THE CAST OF CHARACTERS
CB: 18 year old, lanky blue-eyed girl with a sweet soul and good nature. She has been diagnosed with: Chronic Static Encephalopathy, severe ("low functioning") Autism, severe cognitive impairments, an uncontrolled generalized seizure disorder, and scoliosis. She is non-verbal, receptive language at about a 8-10 month old level, needs all self-care done for her, and she is still in diapers. She has a smile that will melt your heart.
PINK: 9 year old, sensitive, warm hearted, and an old soul. Prone to Super Drama and teen angst one minute, but is CB's biggest helper and cheerleader the next.
TINK 7 1/2 year old, dangerously beautiful and insanely smart little peanut. Watch out - she's a petite waif of a package with elfin eyes but she's got a BIG huge personality. Fiercely independent but cuddly and charming. Knows herself inside and out.
RELLA (AS IN CINDERELLA) 5 1/2 year old little linebacker. She's the boy we never had. Climbing, getting into mischeif, physically active. She's a cinderblock with arms and legs. An ADORABLE cinderblock I might add. Her eyes are the palest summer sky blue.
DR FABULOUS aka THE HUSBAND: Prefers a "low-pro." He's of course, fabulous.
ME aka DR MOM: Author of blog, stay at home mom, freelance writer, Doctor of Clinical Psychology who can't spell or sometimes speak properly. Just trying to get a shower every 5 days, stay sane, and keep my kids from needing therapy later in life. So far, haven't accomplished any of the aforementioned.
