Hey Ya’ll. Welcome to SMC.
I’m a girl. I’m a woman. I’m a mom. I have three kiddos- currently all under the age of three. Plus one beautiful full-grown bonus babe.
To be fair.. I am also a stepmom to a Puggle, who is experiencing age-related incontinence. Poor guy. <3

So again who am I?
I’m a mom. I am a pediatric occupational therapist. I own my own private practice. I am an expert in child development. I am a housekeeper. I am an accountant. I am a chef. I am a dog walker. I am a dishwasher. I am tired. I am a professional napper. I am a tea drinker. I am a sensory processing awareness advocate. I am a mom of a “typically developing” child. I am a mom of a more “Neuro-atypical” child. I am a daughter. I am a friend. I am a sister. I am a partner. I am not married (yet). I am a giant ball of anxiety. I am a survivor of mental illness. I am liked. I am disliked. I am.. who I am. And more importantly… I am adjusting to be okay with it all.
I know everything, because I have to answer all the questions for everyone (especially my own littles) all of the time… Why?When?Who?Where?Why?WhyNOT!!!!? #Arewethereyet? #Whatsfordinnertonight?
I also feel like I know absolutely nothing most days…..
I guess thats the paradox of parenting. I also guess thats the paradox of who I am as a person.
So join me. Navigate these rough seas along side of me. Lets tread the rough and the easier waters together.
It is my hope to create a space of openness. A place to find SUPPORT. KINDNESS. UNDERSTANDING. PATIENCE.
For myself. And for you.
Join me. It would please me greatly to meet you. To know you. To hear your stories as I share mine.
