Tweet Every mom has a superpower. You know that mom, the one that you are always in awe of? I bet you could name 3 or 4 of her superpowers, right? But, can you list your own? The other day, I was talking with a “twingle” mom (a set of twins followed by a single…who knew?) and I was in awe of how she juggled it all.  Conversely, she could not comprehend how I, as a differently-abled mom, kept up with 2 very able bodied kids. As we chatted, we realized that neither of us...

Tweet I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about sippy cups. So here’s my 2 cents… As a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), I have been taught to avoid sippy cups all together. The reason behind this instruction is based on the forward positioning of the child’s tongue when drinking from a sippy...

Tweet This is the true story of how I became a stay at home mom (SAHM). When I discovered I was pregnant with our 1st child I was working full-time as a part-time and fill in Speech Pathologist. Confusing, right? Basically, I worked 2 days a week for one company and occupied the rest of my days covering for sick leave, vacations, maternity, etc. for another company. My health insurance was covered by my husband’s job so I was free to make my own schedule and the pay was excellent. It was...

Tweet For me, baby wearing is the equivalent of carrying my child. Secondary to my disability, I am unable to carry my kids “the old fashioned way” for any length of time simply because I need my only functional arm and hand for things like opening doors, getting a drink, picking a wedgie, wiping noses, and well, you get the point. Strength, balance, and endurance are also issues since I am only able to carry my kids on my left hip. I’ve tried many different carriers with my kiddos over the...

Tweet I know I’ve mentioned this product before, but there are just so many reasons to love Essante Sanitizer. As you guys know, I love playing around with cloth diapers and the endless combinations one can create with the right pieces. So yesterday, I put my son in a pad and cover in an attempt to gain more confidence in my ability to position everything correctly on my fidgety baby. I must have done something right, because the diaper held through a 3+ hour nap with no leaks! So anywho,...

Tweet I have wanted to try cloth diapering since our 1st child was born, but I always feared investing in a product that might turn out not accessible for my limited mobility. As a southpaw, with no functional use of my right hand or arm, I’ll admit I use my teeth for a lot of things. However, I was NOT willing to use this...
