My Wedding Dress, My Wheelchair, & Me

11th January 2019

When I was getting married, I only had a few must-haves for my wedding dress. 3. Wedding dress must not make me look like a giant cupcake and/or little girl playing dress up. 2. Wedding dress must be purple. And my number 1 on my wedding dress list: The dress and I had to both sit comfortably in my wheelchair at the same time.

Disabled Parenting Problems: This Might Become A Series

But it might be too big for…

Edit: It’s now actually 8.50 at night. Dinner, a webinar, and Roald Dahl happened before I could finish this post. Time is weird. Hi. Who’s (still) with me? If you’re interested, here’s my daily routine. For real. Get up, tell Isla that it’s too cold to wear a dress, suggest she…

Inspiration & Marriage Goals

12th September 2018

And so, last week I re-shared an old post about a day in my life as a disabled mother.  Because that’s my every day, it was an OK post, and it was Throwback Thursday. I know it might not be Thursday today, but stick with me. Within minutes, less time than it would take to actually read the post, I was re-shared with the comment, ‘So inspiring!’ Well, shit. For what? Did you actually read the post?’ What is it…
