Spoiler Alert: We Just Bought a House!

April 16, 2013

It has been a really, really, really, exhausting and LONG 10 days. Two Saturdays ago we were informed that our neighbors were putting their house on the market.  It’s totally gorgeous, in a desirable neighborhood, in a seller’s market, so it of course sold in about 16 seconds.  Our landlord emailed us letting us know […]

Support, not Silence.

April 5, 2013

1 in 88. 1 in 54. 1 in 50. These are the numbers that have swirled around the Autism community for the past year or so.  That 1 in 54 is important to me because it most closely represents us- 1 in 54 boys will be diagnosed with Autism.  At least that is the finding […]

Don’t be Captain Obvious

March 12, 2013

There are few things that irk me more than when a pregnant woman complains of morning sickness and someone tells her to eat a Saltine before she gets out of bed in the morning. Is there anyone in the world that does not know this trick?  If you have read a book, seen a movie, […]

I used to host the Breastfeeding Blog Hop and every Thursday was my night to sit down and dish about the ups and downs of nursing.  I handed the reigns over to the lovely ladies at Sisters n’ Cloth and Life of Wife, Mummy, and Nurse this past summer but I still get a hefty […]

Goodbye Gluten

February 27, 2013

I have been dragging my feet on making dietary changes for the boys since we first got our autism diagnosis just over 2 years ago.  (Sidebar: has it only been 2 years?  It feels like it’s been forever!)  For every study or anecdote that says a gluten-free casein-free diet makes a difference, there is an […]

A Good American {A BlogHer Book Club Review}

February 21, 2013

Like many moms, I don’t get nearly enough time to read, and when I do it’s always something pretty mundane and I just hurry to get through it. (Does reading about developmental disabilities count as reading for fun? No? I didn’t think so!) When I read the back cover of A Good American by Alex […]

Valentine’s Giveaway! {Pear Tree Greetings Review}

January 26, 2013

With the seasonal sickness upon us all, I have been using my time at home to get a few extra things done before I’m in a time crunch.  Like packaging up the Valentines for the boys classrooms- that would be 4 different classrooms if you are keeping track! This is usually reserved for February 13th […]

The Art of Polite Correspondence {A Review}

January 26, 2013

I have so many things against me when it comes to this: – I have terrible penmanship (And it’s not like I don’t try, I just have issues with my hands that make it difficult to write.) – I procrastinate.  A lot.  To the point of forgetting.  I am addressing this with making lists, and […]

Part-Time Blogging, Pinterest, and Pink Eye

January 21, 2013

Over the past few months I’ve started blogging less.  When I get the bug to write, I do it over at Minnesota Mom, and everything else ends up here.  Up until this fall, I had my laptop on the dining room table at all times.  I could sit down and write whenever the mood struck […]
