I’m so proud – Check out the awards my kids earned at school

I want to take a minute and share some awesome achievements the boys have made in school. We have reached the end of the grading period and awards have been given out. They have a little awards ceremony but parents aren’t allowed to be there. That’s sucks cause I’d love… Read more »




A MAJOR Victory flew under the radar yesterday

Yesterday was a rather challenging day for me personally, but I muddled my way through it. In all the frustration, stress and otherwise chaotic events of yesterday, something didn’t get mentioned that should have. For years we’ve struggled with Elliott and homework. It didn’t matter what it was or how… Read more »

Happy Birthday 12th Elliott

      1 Comment on Happy Birthday 12th Elliott

It was twelve years ago today, that I experienced the most amazing and most terrifying moments of my life, at least up to that point. Mr. Elliott was born on March 4, 2008 after a very difficult pregnancy. Lizze was nothing less than a hero for how hard she fought… Read more »




We had a massive, massive meltdown

      No Comments on We had a massive, massive meltdown

It’s not been a good morning so far. To start things off on the wrong foot, I stepped funny coming down the stairs and jarred my back. You may recall that I suffered a major back injury many years ago. Most of the time I’m okay and I’ve adapted to… Read more »




#Autism + Haircut = MAJOR SUCKAGE

      No Comments on #Autism + Haircut = MAJOR SUCKAGE

Elliott was feeling better this afternoon and I took advantage of that. He was desperately in need of a haircut and he was actually willing to get one. These opportunities don’t come around very often because he hates getting his hair cut. Normally haircuts are a rather nightmarish event that… Read more »




Elliott is too distressed to sleep

      No Comments on Elliott is too distressed to sleep

Elliott and I are having a campout in the living room tonight. He’s been unable to sleep, and so I thought maybe spending some time together would help me get to the bottom of what’s been causing him so much distress. I hate seeing him struggling, and Elliott doesn’t always… Read more »




He’s afraid to go back to school

      No Comments on He’s afraid to go back to school

Elliott is not able to sleep tonight because he too afraid to go back to school tomorrow. I’ve tried to reassure him but he’s really stressed out after the day he had yesterday. I’m hoping he’ll fall asleep because I want to go to sleep. I’m hoping that he’ll feel… Read more »




Elliott came home from school sobbing

      No Comments on Elliott came home from school sobbing

Elliott had what could only be classified as a bad day at school today. At dismissal, Elliott was escorted to the car by one of his teachers. Elliott was apparently upset and had clearly been crying. I don’t like seeing that, and I immediately kick into protective mode, as most… Read more »




We’re giving serious thought to homeschooling at least 1 of our 2 kids with #Autism, that are still in school

Full disclosure. I’m exhausted and having a hard time putting thoughts together tonight. I’m going to try and make this as coherent as possible but no promises. Lizze and I are seriously talking about the logistics of homeschooling the boys. Between Emmett’s inability to wear clothes and Elliott’s emotional struggles… Read more »
