Being a Mom is the hardest job, you never know if you are doing it 100% and you question lots of "Mom Life" moments. When you have a child with special needs those moments are magnified and every aspect of life seems to throw itself at you in ways you never knew could exist. Life itself has changed forever and you will wish you could live forever to make sure your child is always cared for the way you do.
Advocating for her is hard sometimes. Not only do I have to be her voice, but I have to be the "voice" of her disabilities and abilities . Sometimes I have to talk about her in a way that for me is really hard. As a special needs parent you really try to uplift your child, you try to make them feel important and having an optimistic approach is generally the best option. If you think negative all the time because you can't get over the fact that there are things that will always be different, good luck you wont make it in this mom life....
My tribe is strong and kind. My tribe is real with humility. My tribe sees beauty in all things. My tribe is raw with respect. My tribe understands the power of dreams. My tribe beats with one heart. My tribe is different not less... -K-
Being a mom is rewarding . It's difficult yes and you will constantly question yourself. You will make mistakes and you will triumph while you accomplish some pretty amazing things in life. Being mom is hard though. Sometimes you forget about yourself but you'll still smile because you put your tribe first. Some days you'll run on coffee fumes and rush out the door. You'll be amazed at how much you can do when you need to get those little ones places on time. Being a mom is magical.
Life is sometimes uncomfortable... why you may ask? ..things happen that are hard on us.. changes take place that we didn't think would ever happen and this is life.
Being a special needs mom is an experience beyond your wildest dreams that's for sure. It's hard and emotional and it makes your soul older than it should faster than you thought possible.
Adulting is not easy, at times we even throw tantrums when we have to "adult" then we add kids to our flock and responsibilities double, this is life...
Sometimes we find a way to balance the hectic world around us and other times we throw in the towel. Maybe the pile of laundry was too high or the coffee wasn't strong enough but we all get to one of those roads in life... sometimes the day takes it toll and we too need naps.
When life hands you lemons go buy some tannerite and blow them up it and will rain lemonade.... There are so many times where I sit there as a parent and try to get a better understanding of my daughter
As parents to an autistic little daredevil I often find myself more and more pondering and day dreaming what magic hides within her head...
