Hot Drug Time Machine

I have to go to my kid’s school for a meeting today. I want to bring this drawing and have a chit chat with whoever is responsible for the non-sensical black and white thinking here. It’s true that drugs can be bad. It’s true that some people are alcoholics and that cigarettes are plants mixed... Read more »

The space filled with time

I live without fear because I figured out a long time ago that what someone else thinks can only affect me if I let it. It seems so simple yet it is NOT. It took me years to shed the desire to gain the approval of others so when I see my kid trying to... Read more »

He likes real life answers and doesn’t tolerate bullshit. It’s my opinion that when a parent needs to be more... Read more »

I hate having to think this stuff through and have procrastinated to the point that if I don’t hurry up and return the survey then I won’t be considered for... Read more »

Fuck Autism

I knew there was something “different” about my daughter from the time she was a wee squiggler. Over time, intensive therapy and diagnosis my acceptance level has increased although there are days when I want to throw a bitch slap at people with “normal” children who don’t have to deal with the meltdowns and stress...

Let's Help Animals

My husband nearly missed the birth of our first born because he went home to let our dog outside. Mona was our first “baby,” a beagle mix rescue with seizures and severe separation anxiety. When I was pregnant I secretly worried that I couldn’t love the baby as much as I loved my Mona. My... Read more »
