Why I Hate the End of the School Year

The whining, in my household, begins on the first of March and continues until I quit dragging the children from their beds, at the crack of dawn, at the end of May. And then they continue getting up on their own, even though we could sleep in!

And the reason for the whining? A horrific case of The Wants.

Every Day's a Hostage Situation

     That's how I feel most days. In case you didn't realize it, I'm the hostage and I live by the whims of my children/captors. I can't make plans because even the best laid will be contingent upon the moods of three, temperamental, asshats determined to be dictator of my schedule.

The Levels Program

Myriam stimming. (It's a self soothing behavior, in this case, spinning
but can also be any repetitive motion.)
     Sometimes, out of nowhere, reality bitch slaps me in the face. Often times it's the little things, the nothing things that make me realize how different my path is from the "normal" mommies. Sometimes, it's bigger; somehow more significant. The past couple of weeks was all of that and more.

Bad Morning

It seems like Porter can only have one good day at a time. And that's harder than when he's just having bad days, because good days give you hope. So when that bad day comes so quickly and your hopes are crushed, it hardly seems like those good days are worth it.

Yeah, it was a bad morning.
