Why is getting diagnosed such an hassle

It has been a battle since this began. The day before yesterday, my position will be long, and it will probably be difficult to understand in some areas because of my lack of concentration and mental cognitive skills, but I will get to that later. Sometimes wish i could use a …

When a Mom is "Alone" with her Thoughts -- Video

Once upon a time, a mom was alone with her thoughts... We all know that's a fairy tale.

There's a running monologue in my head 24/7, that is often both nonsensical and disorganized. If I were an internet browser, I'd have too many tabs open at once and quite a few webpages would be crashing.

No matter how many lists, apps, and calendars I have,  it's hard to keep track. Life stuff. Work stuff. Kid stuff. Love stuff. Health stuff. Home stuff. And how to prioritize which…

Men at play

I do not understand the way my husband and son play together.



Yes, I have read the research around the importance of fathers and the way they play with their children. I understand that fathers encourage their children to take more risks and explore the world. I also understand how important it is for…

Many of us can remember taking music lessons in our youth. For some, it was a passion that lasted until our adult years. For others, it was something our parents wanted us to do. Either way, we benefitted from learning music more than we realized. Recent studies show young children who take music lessons can boost brain growth.

A Picture is worth a thousand words, a story is worth a thousand pictures

I recently read an article in the ‘Pathways to Family Wellness’ where Joseph Chilton Pearce, best selling author on child development, discusses how imagination can save our children from becoming violent.  He explains, “The child without imagination is subject to the immediate sensory environment bombarding them, without any alternatives. If his sensory environment is unpleasant, demeaning, insulting or threatening, his survival drive gives him no choice but to…

Are Cell Phones Making Your Child Sick?

Cell phones have become a way of life and more and more I see them in the hands of youngsters.  Many families no longer have a house phone (mine included) because everyone is reachable via cell.  Have you ever seen that commercial where everyone is fighting over the minutes in the data plan?  It goes something like…

Our Next Leg - Weeks 9-11

Hello MBC'ers!  My daughter, Dylan, suffered a severe asthma attack and seizures this Mother's Day (May 13th).  She was without oxygen for quite some time and now is battling brain damage.  The focus of my blog is now on the next leg of our journey....

These last few weeks have been rough.  Other words that come to mind to describe it are shitty, unbearable, exhausting and nerve-racking.  Dylan has been dealing with seizures and brainstorming (which means she had…

Hey You, Whoever You Are....





As I've said before, I'm convinced that motherhood kills your brain cells.  It's certainly done a number on my memory cause I can't seem to get anybody's name straight in my household.  I don't know how the hell that Duggar family does it when I can't even keep track of the four of us!

Back when I was a teacher, I was…

What Type Of Thinker Are You, Learning About The Mind From Temple Grandin

The mind of Temple Grandin is fascinating because it works very differently from most of ours.  She is a visual thinker, thinking in pictures.  Recently there was an HBO movie about her life, starring Claire Danes, that won many awards.  The movie beautifully illustrates how her mind works.

Grief Has Its Own Timetable

Dear Moms,



After the death of someone we love our grief experience and overall healing has everything to do with our relationship to the deceased, the intensity and depth of the love we felt for them and our degree of faith in a hereafter.  In the immediate aftermath of a person's death, it's hard to breathe and everything hurts. We feel shattered, bewildered and frightened. Sometimes, however, grief shows us its own timetable and can be delayed or complicated.  I experienced a long… Continue

wishing for the parental do-over

When Jordan was first injured, I searched for reason in every corner of my life, of God’s promises, in every insignificance I could find. I said very often to my sister that if it were Jordan’s destiny to be nearly fatally injured by her babysitter and to live with permanent brain injury, then I was glad God chose me to take care of her because some mothers would abandon their newly imperfect babies to the oh well Dumpster.…

Hi there anyone - freaking out about future career, anyone else?
