Our newest project - Letting our weird light shine bright!!! 

We are in the beginning stages of creating a show.  A TV show.  An HOUR LONG, once weekly TV show...that will probably also be on You Tube - because thats how kids watch "TV" now - and we will put it on our website too.  I wanted to share my "why".

I (we) are doing this because there is a big empty space in the entertainment land for kids that is encouraging, uplifting, fun, funny, educational and GOOD.  My kids watch the most ridiculous things these days.  We don't let them watch things that are BAD of…

Not really sure where this is going to go but...... 

This is a bit "stream of consciousness" right now....

Do you all realize that we have been doing THIS for a YEAR now?!??!?  That is rhetorical obviously (enter eye rolling emoji).  But it REALLY hit me HARD just now as I was doing some housekeeping stuff for our website and podcasts.  Its been a YEAR since we did our last podcast episode.  We only did two so its not like its THAT big of a loss...but I think its kind of telling about how hard this really has been.  We have been in our home - where we do the…

A Pretty Crazy School 

As we are all experiencing, 2020 has brought things into our lives that we NEVER thought would be possible.  Mostly over here in Crazytown we have adapted.  We definitely have struggled, but we have adapted and we have survived.  The one thing that we just could not get through here though has been school.  For our very bright and very social Third grader, not having the stimulation of her friends and the push of her teachers in person has caused her so much stress and sadness and defiance and its just been…

Where do we even begin??? Begin again. 

Its been a LONG time since I sat down and tried to write a piece for this part of the website.  Like SO long.  I had a goal that I would just write a little something every week or so.  That I would drop the girls off at school, come home and sit down to share something crazy or to work on some songs, edit a new podcast episode (that we would have recorded earlier in the week) or maybe work on our new letter...update our socials....all the things.  NONE of that has happened.  Well at least not with any sort…

Just One Buddy 

Yesterday I wrote a post for our Facebook and Instagram pages about sending Lu off to her first day of school. It was definitely a heartfelt purge after I had sobbed all the way home and to be honest I’m still a LITTLE teary...I’m pulling it together now though (haha!1). Basically, I just wrote about how hard it is for us parents to send our kids off for the first day, how extra hard it is when our kids have “extra” whatever’s, how this year she really is going to be challenged - but these challenges are…

Chicken Pox and Kindergarten Graduation 

     Unbelievably, with what has to be the worst timing ever, Vi has come down with Chicken Pox.  I am completely blown away by this because she was vaccinated and I honestly didnt think that kids got them any more.  Welp.  Turns out, they do.  Just to a lesser degree than WE did and apparently you dont rub your kids on other kids to infect them anymore ”like in the olden days when my mom was a kid” as Vi has been telling people.  She is handling it like a caged lion.  She‘s not itchy or uncomfortable in…

“Down Syndrome” isnt a bad word. 

Its that time of year again!!  Rock your socks for World Down Syndrome day!!!  By this time you all probably know why its 3/21 but if you forgot, this day was chosen because Down Syndrome occurs when there is 3 copies of the 21st chromosome.  So we are three (and a little bit) years in to our journey with DS now and whats really been on my mind lately is that Down Syndrome is not a bad word.  You dont need to say it in hushed tones or with a sad or confused or embarrassed look on your face.  There is…
