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

So, after we had been working forever already on the roof (and even had our two middle kids on helping us), Hezekiah got the camera and took a few pics of mom and dad on the roof. Here they are. You can't really get an idea of how high it is, but it isn't too bad. This is after two hours up there. Originally, where we are standing, the snow was up to our waste. We raked it off the level that is behind us, and then were shoveling it off. There was so much snow, that we were very safe. You couldn't even fall off, as if we were to fall, we would have fallen in a pile of snow.
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.
