I just realized that I haven’t talked about our Autism journey enough on here, which is the whole reason I started this blog. If you are friends with me on Facebook you probably see posts about Jayce and pictures so you know a little about what’s going on, but I wanted to post an update here, too! My first post on this blog was sharing our journey to finding out Jayce was on the spectrum and you can read that HERE. I have also shared a few other Autism related posts including THIS post to encourage other parents who may have recently gotten a diagnosis and THIS post to share some of our daily challenges and struggles at the time.

Bath time is our favorite time. For a few reasons… The boys think it’s fun, they are getting clean which is a rare occurrence, and bath time means it’s almost bed time! 😉 I have tried several different products when it comes to kid’s bath products, but I especially love safe and non-toxic options when I’m using them on my children. We recently were gifted a few products from SoCozy and I LOVE them. Bonus, you can get them at Target. If you’re anything like me, you spend an embarrassing amount of time at Target. [Read more…]
Today I was a bad mom.
Today I looked at the crumbs all over the floor, the toys covering the living room, the frightening amounts of laundry that cover most of my bedroom, I thought back to all the times that I got too stressed out and raised my voice at my toddler, I thought about all the moments that I was on my phone when I should have been focused on my boys, I thought about all the times where literally all I wanted was to sleep and be alone, I looked at my to-do list that gets longer everyday and rarely gets a dent made in it, I thought about everything that I needed to do and every situation that wasn’t the way it should be and it hit me…
The mom guilt.

I started reading books to Jayce when he was just a couple of months old; he LOVES books and I enjoy the moments we spend together. Mostly because they are the only moments where he will actually sit still with me. 😉 Even before he knew what I was even saying, I would read to him, and there’s so much evidence that shows that it makes a huge difference in a little person’s development. Babies and toddlers can learn so much from their parents reading to them daily! One of my favorite ways to get him new books is Bookroo which is a monthly subscription for kid’s books. [Read more…]

If you’re anything like me, you don’t get your holiday shopping done early, you don’t get it done on Black Friday, and around early December you’re scrambling trying to get everyone’s gifts haha. This year for part of the boy’s Christmas gifts, I got some really cute toys and books from IncrediBundles! Not only is this site perfect for parents, but it’s also great for anyone that needs to buy gifts for babies and kids. It features all award winning products and it’s so easy and foolproof thanks to their bundles! [Read more…]
