The Future I'm Trying To Change

Mother Knows Needs Best

Do you have a child with special needs?  Does your family think it's a good idea to tell you what you're doing wrong?  

My son is four years old and has been fighting a rare allergic inflammatory disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis.  Yeah, I still can't say it.  Although he has had this from birth, we didn't recieve a diagnosis until Hugh was 16 months old when they found a penny sized ulcer inside his tiny tummy.  One of the largest ulcers ever seen in a child that small.  That…

Learning Disabilities

I am a chatter box. I have a lot of conversations, in my travels through my daily day. I have, at times, heard a lot of misinformation about learning disabilities. So I'm going to give every one some super BASIC info on learning disabilities. Knowledge is power man. That way you don't look like a ding dong when you are stating something at a wine and cheese party.

Today has definitely been a rough day. It’s days like this that really make me sit down and wonder if I’m doing the right things, saying the right things, and getting her the help she needs.

Our 7 year old daughter, Veronica, is currently in a Partial Hospitalization Program at a local psychiatric facility. She was hospitalized about a month ago due to a full psychotic break, which was a first for her. Prior to that we were wondering if she was on the autism spectrum, but after the…

Helping My Non Verbal Child Be Happy

Waking up in a hotel room this morning, an out of routine place, Samuel started early.  His constant sounds demanding cereal won’t let us rest. Ralph distracted him with a couple of stroller rides but we finally pulled out the goods, much to Samuel’s delight. Our routine time for cereal snacks is between 3 – 5pm.  Not today, 10am.…

A Plan And A Purpose: What's Yours? A Child With Dwarfism Inspires Others

Soon after Samuel was born, I remember seeing a friend’s baby at the mall. I leaned over to get a closer look at the little girl. She was sleeping soundly in the stroller.

I marveled not at the color of her hair or her cute outfit but at how long her arms and legs were and how her breathing was calm and in perfect rhythm.  I was comparing her to Samuel whose chest could be clearly seen rising and falling and occasionally out of sync. This was one of the first signs my journey would be…

Mix Match Curriculum

Mix Match Curriculum

Since Lilly came home from the hospital we have been working on one goal or another. Since having A-man I have learned most babies things just happen. Yes, you nurture them but most of them will hit the milestones with very little effort.

Well with A-man it seems that way.

There's no short term developmental goals in the 5 developing areas of a child

You know that list of "Children's Book Titles You'll Never See?"

Well, here are some of our first thoughts on what we should call our blog:

Basic Essential Baby Items: 16 Baby Items that You Need to Care for a Newborn

Babies will never judge their parents for the amount of stuff that they had when they were little or didn’t have when they were babies.  In fact, most babies only need a few basic necessities in order to be adequately cared for and they don’t need a bunch of fancy things.  A baby will use most of their baby gear for a short period of time and they quickly grow out of it.  If you are expecting and have a limited budget, I would recommend that parents buy or register for the following…

Monsters Incorporated

For some time, Bunny has been experiencing a reoccurring nightmare.  She dreams monsters come in our house and eat our entire family, except for her.  She is left alone with no parents, no home, and no place to go.

Bucketful 'O Feelings

Emotions and feelings shouldn’t be a hard thing, although ask any man in an all-female household and he will tell you he is screwed when it comes to feelings and emotions.

Veteran Moms Needed

I'll admit it: There are worse things in life than a 5 year-old boy who loves to be with his mommy. Like famine, disease, another Kardashian reality show...But I really can't take it anymore, and I need some insight as to how I should deal with the obsession attention. (Before you go on, yes I know this won't last forever and yes I know there will be a day when I'll miss this, but for the sake of my sanity I must have coping mechanisms.)

When I leave the room for…

Growing Friendships in The Classroom


One of the topics I am asked about often is social skills.  The importance of social learning for all children, but especially children with hidden challenges & special needs cannot be emphasized enough.


In many of my adaptive yoga programs I've observed not only the 'bringing together' of mind and body, but also the bringing together of friendships, some unlikely on the surface at first, but then watching them growing spontaneously out of small groups sessions,…

Down Wit Dat

In January of this year, I found out that one of the twins that I was carrying had AVSD (Atrioventricular Septal Defect) and that along with this, probably had a chromosomal disorder.

Mothers and Daughters

Sometimes I wonder if I am screwing up my kids or if they are screwing up me.  A part of me has always thought that somehow my mother’s issues became my issues, and as hard as I try not to be like my mother…I’ve become my mother.  Frankly, I think mothers are the reason therapists have…

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
