So where to start...

I've been thinking about starting a blog for months, but just never did it.  One night Babes said to me, "You should start a blog."  At first my response was, "Yeah sure, in my spare time!" but then as I thought about it, the idea began to sound better and better.  It could be fun, maybe therapeutic, and a easier way to share the things I've learned along our journey with our children in the world of Autism.  I used to love writing when I was in high school.  Maybe someday I'll post some of my past writing, but for now, i'll stick to the basics.  Who am I?  I'm 29 years old, married, with 2 children.  Before I met my husband, I went to college twice and got 2 associates degrees.  One in Physical Therapy and the second as a Registered Nurse. When I met my husband near the end of getting my RN, my life changed more then I ever imagined possible.  My husband is an amazing man.  Words can't express how much I love and adore him.  He works harder than anyone else I have ever met.  I knew the moment I met him I was destined to marry him and four years ago that destiny was fulfilled.  Six months later we were pregnant.  Peanut, our oldest is 3 years old.  Not a day goes by that he doesn't amaze me.  He has been a true miracle since his conception, and a daily reminder that God truly is great.  On December 7th, 2009 Peanut was diagnosed with Autism and on that day, our lives changed forever.  Sassy is now 22 months old.  She is a true spitfire to say the least and daily gives us a run for our money.  She's an amazingly smart little diva.  Aside from the obvious duties of being a stay at home mommy, I spend most of the week bringing Peanut to and from all his therapies and doing my hardest to spending special "mommy time" with Sassy.  At the end of the week when I'm ready to hide under a rock, I escape by going to work as a nurse at a local urgent care clinic. None of this would be possible without the help and support from God.  Without him I would be nothing. 
So I guess thats my life in a nutshell.  I look forward to sharing and eager to get this all started!
