• TAKS

    Posted on April 30, 2011 by Chrissy Bernal in Sinny-Sized.

    Sienna took her first “regular” TAKS test this week. She was very nervous about it. She practiced and studied. To add to her sense of anxiety, she accidentally broke her glasses the weekend before the test. Eeks! We had to think of something. We took the glasses to be repaired, but they weren’t able to […]

    Posted on April 30, 2011 by Chrissy Bernal in Fitness Perfection.

    I have to worn you, I’m feeling a bit sassy tonight.  Those of you who know me, know that I’m not one for excuses, so hear goes my attempt at discussing this issue with a little restraint. 🙂 “Oh, you’re just one of those naturally thin people.”  I get really irritated when people say that […]

  • Travel Woes

    Posted on April 22, 2011 by Chrissy Bernal in Sinny-Sized.

    Transferred from Sinny-Sized: As Sienna gets older, the need for adaptive seating gets trickier.  She currently is in a toddler carseat in our personal vehicle.  However, at school she has been required to ride the Special Bus.  She earned a field trip to a destination about an hour away from her school.  At first, we […]

  • Sad Valentine’s Day

    Posted on April 22, 2011 by Chrissy Bernal in Family Matters, Sinny-Sized.

    Transferred from Sinny-Sized: As Sienna gets older, it’s starting to becoming more apparent to her that she’s different than her colleagues.  While her twin came home with a bag full of valentine’s and candies, Sienna didn’t receive any valentine’s from her peers.  She was very sad.  So, Mimi, Mommy and Daddy stepped in to make […]

  • Twin Comparison

    Posted on April 22, 2011 by Chrissy Bernal in Family Matters, Sinny-Sized.

    Transferred from Sinny-Sized: Hi!  Sienna’s mom here.  I took over Sienna’s blog for a minute to express some things.  Recently, I was able to witness the interaction between Sienna, her twin and a little girl who was the same age.  It sadened me to see the annoyance in the little girl’s face when she spoke […]

  • Look Before Backing

    Posted on April 22, 2011 by Chrissy Bernal in Sinny-Sized.

    Moved from Sienna’s old blog location: I’m starting to feel a bit more uncomfortable in crowds.  The other kids in my school are getting increasingly bigger than I am, so they’re having a hard time seeing me.  I was almost squished by a boy in the cafeteria who backed up without looking.  I said, “Hey, […]
