Here are some fun ideas to maximize your summer fun this year and make it another great summer!

Dinner kit subscriptions are awesome in that you are sent a variety of ingredients to make complete meals.  Depending on the subscription service, you have options for two people or whole families. These kits are not inexpensive but they cost less than going out to dinner at a restaurant.  

Traumatic Brain Injury: Learning to Cope with Emotions for Teenagers with Feeling Buddies


Traumatic Brain Injury: Learning to Cope with Emotions for Teenagers with Feeling Buddies

If you've been around here for awhile, you know my daughter's history with her traumatic brain injury.  Em is an absolutely wonderful daughter and unfortunately, with her traumatic brain injury- she has explosions and she loses control of her emotions.   I have gone the route of mental health support but at the end of the day, she has to learn to COPE with her emotions and how to express them in better ways than she has been.

You may recall, I shared about www.FeelingBuddies.com (here's the previous post).  Feeling Buddies is an at-home self-regulation toolkit to help us, as parents, to teach our children to learn to cope, communicate and regulate their emotions.

Putting on shoes and tying them.  

Slipping on socks. 

Donning a shirt.  

Buttoning pants.

These seem like simple and mundane tasks.  These are the things that we do without much thought- they're second nature to most of us who are physically able to do so.  I know I never thought much about them until my daughter had a traumatic brain injury which caused multiple physical disabilities along with Intellectual disabilities.

Review: My Staycation Box.  Experience the world without leaving your house


Right at this moment, my friend is living it up in Ireland while I pine away here in Arizona.  She has sent me some selfies in front of castles.  Yep, I am totally jealous right now.  In a good way, not a mean way.  

Eventually, I do plan to travel outside of the United States but not until my daughter is older and more independent but in the meantime, I can still experience the world at home thanks to My Staycation Box!  I did receive this box for review purposes but my opinions are own, as always.
