ABC’s of SPD: A is for Attitude

Round 5 of Blogging through the Alphabet is starting this week on Ben and Me. I have said a few times I wanted to participate but never jumped on board, so here I go! I wasn’t sure if I would pick some random topics or try to stay within a specific topic. You can probably […]

Breakthrough in Sensory Processing Disorder Research

Recently there has a new breakthrough study in Sensory Processing Disorder Research. I’m only going to paraphrase it, but you can read the full article from UCSF where they explain their Study Reveals Biological Basis for Sensory Processing Disorders. As a parent with children that have SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) this is big news. As […]

Homeschooling Sensory Seekers

Day 2 of my 5 Days of Homeschooling with Special Needs is “Homeschooling Sensory Seekers.” Although our three children are very different in many ways they do all have one thing in common – sensory seeking. Our oldest is on the Autism Spectrum, and as you may know, many children on the Autism spectrum exhibit […]

Weekly Wrap-up: Rocky Recovery

This week started off with our little guy’s surgery on Monday. It started off as I expected. He isn’t a “morning person” for one (just like his momma!), so he was crying about even going to the hospital. Then he refused to put his name bracelet on once we checked in. Then he screamed about […]

I’m not very Social (Seriously!)

You may find this hard to believe, but I’m not very social. I know what you’re thinking! I post all these fun pictures that make me look outgoing! Plus, you know how even my “condensed versions” of stories or blog posts are still pretty long, so clearly I have a lot to say, right? Yes, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Catching Up… Again

I feel like I was finally catching up on things when we went out of town for a few days. We had such a great trip visiting family and friends it was hard to come back! I was able to post my Fishing Fridays because I had great reception at my Grandparents’ Lake House, but […]

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 […]

What a week!

Well, I took some of the advice that I deserved a little break, and I really haven’t been feeling well, so I took one! It really has been a crazy week! The boys will now have therapy 3 times a week. I’m still trying to grasp how to work our homeschooling around this, and I […]
