We had a dental checkup about a month ago and sure enough, Lucas had two loose teeth. It just doesn’t seem possible. The twins were ornery after speech therapy today and needed to take a nap. They were fighting that idea and sure enough, “Mommy, there’s something in my mouth.” as he pushed his tooth […]

As I dropped my kids off for their final day of school, the emotions hit me a bit. The twins began HeadStart right after turning three. We all struggled with this “new”. Nathan and Lucas would fight tooth and nail for Mommy to not leave and there were lots of tears. We had very few […]

When I found out I was pregnant with twins, my head started spinning. There are so many things to take into consideration when you are preparing for a baby; you find yourself speechless when prepping for two new little ones to join your family at the same time.

As a mom of twins, there is never a dull moment. We’ve hit road bumps and hurdles in the almost five years since Lucas and Nathan were born. In those five years, I’ve also learned that I will always be the number one advocate for my children. I’ve been proactive in ensuring the twins have […]

Potty training. We all experience it as a parent. While I’ve been at this milestone before, my challenge is totally new this time around. Why? I’m potty training twin boys! As a single mom to these two little guys, I can tell you, we are all learning when it comes to potty training and we’ve […]

This month, Nathan had his second surgery. While both were oral surgeries, this one was a bit longer and with different anesthesia, etc. After a regular dental checkup, it was discovered that both twins likely have cavities on the interior sections of their teeth;think where teeth touch teeth. A bit heartbroken, our dentist told me […]

Lucas’ new glasses came today! I was a bit worried when they told me they ordered the wrong color frames (seriously?) but he loved them! Toddler glasses can be fun! Glasses are to be worn all the time and we have to patch 2 hours per day. I’m a bit nervous how we will do […]

Last week, Lucas had a follow up with his pediatric specialist eye doctor. While I wish I could say we saw improvement and some good news, it just did not work out that way. Partially, I think a lot had to do with the many uncorrected issues we had with the original pair of glasses. […]

This past week has not been a fun one. After Aubrey had some tummy issues that she had in the past, immediately upon getting her home from the doctor, Lucas began throwing up. Since then, he and Nathan have both stayed sick, and Aubrey and I have been hit with it. We’ve been told over […]

It is hard to believe but in January, when the boys turn three, it is proposed they enter public preschool for their speech delay. Little did I know the “battle” I’d be facing on top of this decision. Since the twins were born, I’ve always stood to the fact I wanted the boys in the […]

Being a “Special Needs” Mom

This post may contain provided product or affiliate links. All opinions are 100% my own. Find out more on our disclosure page.

When you have early intervention services with your child, or in our case children (the twins), some of the things that you are told just make sense and it clicks. Then of course, you try to explain it to others around you and you end up looking like you are trying to speak Greek. This […]

With both girls seeing eye doctors last month and Kelsie starting to wear glasses, it’s become more obvious to me that the twins, especially Lucas, might have some vision issues. It’s odd that you notice things more prominently after being aware, (just like when you get a new car and EVERYONE on the road has […]

It is hard to believe the twins will already be turning three in January. It really isn’t a lie when people say time flies. We have still remained in speech therapy and early intervention services since the twins were born and unfortunately, we have made little progress in language. We have a lot of jibber […]
