WAHM: 5 Tips to Keep the Kids Occupied While You're Working

So my child, my cheeky little 22 month old, has somehow become smarter than I could have ever possibly imagined as an under-two-year-old. I’m not really sure if that’s just because I had no idea what to expect, or if he’s just incredibly brilliant. But I’m going with the latter because…duh, I’m his mom. And don’t all moms think their kid is basically the smartest thing since sliced bread?

Anyway, the kid is brilliant, I swear.

By 15 months, he figured out how to take apart our…

Shaving Cream Sensory Play

Shaving cream is a cheap and fun sensory item for kids to explore!

Usually I just squirt a bit on the kitchen table and they spread it out to draw or write letters, smear it to erase and start over. (This is great for kids just learning to write and also perfect for practicing spelling words!)

Last year we added sand and even water beads to the shaving cream. Both were big hits!

This week’s rain was the perfect time for some more shaving cream fun. I decided to just…

13 Things Already Learned In Houma

Moving gives you many different kinds of opportunities.  One opportunity I particularly enjoy is learning about the culture and community of the place we've been fortunate enough to be dropped in.  This town is unique and we have already started to learn new things.  Here is a list of what has been learned so far...

1.  Hebert is pronounced A-Bear.  This and many other interesting names will take some adjustment.

2.  A shopping cart is actually called a buggy down here y'all. …

REVIEWS: THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE "MEH"

Like many parents of children on the Autism spectrum, we have experiment with a variety of different tools to assist our son with things such as sensory overload, routine, and transitions. Some things have worked out well for us, some things not so much. Some things started out good and then the Navigator outgrew his need of it. Here is a review of some of the tools we have used and how they turned out.

First the good: ...…

Baltimore, Over the Rainbow and Back – Part 1 - from the archives; March 2013

 I really couldn’t write about this trip without including this part of it. This part, Part 1 is a little bit “cranky” – my apologies, in advance.

In early February we set off for DC’s third cruise, his second on Royal Caribbean. We didn’t have to fly for a change because the ship was leaving from Baltimore.

We drove down on Thursday…

Bait, Hooks & Tackle

Fishing season is off to a great start. We have two outings under our belt and only one hook through the foot, not a bad ratio. Things have changed a lot since last year. Cutting worms in half, no problem. Hooking bait thru the eyeball, not an issue. Our poles have doubled in size, we’ve got some fancy new lures, and the boys are able to sit still for five full minutes. That’s five minutes more than last summer!

Although we haven’t caught any fish yet our hopes remain high. I’m ready…

Since we lost our baby, I’ve become a better mom.

I realized something the other day. And it’s not something that made me feel like the most incredible person on the planet, to say the least.

Since we lost Addison, I’ve become a better mom.

Breathe that in for a second. It kind of hurts your heart, doesn’t it? At least, it hurts mine.

Don’t get me wrong – I was a great mom to Ricky before any of this happened. And I can honestly say that without getting a big head, despite how it sounds. But when we lost our baby girl,…
