I'm a mother of three beautiful boys, from 4 months to almost 6 years old. My two oldest have Sensory Processing Disorder. My hobbies include, but are not limited to: writing, skating, martial arts, making jewelry (I'm building my website now) cooking, reading and watching comedy. This is my very first blog. I was a bit intimidated at first, but am now learning the in's and out's of the blogging community. It's very rewarding and I'm excited to learn more. I welcome any tips and critique. I can't wait to meet some fellow blogging mommies.
I am a stay home mom working hard to get my sparkle back. I have two daughters, a husband and a crazy dog.
Stella, age 5, is my worrier. She is sensitive, stubborn, creative and knows how to push my buttons.
Emmy, age 3, is my funny little spark plug. She has GI issues, food allergies/intolerances , sensory processing disorder and behavioral issues.
My husband is my best friend. That said, he isn't perfect and we struggle to make sense of our crazy life.
My life has been a roller coaster. Through it all, I always have a smile on face and am quick to laugh at all the craziness. Inside I struggle as I have dealt with anxiety and depression since I was a young child.
Join me in the journey that is our crazy life! Laugh with me, cry with me, drink wine with me as I work to discover who I am and get my sparkle back.
I look forward to reading your feedback!

Before all else, I am a mommy. My two children fuel my life, and give me so much happiness, and hope for the world around me. My son was diagnosed at the age of 2 with Severe Autistic Disorder (classic autism - nonverbal). He is now 6 and brings along all the typical atttitudal issues of a 6 year old - but he has also has his unique quirks and interests. Being the mom of a special needs child has opened my eyes to a new world. I'm really hoping that through this blog I can enlighten and inspire my family/friends/and other readers to The World of Autism (a planet that I must become acclimated to daily - because with each day, brings new challenges/achievements).
And Olin has the best sister in the world: Ruby! My daughter Ruby amazes me daily her level of compassion, empathy, and kindness. She's neurotypical, and your every-day-diva!!!!! She's artistic, funny, spunky, and intelligent. I can't wait to see the woman she is growing into, because my little lady is going to do big things in this world!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask... otherwise, I hope to keep you interested/entertained enough to visit my blog regularly!
I'm 25. I have one child named Carter. He Is 4 almost 5. I am a single mom with no help. I am struggling with His recent dx with sensory integration disorder and an unknown nervous system issue and he was also dx with ODD. I feel like I'm failing as a parent and a person. I don't know how to help my child!
I am a SAHM to two beautiful, smart, spirited children, one of whom happens to have Sensory Processing Disorder.
I am a mom of two kids with ASD/SPD, living in a small town in Eastern Washington where services and supports are far and few between. Every day is a new challenge and every smile gives me a renewed sense of purpose. Having been a child on the high-functioning end of the spectrum myself, I am dedicated to providing my kids with the tools to not only cope but live productive, happy and fulfilling lives.

I'm a stay at home mom and a military wife. Our 3 yr old son has autism and we're all trying our best to figure one another out ...little by little, day by day
My name is Melissa and I am a mother of two. My son Mateo was diagnosed with Autism at 2 1/2 and is now 5. My daughter is 7 and is neuro-typical. Mateo also has SPD and we have found Occupational Tools to be an excellent way to help Mateo focus and very calming for him.
Hello, I am a mother of 4 children, whom 2 are Special Needs. My oldest son is Dakota (5) and he has Autism. He also has ADHD, Sensory Issues, Deep Compression Disorder, And Aspergers Syndrome. My youngest son (4) has not been diagnosed yet, although he is started to show the emotional signs and sensory issues as my 5 yr old. his name is Ethan. I am here to support and learn from other mothers. I also, have not been diagnosed, but have a lot of the same issues that my son's have. My mother always told me I was just stubborn. I can recall many time I wondered off to friends houses and even ran away, for no reason at all. I did not have an easy childhood. Maybe it is from that, that i am this way, who knows... but I understand them like no other can. I do have a hard time some days, but for the most part.... we are all kids of the house!!!
I drive a 2002 Honda Odyssey with McDonalds' french fries ground into the seats and the fragrant aroma of spoiled chocolate soy milk in the carpet.
Our family is walking chaos... with three boys 5, 3, and 2, we are never far from disaster striking which usually manifests in forms like pooping from one end of the kitchen to the other or attempted shankings with broken toys.
The last 2 years have been the most challenging of my life. We have faced disaster in almost every aspect, from a failing consulting business (note to self, don't quite job and start new business in a new field with no experience in a down economy) to our older two sons being diagnosed with autism.
Autism is lonely and so many days we just can't even leave the house, so I am excited to help build a community of love and support with other moms. Being a mom is hard... with or without special needs kids! It's time for us to join together... stop judging each other, stop pretending we have it all together and just be free to be who God made us to be.
Karen Mayes lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband and two energetic boys. She worked in the field of finance and data research but in 2010 her life abruptly changed courses. After her oldest son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, Karen turned to writing as an emotional outlet and to educate others on the disorder through her son’s and family’s experiences.
I am a stay-at-home mom. Our oldest son is 10 and has SPD. Our daughter is 7 and is neurotypical. Our youngest son is 5 and has SPD, Anxiety Disorder, and is on the spectrum. We are going through the diagnostic process with him right now. I am currently pursuing a degree in Exceptional Education. Life is never dull....but thankfully I have a great sense of humor!
I am a wife and mother to three charming little guys. Bobby is an inquisitive boy with a grin that lights up a room. Andy is a hard-working creative genius hard at work on his next artistic or writing masterpiece. And Logan? Is quite the charmer and has a giggle that is infectious.
Together, the Moody guys are also all diagnosed with a rare disorder, called Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome, autism, and epilepsy. As amazing and wonderful as my guys are, their diagnoses make our family one crazy place to call home.
Me? I'm Kat, mom to the gang and a writer. You can find me at my blog and other fun places online. When it comes to being a mom to kids with many diagnoses, I earned my experts' status the hard way, one crisis at a time. I hope you'll enjoy joining me for this journey called special needs parenting.
