MAXMOM here...

Dear friends,

You may notice that I have added an extra page to the top of this blog, entitled:

The past four months has been a really special, somewhat unique, experience for Toby and me.  For this reason, I have written the full account of our adventure. Some of you may have missed it, and some of my readers might perhaps like to read it again.

You can either scroll up to the top of this blog and click on:

or you can click

My sincere thanks, once again, to all my readers who encouraged us and supported us along this journey.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

Sending lotsaluv

We really enjoyed reading the write up! How exciting! You must still be floating on air.

I bet having Toby there was great for the children - he most have been some comfort to them!

Thank you for posting the video clips!

I've kept up closely with Toby's adventure into acting but it was so delightful to read it all - with you personal comments - from beginning to end, all at once. You write well, Caryl. I was able to 'see those little movies in my head' as my grandson, Joe would say. Again, I must say that I am astounded at your level of skill in training Toby and so very proud of Toby, himself, the star.

Bravo Toby!!! I loved reading the whole story, Caryl... and by the end of the video I was teary eyed with happiness and SO proud of how well Toby did after reading about the amount of time and effort involved.

Toby is such an incredible boy. Love and hugs to you, Toby, and the rest of the pack!

What a great idea! I will take a look and relive the great memories of your "Annie" adventure. It was so thrilling to follow your progress from Day 1 through your final performance. What a fabulous time for you both, and for us readers who enjoyed every minute of it. Toby, you are a star!

Oh we are so excited to read the whole thing when we get the chance - we always get so behind so this is a great way to follow the whole thing from start to finish! We are still so excited for Toby getting to be on stage like he did - that is just so cool!
