My boys are now 8 and 6 but boys will be boys! I get sooo grossed out when we’re in public bathrooms because they will do their thang but with their legs & pants touching the disgusting public toilets!!!! How do I avoid it? Well these nifty covers cover the entire lid to the front bottom. I rip a bit in the middle so the kids don’t get it all wet. The nice thing is each cover is folded and rolled small enough to fit in my pursues. For $5.99 you get 6 covers.
In the same predicament with your lil ones? Please click on my amazon associates link above and search for “potty covers.” You will shop as usual (confidential, no names) using my link and I can get a small % towards Andrew’s swim and clarinet classes. Thanks for supporting my blog!
Awesomeness on many levels! I’m beyond excited and relieved knowing many young kids will soon learn about autism, the Sesame Street way. Sesame Street is brilliant and so open minded for elevating autism awareness. As a parent with an autistic child, I realize I cannot change my son’s diagnosis and I certainly can’t change how society perceives him. But I can certainly do my part in spreading autism awareness, in hopes that education will promote understanding and acceptance.
One of my wishes (as stated on my blog) is for media and celebs to use their power to educate others on autism. So I’m so happy because what sesame street is starting is a huge step into mainstream! The more the educated, the more patience/understanding and the more we are set free when out in the community.
I’ve always been intrigued by the Kennedy family, America’s royal family blessed with fame yet cursed with tragedies. Surrounded by her glorious siblings was Rosemary Kennedy, who had an intellectual disability. Her sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver was the inspiring founder of Special Olympics. She had a huge heart and determination for the special needs population, which back in the 60s were shunned and mistreated. They were either institutionalized or ignored and shamed. Eunice started off inviting special needs kids to her uxurious backyard for camp. Many years later Special Olympics is an international event. I’m so inspired to encourage Andrew to shine in swimming or track and one day be a competitor in this event.
Have you mamas heard the latest and greatest on Nike’s new kicks for special needs community? It’s called the Lebron Soldier 8 Flyease high top shoes with no tie laces and a wrap around zipper. I’m SO excited because just earlier this year my son wore out his zip up boots (Children’s Place brand) which he loved. I wanted to replace them with a casual pair. I clearly remember shopping at the mall on the search. I went into one of the sports stores and asked a young sales boy if they sold no tie laces/velcro high tops. He looked at me like I was crazy, laughed and said nope. But at last they’re here! Drop date is July 16th and limited supply. Crossing my fingers I get a pair and that they’re not super expensive. I tend to go cheaper (no more than $40) for my boys’shoes since they ruin them so quickly. Check out the inspiring story behind the shoe.
Age 8 – training wheels are off! No such thing as a small thing in this family! Exciting that Andrew reached this milestone. But now he thinks he’s unstoppable. He’s biking so much faster, fell hard twice, biking off the curbs & making skid marks as he hits his breaks.
Pumping your legs on the swing takes motor planning and bilateral coordination. You don’t realize how much goes into simple things until you’re touched by autism. When your child hits a milestone, you’re overjoyed. Andrew can finally enjoy the freedom of swinging on his own, for as long as his heart desires.
