That's about me in a nutshell...now for a little more of the dirty details. I'm dedicated to my kids but there are some days where I just say to myself: What in the hell have I done? I gave up my day job for this?!?
We currently live smack in the middle of the US and live a pretty standard life. I've used pen names for my family as I don't want to give everything away and later regret blabbing and embarrassing my kids or husband. I've given up on doing that to myself a long time ago. If you really want to know more about me I'll be more than happy to share off line.
For the first few years of our kids lives it was hard, really hard, being a mom. I didn't know it was so hard to raise an Aspie till our second kiddo came along. I was sure she was a special needs case since she was so easy in comparison. By the time the third and then fourth one arrived I think my standards were so low I just became resigned to the fact that I would never get the grout clean and shaving my legs once a week was the new standard.
In the last few years we've had a lot going on. We survived a flood two years ago and lost the house in the process. But we came out the other end. We moved to a new city, settled everyone into new schools. Not without a few bumps I might add, but we survived. We lost our third child and while that saddens me deeply, that's not what this blog is about. It's about life, our challenges and trying to get to bed with out cussing-out one of my kids, my husband or the neighbor's dog.
|That's about as close to a full frontal as you're gonna get.|
- Alex our oldest, seven.
- Lizzy, the God forsaken middle child, five.
- Wyatt, in heaven.
- Gracie, one.
- Red Robe, my mom who recently retired and moved in with us. Yay, me.
