Heidi Bledsoe


My name is Heidi, and I’m an “attention surplus” stay-at-home mom who does her best to navigate life’s crazy adventures with her “attention deficit” ADHD family. I make lots of lists and I’m wicked good at organizing a calendar. I’m married to Nathan, a larger than life personality who has untreated ADHD, is salesman by day and a comedian at night. My three outgoing, loud, funny creative kids are my life. Two of my kids (one son and one daughter) have ADHD. My youngest daughter does not have ADHD, and she’s the one I turn to when I need someone to remember to turn off the stove. Whenever I can, I share my attention surplus with attention deficit kids, and drive them crazy with lists, post it notes, and repeated talking. You can find my stories at
