I'm It... I've been tagged!

10 years ago I was... A freshman at Utah State University dancing on the Aggiettes dance team!

Five Snacks I enjoy, in a perfect, non weight-gaining world:
1. oreo cookies
2. fudge
3. chips and guacamole
4. banana shakes
5. brownies

In the real world:
1. almonds
2. fruit salad
3. chips and salsa
4. apples and peanut butter
5. popcorn

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
1. donate to Charity, cliche, but true
2. start up Oral Deaf Education Centers in any state that doesn't already have one
3. Go on vacation with all my loved ones

5 jobs I've had:
1. Photographer at Kiddie Kandids
2. Dance Instructor
3. Dental Assistant
4. Substitute high school teacher
5. MOM!

3 of my habits:
1. make up in the car (only at stop lights, though!)
2. being obsessed with cleaning my kids ears (the audiologist told me that was bad)
3. going to bed too late

5 Places I've lived:
1. Las Vegas, NV
2. Logan, UT
3. Provo, UT
4. Los Angeles, CA
5. (starting in June) Gainesville, FL

Something most people don't know about me:
I competed in the Miss Nevada Pageant the summer before my Senior Year of high School

What is the one thing you would tell the parent of a child recently diagnosed with profound hearing loss?:
Take it one day at a time. There is so much to be grateful for, focus on that, instead of what is lacking. And very important...treat your hearing impaired child the same as you would a hearing child. Okay, so that was three things. :)

Hi there,
My newborn (and third son) was diagnosed with mild-moderate hearing loss one month ago. Just yesterday he had another BAER and he was diagnosed with severe-profound hearing loss. A friend at church sent me the URL to your blog and I really appreciated briefly reading through it. Thanks for your words of advice, i am completey overwhelmed and sad. It sounds like you have taught Logan some sign, what program is he in and what do you recommend I start with?
Monica, Seattle, WA
