Today I get to guest post over at Finding Ninee. Kristi has created this fantastic weekly series of guest posts. They began when Kristi mused about how nice it would be to live in a world where everyone's quirks and differences were celebrated - instead of focused on. A place where people could just marvel … Continue reading Our Land – Where Empathy and Wonder Rule
So I'm sitting in my bed feeling fairly crabby, and really not interested in writing - although I had every intention of doing so. I am reading people's work, I am considering watching some back episodes on my iPad. Then my son starts hacking. If you know me, then you know my son sleeps with … Continue reading I’m Always Confounding Things
This freakin' weather! Not everyone has the pleasure of living in the midwest. I am aware of that. And I am acutely aware of the fact that many people live places were the sun shines at least, oh I don't know; once every 4 days? Wow, that would be heaven. That would be like a … Continue reading Mojo vs. The Evil Dragon Lady
Once upon a time I wrote this blog. I wrote this blog under the guise of wanting to help parents of children with special needs. Most specifically sensory processing disorder, but also tic disorders, severe food allergies, environmental allergies and asthma. I also included spectrum disorders, because "They" were trying to place my child there. I … Continue reading Sensory Processing Disorder Can Be Funny Too

I read a Facebook post the other day, one in which a mother was concerned about her stepson's rambunctious playing style. He's 5, and she has younger girls. I understand, I do. I am the mother of … Continue reading I’m just a girl, parenting a boy.
Today was a triumph. Well for us anyway. I would say at this point (Isaiah is 7 now) he probably eats a better variety of food than most kids his age. Rarely balking at a vegetable, or a food combination, often asking to try something new. Yet there's a difference. The average child could have … Continue reading It’s still a triumph
We had the best Halloween party ever over the weekend. My friends said it was like a Pinterest Halloween party. That made me smile. I like Pinterest, but I'm not an addict 🙂 We had a lot of fun......But without further ado, I want to show you the piece de resistance; The stars starting slow … Continue reading The Competition is on! Bobbing for Apples
I just want you to know that your kids are awesome. They are the most well-behaved, kind kids. They were helpful and fun! I enjoy every minute I spend with them. So just remember that when you are frustrated. They are perfect. I wrote that note to a girlfriend this morning. I started to cry … Continue reading Please don’t forget, your children are Extraordinary!
So, I got this idea from a post I saw on pinterest about making a spiderweb puzzle to walk and challenge your kids, and as a plus I knew it would help sensory issues, like sensory processing disorder and sensory integration disorder. For any kid it was perfect for our gloomy and damp midwest fall. … Continue reading Rainy day balance game
