My First Post – shouts in a well

Well, this is my very first blog post.  Let me introduce a bit.  I’m a Japanese mom in late 40’s.  I have a husband, a son, and a daughter.  My curiosity is endless – thus the blog title, “Boisterousmama”.   Or just totally unfocused.  Anyway.  I’ll post whatever I’m up to.

My dominant interests are, as a mom, of course, parenting.  But in my case it’s twisted.  First, my son is severely autistic and lives in a group home.  Second, my daughter is gifted and does gymnastics.  So my parenting interest expands to special education, gifted education, gymnastics, autism/disability advocacy, etc.  Of course I still deal with a “regular” stuff like puberty and teenage (my daughter is a tween) issues, too.

Being a mom is a huge deal and occupies a huge proportion of myself.  But I’m other things, too.  For my wage earning, I am a molecular biologist.  My hobby is mostly crafts like sewing and knitting, but I’m also a novice learner of blogging and programming (oh, sooooo novice).  Then I have a bunch of diseases — lupus, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis for a starter.

So I can post on any of it.  If you are interested in what I post, read and comment, if you don’t, just ignore it.  But I know this first blog is like barbar’s scream in the well “king’s ear is donkey’s ear”…..
