Autism Service Dog

Every since Mathew received his diagnosis of Autism I have been researching constantly. There are so many ways to help out a kid on the spectrum but a lot of them are considered alternative methods and therefore not covered by insurance or recognized by health professionals as being extremely helpful. Thus far we have been blessed with doctors who were ok with trying some of the alternative ways of dealing with the problems. One way is to get a specially trained service dog. Typically people…

My BEST TIPS for Back to School Shopping

I just had the BEST, BEST day with my 6 year old.  She’s about to head into Grade 1, and we hit the mall for some back to school shopping together.

Do you look forward to back to school shopping or is it something you dread as the school year approaches?

I love shopping for anything or anyone, but I’ve learned that shopping with 3 kids can be a challenge… each waiting for the other to try on different items.  Eventually the boredom sets in and it’s hairy-scary…

Where to Find Discount School Supplies?

While buying school supplies, the quantity purchased do matter a lot. In case if you are buying school supplies in smaller amount, you would not probably notice the price. However, the situation may change if you are trying to purchase the entire list of school supplies for your child's school. Moreover, when school starts and you have no low-priced school supplies available and just expensive substitutes are available, then you would definitely have to pay a lot for school supplies. Let us…

subscription boxes

There are so many subscription boxes out there these days. You can get a box of surprise goodies for just about anything. I decided that it might be fun to try some out and write about my impressions of them. After compiling a list of the ones that I had heard of I decided that the list was too small and limited. If this was going to be done right I needed some variety in there.

What better way to find huge lists of something than on GOOGLE?! Boy did I dive in head first without…

Product Review: Leave-In Conditioner / Protection

Product Overview:

A number of conditioning products are in the market, but they contain harmful chemicals, silicone and synthetic ingredients that can really damage your hair.

At the same time, many families enjoyed the closeness and fun of the bonding and fun of summer vacation. One way to keep the fun going throughout the school year is to create a family game.

Something Special to Share With The Kids On the Last Night of Summer Holidays

Well, the last night of summer is fast approaching, and I’m feeling sentimental about the end of another summer with my kids.  While I was thinking about all this last week, I got an idea that I am happy to share with all of you.  This little idea is not based on a family tradition, but is a new idea that I will be trying in my home on the last night of summer.  I thought you might like it too!

So, when my three children crawl into bed on that last exciting night before starting a new…

Just five more minutes, Mom

As mentioned before, when it comes to mornings, I am awake and ready to go. This ability served me well in middle school and high school when I was responsible for getting myself awake, dressed and to school (via the bus or my own two feet) on time. I set my own alarm and I…

Broccoli-Cheese Chowder

So on my Facebook page there have been a few requests for a recipe that we made a few nights back. Not wanting to deprive anyone of one of the best soups I have decided to add it to the recipe archives. This is not a family recipe on either side. Oddly enough we got it from our local health and wellness center but it doesn’t seem to be on the especially healthy side.

What Does it Mean to be Brave?

What Does it Mean to be Brave?

I don't listen to the radio very often. But I did the other day. So it was the first time I heard this song. I almost switched the station, but the first line caught me, then the rest took me by storm and left me in…

Planning Ahead, Birthday Edition

Trying to plan a birthday party with 3 kids running around is rough. Today, I am sharing my planning methods that help me to be stress free and enjoy the planning process!

Days like today make me so thankful.

This morning, Ricky played while mommy was productive. We went for a bike ride, had lunch on the deck and played in the sandbox. We went to the park and for a long walk with our friends. And now he’s napping – and I can work again.

I am so blessed to be able to spend so much of my time with him. That I can work from home and still take care of him at the same time – not every day, but some days. That I can feel fulfilled in my career AND as…

Rag Wreaths

I was taught how to make homemade rag wreaths late one night by an amazing young woman. She had gotten so good at making these wreaths that she could have turned it into a business if she had wanted to.

A spontaneous trip to Hobby Lobby (the best craft store ever) led to the purchase of wreath forms. She promised that the wreaths would turn out better with a wreath form instead of the old wire hanger I had tried to use when teaching myself. I also learned that I had been making my…
