I am a mom who is always on the brink of losing her mind. I am a psycho mom.

California, here we come!
Michael and I are going on our first vacation in over 9 years. Aaaaahhhhh. I can hardly stand it. We are going to California the first week of April. Emily, who is living with us, is a school nurse and that is her spring break. She offered to watch the kids and we jumped at the opportunity. I am a little bummed that it is the same week as the FASD conference in Madison I was planning on going to (and just received word that I received a scholarship), but there will be other conferences!!!!
My name is Barb and I am a teenager at heart who is married to Michael, an Accountant. We have 4 adopted children, Akila-12, Imani-11, Hezekiah-10 and Zeke-9. I am a youth worker by profession but currently staying home attempting to manage our household. My hope for this blog is that it will help me to avoid cleaning my house (I actually don't need help with avoiding housework) and give me some serenity (I do need help with this). My oldest child, Akila, has Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and that is what I will focus on in this blog.
Here are a few books that I found helpful on FASD. I also put the link for the lockbox that we have liked the most for locking stuff up. We have one with meds in it, one with knives and scissors. I like that it is electronic and I don't have to use a key. Each of my kids has their own as well.
