All the Moms in the House say… Caayyy-ake!!!

Listen up to all my mommy friends. I’m far from perfect. Let’s get that out there first. Let’s talk about mommy time, cake and being less judgmental.  Here’s the thing… I’ve been a workaholic, adrenalin-seeking mom for almost 8 of my 15 professional years, sheesh, and now in a round-about-way I’m a stay-at-home-lose-my-marbles-daily kind ofContinue reading “All the Moms in the House say… Caayyy-ake!!!”

Amateur Therapy Hour

I am an experienced communicator. Not just a little bit. It’s pretty much the core of all I have ever done in my career. I’ve recently had the aha moment that it’s because of this natural tendency to understand visual cues, translate people’s wants, find middle ground and all kinds of other puzzles that comeContinue reading “Amateur Therapy Hour”

A guilty kind of thankful 

I have been stewing on this feeling for more than a week now. There is a huge guilt overshadowing this entire two weeks of spirited festivities. I haven’t been in the spirit really at all. Yes, we’re exhausted, and yes, we don’t see an end in sight so I think that Ground Hog Day feelingContinue reading “A guilty kind of thankful “

Learning how to measure  time 

We live in a world of dates, deadlines and milestones. I catch myself measuring each special moment and holiday in reference to “last year” or the “last time.” The good news is we are beyond grateful for having the chance to say these words. We loved those moments like they might really be our last.Continue reading “Learning how to measure  time “

A little slice of crazy

Beautiful night to sit outside after dinner. Even if it’s not a peaceful or relaxing moment.  Just a little peek into our special kind of craz here. Manis/pedis are NOT fun this little hyper-sensitive busy bee.  Bubba doing what he does best, distracting Reese during one of her not so fun sensory overload moments. NoticeContinue reading “A little slice of crazy”

Move over Hiccup! There’s a New Inventor in town

The heart on this boy moves me to tears more often than I can handle admitting. We have secretly been feeling for a while that this boy’s destiny is tied to his sister’s and in turn helping many others. So I admit we embrace small moments to teach about helping others. But nothing over theContinue reading “Move over Hiccup! There’s a New Inventor in town”

This Special Road: Giving to Others

I am repeatedly blown away by people’s support for our journey. Both dear friends and complete strangers praise our strength and give selflessly of their love. I admit it helps even if only for a second to know someone is recognizing it’s not an easy road. But here’s the other side. I am reminded daily thatContinue reading “This Special Road: Giving to Others”

One Month and Counting…

It’s been a long haul… We try and take it a day at a time, but every once in a while we hold our breath and put these milestones out there defying superstitions to shut us down. We will keep counting silently for as long as it takes. #epilepsywarrior #onemonth #seizurefree #okwithchange #wearpurple via InstagramContinue reading “One Month and Counting…”
