Stitch Fix Me

As many of you know, I had my first experience with Trunk Club a couple weeks back. It was pretty fun, but probably not for me as the prices are a bit too high, unless of course you don’t mind spending $200 on a pair of jeans.

Because I’m not made of money and as my dad always told me money doesn’t grow on trees, I decided to try something I could control the prices of, which led me to Stitch Fix. I filled out the fun questionnaire in full detail including my preferences for how I like my tops to fit, sizes of every garment they could think of (again the bra sizes only go up to 40DDD – not for those of us who have actually had a proper bra fitting and know that there aren’t many women who actually wear a 40DDD), what my life looks like at work and outside of work, what my family is like, the fun things I like to do, and whether or not I’m looking for night out looks, casual, work wear, or special occasions.

Something Sweet Amidst the Scary

Hello, Mamas, I hope that summer finds you enjoying lazy days with sandy toes.  First, I should assure you that neither Brandy nor I has been abducted by aliens nor fallen into a deep hole from which we cannot escape.  We’ve just been busily rushing around like modified chickens with our little heads cut off.  I have been struggling over a post for a while and just can’t quite get all that I need it to say into it without tipping over into harpyville. Thus, I have temporarily tossed that post aside to write about something completely different.  On “Tell Us Tuesday,” I want to share what pretty much occupies my every waking thought right now and I am begging for any hints those of you who deal with these issues can give me.

It’s Okay, Mommy Brought the Magic

As most of you know by now, I have 4 kids and three of them have special needs.  We see LOTS of doctors in several different locations.  We’ve been seeing lots of doctors for lots of years.  Add to this that my children have lots of anxiety and lots of sensory issues and, as you might guess, I’ve endured lots of headaches from watching my babies suffer lots of meltdowns.  Luckily, through lots and lots of trial and error, I have found some things that really help all of my children get through doctors appointments with far less stress (a lot.)   Continue reading

The Little Product That Changed My Life

I have a child that doesn’t sleep.  I mean seriously, he doesn’t sleep well at all!!! Newborn, colicky infants have nothing on my sweet boy.  His sleep disturbance is part of his disability.  His body doesn’t know how to wind down and if he sleeps even a few minutes and wakes up, his brain tells him he’s slept already and it’s time to get up.   Yes, he takes medication to help because, otherwise, he’d be suffering physical effects from exhaustion, however, we still needed help.  You see, when he wakes up at night, he is prone to getting up and wreaking havoc.

Products I love: Non-battery powered toys

I just love Toys R Us.  Not just because I’m literally a kid at heart and I love being surrounded by all of those toys; but mostly because they have a special catalog for our kids.  Their catalog is called the Toys R Us Differently Abled Guide, and if you haven’t heard of it, it’s a must-read for Christmas shopping ideas for your kiddos.  Continue reading
