My name is Jennie..aka “Giggles”. My life is anything but ordinary and everyday our world is lived outside the box. What seems to be an “average American home” is far from it. The only thing average about this house is the grass we have in the yard. Now when I mean our lives are outside the box, we are not any typical family. We have a what would be considered large family..5 boys, 2 girls, 1 puppy and 5 fish. Besides being a large family we have 2 sons diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and a third son with ADHD, ODD.
Everyday is a challenge to live “normally”. Our normal is a day without phone calls from school that someone has been either hurt or suspended for hurting someone, an afternoon without a meltdown over homework , an evening without having to be referee when all three are coming off of their medications.
Living outside the box for us in coming up with unique and individual ways to help each one of our children to become successful in everyday life. It’s the unique and individuality of each one of our children that keeps a smile on my face and in my heart!
