Therapy or Addiction?

When I started blogging less than 4 months ago I had no idea how much fun this could be. I wanted to "document" the progress of my 2 year old son who has multiple disabilities. I craved relationships with other mothers of children with disabilites. After all, this isn't what I signed up for..... or is it?! I have found a fabulous network of other mothers who are going through similiar trials. Their writings have inspired me! I have laughed and cried as I've read their individual blogs. I've found Crew's twin 1000's of miles away, little Jack. I've prayed for children in other countries. It's just amazing! I have found my little outlet, my therapy. My addiction! LOL. I have found a cirlce of SAHM's who make me laugh. Many of you have brought so much fun into my life. Some of the posts I've read have been so hilarious, they too have made me cry:) I've found awesome parenting techniques & ideas. All in all, it's great! Recently, I've encouraged some family members to join me in the blogging world. It's a great way to keep in touch with loved ones. Two of my SIL's have joined us. I am so excited! Check out their sites:
Attack of the Mouse and Sweet Days of Life. Thanks to all the bloggers out there who have enlightened me in one way or the other.


  1. Isn't blogging fun...when it works! :) I love that you've inspired others!! YAY!!

  2. Thanks M. for the inspiration and for posting my link. I have only been blogging for less than a week and wow, I can't beleive how much fun I'm having. You are right it is addidting!! I love reading what you have to post about the boys. K.

  3. Isn't it funny how we try to drag everyone we know into this little world of ours? They just don't know what they are missing.

  4. It's amazing -- and it KEEPS amazing me! I love how we're able to strike up instant conversations over something like the CROCODILE walker! Who else on this planet would even know it exists? And we thought we were alone in all of this! I am so grateful to have you and all of my other friends to laugh, cry, and share with. I believe it IS therapy...and possibly and addiction too!

  5. The comment from Stephanie, made me laugh.

    I too have dragged others in to this little *world* of ours! I have loved this blogging thing from DAY one.

    You're sweet Mel, and I am so grateful to know you.

    Thanks for the tape tips, I got some, and WOO WOO it's working!

    You're great!

    Love, Lis!~

  6. Addiction, definitely! I'm glad that I have met you...

  7. Blogging is so fun. I just love it. We have dragged almost everyone in my family into it so far. It has been such a great way for us to keep in touch and to banter back and forth. It has been a huge blessing for me.

  8. Blogging is definitely addictive! It's fun to keep an "online" journal to record everything that will be forgotten too soon.

    I have read many blogs that encourage me when I think I have too much on my plate. Yours is one of them!

  9. Wow! What adorable children. You must be proud. It sounds like have you a great family.
