Anyone Need Shoes for an AFO?

Anyone Need Shoes for an AFO?

Anyone need a pair of shoes to fit an AFO? My daughter who is 4 has several new pairs of shoes because we have to buy two pairs each time we purchase a new set. So we have a right shoe, size 7, left shoe, size 6, another right, size 8, left, size 7. We buy a larger size for her left foot (one that wears the AFO) and a smaller size for her right foot. I have tried to find a non profit who would take a donation like this but have had no luck.

If interested, please comment below. If pay for shipping, I would be happy to donate them.

Best Spoons for Feeding

Best Spoons for Feeding

Love these spoons. They have been the best with Birkley because they are soft and rubbery. Plus the handle is thicker so it’s easy for her to hold. I looked all over for these because I needed more to bring to her school and finally […]

Children’s Hospital…Another Roller Coaster Ride

These days we aren’t visiting Children’s so much so going to Birkley’s appointment the other week brought back so many memories. I had all the kids with me but thank goodness for the free child care they offer for siblings. At least I could unload […]

For me, I like to buy a few “in” pieces every so often just so when I go out with my husband or friends, I can feel good about myself and escape the every day craziness of being a mom. This is a guest post […]

A Variety of Flavor and Foods for Your Child to Try

A Variety of Flavor and Foods for Your Child to Try

Although every child is different, Birkley is loving all kinds of “sweet and salty” and spicy foods. Again these are not as meals but more for just trying out different foods and flavors. Birkley gets really frustrated if she wants to eat and can’t exactly […]

Last Minute Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

Last Minute Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

Mothers Day Memory Vase
(Mother’s Day gift I made for my mom)

We are all about homemade gifts in our house. We love to be artsy and even if your art project doesn’t turn out the way you thought it would, I think it’s still the best when it comes to showing someone how much you appreciate them. With these ideas, they don’t take long and something anyone can do.

1. Iron on photograph on a tote – Buy iron on transfer paper at an office or craft store. Mom’s would love a cute picture of their kids or grand kids on their bag.

2. Memory Jar or Vase – I loved this. Think of a certain memory you have of your mom and add whatever you want in the jar. Found the idea on www.marthastewart.com.

3. Paint your own canvas – Craft stores carry all different sizes of stretched canvas. Use acrylic, watercolor or whatever paint you have and if your not an artist, paint stripes, polka dots, small flowers or any other simple pattern. You can glue a photo to it, pieces of fabric, buttons, or anything you find around the house.
