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...
I Don't Have Time For Picky Eaters It’s dinner time, the plates are set and the meal is hot and ready. “I don’t like that!”, “It’s yucky!!”, “Can you fix me something else?”  You spent time, money, and exhausted efforts on fixing a meal, no matter how fancy or just boxed meals, and your kids simply won’t eat it. Sound familiar? I’ve been there, and it’s not pretty. Being a working parent with kids in school, extracurriculars, obligations, and everything in between, it’s nearly impossible to be ahead of the game with food that all the family likes. Kids go through stages, and what they loved one minute, they hate the next. My seven-year-old ate breakfast burritos like they were a coveted...
Hey Barbie Moms: Celebrating Motherhood In All Its Glory! If you went to the movies over the past two weeks, undoubtedly you’ve seen prissy pink outfits, glamorous heels, and perfectly styled hair as “Barbie” hit theaters. Since its release on July 21st, it has grossed over $700 million, positioning it to be one of the top-producing movies of 2023. I admit I gave in to the hype and took my 15-year-old daughter to see the film, dressed in our pink of course. I opted out of bringing my 6-year-old because I wanted to see it first due to the PG-13 rating. As I watched, I couldn’t help but reflect on my upbringing, my obsession with Barbie as a little girl, and...
New Beginnings After being at home for years, I’m officially back at work. The transition from SAHM to Working Mom isn’t the smoothest. I have mixed emotions. I wish I could firmly say I have a definite opinion on it but that would certainly depend on when and where I am during the day. First, I have massive amounts of guilt. Oh my mommy heart hurts for my babies. I miss my kids more than anything I’ve ever missed in my life. I wonder what they’re doing at school. Are they happy? Do they feel safe? Are they being loved? It's hard for me. When I leave to go to work and I have to say goodbye to my littles, I...
Is Everyone's Life This Chaotic? Let me start by saying that I truly love my children. I have been blessed beyond what I deserve and I am intensely grateful for all that God has given me. I would also like to mention that God has blessed me with the truest form of variety when it comes to these children. Each of my girls are so different from the other, and it keeps our lives in a constantly unpredictable state. I sometimes wonder if that is the root of the chaos that seems to never end, but it could also be that I lack a sense of preparedness and flourish when it comes to last-minute anything. My husband and I recently decided...
