Don’t Let Go

Most of 2020, Aiden stayed in his underwear in the house. He would be very quick to get completely and appropriately dressed at the hint of going outside. But as soon as he comes home and barely a few steps from the door, he starts leaving a trail of clothes. Shoes, socks, shirts, shorts/pants. Thank... Continue Reading →

Safety Measures

I remember when we first had Aiden, I constantly felt the need to protect him from every little danger. I often times struggled to feel at ease. I was always afraid that he would get hurt. When he was sound asleep, even in my arms, I would check if he was still breathing. I think... Continue Reading →

How to Make Edible Marshmallow Slime

Oliver will be the first to tell you how much he LOVES messy activities. Aiden on the other hand, likes mess as much as his brother but he prefers messes that don't involve anything sticky.

At What Cost?

In business, people always talk about the "cost of doing business". The value associated to the cost of doing business is mostly regarded as necessary.

Oliver: "Mommy, can I have permission to watch FGTeeV?"Me: "Are you done with school?"Oliver: "Yes, I am!"Me: "Ok, so tell me... Continue Reading →

I Thought I Was Decided

I really thought I was decided. And yet, here I am agonizing again. What do I do? Which way do I go? Parenting is truly one of the hardest jobs in the world. Being in charge of another person's life because they are too young or they may not have the ability to do so... Continue Reading →

Almost Decided

In the last couple of weeks, I have been vacillating on whether or not to push forward with getting Aiden into ABA, Speech, and Occupational therapies. Following his formal diagnosis late October 2020, I had been looking forward to getting him these services. The thought of my child being reintroduced to these interventions after many...

Are there really things to be thankful for? YES! Absolutely. Especially during hard times, our resilience to overcome obstacles must be partnered with the... Continue Reading →

Aiden’s Song

After Aiden's usual afternoon bike time outside, Hubby came in and excitedly called me. He said that he wasn't sure at first but Aiden did it a second time. He sang a song that went something like, "Walking down the street, down the street..." Hubby was ecstatic! Of course, I wouldn't dare let myself miss... Continue Reading →
