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

Or

Walk A Mile In My Issues

 

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:

"My Kid Did What?"

"Oh .... You're Jimmy's Mom ................ "

"Why Jimmy Can Read, But Refuses To"

"Why Jimmy Can't Spell ... and Couldn't Care Less"

"How to Deal with School Refusal -- Wine, Xanax and ... Oh wait, you meant the…

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…

Sign Lanugage – A Multi-Sensory Approach to Communicating

Not all children respond to the same methods of teaching, especially those with special needs. Sign language has benefits for both those with and without hearing as it is a multi-sensory language!…

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

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.



My husband and I were devastated.

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…

Sari and Her Ray of Sunshine

There are certain people you come across in life who just always make you smile.  They are able to see the glass as half full and bring positivity wherever they go -- kinda like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day.  You can't help but to admire and respect these people cause they make you want to be a better person yourself.

 

My friend, Sari, is one of these amazing people.  I am in constant awe of her optimism, courage and strength.  She somehow juggles three kids,…

Stress Fracture

Stress fractures aren’t an actual break in the bone and you can’t really see them on an x-ray, but they are incredibly painful and if not treated, they can create more complex problems later.

I have a stress fracture right now, but it isn’t in my bones.

It is in my…

Healing Hands of a Sister

You can never truly understand a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes.  I don’t know what it’s like to be adopted, or to be given up at birth, and I don’t know what it’s like to have reactive attachment disorder (RAD).

The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

As I have confessed here a number of times, I haven’t always been able to write.  Well, I’ve always been able to write, I just didn’t have any confidence in my writing abilities.  When I was working in the corporate world, if I was required to write a letter, I would procrastinate for days until I made myself sit down at my computer and write.

Two More Days...But Who's Counting?

Two more days until the girls go back to school.  Less than 48 hours in a summer that hasn’t been very much fun. 

It has been the summer of RADishes, a three month struggle to help our daughters maneuver through the trials of reactive attachment disorder.  At times, it has been a nightmare.

Tilting at Windmills

 

The hardest thing about being a parent of special needs children is…

Wow, I can’t tell you what the hardest thing is because it keeps changing. When it was just Elliott with her RAD, there was a small chance I could keep all the balls in the air. I had a fairly good handle on her current issues and how she was handling them. She has made great progress over the last 10 months, but she still has her moments.
