St Patrick's Day Push Pin Printables

Is St Patrick's Day really less than a month away? I cannot believe it's almost March! We've actually started preparing some fun and simple invitations to explore St Patrick's Day. One of the St Patrick's Day activities I set up was a simple pin poking printable. 

As you may have noticed, we have been loving pin poking activities lately. Y has really been fascinated with writing, so we are amping up the writing practice using salt trays, DIY sandpaper letters, pin poking activities, and actually writing. These have all been part of a laid back way to prepare him for learning to read and write. He's really been enjoying his exploration in letters and pre-writing activities like these!

Paralysis: 2 years later

I'm going to start off this post with a bit of a disclaimer. It's raw, emotional, and difficult. It's about paralysis and how I have been coping. It's a struggle to portray my thoughts coherently so please bear with me. 

Coping with paralysis: 2 years later by Welcome to Mommyhood #paralysis #wheelchair

On March 15, it will be two years. Two years since I walked. Since I was able to run and play with my son. I've been grieving that a lot lately. The day before I was injured, my husband and I took our then two and a half year old son on a walk with one of his outdoor cars, the kind you can sit on. 

We took turns pushing him, and even though it was such an uncomfortable position to kneel down, I remember, we just had such a beautiful time together. It's a memory I'll always cherish because it was the last time I was able to run with him. The last time I could kneel down to his level so easily.
