My Name is Shari. I was born & raised on Long Island and spent 18 years in NJ. So, I am a NY/NJ hybrid. Not only will I mess you up, but I’ll bury you in someone’s yard. We moved to MD 2.5 years ago and that has been a journey. We have 5 kids, 3 boys ages 6,8 & 10 and twin girls almost 4. SO I guess you can say,for the last 10 years, I have kept myself out of trouble. The three boys are Autistic which presents it’s challenges. Especially because there is nothing about the diagnosis that is “one size fits all”. Each child on the Autism spectrum wears his condition differently and mine are about as different from each other as it gets. When I meet people, they ask me how I do it. Well, you need a wicked sense of humor to start and the genetic Jewish logic of “things could always be worse” to be floating in my mind at all times. We have moments of frustration, celebration and laughter. I hope to share some stories that will make you laugh and not feel alone in the journey.
