Transitioning care and Homeschooling

My daughter will no longer qualify for the occupational therapy services she is currently receiving in about 6 months or less. I am not certain if this is because she is turning 3 and she would have to qualify for services through our school district, but they seem to be hinting at that. Anyways, the services she receives are MOSTLY free. OT is free, … Read More Transitioning care and Homeschooling

Tis the season

Tis’ the season… I’m not sure if I am an introvert or not. I think I just don’t like people sometimes, or maybe it’s my social anxiety. Anyways I love/hate the holidays. I love seeing people, but I get emotionally exhausted after so much interaction. I personally do enjoy family time, hanging out with friends, but I also need a break from events. I … Read More Tis the season

Hello Monday

I have been using Lightroom for a few days now to edit my photos, since my new camera uses RAW CR3 files, and my older version of Photoshop Elements did not support that specific file, and I really don’t LOVE Lightroom yet. I find it annoying that this program slows down my computer so much, just to edit some light/colors. I am paying monthly … Read More Hello Monday

Accidentally here – Gluten Free / Homeschool /ADHD / Food Allergies

These past few days have been a bit of an eye opener for me. I felt alone and cried over some stupid things. I felt like a failure as a mother because my daughter keeps having stomach issues, but after realizing that IF she has Celiac… I am not to blame. I know people who have it and contamination happens. Today I spoke to … Read More Accidentally here – Gluten Free / Homeschool /ADHD / Food Allergies

Being a mother to a child with food allergies… or possibly Celiac

My daughter has FPIES. And for the last few months we have gone symptom free, for the most part. We avoided trigger foods and opened up to new recipes and were able to introduce home made and store bought paleo pizza, muffins, and crackers (all wheat, oat and rice free), to Lillian. Today I sit here in my living room with a head ache. … Read More Being a mother to a child with food allergies… or possibly Celiac

It’s not up to me –

I can’t grant forgiveness. I know it seems silly but it’s what is going on right now. We discuss this every so often – “do you want to forgive them?” and I get a “Not yet” or a “No I am still mad at them.” Recently I got a, “They don’t treat you right, they never have…” kind of response. And I have to … Read More It’s not up to me –

Lillian is 18 months old!

Time flies when you are having fun being a mom. My daughter turned 18 months old yesterday and I still cannot believe how fast time is going by. I really do feel like she was born only a few months ago, but she is in fact a toddler now. She is almost walking (some of you know about her occupational therapy she gets a … Read More Lillian is 18 months old!

FPIES

I have talked about food allergies on here before and we have mentioned how my daughter might have FPIES, since all of her symptoms fit perfectly. We went to an allergist back in October 2018 and the allergist said all the tests came out normal, and that we should just watch what we feed my daughter. But we got no diagnosis at the time. … Read More FPIES

Don’t let other’s bring you down… just don’t.

It’s irritating when people try to bring you down. It’s even more irritating when you realize you have been letting certain people make a negative impact in your life for far too long, with out speaking up for yourself, or the ones you love. I make it fairly obvious that I suffer from MDD (major depressive disorder) and a social anxiety disorder. Don’t let … Read More Don’t let other’s bring you down… just don’t.

Let the home schooling begin!

We have officially de-schooled and now we have started home schooling. I got a lot of people who kept asking me how home schooling has been going, and so far so good. I need to work on my schedule with my son more but we are getting there, we are on our first week and I am slowly getting my son used to the … Read More Let the home schooling begin!

That’s life -quick post

This week has been a bit emotional for my family. My husband’s grandmother has been in the hospital for a few weeks and things went south last night when she had a reaction to something the hospital gave her and they had to do CPR on her. Later in the day she was unresponsive. A bit ago, I heard from my MIL that she … Read More That’s life -quick post

Slime Party with the kids!

Okay so you get the point – we made A LOT of slime. I bought a slime kit off of amazon recently and invited my son and his friend to make a bunch of slime today! The slime was super easy to make – it is suggested for children 12 and up – BUT if you have younger children (that won’t swallow little objects) … Read More Slime Party with the kids!
