About this product
- DescriptionWelcome to the down and dirty world of one autism mom's journey - from Sex-Ed to Santa Claus. Jeni Decker is five-foot-thing and one-hundred and [redacted] pounds - a self-described roly-poly, forty-something, Rubenesque bonbon of a gal, often called cute but never sexy. She has two sons with autism on opposite ends of the spectrum (Jake and Jaxson), a husband who prefers hunting to household chores, an Australian shepherd named Sugar, and an albi frog named Humbert Humbert. This is her story-a brash, personal, and sometimes shocking memoir of one woman's determination to raise two healthy kids with autism and keep her sanity in the process. It's t always easy. Between poop incidents, temper tantrums, and the helpful advice about parenting from her fellow citizens in the grocery store, Jeni often finds herself at her wit's end. Or wanting to throw something. Readers looking for laughter and inspiration will find it here aplenty, along with tons of surreal anecdotes that will have you either shaking your head in disbelief (for those unacquainted with the world of autism) or dding with recognition (for those who are). As Jeni says, I developed a new 'rmal' .
