Tidbits of life in our family. Our cast includes- Me, the mother or Mimi, as Maddie refers to me. Josh, husband and Didi, the Maddie brain at work again. Andrew, the son with autism, who should be defined by so much more than that, but I still use it to describe him all the time. Madeline, the Madster, who doesn't like to be called Maddie by anyone outside the family anymore.
