RAD Isn’t Rad

RAD Isn’t Rad

A few weeks ago I started our "Beyond The Highlight Reel" series. I started off with a basic overview of some terms, therapies, and diagnosis I would be discussing in later blog posts....One of those terms is RAD. RAD or Reactive Attachment Disorder, was one of the first diagnosis we got for Q. With a [...]

The Rainbow After The Storm

The Rainbow After The Storm

A few weeks ago I mentioned  QMonster  being in the hospital. Not going to lie, it was rough...flat out rough...and honestly, I am still feeling the effects of the stay as are Q and JHub. However, I am not going to be sad, negative, or a Debbie Downer today...nope! Today is a great day for a [...]

Here Goes Nothing….

Here Goes Nothing….

Alright...here goes nothing...its now or never for me. I have had an internal struggle with whether or not I should share this. One side of me thinks I should keep this to myself, avoid the questions, avoid the stares, avoid giving people something to talk about, avoid the shame & embarrassment. The other side of [...]

4 Years Ago

4 Years Ago

JHub, 4 years ago our friends and family filled that small winery to watch us say our vows, to celebrate our happiness, to wish us well in our future life, to show their love for us, and to drink the free wine. 4 years ago we were kids full of hope, love, and optimism. 4 [...]

I spend hours on the internet searching through blog posts, Facebook support [...]

3 Years Later

9/3/14--The day the stars aligned and prayers were answered. The day I finally experienced love at first sight. The day that would forever change the trajectory of my life. The day that was, and still is, so full of emotion. The day that I'll never forget. The day I became a mom. The day I [...]

Mother’s Day –Flashback

Mother’s Day –Flashback

When J and I first got married, I started a blog called SportsAndStationery...It was a fun little blog but it was cheap... It served its purpose until I moved over here to HMMC! In honor of Mother's Day, I thought I would share my first Mother's Day post originally posted on our S&S blog. My [...]

The “Weird Mom”

The “Weird Mom”

I often tell people that I wanted to be the kind of mom that wouldn't freak out of if my kiddo ate a Doritos off the floor or had M&Ms for breakfast. Little Debbie cakes, chips, & candy would be staples in my pantry. Juice boxes would have an entire shelf dedicated to them in [...]
