Welcome to My World

My family, summer of 2003

Hi.  My name is Caroline.  I am a fairly Type-A, organized, focused person. As such, I enjoy an uncluttered house, checking things off my to-do list, and The Container Store.

My husband (Decoder Man), my daughter Bubbles (11.5 yrs.), and my daughter M-bug (9.5 yrs.) all have ADHD.

See the problem?

Life for an inherently focused person in the midst of three inherently non-focused people can be boiled down to one word: chaos.

My precious M-bug also has other challenges: Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, and low general memory, in addition to learning disabilities. Learning is a daily struggle for her.

This blog is not meant to be an expert opinion on learning disabilities, ADHD, or autism. I have absolutely no formal education in any of the above, and don’t pretend to have all (or any) of the answers.

This blog is a mostly humorous look at a household of opposites. It’s also about the struggles of a mother, for whom school was very easy, trying to educate her daughters, for whom it is not. I’m hoping it will be entertaining and encouraging for you, and therapeutic for me.

So, welcome to my world. There’s room for you to come right in.

Caroline
