My friend Batty Nurse asked about any differences that Adam has noticed in eliminating gluten from his diet. Well, that’s a hard one. As an Aspie, Adam doesn’t have a lot of self-awareness skills. I have learned to tell him, “Adam, you seem to be angry right now,” and he has learned not to go [...]
Several weeks ago we decided to take Egg and Adam off of all gluten-containing foods due to an article I read in the Huffington Post. I had previously heard about parents taking their autistic children off of gluten and seeing positive behavior changes, but I hadn’t done research on developmental delays not related to autism. [...]
My dear friend Swistle has a Christmas card scoring system that I love. This year you can purchase it somewhere but I cannot find the link. (ETA: The card and the poster are available for purchase. Thanks for the links, Swistle!) Adam’s grandmother wrote and emailed this gem for all her family to cherish. I [...]
Chicken, Egg, and their gestating baby brother(!!) wish you a very merry Christmas.

Mother: “i miss the vietnamese place that was next door” Secretary: “there’s a korean place there now” Mother: “its not the same…” Secretary: “really? I thought they were…” Both: “awkward silence”
I keep meaning to post my Twitter feed on the sidebar for those of you that are nosy but not into Twitter. Recently, you’ve missed that I got a nasty sinus infection and gave up fighting it on my own after a week of really gross shit in my face. I went to the damn [...]
Adam received a box of Quaker Oats Chewy Granola bars in his Christmas bag. Today I looked them over and discovered an expiration date of August…2009. Bad Grandma asked me if Egg had any Dr. Seuss books. I said yes, mostly older ones from my childhood and Chicken’s childhood collections. She whispered with Glee that [...]
You might remember that I nicknamed Adam’s paternal grandmother “Bad Grandma” several years ago. I had not yet met her, but I had heard enough stories from family members to coin the name. Adam’s father enjoyed the tales of Bad Grandma until he heard ME use the term. After that he was offended and upset. [...]
