A Collection of Resources for SPD (and more)

Many of these websites and articles go beyond Sensory Processing Disorder. The world of special needs is not cut and dry. In fact, SPD has come under scrutiny in the medical world just as ADHD and autism have in the past. I just focus on the actual struggles attributed to SPD because it’s my own […]

Perspective: Just Another Tuesday as a SAHM

I actually wrote this late at night last week. I tend to sit on the late-night posts because sometimes I know I may regret them in the morning. After 7 days I came back to re-read this one and I think it’s only fair that I get over it and post it on the World […]

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas week. We had a good time together. No traveling or big get togethers for us. Just low-key family time. I’m surprised how much I like it this way because growing up we always had something fun planned or relatives to go visit. Our biggest outings […]


Easy Buttered Rum Pudding Pie

I had a craving for butterscotch and rum and used what I had! I used to choose the butterscotch cone over the chocolate at Dairy Queen when I was a kid.  I like butterscotch and butterbeers (FYI, Starbucks versions) and I won’t lie – I thoroughly enjoy some good spiced rum too. I know it’s […]
