Highlighted Parent and Writer: Alysia Krasnow Butler

My highlighted parent of the day is Alysia Krasnow Butler. She is a seriously talented writer with an amazing ability to write unpretentiously...openly...and with utmost impact.   The name of her blog is Try Defying Gravity

Not the ordinary mom blog!  In addition to sharing what it's like to be a mom of three young boys, Alysia speaks candidly about her middle son's life with Autism.  Thus, becoming a voice for other parents with a similar story.

Alysia writes...

The lyrics to “Defying Gravity” from the broadway play “Wicked” make me cry every time I hear them. Raising three boys is challenging enough, but when our middle son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, life became that much more complicated. As his mom, I have to help him and our two other children understand who he is, and that his autism doesn’t have to limit him or us as a family. My goal is to have them all grow up to be amazing people – each in their own special way, to have them “kiss me goodbye and defy gravity”.

Please visit Try Defying Gravity, and make sure to follow her blog.  I promise you will be inspired to be a better mommy!!!

Happy Parenting,


An open and homest blog about what matters most...families and children!!!
