Once my whole family is sound asleep I finally have time to be with someone I don't spend much time with these days, myself. Just like my mom before me, I find the midnight hour too compelling to just sleep!
Once everyone is asleep it's my turn to finally get a little peace. Yes I should be sleeping too, but like my mom before me, the midnight hour is my time.

This Friday we got to see our beautiful Lizzy in a play at her school for students with special needs. True, she was only in the chorus, but to us she will always be a star!
My daughter's destined to be a star. I know it. She might have just been in the chorus in her school play, but to us she will always be a star.

Every mom-to-be is told about packing a bag for the hospital, but what moms really need is a motherhood survival kit!

Everyone knows kids can stress out a marriage. But I have found that being parents has also strengthened our relationship.  And not in the ways you might think. 
Having kids can be stressful on a marriage. But they can also strengthen a relationship, and not always in the ways you might think.

I am a planner, or at least I was. Then I became a mom and I learned that I can plan all I want but sometimes God and life has another one! 
I have always loved having a plan. Then I became a mom and I learned that I can plan all I want but sometimes God and life has another one.

A few weeks ago Joe and I found ourselves in a situation that doesn't come often enough. We were home alone and the kids were out. What follows is what can happen when you are in the middle of the "Sandwich Generation".

This week the online world was filled with peoples opinions on mom bloggers, and being hot or not. It seems a day doesn't go by without somebody somewhere telling us that our choices in how we live our lives or parent our children is wrong. This week I thought I would weigh in with my thoughts on the subject!
My 50 years on this planet have taught me that I can take what I like out of anything I read, watch, or am told to my face, and leave the rest.

Over thirty years ago I bucked tradition and chose the beach over my high school prom. It was the first time I made a choice on my own and followed it through. Now I'm a mom of a teen and I'm remembering how important that freedom is.
Some rites of passage are just expected, like attending the prom. Over 30 years ago I chose the beach over mine & now see how important that was for me.

After 17 years of celebrating Mother's Day I have learned one thing, it's never what it looks like in the commercials and that is OK! 
Mother's Days is soon upon us. I don't know what the day will bring but I know it's not going to look anything like the commercials I see.

I will always be grateful for getting to watch my special princess dance in a recital just like any other little girl. 
Five years ago I had the chance to watch my daughter, who has special needs, dance in a recital, just like any other little girl.

For the last few weeks I have been totally stressed out. Motherhood has been kicking my tail. It's at times like this when I thank God I have what I need to see me through the tougher days of being a mom.

Yes, my dishwasher is really possessed!
Introduction

I am a mom to three, wife to one and the owner of a possessed appliance who still finds it hard to believe that the woman who didn’t even have an email address till the fall of 2010, is now a full fledged blogger, social media addict and published author. This all came about after years of doctors, teachers and friends encouraging me to write about our life with three children who have a variety of learning differences, including our daughter who has extensive special needs. The Dishwasher has been running here since January of 2011. In the Spring of 2012, I co-founded the online magazine Bonbon Break and then happily returned to my beloved Dishwasher full time in July of 2013. My work has been featured in BlogHer and Mamapedia among other publications. I am also honored to have essays in the anthologies, Sunshine After the Storm and The HerStories Project. Have a question? Please feel free to contact me at, kathyradigan@hotmail.com, I look forward to hearing from you!
