WHAT THE KALE?! … Chips

Okay. That title isn’t really mine as far as originality goes. It belongs to a Speech and Language Pathologist that I work with at one of my center schools. Her name is Jennifer and she is by far one of the most amazing SLP’s I’ve ever worked with and has been a wealth of knowledge to me, as she also has a firsthand experience of having a child with SPD—Sensory Processing Disorder.  This past year was hell for me as I was very pregnant and having to figure out what was going on with my oldest son. Jennifer always lent me her ear, gave me her professional and mother-to-mother advice, would let me fall apart but then would piece me back together, and most importantly, gave me hope during some of the most difficult and emotionally draining times in my parental life. I am grateful to have met her and have her as a co-worker and friend.  …Did I also mention she’s a hoot?! I guess you could already tell that she has a pretty darn good sense of humor. Now on to the KALE!
