Well, Hello!

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.

  • Aw, and I love and miss you too, and I get all excited when you pop up in my reader. And I promise I will get back to posting–can’t believe it’s been a year.

    Can’t wait to read some of the blogs you linked to! It’s so nice to know that we are definitely not alone.

    Happy New Year! Glad your boys are over the stomach bug.

  • At least you can look back and laugh. That stuff is never funny in the moment. 🙂

    I hope you had a good holiday! I also love to see you pop up in my reader!

  • Ugh. Sounds like the last round of sick was awful. But, hey, here you are… a new year… new blogging friends… and yes, I missed you too!! So glad to see you writing again. xxk

  • Oh, lordy, sounds like a rough stretch. Can I just take your post, alter a few details and simply say “ditto” to the hard times, the chaos…and the missing friends?

    Glad you’re back…no matter what the frequency is. 🙂

  • Yuck! You have my sympathy!

    So many moms of multiples with autism. There’s nothing like it, once you get used to your new reality.

    Always miss you when you are gone for a while, too.

  • Oh, I so agree how encouraging we can be to each other! Just keep your sense of humor…it will keep you sane! 🙂

    I remember when my 4 boys had a stomach virus…one 4 year old and three 2 year olds…and like you say, never quite making it to the bathroom in time. Oh dear! I think we replaced the family room carpet after that was done! LOL!

  • Thanks for the shout out. We’re just getting used to the waters over here in our little corner of Autismland. first up? School! I’m putting my itty bitty babies on the bus on Wednesday! Gah! I can’t even belive it. They’ve never even been in daycare. I might just be a puddle that day. http://www.theslackermom.com

  • You aren’t the only one who’s behind, I only just discovered this post! Oh, my. I’m sorry to hear about the illness that plagued your home a while back and hope it’s a mere distant memory now!

    Miss you!!
