I Haven't Forgotten!

Posted on February 26, 2018 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (0)
I haven't given this place enough attention lately. I have been so busy with running the kids to their appointments and working on the Etsy shop (link below). I am working on getting the word out there about the hearing aid charms. So many people have said they love the idea! I love all of the out pouring of encouragement! 
It has really been building my excitment. I may not...

Perfect Christmas Morning

Posted on December 25, 2017 at 10:25 PM Comments comments (0)

You dream of the perfect Christmas morning. You make plans to wake up before the kids and set an alarm for 6am. The morning of you wake up make your cinnamon rolls, get your makeup on, and have the fireplace going (real or fake). You get ready to see the kid’s reactions as they see what Santa brought them.

Nope. Both kids have been struggling with a head cold.

Reindeer In My Tree

Posted on December 10, 2017 at 10:25 PM Comments comments (0)

There is very few store bought decorations on my Christmas Tree. For the past several years the kids and I have made homemade ornaments to hand on our tree. It has become a tradition. I wanted to share with you this years pick.

We dont just make one or two for our tree. Each child makes one for grandparents. So in total we usually make 8-10 decorations. This year we chose to make reindeer out of popsicle sticks.

Grocery Store Melt down

Posted on March 27, 2017 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (2)

You are walking through the grocery store. It doesn’t matter which one or even what city. You are either there for one thing or for many things. There it is, that sound you hope you don’t hear, a child screaming or baby crying. Do you sneer at the mother or father? Do you tell them to control you children? Or, are you the mother or father of the screaming child?

I caught myself the other day walking through our local Wa...

Life in the Middle of Hearing Impaired

Posted on March 11, 2017 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I am a mom of children with disabilities and disorders. Now don’t get me wrong. I know moms with children that have a harder time then we do. I’m not discounting their struggles, stresses, or strength. This is what I am experiencing on my journey.

My toddler is deaf (socially correct “hearing impaired”). My 6 year old has been diagnosed with ADHD and has been tested for hearing loss that determined there i...

Time

After a day of frustrations, I was watching my 6 year old and wondered, "When did he get so big?" He used to be this short, chubby baby with rolls on rolls. Now he is this tall, thin boy who can reach the sick without tip toes. His chin comes over the counter and he can see what is going on. Of course he still needs a step stool to turn the faucet on, but he doesn't need help to reach the sink. He helps prepare meals and cleans the table after dinner. He sweeps and mops. He gathers...

Homeschool

Posted on February 3, 2017 at 12:05 PM Comments comments (0)

We started our homeschooling journey 6 and a half months ago, July 25th of 2016. I have learned that it is frustrating, there are days that you just don't want to do it, then there are times that you can get it all done in 30 min (Kindergarten), there are days that we field trip and take notes, and then we just don't get to it. It makes you crazy, your child cries, you want to cry, but the moment you see the face of "Oh! I got it!' your heart jumps for joy! We have only been at thi...

Old time Game Rooms

Posted on January 31, 2017 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (0)
A local chain store has brought back the game room. You know, the quarter machines we used to play as kids. Like the "claw grabber", packman , or even the horse that went nowhere. We would stick a quarter in and play until we got something or we ran out of quarters. It brought up memories, questions, and worries. Mom or Dad would give us a few quarters and we would play in the game room while they did the shopping. Nothing to worry about. Our parents didn't think anything of it. At p... Read Full Post »
