Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Before my son was born, I was a career girl, dedicated to the job. Once he came along, working 60 hours a week was no longer appealing so I stayed at home with him.
We found out almost a year ago now that he's got developmental delays. Most significantly, a speech and language delay. But not an autism diagnosis.

I felt alone. So I started a blog dedicated to moms everywhere, most especially moms like me who are navigating what I call “The Middle World,” the world of raising a child who is not typical, but also does not have an official diagnosis of autism or PPD-NOS. My son Tucker has a speech and language delay and a possible social emotional delay. Well, duh. If he can’t chatter with kids his age, he’s obviously going to be lacking a bit in his social circles.

When we first received Tucker’s diagnosis, I started to research (and by research, I mean Googling on my iPhone while eating) developmental delays, looking particularly for information from parents in similar situations. I wanted to know if fish oil worked, whether they had tried B12, and whether their kids run laps when they start to get sleepy. I found a lot of websites and mommy blogs written about parenting autistic children, Down’s Syndrome children and adopted children, but none that fit me, and our life just right. So here I am. Writing a mommy blog where I’ll share how we find humor and support while raising a three-year old boy with a speech and language delay. I hope to get some new ideas and perspectives from other parents who are also in “The Middle World.” Or any world, really.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Blog every day. Make it sentimental or make it funny. It doesn't always happen, but I try.

Another Mom Hat: High School Choice Researcher

We've come to that moment of parenthood that came much too quickly for my preference, but nevertheless, it's here. We are now looking into high schools for my first-born. I've always been a private-school, Catholic school kid & parent so now we're transitioning to the public school system. I've decided to go out of my comfort zone because we're fortunate to belong to an awesome school district with great high school pathway options. I've done some outside research & now it's a matter…

Motherhood is a Learning Journey


...This week has been a true test of my sheer will and strength as a mother--sending my 13-year-old, my first-born off on a 5-day retreat miles away, off the grid---no contact! It's been emotional--up & down--happy for him, worried for him, excited for him then missing him. Very much missing him.  And I survived. My Huz has survived (barely) & his younger brother (very bonded to him) also survived.  We missed him SO SO much!! But we love him and want him to experience…
