Coming Soon: The Christian Parenting Handbook

Lately, I have felt there was a lot “missing” in my parenting, so when I heard about The Christian Parenting Handbook I was definitely intrigued. After reading the description it was like an instant “ah ha moment!” This is IT. THIS is what I’ve been looking for! The National Center for Biblical Parenting is launching […]

Not your Average Nursing Pillow

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort and Harmony for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Having nursed two I can attest to the importance of the a good nursing pillow. Even with our oldest who I was unable to breastfeed I found a nursing pillow helpful while feeding him […]

We survived the dentist!

All 3 kids had their first dentist appointment yesterday. I know, long overdue for our 5 and 6 year old! Brayden has had some tooth pain, though, and, as I said, a trip to the dentist was long overdo! We got recommendations from other parents with special needs children who also have the military dental […]

A New Perspective: Personality Traits

As I shared, my “theme” this year seems to have defined itself: Perspective. I continue to prayerfully consider my perspective on both every day life occurrences as well as the more complex things in life. One that was constantly nagging me were personality traits – particularly those of our kids. Having special needs kids sometimes […]

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 […]

Happy Birthday Aurora!

Wow, I cannot believe our baby girl is 5 now! They really grow up so quickly! 5 years ago I got a phone call in the late morning that the amniocentesis came back saying her lungs were mature, so they were scheduling the c-section THAT night (repeat c-section – but I’ll skip all those details)! […]

He has weaned

It’s been quite an abnormal week for us between the little guy’s sleep study, his bad luck since (a cut on his hand one day then falling face first on our linoleum floors today – poor guy!), my exhaustion since the sleep study, and weaning. Yes, after much back and forth between my heart and […]

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 […]

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 […]
