Self care is hard for me. This spring was extremely difficult, between the choice to change schools, Summit’s surgeries and some financial challenges, life felt and feels a bit out of control. Summit is recovering and I’m reminding myself to be centered on TRUTH and not how I feel. Thankful for friends with airline miles and a free place for the weekend in San Diego to breathe and be still. ❤️

A day in the life of a mom with a Williams Syndrome child: 
4:30 am I could hear stirring in the living room. I quietly enter and find Chase snuggled on the couch “Good morning my best friend Mommy. Do you want to lay with me and see the sun come up? It is beautiful to watch just like you” 
Sometimes you just have to embrace the love that emulates and sit quietly to witness the start of a new day. #williamssyndrome #sunrise #newbeginnings #couchcuddles #specialneedsmom #alliscalmallisbright #summergoals2018 #summersun2018

I love the mom I am. There I said it. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Yes! I have days where I cry myself into my pillow with regret for the day that just happened. Maybe I spent too much time on my business or fed the kids Mac and cheese for the third time in one day. Or maybe I regret not spending more time on the floor playing. I get it. 
But I also have learned to accept the bigger picture and know my heart is bursting with love and sacrifice. 
I pride myself on my mothering skills and I slay at it. I’m not saying I’m just good at it but I am the best at it. 
Now let me say my kids throw fits. They act out in the worst times. But they are good humans with loving hearts.

I’m raising compassionate young boys. My boys will be the best husbands and dads. 
Tag a mommy you know that slays at mommyhood! Oh it’s YOU that slays at mommyhood! Then SHOUT yourself out! Own it girl!

dear mommy that feels the need to hide milestones,

I want you to know that we want to celebrate milestones with you. We encourage you to share those experiences with us. I know you want to feel sorry for us. Please do not. In fact some days I feel sorry for you. 
We are blessed in a way that I cannot explain. We are also honored that you want to celebrate our baby. Our sweet boy may not hit milestones on the average timeline and that is okay.

Does it sting to see your baby crawl, walk, or talk months before our baby? Of course it does. It always will a little. But just when that sting tries to enter my heart God fills it with warmth and pure love.

We love your babies. We want to see them. They give us joy and hope. I know that our sweet boy will hit those milestones in HIS timing. In the meantime we will love and live through your babies! <3

love,
a mommy with a perfect baby

How do you discuss milestone “hiding” with your friends?

Ben finally got his birthday present from us-a trip to see one of his favorite people in the world @coyotepeterson !!! Great show AND Ben got to see him up close when he came into the audience!  Ben could not contain himself (everyone was supposed to stay quiet), but he yelled “Hi Coyote Peterson!”. Coyote was nice enough to give him a quiet “hey there buddy”—made Ben’s whole night!  Big day and he’s on cloud nine!  @bravewilderness #BeBraveStayWild #midwesttour #williamssyndrome #pantages

Pray for this boy. 🙏  Both his sisters just left for camp...he's never been without both of them for an extended period of time.  Many tears were shed as he begged them not to go.💔
The role of a special needs sibling is so very important.  They are often the only real, deep, meaningful relationships Nolan will have outside Brandon and I.  While that relationship is super sweet, it's also good for the girls to get away and be independent.  These 5 days will be super hard for Nolan. Pray for Nolan.

Do you think you are not enough for your new baby?

Meet Finnlee, our miracle baby. Finnlee was born 04/28/15, weighing in at a whopping 5lbs. 8oz. Now looking back, Finnlee was extra special. I had a very difficult time feeding him. In fact, a nurse had to come in and help me nurse him every single time he fed. I, of course, was incredibly tired and feeling lost. I remember thinking how hard it was to be a mommy to the second baby. I was having a hard time attaching myself to him. He was unhappy every second of the day. I love now being able to put the pieces together. I know now that it wasn’t me. I was doing the best I could do and my baby didn’t need “more,” but needed “differently.” For example, I remember the room being very bright and there were lots of sudden noises. I know now that those sensory “things” startle and upset Finnlee. I know now that I am EXACTLY what my baby needs. I am everything in his world as he is in mine.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••I know it’s hard, momma. However, I want you to know that there is hope of letting that guilt you are feeling go. You too can find the joy in being the mommy our creator chose for your little blessing.

WeekDAY Adventure: When a friend invites you to tag along on a quick day trip to Winter Park to explore and play you can’t say no. 🤷‍♀️
*
The free gondola opens tomorrow with the rest of the town waking up for the summer season next Saturday! The alpine slide and kids area looks like fun, we’ll be back! The town itself was beautiful with lots of great outdoor patios. We went thrift store shopping and played in the city park. Now we are sunburned and tired. Good way to start the boys’ summer vacation!
