Good question. Here are a few tips that have worked for me:

I’m a mommy to two little kids (3 and 5 years) writer, editor, wife, household executive, chef (sometimes), short order cook (most of the time), playmate and nag (hang your coat up, please!) I’m also now classified as a power mom, which makes it sound like I either know what I’m doing in this mommy job, have lots of important, exciting things going on while I’m doing my mommy job; or some kind of superpowers, which, other than a set of bionic ears and breathtaking speed at the sound of a blood curdling cry, is not the case.
Mommy Truths is where I chronicle the lessons and insights of my experience raising young kids. Writing about the craziness, silliness, and eye-opening ah ha! moments of my days keeps me sane. It’s how I process the mommy job in all its isolation, frustration and joy. Plus, I like to share.

Key trends: 90% of parents share their beds with a child and most mommies let their kids watch more TV than they'd prefer. But they don't lose sleep over it.
I have been blogging since...

Most parents find that training their non-disabled children for life's activities is challenging enough. However, parents of physically challenged children have to be especially creative to make sure that their young people learn the daily life skills that they need to be self-sufficient. Occupational…
