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
