Sensory Bin Round Up

As a mom with three special needs children I am always looking for activities to encourage fine-motor skills, imaginative play, exploration. Sensory bins offer this while offering an opportunity to explore different textures. This is great for both young children as well as special needs children. It’s important to note, though, that sensory bins are […]

Light it Up Blue for Autism

April is Autism Awareness month. World Autism Awareness Day is April 2nd. Many people put up blue lights or wear blue – all to join Autism Speaks to shine a light on Autism by raising awareness. It begins April 2nd and lasts all month long. Many are doing this in support of friends and family […]

Re-evaluations for Speech

Yesterday was the 6 month re-evaluation for the boys’ Speech Therapy. It’s a chance to re-visit their goals, see their progress, and possibly make new goals. Sometimes, though, it can mean ending their services. That isn’t always a good thing, either. So here is what is going on with our boys and their speech. Little […]

The Misconception – I’m not Supermom

I think a lot of things are based on perspective, and I know this to be particularly true because I have heard totally different perspectives regarding myself as a wife and mother. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and assume they truly don’t understand my medical issues or that they don’t […]

A new symptom?

Our toddler has started something new. Because of his array of different concerns I don’t know if this is, again, an issue that is related to other concerns or something totally different. It’s always a guessing game with him! He has come a long way in his speech therapy, but he still has a delay […]

Therapies, appointments, referrals – oh my!

It has been CRAZY! You may have noticed my reviews (and giveaways) have picked up, and I’m trying to continuously update my Holiday Gift Guide as well as promote my own businesses for the holidays outside my blog, plan Black Friday and Small Business Saturday specials, book parties, and eventually break out into different blog(s) […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
