Four years ago I made a promise to myself that each Sunday I would post an essay come hell, high water or sick kids. This is why. As always thank you so much for your ongoing support of me and the Dishwasher!

This week I'm sharing about the power of prayer, a mother's love and the small miracle that happened 13 years ago that made me know I had no need to fear.  As always I thank you for the ongoing support you give to me and my crazy dishwasher!

Well it's that time of year again, the time when we all start to make our New Year's resolutions. But you know what? Once again I'm taking the Mommy Exemption. As always thank you all so much for your constant support, I really appreciate it! Much love to you!

It's that time of year again. The time when I have to face the dreaded Parent Intake form that asks me to describe my special needs daughters strengths and weaknesses, as well as tell them my hope for her future. When you have a child with significant issues these forms feel like salt in wound.

When Lizzy started to attend a school exclusively for children with significant special needs I didn't realize that she wasn't the only one who needed a different education, so did I. As always I thank you for your constant support of me and my possessed dishwasher!

 love being married but some days my husband can drive me totally nuts!! There are days when I really would just like to head for the hills! But strangely enough those same things can be what is most endearing about him and what makes our marriage stronger. As always thank you for your ongoing support of me and the crazy appliance!

Legend has it that I was speaking full sentences by the time I was 18 months old. But it took becoming a mother for me to find my voice. As always, I thank you for your ongoing support!

Don't you sometimes wish that you could go back in time and let your younger self know a thing or two? This week I share the letter I wish I had the day I realized that there was something seriously wrong with our beautiful daughter.

Well we finally set up our Christmas tree. I really can't believe how quickly my children are growing up. Once again I realize just how important making memories is. As always thank you for your ongoing support of me and my crazed Dishwasher! xo

I have been blessed with many friends throughout my life, some stay for years, others for far less. Usually they don't really end but rather just fade away. But sometimes they can end more dramatically. As always I thank you for your ongoing support.

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!
