Is Your Kid a LEGO Feeler?

Isaiah doesn’t get to watch real TV. It’s not because I don’t want him to have screen time necessarily. Let’s face it, when you’re a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom who blogs and designs, a little screen time is like a vacation in the tropics with a fou-fou drink. He doesn’t watch TV┬ábecause I don’t trust what’s […]

The Elephant In The Room Was Dyslexia

Tears. Last year was the year of tears. It was the year of me secretly wishing he would actually, really want to go to “real” school and actually really like it. It was also the year I knew he could not actually go to real school because I knew he could not read. Last year […]

Advocating for Your Child Blog humor movies parenting raising a boy tic disorder

I’m not saying YOUR child doesn’t have anxiety. I’m saying just because mine likes to control everything doesn’t mean HE does.

I think I may have over-advocated for my son a few weeks back. You didn’t think there was such a thing did you? It’s kind of like Munchausen by Proxy, only not. I wasn’t making him sick or faking symptoms or anything. No, instead I was willing to accept a list of possible disorders based […]

All I Ever Wanted Was to be Kitty Forman – The Best 70s Mom Ever

I often describe myself as trapped in the 70’s with all of the rainbows and unicorns. All I ever wanted when I was growing up, was to be a mom. Now that I am a mom. I realize all I ever wanted to be was a mom in the 70s. I am not the soccer […]

Isaiahisms Vol 2

It’s that time again. Actually. I forgot last week. Sorry. I think I have too many things going on, but not so many that I can’t share with you, by popular demand, and my own delusions of grandeur, or ridiculous narcissism when it comes to my son. The new blog: IsaiahDotCom. Actually he demanded it. […]

Isaiahisms Vol 1

By popular demand, and my own delusions of grandeur, or ridiculous narcissism when it comes to my son. I created a new blog called IsaiahDotCom. Actually he demanded it. I know you might not have enough time or inclination to read another blog. So every week you will find a recap here. But if you […]

My Kid Has A Tic And He Thinks it Makes Me Mad

I looked back at Isaiah from the front seat because a movement caught my eye. “What ya doing, Izze?” “It’s just my tic mom.” “What’s your tic telling you to do?” “It’s telling me to lock and unlock.” We’re at a stoplight so I look behind me and sure enough his hands are making a […]

It’s Gigantic!

This week, it is my honor to co-host my favorite blog-hop! (Besides mine, shameless plug) When the call went out for new sentences for Finish the Sentence Friday I thought about how much I enjoy the topics that can be turned to the funny side of things. So I offered “Once I saw the biggest…” […]

If Isaiah Had a Million Dollars

One of my least favorite games that my sister and I play is “What Would We Do if We Won The Lottery?” We always buy lottery tickets as a team, especially when we are miles away from our home. (We are convinced based on the median income in our specific set of suburbs that the […]

Indoctrination Into Thankful

My good friend Lizzi over at Considerings started something a while back called Ten Things of Thankful. It’s an all weekend show where lots of amazing bloggers participate in taking stock, looking at their life and reminding themselves what they have to be thankful for. I have often wanted to participate, but really struggled with […]
