Somebody's going to be four years old this weekend! Grammy and Papa gave the Doodle a shiney new blue car with about 5 inches more leg room than the pink car he's been driving around town. That pink car has hundreds of miles on it and it was, well, time to retire it and trade it in. Now, we won't get so many stares (oh who am I kidding?) as when I'm pushing the Doodle around in the pink one. Half the problem was the color and the other half was how very loud it was. No, it didn't have an engine, but the wheels were so loud you could barely walk and carry on a casual conversation while pushing it, especially on pavement. The new blue car has a fancy horn and quiet ride wheels. So it was a definite upgrade and the Doodle couldn't be happier.

Welcome to Adventures in Autism & Epilepsy
This site is created in part to lesson my billable hours of Therapy. I was told I should journal my thoughts in order to better cope with my stress. So here I am. Journaling about the things that stress me and the things I love more than anything in this world. Here those two things come together.

New to blogging, I have created Doodle Bug Chronicles to engage those interested in learning more about the mysterious, amazing and scary world of autism and epilepsy and what it might be like to raise a child with special needs. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking and mostly sarcastic this is my journey learning to cope with what is now my normal. I live in the wine country with my handsome and hardworking husband and two adorable boys, Doodle and Jimmy. Oh, and one crazy cat. Thanks for joining us.
