I've been reading blogs for a couple of months now, and have decided to take the plunge and write one of my own.
Who am I? I'm the mom of three. My son P (I've decided that my children will be referred to by their middle initials) is 13 and on the mild end of the autism spectrum. He attends a Catholic school. My daughter C is almost ten and attends a public school (the same school P attended for K-5). She is in the art talent program, is being tested for the G-T program and was the only child in her class to score "Advanced" in both the language and math sections of the LEAP, Louisiana's high-stakes standardized test. My youngest daughter, M is 13 months old and into everything. She is either going to keep me young or get me gray(er) before my time. I work fulltime as a paralegal for a major New Orleans law firm (and given what I've read about what employers have done to employees who blog disparaging things about thier employers, I'll not name the firm. I am the leader of C's Junior Girl Scout troop and will our school's representative to the school system's Parent Advisory Board. I spend too much time on the computer. I enjoy AOL message boards, Catholic blogs and blogs and newsletters regarding research. I've always been a research junkie and have let everyone at work know it, so the wierd research questions often come my way.
What will I be posting about? As the title says, this, that and the other thing. I'm a mom, and I'll share my kids' triumphs and struggles. For obvious reasons, autism is an interest of mine. Catholicism has always been a favorite internet topic for me, and I don't see that changing. I love to share research gems, so if you are looking to add to your link collection, maybe I can help. I may even talk about my Girl Scouts.
