Message From The President

Walking at our own pace

Dear friends,

“Is he walking?” 

That’s the number one question I am asked about my son, Bennett. Since he’s 16 months old, my reaction is a little sheepish. “No, not yet,” I respond. “Oh, don’t worry,” they try to reassure me. “Once he’s walking, he’ll start to run and then you’re in trouble.” To be honest, I'm just looking forward to Bennett no longer pushing furniture all over our house. If you ever wonder why the tables and chairs in CMEE’s lobby appear to have been moved haphazardly, it is likely Bennett (or another novice walker) recently visited and has done some “redecorating.”
