Welcome to Not an Autism Mom!

It’s been almost 2 years since I started this blog. As I look back on my earlier posts, I’m tempted to change or delete some of them.

I was confused about what autism is, and what being autistic means.

But instead of changing the posts, I’ve decided to write updates at the bottom, explaining what I’ve learned since writing them. I hope you enjoy! ❤

A little info about me…

I live in Virginia with my husband and our four boys. We have a blended family. ❤

I graduated from Virginia Wesleyan College about ten years ago. I then spent five amazing years teaching elementary math and science. It was pretty much my dream job. I was the real-life Ms. Frizzle.

When the twins came along, I stopped teaching and never went back.

I mostly write about autism, prematurity, and parenting. But I also enjoy reflecting on life experiences, people, and issues in our society.

Please follow this blog by entering your email address. I will not share your information with anyone. Thanks in advance! ❤
