About Me

Most days, you’ll find me driving my kids around, watching Real Housewives, cussing at the pile of laundry that never ends and laughing at the hilarious things my kids do. I am always ready to hop in the car and find my next adventure, even if it’s just Target.

I thought I had life figured out until my daughter Remy was born 8 years ago. She came into this world as perfect as can be but then everything changed. When she was 9 months old, she had seizure that would change her life in a way I could never have imagined. From hospital stays, developmental delays, a diagnosis of autism and rare form of epilepsy called PCDH19, I didn’t have the kind of tools I needed to navigate the world of special needs parenting.

Theres been a reason I haven’t been as present on IG as I once was. 

its because Ive had my head buried in a new project.

I will announce it on Monday October 4th. 

If you want to know NOW, you can.

Or (Link in BIO) as we IG’ers like to say. 

This has been the biggest project Ive had the pleasure of working on. 

And I get to do this with 4 of my autism mom friends. The friends who have gotten me through one of the biggest depressions Ive had in this special needs mom journey. 

They are @fit.for.the.fight @justjean_wm @realtalkwithtash &rubycakesofca
Shannon, Jean, Tash and Brittney. 

I will tell you more about them in another post. 

But if you want to hear the BIG secret before anyone else does, 
Go to the link in my bio and click on the link. You will know before the world does,

When the little sister can help the big sister. When Nora was born, it was REALLY hard to care for a new born and a special needs toddler. 

I remember thinking a thousand times “I can’t wait for the day that Nora can help me with Remy”

Cause at the time, they both needed 1:1 support. 

I cried so many times because I couldn’t take both of them anywhere by myself. 

Especially when Nora was mobile. 

One kid running one way, and the other kid running the opposite way. 

Yesterday at the pumpkin farm, I had a moment where I realized, wow, Nora can now help Remy. 

She’s such a good “little big” sister. 

Do you struggle with multiple kids? Are your kids at the age where one can help the other? 

Do they? 

Id love to know your thoughts and experience. What stage are you in? 

Let me know in the comments.

Quick eye lash and blush tutorial. Let me know in the comments if I should do more of these. 

Or just tell me to go away and shove it 😉
Meet Tyson. This space here on IG is all about special needs parenting. 

So in here, you'll mostly see my daughter Remy. 

But fun fact, I actually have 4 kids. 

2 of which are teenagers. 

This is Tyson. I wanted to introduce you to him.

He's 16 and the kindest person you'll ever meet. He's as calm and collected as they come. Which is probably a shock for him that his mom is anything but calm and collected 😉

He has a gift in connecting with animals and can tell you anything you'd ever want to know about nature and space. 

They say a person's personality comes with them at birth and I'd say that's true for Tyson. He's always been the happiest person just living life. 

He's a man of very few words but when he says something, pay attention because simple wisdom is the only thing that comes out of his mouth. 

One day he told me "mom, I lost weight" and I said "I could tell, wow, what are you doing?" And he said 
"I just stopped eating so much" 

Yes, that'd do it. 😂 
What more do you need to know. 

When it comes to being a big brother of a medically fragile sister, he has been the calm in our storm. Never reacting in tense situations of seizures and behaviors. 

I'm lucky to even know him but I get the extra special privilege of being his mom. 

He's a prime example of how we think we are here to teach our kids, but Tyson has taught me more than I could ever teach him. 

If you're ever lucky enough to meet him, consider yourself blessed. 

Just wanted to quickly introduce him as you will probably see very little of him in this space. 

Thank you Tyson for making an appearance. 

I love you so very much.
