I did not learn to drive till I was 34 and a new mom. How can it be possible that the baby that forced me to face my fear is now getting ready to drive himself? As always thank you so much for always supporting me and the Dishwasher!

I love words and I'm not easily offended, but there is one word that just rubs me the wrong way. As always I thank you for spending time with me and the crazed dishwasher!

Some days I really feel on top of my parenting and know I'm doing a good job. Then there are all the other days. As always, thank you for supporting me and my crazy dishwasher!

With my 50th birthday a few months away I started to seriously think about shaving a few years off my age so I could stay in the "forties" club a few years more. But as I thought about I came up with 10 reasons why that wouldn't work for me. As always thanks so much for all your support!!

Not a day goes by that I don't see an article telling me what a good mom is supposed to be. But really how do we know if we are doing it "right?" This week I had one of those special mom moments when I knew I gave my son just what he needed. As always thank you so much for your constant support of me and the Dishwasher! 
Motherly Love - I have learned that what I do “wrong” as a mom isn’t nearly as important as what I do right.

Last week our daughter Lizzy received a very special award at her school. Like everything else that has to do with our princess, this experience taught me something I didn't really expect! As always thank you so much for your support of me and the very crazy Dishwasher.

Have you ever seen a summer bucket list for families? Each year I vow to have my crew make one and each year we fail. So this year I decided to make a bucket list just for me! Wish me luck! As always, thank you so much for your constant support of me and my crazy dishwasher!

Feeling a little stressed out over all you have to do for the end of the school year? Not sure if you are stressed out? Take my quiz on Scary Mommy! 
You may not know whether your stress level just requires a few deep breaths and a cup of tea, or if you are in full overload mode that demands a week in Hawaii.

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!
