The Escalator

Recently, I described the process of finding an inpatient program to help with Theo’s medications and lack of sleep as such: You are on the first floor, looking for a way to access the second. You spy an elevator and think “this is exactly what I need!” You approach the escalator and to speed up … Continue reading

We are #InThisTogether

Friends, in NYS, I am not the only family struggling to make sure my kiddo has proper services. Please watch this short documentary that will hopefully open the dialogue to get PROPER services for all our kids — and adults too — who are on the spectrum. Life Fantastic: Autism and Mental Health

A Kick in the Pants

I haven’t been writing. Those who know me personally already know why (besides being a mom to triplets which keeps me exhausted). First, it’s not health related…(thankfully)  but I’ve been dealing with an issue for 3 years now but I can’t delve too much. Seriously, I am… stuck. And my optimism is broken. Caput. Gone. Today … Continue reading

Sorry, #NotSorry

We have been busy. No excuses. Really… Just haven’t been up to writing. Heck, even running so yes you KNOW it’s bad. There are a lot of things going on right now that are keeping me busy and exhausted so when it comes time to do my Tuesday post I’m all tuckered out. But, don’t … Continue reading

We Did It

Or, should I say, he did it. That would be Theo. Surviving the day.   You see my boy, The Boss, did not have school today. Which means a change in schedule. Such a drag. But it also brought with it changing weather and a high wind advisory. For Theo, our weather prognosticator, it was, … Continue reading

Beware the ides of March

It’s been a long Winter — I’ve addressed that earlier. And since it’s the half-way point of the month of March (beware) we’ve seen a taste of spring!! And with that we’ve seen Theodore improve greatly! Well, minus the time change thing… he seems to be happier, a bit more relaxed, and glad he doesn’t … Continue reading

Daylight Savings Time is…

Yes, #DST hit the Triplet household hard. Two things: Oh Gretchen woke up SWINGING Sunday morning. Yes, she stayed up late (two nights in a row actually) and MAN was she having NOTHING Sunday morning. Picking fight, after fight. Thank goodness the weather was pleasant and she got outside… And, the DAY after… Theodore, my … Continue reading

Valentine’s Day — the Sweetest Day

I was signed up for Olena’s Valentine’s Day party. On top of keeping Theo in check this winter, and dealing with Gretchen who seems to just want to fight, I almost forgot about it when my lovey girl reminded me. “Mom, you signed up for Valentine’s Day,” she said. (Actually, dad signed me up for … Continue reading

My Daughter is Playing #Ftball

Gretchen. My little Gretchen. My little fighter. Theo’s biggest advocate. It’s been a tough winter on her brother and, as a result, Miss Gretchen is feeling the pinch. At least that’s what I think is going on. That, plus, Miss Olena acted this same way last year. Now, it’s Gretchen’s turn, to TAKE IT ALL … Continue reading
