Cutz For Guys has had great success in working with children with special needs, you can call ahead and let them know your child’s needs or talk to them when you get there. The staff are patient, engaging, thoughtful and will work with your child to make it as stress free as possible. They have TV’s for distraction and lollipops too!

This trip, we had a lot of extended family members to see, some we haven’t seen in a long time.

Can you believe it is July! This picture was taken as we celebrated the end of Middle School at Busch Gardens. He saw some peers taking pics in groups, we weren’t in one, and he said to me, “let’s take a picture mom”. My heart kind of melted. I will hold that forever. Such a simple moment, that so many typical parents would think nothing of, a milestone for me.
