Life is Better When You're Laughing

Moms, think back to life BC--Before Children. What could you do then that you can't do now?  You could take a quick trip to the store without packing an entire room of your house. You could walk through your living room without looking down, even in the dark. You could sleep in on the weekend. You could laugh without worry.  Yes, I'm talking about Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) . It happens to a lot of moms, and it doesn't just affect moms. Women haven't given birth can also be affected by LBL. Luckily, there's a solution. Poise makes products just for LBL. A lot of women use a period pad, and these are great for your period. Not so great for LBL. Poise pads are made just for LBL, so they absorb better. Poise panty liners absorb 3 times better than period pads!  The liners are thin, so they are better for those days that you need light coverage. Sam's Club has a great deal on Poise liners right now. You can get 132 Very Light Absorbency Liners for $11.68,

Teaching Emotions to Children With Autism With Inside Out Charades

All opinions are mine alone. #InsideOutEmotions #CollectiveBias I'm an autism mom.  Times two.  Both of my boys have high functioning autism, and I also have a neurotypical daughter.  I believe that autism is a superpower, but that doesn't mean that my boys don't have challenges.  Since they are both high functioning, sometimes people don't think they do have autism.  Although they are both verbal and appear to be typical at first glance, they do have challenges that affect them in their daily lives.  One trait of autism that they both have is having difficulty reading other people's emotions and expressing their own emotions.  That's why we love the movie Inside Out so much.  When the movie came out on DVD on November 3, I went to Walmart to buy it for my kids, and you should too!  Keep reading to see how I'm using the movie to teach my kids how to read and express their emot
