THE SHADDOX BOYS
Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Happy Mother's Day
I just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there. I had a pretty good day with both my boys. I got to watch a movie this morning, which was nice! The boys and I went out to eat with my brother, sister-in-law and niece! We ate at an Italian restaurant and I brought a delicious piece of cheese cake home that I ate later with a glass of milk.
Elijah made me a mother's book at school and it is just precious. Jacob just gave me a picture he made for me at school. I got a $15 Itunes card and I always enjoy getting one of those.
Being a mom has got to the one of the hardest jobs I have ever done, but also the most rewarding. I have been a single mom now for almost a year and I have survived it and enjoyed it. It has not always been easy, but I am thankful for these two boys everyday. Just a smile from them makes my day.
I am counting the days until we are out for the summer and headed to the beach. I am really looking forward to it!
