I’m just another one of those lazy, irresponsible, entitled millennials you keep hearing about. *insert sarcastic eyeroll*

I’m a wife, mother, pharmacist, freelance writer, crafter, backyard chicken “farmer,” and small business owner.

My son, Emmett, is all about super heroes (especially Spider-Man) and is the sweetest kid ever. He was also born with Down syndrome, but doesn’t let that hold him back. 

My daughter, Madeline, is a little bit too much like me (apparently, I “need to be right” all the time), which drives my husband crazy, but we make it work. She loves doing crafts, and specializes in making “wanted” posters of her brother to hang around the house. She was also blessed with a splash of ADHD and a pinch of autism.

I like to write about anything and everything. So whether you want to read about staring down an angry possum, making hot cocoa from scratch, navigating the dumpster fire of our nation’s health insurance industry, decorating sugar cookies, advocating for your differently-abled child, foraging for hickory nuts, or despairing over how you’ll ever clean up all rice your child so kindly distributed to every corner of your house, stick around. I might not have all the answers (I’m somehow still picking up rice even though we’ve moved houses since the “incident”), but we can at least commiserate together. Welcome!
