Blog Party

I hope this is a pajama party, because I am super cozy in my flannels while I write this.  Nerdguy calls them my twitter pants because they have birds all over them that look like the twitter bird.  So maybe we’ll just say that I am dressed for social media, shall we?

For those of you new to my site, welcome!  Please make yourself comfortable.  And don’t be offended if I count the silverware when you leave.  I’m not a trusting person.
So a bit about me, eh?  I am an accountant turned stay at home mom.  My husband and I have 3 daughters – a 9 year old and 7 year old twins.  One of the twins has autism and the oldest is a complex kiddo, so I talk about how we manage navigating life with special needs and maintain a sense of humour.  Or I just make jokes as a defense mechanism.  A good therapist would vote with the second one.

    Hi 🙂 I followed you from the UBP and I’m glad I did. I have four kids—three with autism and the youngest now showing signs of SPD. It’s nice to know I’m not alone on the journey.

    I found you from the UBP 2013. I also have twins and we are going through the process of figuring out what one of them has (or if we want to know). Right now it’s just a jumble of unrelated things – SPD, weak core, social difficulty, etc. I feel like I know where the road is heading, but have no clue how to get there if that makes any sense.

      Maggie was diagnosed, without question at age 2, whereas Molly’s diagnoses took 2 years, and the doctors still don’t agree. Molly’s is the most frustrating, because you’re left not even knowing what book to look in for help, so I get your frustration. Let me know if I can help at all! Thank you for visiting!

    The title of your blog made me laugh out loud! You don’t have to count the silverware because I tend to eat with my hands…really looking forward to following you! Hope we can get to know each other better.

      That’s awesome to hear! So funny that the day after I was contemplating changing my blog name, people are commenting that it is what drew them here! I think the Universe is speaking. That or it’s one of those Melissa & Doug puzzles going off again. Glad to meet you!!

    Hey there! Found you from the UBP and I’m just so thrilled to find out that there are other going-crazy kind of SPD moms like me! I am now a new follower and am looking forward to getting to know you!

    It’s a pleasure to meet you! This is my first UBP and I think it’s so cool! I also have twins and an older child, which keeps life busy and very interesting. I love the style of your blog, your wit and humor. I look forward to reading more.

    Hi I found your blog from the UBP13 and really enjoyed it! I just started blogging in January. I’ve really enjoyed connecting with other families that are raising special needs kids. Looking forward to following your blog!

    Hello, again. You know you have the best blog title ever, right?

    As you witnessed on my facebook page, licking is a big theme in our lives.

    Anyway, trying to follow instructions (for once) and submit my official “I was here” comment.

    I’ll definitely be back too. Cheers!

      Thank you…I wasn’t sure about the title lately, so I appreciate the positive feedback! Someone at a conference told me it was creepy. Even AFTER I explained it!

      So did you find out if shoes were actually worn?

      Thanks for commenting!

    Stopping by, catching up on links from UBP13. My two have some SPD issues. I LOVE the blog title. 🙂 Will be checking out more of your blog for sure.
