. My son was the semester project for a college student, her professor watched from behind a two way mirror and jumped in occasionally.

    The school jumped us to the head of the waiting list because we homeschooled, could come in the middle of the day, and had an older student (oh, juicy, juicy challenge for the college girl.)

    Earlier we had worked privately with a speech therapist who was home with her first child. I had to contact a cpa to ask how much she could earn without messing up her taxes, and we were well under the amount per year.

    You may not need to spend so much – although if you do, it is worth it when your child can be understood on the phone with grandma!
