Welcome to my blog.
My name is Carey. I am a Conservative Catholic SAHM to three beautful children. Jimmy is 7 and loves to ride horses and build things. Cristin is 5 and she loves dancing, singing and drawing. Jack is 2 and he is a wild and nutty madman, as all toddlers should be. I have a loving husband, Mike, who I have been married to for over 8 years.
So why blog?
Well, life in our house isn't 100% typical and can be downright challenging at times. Jimmy has autism and brings a certain level of originality to our parenting experience. Jack has a pronounced speech delay as well. For the most part we are a regular family. We do regular things with some special needs in the mix. I used to be really stressed out almost all of the time. The boys' needs were exhausting for me and I went through a pretty rough adjustment in learning how to meet the needs of typically developping children with the special needs of another. So I started writing about our daily journey, first in little emails and later in status updates on Facebook. Over time I have been asked to write more extensively, so I am writing this blog.
Most of what I write about is simple everyday chaos with a funny spin on it. I do it to help myself appreciate my children. even the wild side of them. I also do it so that other parents realize that they aren't alone... if say.... they just caught their child cracking eggs over their carpet... AGAIN.
I hope you enjoy our adventure,
