About

I am a stay-at-home mother of three. There are only four years between the oldest and youngest and we’ve had some challenges along the road thus far. My oldest (11) so far is the fortunate one with no issues to complain about. The middle (10) has sensory processing disorder, and also attended speech therapy at school for two years. The youngest (7) spent three and a half years in speech therapy and 7 months in occupational therapy for speech problems and apraxia. There have been days when I’ve wanted to tear out my hair, days when I wish I still worked (no one truly appreciates a sparkling toilet), days when I wouldn’t change a thing, and days when I sit here looking at all I could be doing better. I think a lot of stay-at-homes go through these feelings and more. Friends of mine take for granted that I have lots of time on my hands and become genuinely surprised at how full my days are when we schedule time to get together. I started this blog to preserve the good things, sort through the not so wonderful, and maybe help someone feel they aren’t alone. There are a lot of small but humorous happenings in family life that are forgotten. I want to remember.
