Happy New Year blog friends! We are just going to ignore the promises I made in this here blog and move forward. We will not mention the lofty goals I had as 2010 wound down (of writing every day, was I mad? in December?). Uh-huh. A little mad, yes — after two weeks of living inside a house full of vomit and diarrhea and two boys who never quite made it to the bathroom in time — you would be too. (Now I can laugh: hahaha! But I assure you, I was not laughing at the time.)
First, I just want to welcome a few new readers who have taken the time to comment recently. It means more than you know. When I first started blogging in 2006 I was overwhelmed with twins and autism. I felt utterly alone. I must say that five years later I am still overwhelmed with twins and autism but it’s different now because of all of you. I disappear from here when life becomes too much, it’s true, but I’m forever grateful that my posse is here when I return and that others join from time to time. So welcome to 4timesblessed (four children with ASD) and Lorraine (yes! both of my boys are left-handed), Betsy and Miss Erin and Jenny (all three autism twin or triplet moms), and Todd, a dad to twin boys on the spectrum. If you’re blogging about your life, I look forward to reading and if you’re not yet, I hope you think about it.
I love and miss all my blogging friends — all of you usual suspects 🙂 Fairlington Blade (another dad to twins with autism) and Christine, pixiemama, Niksmom, Mom to JBG and Keen and Ilene (autism twin moms!), Eileen, Rhemashope, MOM-NOS, Jordan, bugiboogie, goodfountain, Betty & Boo, Kristen and Stimey.
Good god, I have a lot of catching up to do. See you soon.
