Natural Care For The Family

As a single mom, I am always on a budget. However, when it comes to beauty, I like to be picky with what I use!  A few months ago, I had to purchase a list of basic beauty essentials to send to school for my son, such as a comb/brush, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, etc.  They were going to work with the students on how to use these items, basic needs, and how to care for themselves! At the time, I needed to buy the items quickly, so I didn’t choose natural items!  After buying everything on the list, I realized, I should choose natural beauty for the family!

Autism: What I Wish I Knew Then

Autism What I Wish I Knew Then
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Autism. It’s just a word. A diagnosis. But i look back today and remember the fear this embarked in me when I first heard the word Autism in relation to my child. I have no idea why except the fact that the potential diagnosis of Autism wasn’t something I expected to hear. I didn’t expect to hear Autism when I took my son for his 15 month wellness visit and I mentioned a lack of words. He didn’t talk much at all then. A few babbles and that was it. Before that moment, I don’t even recall knowing anything about Autism. Just that in my eyes it meant there was something “wrong” with my child. A term I had heard in passing but dismissed as something that doesn’t happen to people like me. I also didn’t know then, that Autism is a word not the end of the world.
