The holiday season can be a bit hectic for all of us. For those of us with children who may have special needs, it can be a bit more hectic trying to make sure our little ones are happy during this time as well.
Gift buying for a child with special needs can be a bit challenging. The one thing you want to remember to keep in mind is to shop for the child’s abilities versus the child’s chronological age.
Christmas is hands down my favorite holiday. I just love the warmth it brings to my home and the kind spirit it brings in on everyone. Now that my son is older and my youngest is growing up, I decided to follow one of the traditions my mother used to do with me and my sister and binge watch all the Christmas movies. It creates memories and keeps the little ones busy during this long winter break from school. So this is a #MomWin!
Some people believe that a baby so small shouldn’t receive gifts on christmas, let alone stocking stuffers. Especially if they are a fresh newborn baby.

Being a new mom is already stressful enough, especially if you are new to motherhood entirely. One thing that grinds my gears that I witness more than I would like is new mothers complaining about boundary stepping from extended family.

As your little one grows we tend to buy a million gadgets and accessories to fit their needs. One thing we know our little ones will need for quite some time is a reliable car seat.
