There’s Value in Fat

  Fat. How many of us have it on our minds today? How many of us are feeling ashamed by it? Well I’m here to tell you (and myself) that there’s value in fat. And we, every single inch of us, are valuable. I’m sitting here in the light of my SAD light, trying to […]

Strange Happenings

There have been stttrrrrannnggeee happenings in my house as of late.  What started of with me getting a bout of OCD when it came to cleanliness (which has now found some balance) has turned into a lot more.  Of course I’ve been exercising and eating well despite the fact that losing one pound takes a […]

This is How I Procrastinate From Folding Laundry!

Aside from the nauseating Jack Johnson music, that totally made me want a baby hummingbird.  It almost made me LIKE the Jack Johnson hit, almost.  Usually his music more just makes me wanna cut myself.  Maybe it’s because I listened to the album on loop for hours at a time playing Puzzle Pirates whilst pregnant […]

Getting to School in One Piece

Wow. I had to pull out all my super mommy stops today to get Silas to school.  He’s been saying he doesn’t want to go and now it’s getting into melt down mode.  I don’t blame him.  He’s with a new teacher and some new kids.  Now he has to sit at a desk and […]

Progressing Through Autism: The Dentist

I was so proud of my boys today.  It sure seems like I am saying that a lot lately. They did such a good job getting their teeth cleaned at the dentist! Rewind two years ago. I was taking Silas and Isaac to the dentist for the second time.  Really, all the dentist did was […]

Letting Go

  My boys have been all about bikes lately.  Bike bike bike bike bike, it’s what they would do all day if they could. Isaac usually goes to the neighbours house and grabs their two wheeler (with training wheels).  We only have one helmet and he would use theirs and Silas would cruise around on […]

I Want To Cut Off My Nose

  Everyone is outside right now, enjoying the sun (finally!) on the first day of summer.  I am inside with a pile of snot-rags beside me. This. sucks. Moms, have you ever noticed…after having babies…that sneezing is a pretty dangerous thing?  You kinda have to cross your legs realllly tight and hope for the best.  […]

Brain Health

If you didn’t see yesterday’s post you probably should.  Because it’s a cute little song that Silas and Brent recorded together and it’ll make you smile.  It’s only a minute long. It’s been a whirlwind of a year for me so far.  Some really crappy things have happened, none that I’m willing to blog about…ya […]

The Ball is Rolling

So I got a call from child development this morning.  At first it was disheartening, this lady was really confusing.  She had me thinking that Silas was in some sort of limbo stage.  Her program only deals with children enrolled in pre-school or school and Infant and Child development only deals with Children up to […]

Dr. Appointment Today

Autism…autism?? The A word?? The doctor made me say it a couple of times to get used to it…she showed me where the tissues were and made sure I was going to have a good cry when I get home. Made sure I would be ok and that Brent will be ok. He pointed out […]

New Words and GARDEN PHOTOS!!

Ikey is saying new words almost daily!! Yesterday he said “squish” and “cheers”. This morning he said “fish”. So now he can say: Mama (which sounds like mumum), Dada (which he yelled out when Brent opened the door yesterday), row row row, up, this and that (depending if he wants this or that 🙂 ). […]

Bloggy Cleanse Fest Extravaganza

Wow, I came on here and then I got distracted by other web sites.  Since I’m getting close to weaning Ikey I’m in the market for a good cleanse.  I’m pretty much decided on the Master Cleanse because it’s cheap and I like the idea of fasting for many reasons.  I think that fasting helps […]
