The Journey Of Parenting The Exceptional Part 2 In a world where we constantly put ourselves in boxes and everyone has a label attached to them, parenting the exceptional is a journey filled with obstacles. And what does that look like? For most parents it starts with an 8-month to 1 year wait, just to see the appropriate doctor to get a diagnosis. That wait time is stressful, because you always have that inkling in the back of your mind, that maybe it’s not that. However, reality hits everyone differently and we must first come to grips with our children’s diagnosis (read about mine here in Part 1) and then the work begins. Early intervention is the best intervention. That’s the saying...

Some Pooch & Kid-friendly Spots In Baton Rouge My family and I just adopted a German Shepard. He, like my three human kiddos, are wild and adventurous too! I have not owned a dog since I was a little girl, so I am new to the fact there are dog-friendly and actual spots that encourage pet owners to bring their pooch! I needed to find spots for not only my three boys to hang out at but with our newest four-legged member of our family too. The Smiling Dog – We can easily bring our boys and our dog outside on the patio! Not only does this restaurant have a kids’ menu and a dog menu, but it also has great beers...
Thanks For Everything, Prairieville Goodbyes are not my favorite, but are necessary when closing a chapter. We moved to Prairieville, Louisiana almost seven years ago. I was newly pregnant, licking my wounds from a failed attempt at living in a camp in Lacombe, followed by a short stint of housesitting off of Magazine in New Orleans with my brand-new husband. Baffled by adulting, we looked at houses in three different cities. We did not know what we were doing, but we knew where we were headed. It was time to become our own family, and we guessed that moving to suburbia near my family (with a straight shot to New Orleans) was the best bet. We did not know, but we took...
Happy Father’s Day To My Dad Happy Father’s Day! It’s time to celebrate the dads. These are the first men we ever love. They show us love, how we deserve to be treated, and they showed us the world. I would like to talk about my father: Dr. William E. McHenry. His other name is “Pawpaw” to the boys. My dad is from LouAnn, Arkansas. He comes from a wonderful God-fearing family. My dad recently received the Presidential Award for Excellence for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering mentorship. But I think he’s more proud of being a dad and grandfather. My father is my hero. He is the most amazing man in my life. My dad is one of the happiest, patience, and...
