Jersey Mike’s Cares!

It’s taken me over a week now to clear my brain and feel like I might be able to attempt the words needed to tell this story.  I have never in my life been so completely floored and blown away by the generosity of others, and believe me that’s a hard feat – we are absolutely surrounded […]


Harry has always been a good sleeper.  It was a little dicey in the beginning (which I would assume in the case with most newborns), and I vividly remember a period of time where he would nap nowhere else but on me, but for the most part it’s been cake.  Currently he is a four-year-old […]

Another Spill

Last year we replaced our very old carpet in the bedrooms of our home.  We went middle of the road – nothing too expensive, nothing too cheap – but I like what we chose.  About a month ago, I was putting away my flimsy box that held all of my nail polish bottles away, when the […]

Parenting is Special

Parenting is tough, no matter what your situation, and I give all the parents out there some major credit.  This job is challenging, to say the least!  But to my homies, my special needs parents, I’ll give you a little something extra – you guys rock.  This is a crazy club to be a part […]
