Autism Awareness Day 2017

I wanted to say a special THANK YOU today, on International Autism Awareness Day, to all the beautiful souls touched by this "label". It is especially (ironically) fitting for me this weekend, when I personally was touched and blessed by some such beautiful souls. A THANK YOU to the kind, loving, patient boy who spent 3 hours swimming around the pool with my son yesterday at a pool party. My 6-year-old son was surrounded by a dozen fun loving 11-year-old [...]

Lunar Eclipse & Cleansing Smoke

          Tonight with this first lunar eclipse of 2017, and a full moon in Leo, it marks a great shift in our conscious evolution as a species. We are facing our collective demons, and being forced to stare them down to be rid of them for good. The ground is shifting under our feet and we have to decide whether we will let that knock us off our feet onto the ground, or keep our knees [...]

Questionable Carnivals

Motherhood Today we went to one of those questionable carnivals…you know what I’m talking about, right? The ones you go to, pay for a wrist band so your kid can ride everything a zillion times, then you take a look at the rides and you question their safety? You constantly wonder if the screws holding the pieces that are holding you were tightened all the way? And if you’re going to enjoy the ride or plummet to your [...]

How to Give Medicine to your (Highly Sensitive) Child in 33 Easy Steps

If you are blessed with a highly sensitive, or sensory processing challenged child, you already know that some things are, well, let's say, more of a challenge for us parents as well. Like administering medicine for example. Which can be extremely stressful to a parent who is trying to help their child heal from an illness.  I am the first to hold off for a good long while before giving a fever reducer or an antibiotic if its not warranted. [...]

The Magic Formula

The universe is ALWAYS speaking to us, sometimes in subtle ways, other times, more like a bonk on the head. That is a given, there is nothing we have to "do" to have it speak to us. We do, however, have to take the time to LISTEN. Which often means being more aware, creating space for that awareness by being still, pausing, listening, and being open to what is being said. The week before last for me was a doozy. I [...]

Loss is Loss

Yesterday, we had a bit of a trying day with my family. Nothing major, just everyone being in a funk at the same time. It seems the more people I talk to lately, it's kind of like a cosmic epidemic of funkiness at the moment. Seems like realities are shifting, systems are getting upgraded, our world is changing and at times it feels like "forward progress is STOPPED" intermingled with "EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART" and a dash of "WHAT THE HELL WAS I [...]

Our BIG Night

  Every night we have a routine. It has pretty much been consistently the same, with a few slight variations  since my son was about 3 months old. Relaxing music on his iPod plays in his room, we do bath time (I must restrict the number of Hotwheels cars he is allowed to bring into said bath to 7, don't ask), I, or his Dad, or both,  put on his pajamas, we read a book or two, I "help him" brush his [...]

Where will YOU go?

Tiger, tiger, burning bright... Every night as part of my son's bedtime routine, we pick 1 or 2 books to read. My son has loved books since he was a toddler (as do I) and his collection started even before his birth. So the nightly reading can range anywhere from"Everyone Poops" (no I'm not kidding and yes, he's been potty trained for years) to Ranger Rick magazine, to "The DK Encyclopedia of the Human Body" (limited to 5 [...]

The Highly Sensitive Gardeners

Gardening to me is therapeutic. I love being outside surrounded by nature, feeling with wind, the sun, and the soil between my fingers. Planting seeds, or a tiny plant, is like the opportunity to aid in bringing forth new life into this world. You plant them, nurture them, tend to them, and wait, wondering what exactly will come of the hard work and love that you’ve put into the process. My 4 year old son and I often garden together. [...]

Life Lessons from a Four-Year-Old, Vol. 1

Last weekend we had a full, fun, exhausting day, which included me attending a birth starting in the wee hours of the morning, then coming home and putting on my "Super Mom" hat, picking up my son and taking him to a birthday party. It was fun, but overwhelming at times. I was beyond exhausted. On our way home, I had to stop at Publix as we were completely out of a few staples my 4-year-old son can't do without. [...]
