Hi - I am Andi, Mom to Aspie Emily (10.s), Gifted child Gabi (8) and Joey (3).

I pop over here and read from time to time, it's good to keep up to date on struggles & such. I have been an ivillage member for ages & was really active in my June 2004 club. We went private over a year ago, so I don't come here as often as I used to.

Sometimes I get so angry at Emily & I come in here & see you're all dealing with the same stuff!

On average, an infant laughs nearly two hundred times a day; an adult, only twelve.
Maybe they are laughing so much because they are looking at us. -- I Ching

Welcome Andi,

I too have been on ivillage forever! glad you de-lurked! So often we need to back away and get a perspective. I find when I come here I feel so much better just knowing that my kid isn't the only one.

Hi Andi,

Welcome to the board. I am glad you de-lurked. Please feel free to pull up a chair and make yourself at home.

I think we all hit walls of frustration with our situations from time to time. Are there any particular issues you are dealing with that make you angry?
