About Me

I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire! Let's talk and learn how a blog can expand your business.

Yesterday was back to school, and back to reality. This is our first week with the extracurricular activities and, while it is a shortened week, it's going to be busy. I love that Robby has so many unique interests, but trying to manage his schedule takes a lot of careful planning.  In a few weeks we will ease into the new routines, but until I get the timing down it will be stressful.  Thankfully Timmy is a great little traveler who is happy to play just about anywhere. 

In between driving Robby to guitar and the gym, Timmy and I are going to try to tour another Pre-K program. Because of his autoimmune issues, it is imperative that we find a setting where he will not only thrive academically and socially, but where he will be medically safe. I know we will find the perfect place for him and I will feel considerably less anxious when we do.  

Because of Back-to-School Night, Scott won't be home until nearly 9. It will be an extremely long day for him, and I know that he will be dragging for the next few days as a result. I remember dreading Back-to-School week when I was a teacher, so I try to keep family demands to a minimum for him. It's a long day for Scott, but it will also be a long day for me.
