What Does a Typical Day Look Like For Us?

Gifted Traits or Twice Exceptional? 

When I started this blog I had written a post that stated when I found out Madison was gifted I rejoiced, because it meant that she wasn’t crazy. She had a lot of traits/quirks that caused problems in school. We tested her later through…
