About ProfMomEsq

I’m a mom, a blissfully no-longer-practicing lawyer and a former adjunct associate professor of legal research and legal writing at a local university.  I am married to the fantastic, patient and handsome Hubs (a/k/a Mr. ProfMomEsq, a/k/a Papa Bear).  We have two children, ages 8 and 17.  The oldest is in college.  The youngest is autistic and attending third grade in a self-contained autism-specific classroom.  I work in the technology sector now as an operations manager.  My own life may be a tornado of toys, unfolded laundry and a half-finished to-do list, but I can balance your budget, build your PowerPoint deck, design your website and organize your meeting with nothing but a WiFi connection.

This blog started in 2012 as a collection of my random thoughts, observations, opinions and rants about motherhood, career and parenting. I used to disclaim an intent to stick to particular themes or topics.  But, as the blog evolved, it became more and more about parenting and – in particular – parenting my autistic daughter.  The blog continues to be one part documentary, one part therapy and one part comedic relief.  (For me, anyway; no one gets my jokes.  If you do get them, can I have the name of your therapist?)  As I continue to write, I hope to also become a resource for parents on a similar journey, connecting parents to other parents, important resources and autistic persons who blaze a trail our children can follow toward a bright, fulfilling future.

I am expert in nothing except being me.  Really, even that’s questionable. But that’s never stopped me from opening my big yap. For more about me and this blog, read this and this.

Come at me, bro.

If this doesn’t make you giggle, you may want to rethink things.

    Oh, and we have a 7 1/2 year old son and 8 month old daughter…. not many of us with that gender order and age gap. Nice to know you.

It's boring when I do all the talking around here. Speak now, while you can get a word in edgewise.
