School's Out - Summer Success autism parent

Schools are closed and you might be going “now what?!” Here come the re-routes (aka routine changes) for the summer. Summertime should be a fantastic time for most families. Well, it’s different for us Autism parents. We actually go into panic mode. WHY? I heard the frustration from one of my Autism moms that I coach as an Autism Communication Expert, “he spent the last 10 months learning a (structured) routine, that he finally got used to, then… school closes…

[Video] New Wonder Woman Ride at Six Flags America #MyWonderWoman

How to Make Time for Workouts Without Disrupting the Family Schedule

time for workouts and family

Knowing that working out is great self-care doesn’t make extra time to do it magically appear. Self-care often competes with getting the kids off to school, meeting work deadlines, and making time for friends. And, if you are like many other busy moms, those priorities often collide. When they do, self-care is usually the first thing to slide off the schedule. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can make time for regular workouts without disrupting the family…

Mom – If Your Child Loves Baking They’ll Love This

Kid's Baking Championship

Ariana Grande concert manchester

As news broke out about the bombing in Manchester after Ariana Grande’s concert I was so saddened and, let’s be honest, pissed off that someone can be so cruel to target KIDS who just wanted to have a good time watching their favorite singer perform. My thoughts brought me back to my first concert at the age of 10. The Concert of a Lifetime The day was July 18, 1992. The parent who agreed to take me was my dad. And…

Making Mother’s Day for Single Moms Special

Mother's Day for single moms

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, how are you planning on spending your special day? Being surprised with a special gift or dinner wouldn’t be too shabby. I know our kids also like to get crafty for the day, although I find with age, the crafts become less and less, lol.

A Day in the Life of Erica Campbell – A Mom on the Move

Erica Campbell

Erica Campbell recently shared on her Instagram a snippet of her “Day in the Life” segment featured on MadameNoire.com.

It’s often very different and far removed from the stage or scene life that they are known for. It’s kind of like behind the scenes footage. And truth be told, I love…
