Stop and Think
  The other day the Hubby and I took some time to go shopping.  I was in desperate need of good dress boots, a coat, and tennis shoes, so off we went.   As I was trying on shoes, I realized how hard I can be on A when she's picking out shoes.  Basically I'm...

Clean Up, Everyone do His Share!
  I've been doing loads of self reflection lately and have been learning so much about myself!   For instance:  I'm naturally a lazy person.  In my free time, I like to just sit, or watch TV, or read a book, or peruse Pinterest, or sleep...   On one hand, t...

What's Mine is Most Certainly Not His
  Tonight I walked to the sink to get the kids's toothbrushes ready.   I grabbed a tube of toothpaste and got A's ready.  Then, naturally, I did the same for Bug.   I was aware that I was taking a Huge risk.  But I chose to live life on the edge.   You see,...

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
  The one thing about SPD and childhood anxiety that I can count on is that just when I feel like things are settling down and we've found a good routine, something changes.   Take Tuesday for instance.  A woke up and was just plain Angry.  Her fists were c...

She's so Fancy. We already know.
  Anyone who knows A knows that she Loves all things fancy and frilly.  Those people have also begun to learn that A loves the glittery, sparkly, lacy things from a distance.   On the surface A is the kid one could buy all the cutesy, girly things for.  The...

There May be Money in Our Future
  Tonight the A and Bug were playing in their room.  Bug asked me if I wanted to come see his office.  I did, and sat down on the makeshift sleeping bag/chair.   When I asked what his job was, he said "prescriptions."   He then asked me what prescription I ...

  Yesterday was a beautiful day where we live!  We were able to take a picnic to the park, ride bikes, walk some trails, and throw some rocks into the creek.  At the end of January!   On the way home from the aforementioned outing, and after listening to A ...

Routine or Bust!
  In my blog post yesterday, I mentioned that A had been clinging to our routine lately.   Today I wanted to share a shining example of how drastic things got.   With all the holidays we've had lots of time at home together.  The Hubby, A, Bug, and me.  We ...

Birthdays. Who Knew?
  A just had a birthday, but the preparation for it began months ago.   I don't mean the prep on my end. Sure, I am making a Ton of things for the party, but I began my projects about a month before the party--so I'm in pretty good shape.   It was the prepa...
