It's All About Me....Hey once every 15 years for 5 minutes is really not selfish...





I've been tagged by abstract Lucas to play this lovely game letting everyone know just what is deep in your parent's heart. I love it. We so rarely give credence to how we feel, who we are and what we would like to see for ourselves that it is nice to remember that we too are people. That's also why I started the blog The Rediscovered Self. As I write in my welcome:

Meanwhile, I noticed an important issue along the way. As I was busy saving my children I forgot to save myself. So this blog is dedicated to the parents of all special needs children. We need to remind ourselves that we too are entitled to as much of a future as our children. Heck we are even entitled to a right now as well. 



Here are the answers to the game:


1) First off tell us your name (nice easy one there):


My name is Elise Ronan. Well that's not my real name. It's a pen-name that I use to try to protect my sons' privacy as much as possible. And yes I know in the world of hackers anyone could find out who I really am. But hey I try to respect the boys' wishes even as I write about their adventures in the world of autism.

2) I live at home with…

I live with the boys, the hubby and three dogs who vacillate between loving adorable pets and the American version of the chupacabra.


3) My favourite thing to do is…

Write on the computer or read a really good book.

4) My favourite thing to eat is…

chocolate..but of course

5) When I get cross I…


Am a total bitch...stay away or wear chainmail.


6) Sometimes I worry because…

 I'm an autism parent-warrior....self-explanatory.

7) My favourite book is…

Exodus by Leon Uris; The Sunne in Splendour by Sharon Kay Penman

8) My favourite toy is (easy now)…

my computer or iPhone

9) I dislike…

Ignorance

10) When I grow up I want to be…

Unfortunately I haven't figured this one out just yet.
