I am a trained coloratura soprano opera singer, now turned stay-at-home mom to three children ages 12, 8, and 3. My husband is on the path to becoming certified as a computer programmer, so I get to mooch off of his abilities a bit 😉 . My oldest, Taylor, has severe autism and ADHD. He was diagnosed at three and is non-verbal. His two siblings are typical kids who love their brother with all their hearts. Autism is just a way of life for them and feels normal. My husband and I have been married for 14 years, and together we work as a team to try and raise our kids the best we can. We believe in Jesus and find our strength and hope in Him, which makes our load lighter and more bearable.
My favorite things to do, aside from singing, is reading, writing, consuming coffee, creating art and DIY projects, and exercising, mainly outdoors. I do like a good step aerobics class, though. 12 years ago, I traded life on the stage for a principal role in a play of domestic mayhem. This blog is where I post about what life looks like for a family dealing with autism, my life as a stay-at-home mom, how I still try to remain connected to my opera roots, my coffee addiction that is epic, and just plain crazy life in general. My husband posts too, but it isn’t going to be about opera and stay at home life, I promise 😉 . So does he :). I hope you enjoy my blog, and follow me either via subscribing through email, or liking my Facebook page The Stay At Home Soprano (or both! 🙂 )
