Welcome to my organized chaos
There is a photo with this caption circulating the internet lately and it could not describe my life any more. “I am not trying to be a b*tch, I just haven’t slept in 8 years”
To say that I have tension, aches and pains in my body is an understatement. From being pregnant, to baby stages of no sleeping, nightmare nights, sick kids, sleep walking, and finally to kids who just refuse to sleep in their rooms, I AM A WALKING ZOMBIE. This Pranamat was made for me!
I am always looking for new and creative ways to bring hands on play to my kids. It is no secret that all kids want to do these days is play on their tablets or watch television. But there is so much more to childhood than that!

New Year! This is a chance to reflect on what we did great last year, what we hope to do better this year and just give a little THANK YOU to all of the people who made it possible. Take a deep breath, and either say it out loud, in your head or post it on social media, but give a little speech to those who were there for you and appreciate this so called life. Because no matter how hard it may be, there is someone out there who wishes they had your life.
