Falling Apart This Fall

There is a lot going on in this world right now. I can't stand seeing the hate divide us. I fear for the elections because of the outcome and people's reactions to it. I feel like civility and kindness have gone out the window and the grief this fills me with is astounding. I want... Continue Reading →

Executive Functioning

I think sometimes the parenting part of my relationship with M1 is the constant struggle and consequent anger on both our parts of her inability to logically plan and anticipate.

Deep Conversations

Reset Needed

Good morning all can I go back to bed now sigh.....last night was super rough. N decided she didn't need to listen to a darn thing I said and was escalating out of control. I literally had to stand between her and M2 to prevent them from going at it. Finally N calms herself down... Continue Reading →
