School is starting next week, so it is time to start getting ready for lunch packing...bleck! Sorry, but I absolutely detest packing lunches...not sure why, but I do. One morning during the last school year, when I was packing Kate's lunch, I realized that most of the items I was putting in her lunch box were ridiculously processed. It's actually one of the reasons that I started this blog. I decided that I needed to do a better job of making sure that I feed my children healthier foods,… Continue

Sixteen-year old Anna Sullivan is an outsider at her high school. Quiet and shy, as well as cursed with a tortuous family past, she can’t hope to attract the attention of popular Tyler Marsh, for whom she has a crush. How could a girl like her, a girl with a low social status, an alcoholic father and a mother who abandoned her, dare hope…

Dear Liquor Store,
Perhaps you may have heard some rumblings about the impending summer vacation that's about to pounce on the town here any day now. Yes, kids will soon be out terrorizing the streets and pimping lemonade hardcore on every effing corner. They will be changing their clothes 357 times a day, thereby creating even more… Continue

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all. His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain. So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)
Once upon a… Continue

I have been coming across blogs here and there about the stress of having their children home for the summer months. And I can’t help but wonder why. Summer is such a wonderful time of the year. There is so much to do. Homeschooling changes your view on things.

I have been working hard to get myself organized. So far, I’ve gotten the kitchen(mostly done), the living room done, and our lil’ homeschool/therapy room. Actually the boys spend most of their day in here. We do all their therapy in this room, ALL their Legos, and of course our schooling.
Homeschooling can be very expense & so is Autism, diabetes, pacemaker, & hypothyroidism. Mix it all up, and we are constantly broke. We are constantly thinking out the box, and looking to… Continue

We all know going back to school isn’t the most exciting part of any student’s school year. Of course we also know that once they get back in the groove of school work, football games, and friends the anxiety settles down. The best way you can help them head back to school as a parent is to jump in there with them and make it fun.
Here are 5 ideas to help kick-start their school year
1. Back to School… Continue

As the last days of school are gone, with three boys to thing about hosting all day, i had to think about my daily routine and what it was going to look like. So far it's been 7a.m. wake ups, cooking breakfast instead of fast get out the door cereal, a hot lunch for 4 instead of the t.v. dinners for 1 and lots of interventions! I thank god that summer is only two months long I don't know if any of us can handle any more than that! I keep the boys up to date with daily school work while the… Continue

The house is still. The only noise I hear is the hum of the refrigerator. I’m basking in the quiet and trying to make it last as long as I can. Because…today is the last day of school. A day I’ve been dreading more than a gynecological visit or a root canal.

Last Friday was like any other day. The girls came home on the bus. They played outside until it started to get dark. We were all tired from the long week so we decided to have pizza for dinner. After dinner we watched a movie together, and then it was time for Hunter to go to bed. She went to her room, put on her pajamas and brushed her teeth. As she was leaning over to kiss us goodnight, I noticed something wrong. She had bangs where she didn’t have them… Continue

At the beginning of the school year, I was among the privileged few, allowed to walk into the classroom.
In the mornings, when I walked my son to school, we'd see parents dropping off their kids from their cars. But my son wasn't interested in that. He wanted me to park, to walk with him into the school, into the classroom. We held hands. He waved a sleepy goodbye.
By the beginning of the second semester, things had changed a bit. I still parked, but I had been relegated to the… Continue
