Has anyone suggested you start blogging because your life is perceived to be stranger or funnier than fiction? Well…
Welcome to Far Beyond Zebra, my first attempt at blogging about life as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and teacher. Here you will find my musings, ramblings, and sometimes rants as I raise an infant and two autistic boys, maintain a home to three generations, teach U.S. history to seventh graders, and try to find what’s “normal” for our family. You know those sitcoms where everything seems to go wrong and high jinks keep the audience laughing, but in the end someone learns a lesson and goes to bed knowing he or she is loved despite any shortcomings? That’s us. I’m far from perfect, my kids are no angels, but we live honestly and love each other “just the way you are” (to quote my oldest son).
I hope to share information here about products and recipes I love, parenting insights, autism advocacy, and classroom tips. It’s a random hodgepodge, but so is life. And in the words of Dr. Seuss, “There’s no limit to how much you’ll know, depending on how beyond zebra you go.”
Thanks for stopping by,
