Our toddler’s Sleep Study

So last night our toddler had his sleep study. I know I’ve posted a few times about his sleep concerns. Some of them are related to his Sensory Processing Disorder, but because he does snore we knew it was best to make sure something physical wasn’t going on. He also has a GI appointment coming […]

A “Real” Man

My husband often gets poked fun at or questioned about his choices because he’s a man of God. He’s experienced everything from people trying to talk him into going to “gentlemen’s clubs” to people trying to get him to look at their pictures of pornography/nude women. I’m also somewhat shocked (and extremely sad and disappointed) […]

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is big “awareness month” for a lot of things here in the US – Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Down Syndrome Awareness Month, Liver Awareness Month, National Spina Bifida Awareness Month, Rett Syndrome Awareness Month, SIDS Awareness Month, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (these were the handful I was able to pull up on a […]

Operation toddler sleeping in his room Update

Well, since I’m blogging at 1am my time you can probably guess that we aren’t “there” yet with getting our toddler to sleep in his own room – or for longer periods of time. I do feel like we’ve made some progress but I also feel like we’ve had some regression. When it is bed […]

7 Years

You might be able to tell from my lack of personal posts that I’ve been busy! It’s definitely a busy time, and it won’t really let up until September is over! Phew! My mom and grandma are here visiting from Ohio, which has been awesome! We have had so much fun! We even got to […]

The benefits of an iPad with Special Needs Children

I bought an iPad a few months ago. I have been wanting one for a LONG time. I waited until the 3rd Generation came out and bought the 2nd Generation for cheaper! haha Some people thought I was crazy because why buy the 2nd generation when there is a new and improved one? Well, for […]

Trying something new tonight

So tonight I am attempting something new in an effort to “reclaim our bed” from our toddler. Although I do love and encourage co-sleeping, he is now 28 months, and after many discussions with my concerned husband we have decided it’s best to get him used to sleeping in his own room. I know it […]

End of World Breastfeeding Week

Well, World Breastfeeding Week just ended a couple of days ago, and I wanted to share my breastfeeding story in its entirety here on Pea of Sweetness. As you may remember I did a guest post over at Mom to Bed by 8 and posted a little snippet here as well. I wanted to make […]

Using the Blogdocs App

So I have decided I will no longer be participating in the NaBloPoMo I originally started. I have to work a few things out in my head first, but that’s a long story. What I WILL continue to do is try to post something unique every weekday. By unique I mean something written by me […]

They’re missing out

Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt is “What is the sweetest thing someone said to you today?” Our 4 year old daughter is so incredibly sweet, and she tells me every day, many times a day that I’m beautiful, that I’m the best mom ever, that she loves me, etc. It is awesome! There is one problem, though. […]

ABC’s of Me

I’m a part of a wonderful online community called voiceBoks.  It’s a great place to connect, network, socialize, and make new friends!   )ne of the “events” I’m participating in right now is the ABC’s of me! I found this a bit tricky, but fun! It’s a great way to get to know more about me, […]
