What is Autism?

2nd March 2014 | 0 Comments

This link to autistic advocate Nick Walker’s blog is by far the best definition of autism I have ever read.  Here is the non-pathologizing description:  http://neurocosmopolitanism.com/what-is-autism/   What do you think? P.S. – I’m adding a photo to this post, so I can pin it on Pinterest.  Can’t do that without a photo. Tweet

There are tons of guidebooks and manuals for what to do and what to expect for major milestones of human life.  You have wedding planners & tip books for when you want to get married, What to Expect books for when you are pregnant, more parenting guides for once those kiddos have made their arrival, […]


Born to Heaven

* About a month ago, on May 20th, 2013 I shared the following words on my Facebook page.  I posted how I was feeling about the miscarriage of our baby at 14 weeks pregnant that happened on Thanksgiving day.  May 20th was my EDD, and I was feeling the loss intensely that day.  My words […]


A Heart-to-Heart talk

14th August 2012 | 0 Comments

Dear Heart, I’m on to you. You may think you’re sly, but we’ve been at this for far too long for me not to notice the SIGNS of AN IMPENDING ATTACK.  I used to be caught off-guard when you would suddenly speed-up without warning and go racing for what seemed like hours (and twice really […]

Reflections of D-day (Discovery day)

…. …. …. …. I’m not good at journaling, never have been.  I just don’t write my thoughts down every day…but I find myself trying to pick up this habit and attempting to journal every once in a while.  It never sticks (also why my blog posts are random and few & far between), but […]


ASD – Diagnosed

20th December 2011 | 0 Comments

We finally received Micah’s autism diagnosis yesterday, after a 4 hour evaluation.  It’s actually a relief to get the official diagnosis because it’s been 5 months of chaos since he had language regression, since we first saw signs of autistic behavior & went to our first doctor’s appointment.  Since then, Sooooo many tests were done, […]


Teething, and other such Horror stories…

30th November 2011 | 0 Comments

This round of teething for the kiddo is Ex·Cru·Ci·At·Ing! I hope it ends soon because I’m about to go WoNkY. The last 4 molars are killers: Fevers, not eating, crying all day from the pain, irritable/moody, indecisive…and that’s just me! (j/k – I’m just exhausted, and I’m upset that I can’t take away the pain.) […]
