Celebrating 100

Each load of laundry gets me one step closer to researching those nudist colonies in New Mexico
I realized this week that I published my 100 post. In a little over a year, I have written about all types of stuff; some funny, some not, some slightly offensive, some brutally honest and some that just came out of nowhere, which made you wonder what I was drinking at the time I wrote it.

There are days that I wonder who really reads this. I mean, I look at my stats and I know that I have audiences around the world. That one person in Indonesia matters to me as well as my one reader in Sweden, Australia, Colombia, and Brazil. I appreciate those two people in Great Britain, China, Canada and Indonesia. And I am happy with the 15 Russians, those 15 Germans and the several hundred of readers in the USA. Not sure if they were looking for porn and the search engine disappointingly let them to my site, but I can dream.

Looking at the posts with the post hits, "Potty Training Hell" is the number one post with over 370 views. Surprisingly, "Homeless Woman" was number two with 231 hits. Number three is "Playing Appropriately" with 197 hits.

I must admit that some days I wonder if I should continue writing and some days the words won't come because my head is spinning too fast. 

But, I have over 77 drafts that need to finish, so if you want to see them completed,  comment today. Let me know the funniest thing your kid(s), students did or said to you. 

I want to know. Really. Feedback is a nice thing. 

Happy 100 to Casa de Crazy.

Diary of a music mom

Since fifth grade, both #1 and #2 have been playing instruments; #1, the saxophone and #2, the trombone. #1, Autism classic, plays the very same saxophone that I started on in fifth grade. I  teach him daily and we go once a week to our new sax teacher and they work on jazz. #2, the aspy is a lot more autonomous and he doesn't require my attention when he practices and gets by with his weekly skype lessons from grandpa and his private teacher.

Every year, our school district hosts a solo and ensemble festival. The kids have roughly eight weeks to choose a listed piece and then perform it with an accompaniment. Every year, I make the boys participate even though it means I need to spend more time with #1 to make sure he doesn't sound like a moose in the wild and more like a saxophone player.

It always turns out like this:
I choose the new piece and we trudge through it slowly and painfully.
I second guess my choice because I think it's too much, too hard, too intricate for …

My Heart Will Go On

At the end of the school year, the teachers usually host an event to give thanks to the many parents who helped out during the school year. When I went to #1's school, they had an elaborate spread and the highlight was when the sign language club performed a few songs.  #2 & #3's school, had their volunteer appreciation breakfast last week, and I was happy that I was able to bring the twins with me.

Everything was great. There was food, coffee, juice and some awesome moms. But, then the music teacher brought in the fourth grade class and they were all holding their recorders. Great. One kid practicing the recorder at home is painful enough.  Forty kids playing recorder in a quasi-controlled group is just one way the music teacher can express her feelings about not getting any holiday presents or special accolades during teacher appreciation week. F-U people, I teach your talentless kids and it is a thankless and painful job.  I'm going to let you know how much I apprec…

World Autism Awareness Month: A Time To Focus On Our Similarities.

Tomorrow, April 2, is World Autism Awareness day. I thought about all the things I could say about awareness and then I realized that the people who read this blog know all this stuff. With the latest release from the CDC about the number of children diagnosed with Autism now at 1:68, there will be a day that everyone will know or be related to someone with Autism. And unfortunately,  It is only when something affects everyone is when things will change.

I decided to re-share excerpts from my post: We're More alike than you think. The post was inspired by Willman Stillman and my self-observations. Everyday I look at my children and realize I have more Autistic qualities that I realized. I have also realized that it not necessarily a bad thing. Maybe melting and throwing myself on the ground if I can't find my keys may be over-doing it a bit, but many things are really a core part of me; like my ability to memorize information. It comes in handy on Black Friday for sure.
