E: Daddy, what is a diary?
Me: A diary is a book that you write about your life. You write about your feelings and what you do every day...that sort of thing. It's all about your own life.
E: Oh, OK.
Lily: Daddy, what is life?
I have three children: Ryan (12), Ethan (9) and Lily (6). One is autistic, one gifted and one adopted. This is a record of some of the amazing things they say and do. I try to stop and look around at least once a day.
