Hi I’m Kelly Mantoan! I’m a Catholic wife, mother, homeschooler and special needs parent who started blogging in 2012 to document some of the funny and poignant moments lest they be forgotten under the mountains of laundry, the sounds of kids screaming, or hidden between overflowing folders of homeschool assignments that need corrected NOW.
I publish posts every Friday at this site, and the second and fourth Wednesday’s over at Accepting the Gift, an online ministry devoted to helping Catholic parents of special needs children. I also release a newsletter the second and fourth Saturday of every month (usually!) that features a behind the scenes look at our family, and my reading recommendations, among other things. You can sign up HERE!
When I’m not blogging, I might be working on a book (but highly unlikely), educating my kids, piling more dishes in the sink, driving someone to practice, or running out to our local whiskey bar for a drink with my husband. Life is crazier than ever, but I keep typing away because the memories are too funny to forget and the friendships and community I’ve found are too wonderful to abandon. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
