Dear Friend, Watching my son, Bennett, take a test for the first time was incredibly nerve wracking. Since our pediatrician thought he might have a language delay, my wife and I had arranged to have him assessed through the Early Intervention Program overseen by Suffolk County. The evaluator came to our house and, after asking […]


Dear Friend, Bennett just celebrated his first birthday and we took him to the pediatrician for his medical check up. While Bennett is alert, social, and loves to play, the doctor expressed concern that he wasn’t saying “mama” and “dada,” which is a language milestone for one-year-old children. Just in case this was an indication […]


Dear Friend, What are you reading? I was asked this question recently during a party and responded, “Last night, I read The Big Red Barn and the night before, it was Corduroy.” Other than newspapers and the occasional magazine article, I only read “board books” these days. Since my son, Bennett, was born 11 months […]

Dear Friend, This past week has been a somber one at CMEE. Sadly, Henry the Bunny has passed away. It’s strange to walk into the Museum and not see him relaxing in his hutch or munching on a snack that a family had brought in especially for him to eat. While we all really miss […]
