Prepared Parent For The School Year

Beauty Brite Disclosure
When we were pregnant with our son many years ago, we were buying everything baby! We had no idea what we needed but it seemed like we were both thinking of different needs. He was thinking about the tools needed to care for our son, while I was thinking about clothing, diapers, baby bathing products, and even other household needs.

Easy Way To Help Individuals With Disabilities Save Money

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ABLEnow.

When my son was diagnosed with Autism, it wasn’t as quite a shock.

You see, we had some inkling. We also had to wait 3 months to see the doctor to finally diagnose him. The doctor’s office had us fill out several pages about our son. The forms also had a section for his teacher to fill out as well. For our appointment, the doctor really didn’t observe him, she went based solely on the forms we filled out to diagnose him.

As a parent to a child with autism, I quickly embraced our new normal.

There is an easy way to help individuals with disabilities save money!

Having a sick little one is something that no parent wants to go through. But kids can be tiny little germ machines. My oldest started Kindergarten this year and within the first week had a nasty cold that she ended up sharing with the rest of her siblings. Why is it they always want to share their germs? As a parent I’m always looking for things that make our life a little easier when it comes to the kiddos feeling yucky.

I have three (soon to be four) kids and it seems like someone is always feeling sick or under the weather. Allergies are an issue in our house, as well, and always a concern when our daughter has to be cared for by others. So I thought I might share a few products that are helping us to make our children’s sick days a little easier to bear as well as give me a little peace of mind when my oldest is at school.

Your words have an impact

Your words have an impact

Earlier this week, I read a news article about an employee who lost her job due to what she posted on social media. Unfortunately, stories like this are not uncommon our digital age. Young adults who have grown up using social media need basic life lessons on what to post and what not to post and how it can impact them. Be careful what you say and how you say it as your words have an impact.
