We Hit a Growth Spurt!


If this is your first time finding us welcome! You can learn more about us and who we are under “Crazed Authors”. If this isn’t your first time here you may notice a few changes, in particular, our categories and blog mission.

We changed our focus {mission}. We started this blog with a few ideas and just wanted to see how far those ideas could take us. It took us far! Farther than we expected. However, after a few months I realized I hadn’t really hit the head on the nail. In other words; I didn’t accomplish what I had intended to do. So this past weekend I went back to the drawing board and with the help of the amazing Mrsmissioncontrol; did a little fine tuning.

{Mission}
We’ve noticed a shortage on blogs about military families who deal with the day-to-day of having kids with special needs, and autism in particular. We want to try to fill that space and maybe offer hope, share our lives, and encourage some other families out there.

Additionally, we decided to go to a “theme day” format. Why? It will help us focus more on the topics we intended to write in relationship to our blogs purpose. I restructured the categories to help include all the facets of life we deal with as military families and families of special needs kids (focusing mainly on Autism); from explaining military terms, insurance lingo, new Tricare updates and more.

New categories –
Mommy Moment Mondays: Monday mornings can be rough for everyone, including us. We will try to help you ease into the week, share our new fave finds, and discuss some of the crazy trials and tribulations of parenthood. If nothing else, maybe you can get a laugh as we share an embarrassing story or two. Or twelve.

Tip{py} Tuesday: Tuesdays will bring useful tips in the world of cleaning, parenting, and basically running the world. This is also where we will share any cool DIY projects we have done or hope to do.

Wordy Wednesdays: Alphabet soup anyone? ABA, DONSA, EFMP, ASD, PDD-NOS, IEP…WHEW! Between special education and military life, all those acronyms can be confusing!!! We will run the maze with you as we try to decipher this whole new language.

Tricare and Therapy Thursdays: Insurance and therapy are two very important things for special needs families. Thursdays are when we will cover important Tricare information and news, as well as information we have come across regarding the numerous therapies (namely occupational, speech, and ABA) for kiddos with autism and PDD-NOS.

Foodie Friday: We’ll head into the weekend with great recipes, especially those for those on a gluten free (GF) or gluten free casein free (GFCF diet). We don’t post recipes unless we’ve made them, so rest assured they are mom, kid, and family-tested and approved.

Whatever Weekends: We are tired too, so no promises for specific topics here. We’ll share when there is something worth sharing and take a break when there isn’t.

I am sure this won’t be the last growth spurt we have. So please be patient with us as we learn and grow. It is like when your kids finally learn to button their shirt…the day they grow out of it.

  1. Great info, look forward to following along with your daily topics, while I don’t have a special needs child this is great info to share with others!

    • Please share! We realized that we are always searching for answers and have newly diagnosed families asking us questions because answers are hard to find and questions are plentiful. Thank you Mrs. B!
