I am a mother of three boys under the age of six. My 4-year-old twins were born early at 30.1 weeks and had to be in the NICU for over three months with one twin coming home before the other. During my labor which could not be stopped, I asked myself "what if...?" Could I have changed anything in my diet, the way I worked out during pregnancy, or how much I worked (stress levels)? This is one of the many scenarios I have grappled with since becoming a mom, thinking "what if?" My oldest son was recently diagnosed with ADHD. Being his first year in "big boy school," this mom has cried lots of happy and sad tears. From...

Every time I go out to eat, my eyes always get glued to the kid sitting at a table quietly with his/her family either coloring or on a piece of technology. What I think? Never in a million years would that be my family. Does it make me sad? Yes. Am I blessed, though? Also, yes. Going almost anywhere… out to eat, to the zoo, to the library to check out a book, to the store, or even to an amusement park is not what this mom calls “fun for the whole family.” I am a boy mom with wild 3-year-old twins and a wild 5-year-old who started Kindergarten this year. One day, we had a whole tub of flour dumped all...
As a new school year begins most parents and students are excited to begin a new chapter. New grade, fresh supplies, school uniforms and let's not forget the brand new shoes. I am an anxious mom this time of year because we have two speech-delayed children starting school. One starting kindergarten and one starting pre-k 3. Transitions from one school to the next or one grade to the next can be tricky for those with developmental delays. A new teacher, new classroom, and schedule can be triggering.
