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… 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
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
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
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
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 –
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!
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
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!
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
