I am a history loving, Harry Potter reading, retrogaming nerd, wife to a wonderful aspie man and mother to an energetic, goofy toddler and a sweet baby girl.  To protect their privacy, they will be called Strider, Frodo, and Elanor.

The year I graduated high school, I found out I that have Asperger’s Syndrome (AS).  I have been struggling to accept it ever since then, and becoming a mother forced me to confront AS in ways I didn’t expect.  This is a blog about my quest to embrace my inner weirdness, with lots of commentary on parenting, autism, and life thrown into the mix.  Oh yes, and hobbits.

There are precious few resources out there for parents on the spectrum, so it is my hope that I can be of help to others like me and shatter some of the negative stereotypes.  Welcome to my humble little blog 🙂

  1. I love your blog already!

    Just curious, how do you find parenting as an Aspie? I’ve never really been maternal and not bothered about having kids, but I do panic that if I do have a child I won’t be a good mother etc..

      Thanks so much!

      I never thought I’d have kids myself and I had those worries too, but when I got married a lot of those maternal feelings came to the surface and now I find that I really love it even though it is quite challenging at times-it’s tough to be “on” all day and there are definitely more tricky social situations to navigate.
