Lately as I have been dealing with my bio and just life in my world there are certain things I end up thinking of from time to time for whatever reason. Not exactly sure what drums those thoughts up but they are there. Some of them honestly hurt. But those are thoughts I would […]

Aging With Grace Is A Blessing Not Always A Requirement

Another year older and some would say another year wiser but hey we can’t all be perfect. 😉

I have been MIA the past 4 weeks. It has been a very trying time considering my 21-year-old son has decided to take on actions of younger children to teens. Since my daughter has been away in […]

Children…and all that comes with it.

Raising children can be one of the harder things parents have to do in their lives. As we all know there isn’t that perfect manual for us to guide us through the challenges that parenting presents. For me, since I have a “normal” one and a special needs one I had to throw […]

The plot thickens

Husband, Father, Marine, Veteran

By |July 18th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

Today, November 6 is my husbands birthday. He is not used to necessarily celebrating it because of the way they grew up they didn’t celebrate birthdays, Christmas, etc. He turns 33 years old. Yes, I guess that technically means I am a “cougar” since I have almost 9 years on him. But I am […]

It is Sunday morning here in the Carter home. Daughter volunteered at a disabled/special needs baseball game on Saturday and well the rest of us were at home.

Death can be a hard one to explain to someone with austim. I know Dusty doesn’t quite understand what it means so when I found this article I thought I would share.
