A big HI to all the new followers!!! You’ll love #flickfriday where she dances every week when her amazing dance skills. Thank you to all who subscribed to the YouTube channel. Link in the bio! This is my passion to help, to advocate, to show that our lives aren’t so different, and to show even more of Flick! 😂 I posted her new video about getting new SMO’s tonight! Today I cried at OT which is incredibly embarrassing , that hasn’t been in a while, but Flick is just having a hard time readjusting to the busy schedule of four private therapies and school. I work so hard to find the balance between letting her be a kid and giving her opportunity to succeed with the extra help in therapies. I doubt myself often, I’m scared that either decision I make is going to effect her negatively. So in trying to convey this to the OT, I couldn’t stop from crying. Being a parent is scary, disability or not. This week I’ve found she’s wanted to stay home more often and gets really angry when I say it’s time to leave. She just wants to cuddle on the couch with me and watch Elmo. You know what? I want to do that as well, I don’t want to waste a minute of her being this amazing little toddler by running her everywhere, but I want to give her opportunity. The OT suggested every other week, saying I work with her at home so she won’t be missing out. She has school OT as well. I hope that was the right decision. I hope with all my heart that I won’t look back and regret it. I think she needs it and I’m following my heart.

Weekends done right 😊👌🏼
I love spending time as a family, but I also can’t wait for this afternoon because I’m surprising Ryan with a well overdue surprise date!
We’ve both been feeling so emotionally drained from a rough week with little Willow, so I can’t wait to just spend some one on one time with him ♥️
Can you guess where I’m taking him for our date? 😊
Yeah, our Saturday looks like this!
All cheesy, trying to smile!😉
We are up since 7 am! (which is our every #weekendstory ). On regular days A&A struggle to wake up at 8. 30 also but weekend mornings begin at 7 with no afternoon naps.
And today was the heights! They were in complete revenge mode! They opened the doors and windows, switched on the lights, pulled our sheets and started saying in the same tone (as we say everyday) - 'Goodmorning Mummy and Papa! It's time to wake up! Rise & Shine'! 🙈
It was almost like they were saying - 'Ab Pata laga aapko kaisa lagta hai' 😂😂 and we were like 🤦♀️🤦♀️. As I was sharing this with @withlovezuzu, she had put it aptly- 'life comes to a full circle' 😜😂.
Happy Birthday Violet Raine! My dear baby is finally 2!
You came into my life when I thought there was nothing great about me, when I thought there wasn't worth in me. You taught me to love a part of me and that part was YOU. I am not the best at expressing my emotions and at times I do get scared. I want you to know I love you even in my darkest hours. You are my inspiration and my motivation. Yes, it does get tough sometimes and there are moments where I sit and cry because I'm afraid I'm a terrible mom. Yes I am vulnerable. But you, you are my light, my purpose, and my drive. No matter where you go in life, I will always be besides you. You are my daughter and my friend. I do hope in the future you will confide in me and count on me. Violet Raine you color my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. Happy Birthday baby girl.
Yes she is wearing the same dress she did for her first birthday.
| Hello Weekend | Someone decided to scoot into Saturday VERY early this morning (although 5am is not considered the morning in my book)... and there my husband thought he needed to set his alarm 🤣 Apparently the weekend is just too exciting and must begin at the crack of dawn 😳
We are transitioning to one nap so this morning could prove interesting 🙈 We've played games, ridden around the house in his trolley, had breakfast and it's only 8am... Next we'll be grocery shopping (shopping trolleys are great entertainment) and then meeting friends for a playdate at one of my favourite spots 😊
What time do your babies have you up? What are you getting up to on this beautiful day? 🌸
