When Did Being A Man Mean You Should Stop Being Human?

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Recently, a post came up in a local mom group on Facebook, specifically talking about husbands being babysitters/nannys to other children. The question posed was: Would you let another husband watch your children?

A few months ago, a rising concern for safety happened to enter into my world. I've got two young girls and we tend to be home alone quite often (when we're actually home). My oldest daughter and I also worry about our animals, since we are away from the home so frequently on trips. So, my husband and I decided we needed to add some outdoor and indoor surveillance to our home.

Gluten-Free At Walt Disney World: Garden Grill

Monday, April 2, 2018

A more recent change in my life has been cutting out gluten. As difficult as that has been (since I have a genuine love affair with bread), it was more of a daunting task to take on at theme parks. Specifically, Walt Disney World, as I am there so frequently. Or, at least, I thought it was going to be daunting. Little did I know, they have gluten-free options in so many places!

Now, given all of the sensory aversions my kids have with food, it can be kind of hard to find a good restaurant for us to dine at. However, a couple weeks ago, I decided that my family and I should have a splurge kinda morning and go eat somewhere in the parks! We decided on the Garden Grill Restaurant inside Epcot's "The Land" area. I checked their breakfast menu and it looked like it could be a decent option for us.

Disney With Special Needs - Autoimmune Disorders

Saturday, March 24, 2018

I have been going to Walt Disney World my entire life. More so, though, in the past 5 years. In these past few years, I have become pretty well-acquainted with navigating special needs through Disney. I thought I had it down pretty well. That is, until my second child came around. Little did I know, I would be taking on some extra needs with this one!

It's not something I've discussed on here before, or even much on social media, but my daughter has some form of autoimmune deficiency/disorder. We are still working on testing and getting answers, but this is what I know.... For a breastfed toddler who eats pretty well, doesn't go to daycare, and has never received any form of medication that could possibly tear down her immune system, she gets sick a lot.

I mean a lot.

In fact, in a span of 14 weeks time she had gotten sick 7 separate times. SEVEN!! She was sick literally every other week. It was horrible. I, myself, have autoimmune issues and catch things easily..but this is intense.
