Story time with the big sister! || Ce livre a vraiment une très bonne morale, nous avons pu discuter sur l’importance de focuser sur le positif dans nos vie au lieu de regarder que le négatif. Je le recommande! Bonne lecture! 💫
Le titre du livre: le manchot marabout.
Review!! NEW HEADPHONES!! .
I think we finally hit the jackpot with his new headphones!! These are super light and they don't squish his head like the others. .
We opted for wireless headphones this time instead of just noise canceling ones because they seem to help him want to wear them more. .
Riwbox WT-7S Bluetooth Headphones, LED Light Up Wireless Foldable Stereo Headset with Microphone and Volume Control for PC/ iPhone/ TV/ iPad (Blue)
PURCHASED ON AMAZON for only $27.98 .
We have zero cons for these as of now. We've been using them for about a week and love them. .
So many Pros!!!!
•Lightweight •soft cushioned ear muffs •controls on the side make it easy to manage (fast forward, rewind, play, pause and stop) perfect for movies and music •wireless with a long battery life and pairs very easily to most devices with voice prompting (tells you when they are on, connected and paired) •no cords to handle, tangle or chew •bonus is they can be wired if need be and the wire has a microphone attached to answer phone calls (for those who may use these with the phones) •good range (we had these on Joshua as he was outside and his tablet was in the house and no problems hearing his music •easy to pack away as they fold for quick storage •adjustable so they will grow with him. •they cone with a USB Charge cable •lights on the side blink and dance to the beats and sound letting you know they are working and looks super cute.
Seasonal Support 🌸🌳🐝👀🌷 The sneezes, the itchy & watery eyes, the runny noses and congestion. We're already swinging into Spring in SC and have been using this trio to help relieve symptoms so we can enjoy our time outdoors!
Lemon 🍋 is a phenominal cleanser.
Lavender 🌱 is a natural antihistamine, and decreases inflammatory response.
Peppermint 🌿 supports open airways.
Diffuse: four drops of each
Roller blend (10ml): 10 drops each, fill with FCO, apply to feet, spine, pulse points, behind ears, neck or on chest.
Internally: 2-3 drops each in a veggie cap
dōTERRA made it simple also by creating TriEase Softgels which contain equal parts of lemon, lavender and peppermint to take internally for seasonal support.
Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Need a little support? New to essential oils? Send me a message; I'd love to send you a sample! 🌱💌
Watch what you say …I just might do it! .
Have you ever met someone who took everything you said literally? That's how some people with ASD are. THAT'S HOW JOSHUA IS!! .
He has a Speech/Language disorder disorder and doesn't always understand what's being said to him. Sometimes it ends pretty comically. .
Here's some examples: .
Once i told his sister to "get on the ball and get her school work done".…Joshua got upset because she wasn't on his big exercise ball. .
I also say I have to "bite my tongue" A LOT ……to which Joshua always asks to see my tongue or if it is bleeding or he gets upset thinking I hurt myself cause I bit my tongue. .
We used to have a "Take 5/take a breather"spot (a square on the floor away from everything made of blue painters tape for easier removal) ……when I would say "get in the blue square for a take 5" …it took him a while to realize his entire body didn't have to be inside the square. So if his toes went over the tape he would flip out. .
Also, if you say you are going to do something, bring something or take him somewhere …you'd dang sure better live up to it because he will remember it and let you know every time he sees you.
We didn’t catch the leprechaun.... surprise surprise! But he left some gold coins for us🍀
3 sick kids , something viral, ear infections, double teething molar mess and up ALL night make for us having to miss Farm Camp and cancel the days plans 😢 Boo
Happy St. Patrick’s Day 🍀💕
A huge THANK YOU to @mygymchallengedamerica and @mygymlaverne for blessing Joshua with his hammock pod swing and stand. It was delivered today and he has been so excited to help daddy put it together and finally get inside. We have since added a few pillows for support because he's a tiny little peanut. But he absolutely loves it!! .

Joshua sang happy birthday to his sister literally every 30 min or so yesterday. Each time he was super excited as if it was the first time He sang it for her. He also thought it was his birthday too. Something he didn't understand. We just kept telling him that it was Sissy's birthday and his would come again soon. (it never clicked for him tho) it's like when it snowed last week. The trees looked beautiful covered in snow… but to Joshua, it signaled Christmas and he insisted that Santa was going to bring him a new train. .
Sometimes it can be difficult for those with ASD to understand time, to understand when things are supposed happen. Things as simple as "later, tomorrow, or even a certain day…Friday" none of that makes any sense for Joshua. He literally lives in the moment. Which isn't always manageable because let's face it. 90% of life is about waiting. .
OT and ABA work with him on this. And while some days he may understand a little most days he does not.

A couple of days ago we spend some time in Johannesburg and visited an old time favorite. Gold Reef City is an amusement park in South Africa. Located on an old gold mine which closed in 1971, the park is themed around the gold rush that started in 1886 on the Witwatersrand. We took a guided tour 100m underground and learned all about gold mining. The amusement park was great fun too and the kiddos especially loved the water rides!
It’s “World Sleep Day”, and let me tell you, I woke up this morning from a wonderful night’s rest!
My family & I use a rotation of essential oils each evening as part of our bedtime routines.
Diffusing a sweet aroma is soooo calming that we can wind down & fall asleep with ease.
There are many essential oils to choose from, but our family favorites include Lavender, Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Cedarwood, & SleepyIze(a blend with Valerian essential oil).
How about you? What are your go-to oils to encourage rest & relaxation in your home?
A MUST READ IF YOU HAVE AN AUTISM SIBLING!!
REPOSTED!!! from @my_life_as_an_autismsibling using @RepostRegramApp - .
Thank you for all your wonderful birthday wishes I really appreciate them. But this post is about how I think every special needs sibling needs to read Wonder. I was recently asked to give some advice for another autism sibling. I suggested Wonder. The book is about a boy with a facial deformitiy and how his first year of middle school is his first time ever going to school other than at home (homeschooled). But another major part of the book is about Via his older sister. Her parents are always so focused on her brother (because of his disability) that she always does everything by herself. She says that her family is the universe Auggie (wonder) is the sun and her dad, mom, and her are the planets that orbit around him. I related to Via so much in my own way that I cried at some spots. This is a book definitely recommended by a special needs sibling 💖💖💖"
Date night 💖
We don't go out every week, just once a month for sure.
But for me evenings after kids are in bed I think of as date night every night!
But this one night a month we go out away from the crazy fun of home and remember why we are together after all these years. ❤️

THE DAY AND THE #CREEKLIFE OF OUR HOMESCHOOLING FAMILY:
My little navigator! She most often doesn't look behind her but ahead. Hair a mess and a style all her own; she is my free spirit. She knows where she is going and walks in confidence. (I want to be just like her)
This new (homeschool) life of ours has proven to be adventurous at times. Learning doesn't always happen through books but in conversations; sometimes in the most unexpected places such as pulling vines in the back yard. We are so blessed to have family who have immersed themselves in their love of history, gardening, and other amazing life experiences. THIS is what we call school! It's not always glamorous or easy but IT'S SO WORTH IT! .
