Hi everyone! If you are new here let me introduce myself. I’m Erin, wife and mother to my crazy crew. This blog started as a way of keeping friends and family updated on our son’s stroke when he was 2 years old. That’s right kids can have strokes too! If you’d like to watch a video telling his story you can check out his page. I will apologize up front though and say that it hasn’t been updated since 2010 when he had his Deep Brain Stimulator placed. One of these days I will get around to doing that.

On my About Us page you can learn more about everyone else as well. Again that hasn’t been updated to reflect that my husband just had his second brain surgery three weeks ago because his brain cancer came back after two years instead of the seven to ten we were hoping to reach.

So now you know that we’ve had one stroke, two rounds of brain cancer and three brain surgeries you should also know that we have a daughter who is bi-polar and our other daughter has what is looking like idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or chronic ITP. No I can’t make this life of our’s up even if I tried!

Now that you know about the trials we’ve faced let me tell you how we deal with it. We laugh. We shake our heads and laugh. It’s usually inappropriate but it’s either that or cry and crying just gives me a headache. There’s also a touch of sarcasm added in just for fun which explains why I named my blog the way I did. Someone asked me once how life was going and I said it was full of chaos but I’d learned to embrace it and it’s true, I have.  I’d love it if you’d join us on our journey through this crazy, chaotic adventure that is our life!

    I would use it as 1 of our trio’s birthday present. Then we would only have to get 2 more :) We want to get them on ABC Mouse :) Thanks for the oppurtunity

  2. Michelle Benskin says

    These are great for young readers and for teachers with young readers. My daughter graduates in May 2014 as a teacher in NC, and I know she loves using the borrowed IPad the school gave her, and this would be so much better for her when she has her own class in Fall 2014.

  3. Monica Corn says

    I would use the Kindle to help our youngest child, Chloe who is 2 1/2, she has been diagnosed with Apraxia. It would help her with speech and brain stimulation.

  4. Lisa Lopacinski says

    My son has a speech delay called Apraxia. There are lots of books and apps that we could use on the Kindle to help him.

  5. Laurie says

    I would love for my children to be able to read and keep as many books as the like! I was hoping to get one of these for my family for Christmas but they are so expensive! Thank you for the opportunity!

  6. Heather G. says

    New fan from the blog hop giveaway! :) I would use the Kindle Fire with my homeschool kiddos. So many great resources available now to use with the Kindle! (especially since I have a recent injury it would save me lots of moving around 😉 )
