Welcome to Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid

Therapy and sanity for ordinary parents of special kids.

A Positive ADDitude

At the risk of sounding like shameless self promoters, or two bloggers desperately seeking new material, we wanted to share with you this wonderful article in ADDitude magazine, which features Gina and her daughter Katie on the cover. Gina was thrilled, as she’s always looking for mother/daughter bonding opportunities.

“What do you mean you won’t join the mother and daughter bowling team with me?”

“Mom, you’re a freak.”

Katie, on the other hand,  was a bit more cautious about the whole thing.

“Oh great, now I won’t be able to go to the mall without people recognizing me.”

“Ah Kate, it’s ADDitude not Cosmo,” said Gina.

Many of Gina’s friends and families were surprised about the whole thing, including Patty.

“That’s not fair. You don’t even have ADD. You’re just riding your daughter’s ADD coattails to fame.”

Nonetheless, Gina is thrilled and honored, though she’s trying desperately not to let all the ADDtention go to her head.

“Mommy why are you standing in front of the mirror with the fan blowing on your hair?”Katie and Gina on the cover of ADDitude magazine. Katie's cute when she's not sleeping.
