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”…..
