« Teenage Emotionality and Maternal Fortitude | Main | No way, I said »

April 04, 2009


I understand. My extended family members read MCMM, but my son Amigo does not. The posts about his IEP and autism evaluations are more suitable for MCMM than for my own Compost Happens, as he reads Compost Happens. Sometimes, I need to express myself without hurting him. And yes, I think knowing how much emotional energy he costs me might be hurtful. No teen needs to feel that.

I've taken the same approach as you. No-one knows that I write for MCMM and I want to keep it that way. I'm in the process of starting a new blog and I think I'll keep it anonymous too. The things I most feel the need write about require anonymity I feel.

When I first started my blog Notes From the Cookie Jar, I felt the same way. I didn't tell anyone. But as time went on, I became more comfortable with people knowing.

At some point I began wondering how Jake would feel about my writing about him, and his response was this: "Mom, if telling my stories helps people understand kids like me who are gifted/ld/dyspraxic, then it's worth it." Now he regularly gives me input and even will say, "You should blog that." And so I do!
