I’ve been thinking a lot about audio books lately because with all the time spent running around after my toddler, I don’t have any time to read for pleasure. But, we do go on a long walk everyday and this is the perfect time to catch up on some of the books I’ve been dying to read if I just listen to them instead! So get on over to Audible.com (an Amazon company…you can even sign in with your Amazon account) and sign up for a month long trial and get one download for free!

If there’s one thing we all need more of, it’s laundry detergent. Why does it seem that no matter how much laundry we do, it’s never quite done?

Free Booklet about Autism and Autistic Spectrum Disorders
I have a son with autism. He is now an adult and recently moved back home after being on his own for a brief while. His autistic tendencies made it difficult living on his own. He is again planning to move out on his own, and we are hoping for better results.
It’s a big, scary world out there for those of us that have children with special needs. I am often asked about what to watch for, how I knew he was different and what we did that made the most impact on his development. I wish I had all the answers. If you have similar questions about autistic behavior in your child, here is a free booklet from the National Institute of Mental Health that may offer some guidance for you if you believe (or already know) that their child has a pervasive developmental disorder. This free guide (A Parent’s Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorder) helps parents understand what autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is, recognize common signs and symptoms, and find the resources they need. – International
You can either order the hard copy of the booklet or download it to your computer. I usually do both. I save PDF’s and sync them with my iPad using Dropbox. If you aren’t familiar with it, you should check it out. You can use it to get access to your files on your computer from any device that can run Dropbox. It runs on PC, Linux, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Android, Blackberry and Kindle Fire. Of course, Dropbox is also free.
