My blog is so that I can purge all of the random junk that floats through my head and also share some of the memories and moments of our daily life... good and bad. Life as a single, working Mom to a child with Asperger's (aka: Assburgers. Lol) and a sweet, yet energetic 3 year old boy can be a chaotic trainwreck...but it is also amusing and wonderful too.

Fabulous, Funky, and Funny Friday

I thought I would share some of the things I read or came across this week that either inspired me, made me laugh hysterically, or enlightened me. Hope you enjoy them too.

Hoppy Easter by Kelly at Living Craftily Ever After

The girl is crafty like ice is cold. She is seriously gifted when it comes to anything cute and crafty. I have no idea where she finds the time to make all of these awesome things while also being a busy working Mom, blogger, hilarious friend and wife. She amazes and inspires me! Check out her adorable Easter projects…and everything else she creates!!

The Grand Whiffer by Mental Poo

Everyone loves a good fart story right? Well I sure do! I laughed so hard when I read this blog post that I had tears running down my face and I was wheezing when I laughed. Seriously hysterical stuff !!
Warning: if poop and farts don’t crack you up. DO NOT click on the link. Kthx!

My Dearest X by Autism SuperMom

This sweet and beautiful letter from a mother to her autistic son really touched my heart. Yes, I do have a heart…don’t act so surprised! She reminded me what seem so obvious but sometimes needs reminding…Love your child completely for who they are and how they are …no matter what.

When It's More Than Sibling Rivalry by Jen Troester

This guest post by Jen who normally blogs at Living Life, with a Side of Autism. really hit home for me. She has a 7 year old daughter on the Autistic Spectrum and a younger son…just like I do. She writes about the struggles of sibling rivalry in her home. I deal with this issue EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. This is the first time that I have felt like someone else understands what I go through when I say that Lilly hates her little brother and I am a constant referee. It is not your typical “annoying little brother scenario”.
Please take a minute to read her post on Squashed Moms blog. It is difficult but well worth it.

I hope you enjoyed these blogs as much as I did.
Enjoy your weekend peeps.
I’m taking the monsters to the beach tomorrow. Wish me luck.



  1. Aww thanks Shel!!!!

    And the story from that last link made me tear up! HUGS to you and all you endure every day!

  2. Thank you so much for linking up Jen's guest post from my blog. She was anxious about publishing it, as it was so much "darker" that the previous two Sibling Saturdays posts, but it felt really important to me that it go up as is. Because that's the truth of sibling relations in her house: really, really sucky. And other people going through that need to read it and know they are not alone.

  3. Awww. Thanks!

    And, just curious, but who DOESN'T think farts are funny?!



So...what did you think? I would love to know! Comments are appreciated!
