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

Hairy arm pits
God help me. Akila just came running to me freaking out, with excitement, saying that she is growing hair in her arm pits. She really is. I am not ready for her to go through puberty, ever. She is quite excited, and I can guarantee, that she will show everyone at school on Monday, and all the neighbors; despite all the conversations we will have about private things. Siiiggghh.
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.
