Blog - Anybody Want A Peanut?


Jennifer writes about parenting a young boy with an autism spectrum disorder, as well as his typically developing younger sister. Her writing is about struggling to make the best educational decisions possible for both kids, and about the process of understanding and accepting her son's diagnosis.

Get to know me:

Anybody Want A Peanut? is a portrait of my life raising a preschooler on the autism spectrum. I write about day to day challenges, navigating early intervention and the school system, and all of the feelings, from the heartbreaking to the hilarious, that go along with it.

Welcome. My name is Jennie. I go by Jennifer sometimes, and Jen, but growing up I was always Jennie. The people who know me best call me Jennie, and since this blog is where I hope to be my truest self, that is what I call myself here.

On this blog, my son is Moe. Moe is not his real name, just his blog-alias (bloglias?). It is what he was called before he was born and we couldn’t decide what to name him. When I tell you that he is the most gorgeous child you’ve ever seen, I’m not lying. Most of this blog is about him.

Moe was diagnosed in 2009, at age 2, with autism spectrum disorder. He doesn’t talk, although he can approximate a few words, and uses some sign language. To learn some background on Moe’s delays, and how we decided to get him evaluated, read this post about how we knew. And read this one to learn the specifics of his behaviors and diagnosis.

My daughter is Jelly Belly, aka Jelly. She’s girly and cute. The girl loves her accessories. One of her first words was “shoes.” Jelly is developing typically and is highly verbal and social. She used a lot of sign language until she built her vocabulary.
