Being a new parent is hard, being a parent to a new baby when you have three others is really hard and exhausting. With that being said, adding a baby that has special needs brings a whole new challenge. I’m constantly looking for things to help improve our daily life and make things easier.
Since our recent move, I’ve been doing my best to rebuild our aromatherapy supplies. I like to keep an oil diffuser in each room we spend time in. Living healthy with aromatherapy is possible! I keep one going just to keep our air clean and fresh. I also like to use essential oils to keep my son from getting sick or reduce his symptoms. He does not take medicine, so I rely on aromatherapy.
What makes aromatherapy so amazing is that it is natural, effective, and so easy to use.
As a mom, it is important to keep my son healthy so he can attend school. In years past, he has missed so much school from getting sick! I also do my best to stay healthy. If I am sick, I am unable to care for my son. With his Autism, I choose aromatherapy. How are you staying healthy?
I prefer using natural ways to staying healthy in our home. Have you ever tried using an oil diffuser?
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.
Remember when socks used to be the present you dreaded getting a kid? Nowadays, socks come in so many cool and unique designs, it’s become a gift that everyone enjoys getting!
John’s Crazy Socks is now one of my favorite places to find fun and unique socks. They have plenty of awesome styles and colors that are great for yourself or as an amusing gift for a friend or family member.
When it comes to fashion and style, we opt for what is practical and affordable. I tend to shop at the same few stores for clothing. Even for our son, since he is growing, I aim to buy his clothes at only a few stores.

Do you shop online? We have a child with special needs and shopping can be a challenge. One of the biggest reasons I love shopping online is that it saves me time and money! So, how do I save money by shopping online? In addition to shopping for sales and using coupon codes and discounts, I have another secret! I shop online and earn cash back at my favorite retailers!
We were offered the opportunity to visit SeaWorld Orlando. We’ve been to Walt Disney World a handful of times, so visiting SeaWorld would be a new experience for our family. My husband and I have both been to SeaWorld parks when we were kids. My experience was so long ago that I really don’t remember, I do recall it was the SeaWorld San Diego park! My husband vaguely remembers visiting SeaWorld Orlando when he was in school.
We just got back from a week long vacation to Walt Disney World. We also spent a day at SeaWorld. This was a much needed vacation as it had been 3 years and 11 months since our last visit to Disney World. During that time, we were always dreaming of a trip to Disney World but we were busy with work, school and life changes. I was working full time, changed jobs and then went back to being a full time stay at home mom and blogger. My husband went to work full time and also going to college. Our schedules were all over the place. So, when the opportunity presented itself, we decided to take a relaxing and fun week off!

When our son was diagnosed with Autism, I was ready to embrace the challenge.
