How to be content with what you have…

This is something I struggle with on a daily basis. But, it's complicated. I love my family completely--I wouldn't change a thing about them. What I'm talking about is material possessions. I feel like with so much social media, all we see are things we should have, want or strive for. We should aim for … Continue reading How to be content with what you have…

Sooooo ready for summer…

Our whole house--seriously, summer can't come soon enough!! My son is ready for school to be over & getting him up in the mornings is getting to be more of a chore. My daughter is eagerly waiting for the beach. I'm just ready for a break from the daily grind. We planted our flowers weeks … Continue reading Sooooo ready for summer…

Vacation!

It's been a week since we got back from vacation & I still feel like I haven't adjusted! We took the kids to Legoland in Florida, stayed at the Legoland beach resort...basically went all out so that Dex & Piper could have a blast. The kids loved it, and while my husband & I had … Continue reading Vacation!

Mother/Son Night…

So, Dex & I went to our first Mother/Son night tonight through his school. My goodness, it was crazy!! I seriously felt like we were at a rave for kids. There was laser robot dancers, a crazy strobe light dance floor with a dj...laser tag, a Mario Party truck, trucks & k9 dog attacks. All … Continue reading Mother/Son Night…

New Year, New Plans…

It's been months & months since I last posted anything. Lots has been going on! We're 3 months in to my son's ABA therapy. It's been a big adjustment. And every time we feel we've gotten used to it, one of the PARAs quit, so then we have to start all over again with a … Continue reading New Year, New Plans…

A big problem with healthcare in this country…

Isn't it crazy that life would be so much easier if my husband & I divorced? Hear me out--we are considered to have excellent healthcare, so everyone keeps telling us. But in order for us to continue having excellent healthcare, my husband has to pay about $1800 a month through his employer. That's $1800 a … Continue reading A big problem with healthcare in this country…

What’s a “perfect mom”?

Let me be clear, I am in no way a perfect mom. I had someone make that comment to me the other day and it has bothered me since. I'm not sure exactly what a perfect mom even is. I love my kids, but they drive me nuts. I love spending time with them, but … Continue reading What’s a “perfect mom”?

So far…

So, after all that worrying I did about my son, Dex, starting school...he's been doing amazingly well. It's hard to get him to eat and get dressed in a timely manner, but other than that, it's been great. It's been 2 weeks, and as crazy as it sounds, he's been even better at home. I … Continue reading So far…

Letting our kids grow up…

My son started kindergarten today. I'm both happy for him and heartbroken, scared, etc. My husband & I met with his teacher, the school psychologist & principal yesterday to go over what the plan is for him and the evaluation for an IEP. He's in a great school & they all seemed like they know … Continue reading Letting our kids grow up…
