My heart’s beating a little faster because we’re celebrating our love for those on the autism spectrum. Every day, for the next 14 days, I’m going to feature one of our favorite authors, apps, and organizations as a countdown to a huge giveaway of their products. (Now I can feel your heart beating faster too!) Have fun learning about them …and don’t forget to enter the giveaway. (Entry form at the end of this post. Lots of ways to earn extra entries too.)
I’m Sharon or as some of you may know me as MAMA as in “Mama’s Turn Now” (Aka Jay and Gracie’s mother). While I am fortunate to make a decent living writing, my real job is being a mom. I take it rather seriously too… maybe a bit too seriously. My goal is to create memories for my kids. They may not remember what they got for their 7th birthday, but they will remember our Friday morning before school dance parties! And the fact that Jay, my oldest, has Asperger’s… well it just makes it crazier times in our house!
It actually was quite a shock to me at first that people found our way of doing things so interesting because I honestly thought everyone did things like that. So I guess now that I know they don’t, my goal is to let the world know that Autism doesn’t have to define how you live life and certainly not who your child is. YOU get to do that.
The tagline to my blog says it all… My son teaches me to be happy! Autism has taught me how to slow down, to see the big picture and to look at it upside down, backwards, diagonal and so on. Amazing what you can see when you do that!
