All fall long, people have been predicting a really brutal winter but the first really big blast of cold came through this week. Today, Zoe ditched her coat and ran around the house. I know that many kids with sensory issues don’t react to the cold, but it was FROSTY out there! As the mom […]

I received this product to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own. Pachy is offering 15% off your total order with the code “Momblog14,” valid until 12/4/14. I have been failing on my goal to work out. Part of that has to do with my thyroid being “off” (long story), but I’m also truly bored by my options on […]
