Hi, I’m Laurie. I am just rebooting this blog after a very long hiatus. I am sort of over the food blogging deal. I founded 2 pretty large online baking groups. (Tuesdays with Dorie and French Fridays with Dorie. If you are looking for a baking or cooking group, they rock. I idolize Dorie something awful, and she is one of the sweetest ladies ever.)
Mostly, I am going to use this blog as an outlet. I am the kind of person who stuffs everything down. Im a bottler, as they say. And lately, there has been a lot to bottle and some of it is bursting out. I think getting some of my emotions out will help me.
I am the Mom to 3 smart, quirky and super fun boys. Liam is 10, Brody is 8 and Colby is 5. Colby was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2009. In 2010, he was diagnosed with PDD-NOS, which to the regular person means he is on the Autism Spectrum. Its been quite the learning curve wrapping our heads and lives over how different our parenting would have to be for this little guy. Its something that sometimes changes day to day, or hour to hour. Colby just started in public Kindergarten in August 2012. Ive been a roller coaster of emotions since letting him go on that first day.
This blog will document whats going on with me, my family and the trials and tribs of our “normal” life.
