She lives in an apartment on campus, because the university she … Continue reading Momma Bear Mode
This was me this morning, after #3 had a major #autism #meltdown. I don't know who had it worse, him or me 😦 All over #5 singing or humming a tune in the car. Then #4, who sits next to #5 added onto the song; and that REALLY set the wheeles in motion for the … Continue reading Mega Meltdown
For almost two years, we have been commuting the boys from a near by town to where their schools are. It has become apparent that the best thing to do at this point, is move the nesting house back into the school district that my kids have been attending since 2007. I was able to … Continue reading Moving on up

Since my kids soon to be step mother arrived from the Phillipines. It's been...strange. My love and I met her last Friday, right before kiddo 4 & 5 soccer games. She also attended their games with their dad. She seems very shy, and out of sorts. She's very short, and speaks English with a … Continue reading It’s been a week

She's here. Her plane arrived around 3:30 this afternoon in Dallas, TX. They're planning on driving back to the Austin area this afternoon. My kids won't meet her until tomorrow, because by the time they get out of DFW Airport and fight Dallas traffic; it'll be close to 10 pm before they get home.
