We have more daddy issues than Vanidades.
What happens when you put two autism dads who couldn’t be more different in the same room with two rubias and a bottle (or more) of bubbly? You laugh. You cry. You meet the South Florida Disorderly Blondes’ sugar daddies, better known as the husbands.
These papas don’t preach, but their perspectives on all things autism had even the blondes at a loss for words. As if!
The dads tackle the tough questions, and offer advice to others in their “man-cletas.”

Autism. South Florida. Motherhood. Read More
The South Florida Disorderly Blondes are happier than Elle Woods at Harvard to unpack this stellar podcast episode featuring autistic attorney Haley Moss. Much like the time Elle found Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, we blondes gain a closet full of invaluable autism insight. We may ask the tough questions (have you met us?), but you’ll see this “exercise” in respecting differences gives off plenty of endorphins for all to enjoy. What? Like, it’s hard? Now who’s in for a bend and SNAP? Read More
