Yesterday when I went to pick up my son from daycare, he was playing and having a great time. The teacher was letting all of the kids in his classroom play with puzzles and my son was trying very hard to get the puzzle pieces into the right spot. It was fun to watch him play and learn a new skill. I…
Radishes really can’t hug, but then neither can RADishes.
Reactive Attachment Disorder is a disorder of relationships, so it isn’t surprising that children with RAD aren’t warm and fuzzy huggers. I never really noticed this with my daughters. I am a hugger, so I was always hugging them. I didn’t…
I have been working hard to get myself organized. So far, I’ve gotten the kitchen(mostly done), the living room done, and our lil’ homeschool/therapy room. Actually the boys spend most of their day in here. We do all their therapy in this room, ALL their Legos, and of course our schooling.
Homeschooling can be very expense & so is Autism, diabetes, pacemaker, & hypothyroidism. Mix it all up, and we are constantly broke. We are constantly thinking out the box, and looking to…
This picture may look like a silly Saturday morning pillow fight, but it's actually a great treatment I've discovered for my son's sensory processing issues. Miles just turned 7, and the older he gets the more concerned I've become about his developmental problems. I can't get any help from his school or our insurance company,… Continue

. . . I sit there with tears in my eyes and my heart breaking. I love these girls. All I want is the best for them. How can they hate me? How can they turn against me for the sake of "hanging out and dating"? It's not easy to dedicate your life to someone's welfare. I struggled so much for them. True, they didn't… Continue

Today was her first official day of physical therapy at Hope Haven Children's Clinic & Family Center. Yes, we've been working with them since she was born, but mostly at-home therapy. Today…Continue
Many people believe therapy is about resolving a crisis or healing a traumatic past and while these are worthy goals indeed, good therapy is also like good feng shui, because it is about exploring and making our noble intentions conscious and meaningful.
Balancing Yin and Yang energies in our romantic relationships is imperative. Think about balance within the context of our feeling afraid that the relationship with our significant lover will end because our mate will… Continue

My daughter has Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). She has it because she spent the first nine months of her life in a Russian orphanage.yes""> It wasn’t caused by anything she did, she just didn’t get the love, attachment and bonding that she needed as an infant. And then I adopted her. Unfortunately, as a grieving widow, I really didn’t have the emotional surplus to give to her, to help her bond and
rebuild her broken brain.…
For the past seven years I have been either pregnant, nursing, running after the kiddies or all of the above, and at the same time. I turned into a very physical, sensual person, when most of my life I had been quite passive…
It's that time of the month again! Only this time, I'm looking forward to it.... BUT I NEED YOUR HELP! If you're following our Marriage Experiment, you know it's the end of the month, and therefore time for us to embark on a new adventure together.

When you're stuck-in-a-rut, it's hard to come up with new ideas! Help! Do you have a favorite…Continue

So i haven't posted on here in a while. First and foremost I am happy to say that Iowa finally grew a pair and decided to allow gay marriage. I am SO PROUD to be an Iowan. We kicked California's ass and beat them too it. I am happy to say that today in Iowa you can legally love whomever you choose and that is a HUGE step in the advancement of the gay movement. I just hope that stupid people don't crash the occasion by bringing their bible thumping jesus freak crap. And then now Vermont has done… Continue
