Mom Must Haves (for “me” time)

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.

Advocate like a Mother…

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.... 

Changes

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.

Hollow

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.

Take it Easy

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. 

Mom Life (a poem)

My day has begun and I think away... All the things I want to change and what brings today.. Bubble wrap my heart before it falls apart... I whisper to her promises of a lifetime before I depart... Every day is a new adventure that can take its toll... We breathe hope and speak passion trying to make our life whole...

You Are… (a poem)

The warrior in your heart is strong, You understand this world even when things seem so wrong.  You see things in your own way, You find ways to tackle each and every day.
