There comes a time in every parent’s life where they are consumed with taking care of their kids and surviving. I’m in that season right now. So many of you have asked where podcasts are, where an article they thought would be published is, and if a blonde moment is going to be published. The answer is I’m not sure when. So what’s the “why” behind it all?
Recently my son, Fox, has been diagnosed with Autism. This came as a surprise to me, his teachers, and our family. It is the final fork in the two-year journey Fox, and I have been on in trying to uncover his specific special needs. Now we’re there, and it requires more of my time, energy, and brain power. There are so many things I have to get in order, from clinic visits, to state benefits interviews, to new therapies, to my business itself.
In this blog post, I've decided to share how it's going to affect everything and how it has been affecting everything thus far. https://theblondespot.me/blog/autismdiagnosis/
My cuties last Easter
Every year their Nonni sends them the cutest little matching outfits and we bribe them with treats from their Easter baskets to get a really great picture to frame until the year!
This year we’ll be adding Gracie to picture and have to figure out how to get them all to look at the camera (or in that general direction) all at the same time!!!! LOL
Let me know if you guys would been interested in a video on how we get pictures like this of our kids.
It takes some effort but it’s so worth it!!!
Friends for more than ten years. We’ve graduated together, partied together, studied together, and have remained friends through and through. Friendship changes over the years so while we may not see one another every day like we used to when we were teenagers, our bond is just as strong. I’m so excited we could all come together to celebrate Justin and Shannon finally tying the knot! Cheers to another ten years.
I woke up to no voice this morning. I feel like when Fox is sick it takes some time to pass onto me but when it does it hits me ten times harder. I do have to say though, waking up to a toddler arm resting on top of my neck (while cute) didn’t help my throat feel better.
