Adapting to life with autism is a dangerous business, and I used to enjoy indulgent little moments when I'd believed I'd cracked it.
I've read the dreamy books about the autie kid who progresses from being a screaming dervish of poo and vitriol to being a calm, (non-poo flinging) auto-bot who says "please" and "thank you" and definitely never, ever
dips toilet roll in the loo and eats it.
That would never
happen at the end of these… Continue

This past year or two I've been thinking a lot about religion and spirituality. Matter of fact, lately I've been dreaming of listening in on a theoretic "end of the world" forum-of-world-thought. Well, I kind of just made that name up. But you get the idea. I want to sit down and listen to everyone who has a vision of all this massive change taking place worldwide and simply hear dialogue. It's the English major in me. I want all the colorful characters, the momentous stories. I want to line… Continue

Life has been full lately.
A beautiful, tasty, diverse kind of full.
But, so full that some afternoons all I want to do is nap. Curl up on top of my clean bed, babe in arms, and drift off. Not for a long while, just a half hour.
Alas, Reality Check:
Babe is hardly a babe anymore. He's 1 already. Wah!
Babe only takes one short nap a day. One very short nap.
And, twenty minute nap usually occurs before the afternoon lethargy hits.… Continue

Aaaahhhhh, sigh of relief. The forties are now the twenties, the fifties are now the thirties, which makes this new millennium one of new energy, new action, and new commitments. In the past ten years of this new millennium we have each subtracted just as many years from our age! Sigh of relief again here. Whoever thought of this trend and helped it to catch on needs a big high five, a huge piece of cake, and free ice cream for life as a thank you. Now that we each have the opportunity to… Continue

We all have a Bucket List. You know, things we'd like to do before we "kick the bucket." Well, my father-in-law, who has lived in New England for twenty-five years now, had yet to take an old-fashioned sleigh ride through the snow. It was on his Bucket List. So this weekend, with all our family in tow, we obliged him and headed…

I woke up this morning having had a nightmare right before I woke up. Not the zombies chasing me, end of the world apocalypse type of nightmare, but the type where you wake up thinking, 'Great, like I needed *that* on my mind.'…

These days, it seems that saving our money just isn't as fun as it used to be...you know, like it was back in your grandparents' day, when that was all they seemed to do, right?!! Of course, they didn't have all the cool stuff we can get nowadays, and there was no internet to give them access to stuff any faster than hitching up the wagon and…

It's August, let's talk about your children leaving for college. Or remember when you left! Yes, I know it brings up many feelings. One minute you're laughing with them at a Kmart Blue Light Special, the next minute you're dissolving into tears. The thing about being a parent is that when we finally master one stage of development with our kids, they've already catapulted into the next.
Leaving for college is a big transition for a family. For many parents this… Continue

~ of giant silent turtles that swim in deep seas
~ the dewy green grass, moist and fresh, beneath my children’s feet
~ the soft skin in the hollow of my son’s neck
~ the sound of my daughters quietly laughing behind closed doors
~ your hand, strong and firm, holding mine

It happens to us all from time to time. We find ourselves engulfed in negativity. Negativity is soo incredibly bad for us. We all want to reach a higher ground with supporters not naysayers. No one wants to have their dreams shot down, their goals shattered or just pooooed on.... so I located a wonderful new spot for myself called Mom bloggers Club. I'm excited about the 3 friends I've just met and look forward to getting to know each of them.
For me Mom Bloggers is my fresh new start.… Continue

One great writer once told me that some people have it, some people don’t.
And then you have Larry Bird, one monstrous, awkward cement mixer in the middle of the basketball court. He should be just standing there and get paid, you know what I mean? He’s an OBSTACLE not a basketball player! And yet, he’s one of the most amazing players known to man. Apart from that lithe speed-of-light Jordan guy. Phew!!
Larry Bird who moves at a speed so slow, I could beat him to the net.… Continue

I have a dream.
That kids all over the world, with wondering eyes and eager grins, will listen to stories being read aloud. Some will have Dad to read them a bedtime story. Some will be at Momma's knee, listening while she tries to read and sew by candlelight. Others will be grouped around their teacher, gazing at a picture book while they imagine themselves flying with dragons, and standing up to bullies.
Because these kids are read to, they will have better language… Continue

When I was pregnant with Nathaniel I was two weeks overdue and had convinced myself that there was a good chance that I would be pregnant FOREVER. Perhaps I’d incubated the one baby that would be perfectly content to stay in my uterus and could only be pried out with the words, “It’s time to leave for college, you little freeloader!”
During that last two weeks I had a lot of VERY strange dreams. There was the one where I was trying to get in an elevator and my belly didn’t fit (and… Continue
