Okay. This is my first blog so i'd ask for patience while I figure out how to make my blogspot more attractive in appearance (okay i'll tell the truth, I need one of my children to help)
I'll provide a bit of background for those who know me less well.
I'm a 46 year old mother of 3 children ( hence the name Raisin' Pies as my children bear their father's last name of Letarte.) We have a slightly extraordinary existance compared to most families in that our eldest son has Non-verbal Learning Disorder, our second son has high functionning Autism, and our daughter was born with a duplicate urinary system. (3 kidneys but NO before anyone asks for one, she is not in a position to give any up) We are also blessed with a parrot with a severe underbite who hates me, bites me, swears at me in French and craps on my floors. Plus a blind canary. I seem to draw the atypicals !
Many friends have asked me to write a book or some other account of our lives.
This blog is not likely to be about handicaps nor will it generally have a "woe is me" feel although I suspect that there may be moments, my intent is that it be a mostly humourous and occasionally poignant account of day to day life with my bright, witty, interesting & talented, sometimes frustrating, annoying pains in the ass.
Nothing interesting has happened today, except that Isaac is home faking being sick & fully believing that I am unaware that there is nothing wrong with him.
