Introducing La Familia

Yeah,yeah

This is my husband, Big T. I have been married to him for one year and have been together with him for eight. He’s 24 years older than me so sometimes the generational gap makes our relationship suffer to say the least.We have been through a lot together to say the least. He is pretty laid back and reserved. He’s a good balance to my chaotic mind and heart. He has his flaws and is not perfect . I don’t know how but somehow we have made it work through all of our trials and tribulations.

 This is my teenager D. He just turned 13 in August and he is pretty amazing to say the least. I had him at the age of seventeen so you could say and that him and I grew up together in a way. At the age of five, he was diagnosed with high functioning

Don't look at me.

autism  and he has come a long way since then. He went from being almost non verbal at age four to being in advanced/gifted classes in the seventh grade. He has overcome many obstacles and is persistent in whatever he sets his mind to. I wish that I had that kind of motivation.

Next is my 6 year old, little T. I delivered little T on my 24th birthday and needless to say, personality wise, he is a mini version of me. He’s shy at first but then all of his high energy comes out when you get to know him. He does not like routine and structure which is very opposite from D and Big T. He has not taken the middle child role very well and continues to want to be the center of attention.

So Close!

Last but not least is Baby M. Baby M is my youngest child and he is 5 months old. He was the only one planned out of all my kids. He also came after heart breaking miscarriage I suffered in July of 2010. His personality is bright and cheerful. He has the most pleasant disposition out of all of my kids. He still doesn’t sleep through the night but with a face like this,

Wassup?

how could I ever get mad?

Hola/Hello

So let me introduce myself. My name is Eliza Dalton and I am a married mother of three boys ages 13, 6, and 5 months old. My world is in complete chaos right now due to a recent turn of events. To try explain it all in one blog would be exhausting for me and the reader. So post by post I will reveal a little about my world. Right now we are in the middle of packing up our stuff to move in with my parents in another city. Who says you can’t go home again at age 30?Lol. The major reason we are moving in with my parents: The weekend before Halloween ,our house was broken into while we were out of town. They had broken the glass in the car port door and also broke the kitchen door. They tossed our place looking for valuables and took all our video game consoles, my laptop, my 6-year-old son’s piggy and both of my sons’ backpacks to tote the stuff in. Those material things though aren’t as important as what they ultimately took: Sleepless nights, tranquility, security, and privacy. Every time we leave the house as a family, I get into panic mode thinking that when we come back, we’ll come back once more to broken glass. This affected our two oldest children in a dramatic way as well. My teenager is scared when my husband leaves the house because he thinks the bad guys will come back and I won’t be able to defend him. My six-year-old still has nightmares. Staying in this house is not an option at all. if I want to remain sane and help my children start to heal emotionally. So about 3 weeks ago, I did the unthinkable and quit the stable government job I have (6 days left) after my husband and I decided to move in with my parents. I’m in for the most chaotic weeks for 2011 as I prepare for a new beginning with my family.
