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

Cell phone #2
Seriously. I am brain dead. Why cannot I get better at checking Akila's pockets, all of them, and her backpack each day. I just found a 2nd cell phone in her bedroom tonight. And she is in no mood to talk about who it belongs to. Strike that. She just called me upstairs and said she was willing to talk. Before that, here are a few of the things she was saying:
F*** you, Dumb A**
I'm going to punch you in the mouth
Shut the F*** up
Ooohh, I'm really scared of you
and the list goes on, I only shared the mellow ones
And now, I am an even better mom than I thought I was earlier. I can't stop laughing. She stole the phone off of our superintendent's desk. She says it is his old one. And I can't stop laughing.
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.
