It has been a while since I have posted on here, and for that I apologize. If you know me or have read my most recent published articles, you know that September was kind of a big deal for me and my family.
My oldest child started kindergarten on September 1st, after months of planning and prepping and IEP-ing with the school district. This was not an easy day for mama. As I watched that bus pull away I was so proud, yet I felt so vulnerable. My “heart” rode off with an anxious smile on her face, ready to embark on a new adventure.
She had a great day and has had 41 more great days since then. Together, we have adjusted into a new routine. Although there is always work to be done as a special needs parent, things are going very well.
Less than a week after my “baby” girl started kindergarten, my actual baby boy turned one. How did this happen? It has been a whole year since I labored my little man into the world on Labor Day 2015?!? Time really does fly. It is truly hard to believe. It is so rewarding, but a little sad, to watch him get so big so quickly. Even though he is on the verge of toddler-hood, I will keep him as my baby as long as I can.
Now, you can probably see why I have been little distracted and a lot emotionally exhausted over the past few months. As we have settled into our new normal, I have started submitting more articles for publication and hope to post here more regularly.
I would love to hear from you in the comments! Knowing someone is actually reading this will be great motivation for me to keep on writing.
See you all again soon!

Keep blogging mama! One day you will look back and be glad you did. Don’t put a lot of pressure on yourself, just blog when the time is right. At least that’s what I try to do.
Thank you. I love writing. I am so glad I started doing this. Thanks for the encouragement!
Both of your kids are precious!
I’m a mom of 3, and my youngest has special needs. Sometimes it seems like time is standing still (when he has a public meltdown), other times it’s flying by (my oldest gets her license next week!)
Keep writing & I’ll keep reading!:)
Thank you for reading and sharing! Yes, time is a funny thing when you have kids! Lol. Wow! A license is another big milestone. I have a little while to wait for that one! 🙂
Just saw one of your articles on Huffpost. You nailed it, “mom who struggles to get her sh*t together”! I am sure you already know it, but for those of us with special needs kids it is so good to see your perspective. Life isn’t Pinterest…love your writing. Thank you!! Thank you!’
Thank you so much, Celeste! I appreciate your kind words.
