Hiya! :D Excited to be here! I have been writing on and off for years but really want to be more intentional about it, and especially be more connected to other moms.

I am a SAHM & occasional substitute teacher, with a background in education/psychology/religious education. I love bacon, am an amateur paleontology buff (have a huge fossil and shark-tooth collection!), randomly burst into show-tunes, and I have this annoying tendency to occasionally Tweet at celebrities.

I have a hubs and two sons. Boys are SO busy, and they are what makes my life truly "Not Boring". Even when there is chaos at least I can say it is interesting!  My kids are awesome, and I am so proud of them. One also happens to have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and that made me care even more about promoting acceptance of the special-needs community.

About a year ago a video of my son playing with a sea lion ended up being one of those flash-in-the-pan "viral videos". I t was awesome because it helped spread special-needs awareness,  but it was also pretty weird, ha. I shared the video for the same reason I write: I hope the help make the world a kinder, more open minded place for people who are different. I want to help people find beauty in unexpected places, and strength and meaning even in the midst of struggle.  I also write for my own therapy, to work out all the mess of thoughts and feelings inside my head!

Looking forward to getting to know you all! <3


Embrace what makes you unique... it's not boring. Seriously.

"Seriously Not Boring" is the musings of a bacon-loving Autism mom on a quest. Looking for meaning in the midst of life's ups and downs, striving for understanding and acceptance for the special-needs community.

Hi Jennifer,
Welcome to Top Mommy Blogs!

I tried following your links, but the only one that worked was the Twitter link. If you need any help setting things up let me know.  Also, do you have a blog address?  :)

I have a nephew and a cousin who both have Autism, and it's been an eye opening experience. My cousin's son, Bryce, just started college this year and lives on campus. He gets weekly visits from his parents, but we fully support him and think this is just wonderful.

I look forward to connecting with you!
-Jenn
