Respite care? I have no idea what that is. I don't know how I feel about the idea of the government adding another entitlement program, to be honest. It'd be nice to have some kind of help from the govt (I currently don't get anything) but I have to wonder at how well it'd work. Seeing my govt at work taking care of people recently doesn't exactly give me any faith in it despite all the money it gets.

Sanity. Hmm.... I could joke about it, but I think I've gotten to a revelation about real sanity in the face of difficult odds. Insanity is when you let go of reality/normality because it's too hard. True sanity is when you hold on even when it doesn't make any sense. It seems to work out, usually. Or, I at least no longer care about whatever stress was happening back "then". Usually a good nap helps.

Sounds like your kid is brilliant! Congratulations! It sounds like your family worked well together to help develop that talent. Reading by 2 doesn't happen spontaneously.
