I am logged on as ARGH but I am his sister and mother of the beautiful boy that appears many times on this site. What you did not know, as he intended it that way, is that my brother had Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) as well. He adored his niece and nephews and it broke his heart to know that Lucien would face many of the same challenges as he had. We lost my incredible brother on June 10th to complications of SMA and we miss him terribly. The woot fun, the crazy contests, and especially the community was a big part of his life for quite some time. It is so touching to peek on here periodically and see you unknowingly honoring him the way you have by keeping the SMA charity thread alive. Thank you and blessings to you all.

PS I would post an updated picture but I am not near as savvy as my brother and do not know how. If you are want to, e-mail me and I will send one to be posted.

Be sure to click on the link with the last duck. Pure ARGH!
I dare you not to laugh.

































OK, did you go check?
Did you laugh?

Same ones, only he didn't need the bar, his toes were turned out. I wonder if they made him flat footed.

They were made famous with the daily cry
"Mom, he's kicking me with his prescription shoes!

How did they turn into sour teenagers? Well, at least she is coming out the other end into real adulthood.
These are the two pictures I look at when they do things like call at 4am and say stuff like " I can't sleep, what should I do?"

The other famous statement from early childhood was "Mom he is climbing the wallunit and he is throwing things!"

They were pretty calm kids. Thank goodness!

On a different subject, remember pretzel/candy cane girl? Well, her sister hair girl has been popping up for the last few days on the today's woot page. She's driving me nuts! Hair girl must go!

I'm sort of glad she showed up, because I was sure I saw a dark haired Hair girl, but then she was gone.
That is what I saw. I hate her too!
