Potty training is tough but can be quickly achieved through these five simple principles: I have no clue. don’t ask me. I’m completely void… Continue reading How to Potty Train Your Toddler
I’m a little late blogging today because I didn’t let myself blog this afternoon until this: looked more like this: Laundry isn’t done but blame it on my slow arsed washing machine, not me. It’s actually a fast washing machine…I just had a lot of laundry. Shush. Note all my little notes on there? I… Continue reading Just Call Me Domestic Goddess
I live in townhouses, it seems to me that people get more nosy when you live in a townhouse. I have this one neighbour two doors down that I find to be particularly nosy. Her child was the one who I removed my children from because him and two other boys were playing “shoot the… Continue reading Excuse Me While I Go Purge My Supper

I’ve been dreading Friday for months. My little baby is turning TWO. UGH. As if I’m ready for him to be two yet. Gimme a break. He’s still a baby…he’s MY BABY!!

Something interesting has caught my attention. Both of my boys came down with a fever and the run last week. The runs have continued into this week. Oh boy oh boy am I ever tired of the runs. Nothing like waking up to poo all over the place…and placing half awake autistic boy into a… Continue reading Autistic Poops….seriously.
Sometimes I wonder if little Isaac came from an extra special place with an extra special mission for our family. I know it sounds crazy, but sometimes I get pretty crazy 🙂 Ikey wasn’t planned. Too much info or not, he’s a product of the very first time my husband and I were negligent about… Continue reading An Angel?
I’ve been a horrible horrible naughty naughty blogger this week. I know I know…shhhhhhhh…it’s ok. Last weekend started off with a phone call to my husband, some convincing that of course I can get my parents to pay for gas and then a quick phone call to my step-dad telling him that I’m holding his… Continue reading The Best Weekend
There seems to be this crazy division between autism parents. Two extremes. There’s one side that’s the Jenny McCarthy following that’s all about curing autism and then there’s the opposite side with parents who think she’s full of BS. I dunno what to think. I’m going to try EVERYTHING I can, but I’m not putting… Continue reading The Autism Divide

This is a topic Leanne and I were discussing this weekend. How to teach our kids a healthy view of sexuality. I’m a firm believer in having sexuality celebrated in our home. I’m not too sure how I will do it but I know I want it to be that way. I do not want… Continue reading Teaching Sexuality

Yesterday I actually felt enough energy juice in me bones to actually take the little spawns outside somewhere instead of letting them watch Treehouse all day while I lay on the couch and yell orders at them (in between moans and groans). So I decided to go to this park we like and bring lunch… Continue reading Energy Juice in Me Bones

I could not be more proud of Silas these past few days. He’s done SO MANY typical things. I love it. Before leaving to go to church yesterday Isaac was VERY upset. Silas walked up to him, looked him in the eye and said “Ikey all done sad”, to which Ikey replied “ok” and they… Continue reading Breakthroughs!
