Lucas carries this blanket everywhere. He carefully covered up the fireplace area with it, patted it, and then sat down on it and watched TV. Anyone else’s kiddo {with Autism or without} have a lovey they carry everywhere?

Luke’s birthday was a couple weeks ago and I already shared pictures from our tropical party but wanted to share some from the last half of the day as well :)

Disney Cars Themed Birthday Party Ideas

CARS BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

(This post includes affiliate links)

The boys had a blast at their Disney Cars themed birthday party.

Below are some of the Cars decorations, treats, and fun themed activities we did:

Indoor Fun: Car mat w/ cars

Find a similar rug here: Disney Pixar Cars Racing Interactive Game Rug

***

Jacob colored a Lightning McQueen cutout and then we had smaller cars as well to decorate the living room

***

The cake table was setup with balloons, some cars cutouts, and the goodie bags

***

Dessert #1: Rice Krispie Treat Stoplights- I had planned to dip the rice krispie treats in chocolate before putting the m&m’s on them but we were short on time.

***

Dessert #2: Cars cake

***

The boys LOVED this huge Cars mural. It was over 5 feet tall. I got it from Party City and plan on finding a permanent home for it in the boys room.

Here is a similar wall mural: Disney Pixar The World of Cars Giant Decorating Kit

***

I found this trophy and thought it would be perfect for the party. I told them it was the Piston Cup, just like the Cars try to win in the movie. They are still carrying it around days later :)

Here is a similar Trophy Set- Great for Goody Bags

***

The kids enjoyed doing a Cars sand art project. It was really messy so I was happy that I’d chosen to do it outside!

***

All of the children had fun breaking apart the pinata. I liked this one because all they had to do was pull strings for it to open. The ones that need to be broken open with a bat are not so easy for my young kids to do.

Find one on Amazon here: Disney Cars Lightning McQueen Pinata, Pull String

***

I bought Mater party hats but we found them hard to put together. The kids didn’t like them because the hats covered their eyes. This was the one party item I bought that I wish I wouldn’t have.

***

At the end of the party the kids got Cars themed goodie buckets overflowing with Cars themed fun.

Overall it was a great party! :)

1 In 88 Is Not Just A Number {Autism Awareness Month}

mommy and lucas

(Update 4/2/14: The new numbers are 1 in 68.)

1 in 88.

That’s the new number that’s being given from the CDC.

1 in 88 children have Autism.

My son, Lucas, is one of those 88.

I see it when he plays as he lines up his cars and then gathers them into a pile.

I see it in his eyes as I desperately try to understand what he is trying to tell me.

I see it as I watch him contort his little mouth into a scream at what seems like nothing.

I see it as he spins around, on tippy toes, and moves his arms to the music he hears.

Know what else I see?

I see a little boy whose smile lights up the room.

I see a little boy who couldn’t be happier cuddling in the crook of daddy’s arm.

I see a little boy who will laugh with delight as he runs around outside.

I see a little boy who is just the same as he was before his diagnosis.

1 in 88 is not just a number.

He’s my son.

The same little boy that stole my heart the day he was born.

Stories Of Autism & Firefly Nights Photography

blog2

In December, Lucas was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We found out about this wonderful non-profit, Stories of Autism, that is “dedicated to heightening autism awareness through the exhibition of its portraits and stories of children and adults on the autism spectrum.” They match children who have Autism to a local photographer to tell the children’s stories through a picture and we were matched with Megan of Firefly Nights Photography.

I was kind of nervous because our last experience {at a department store photography studio} was an absolute disaster. My children were antsy and didn’t want to sit still which made it difficult to get a good picture but, even worse, was the negative attitude of the photographer. Every minute or so she’d make a comment or disgusted noise every time my 3 year old son moved. Not only did she do this in front of our family but she made the comments loud enough for people outside the room to hear. I was embarrassed and furious at the behavior of this so called “manager” of the studio so I finally just blurted out that they had special needs. It stopped the constant stream of comments on her end and I got a “sorry, I didn’t know”. I was so upset that, after over 3 and a half years of going to the same photography studio, I never returned to get pictures taken there again. I even received a coupon for free portraits as an “apology” from their corporate office but my experience was so horrible that I don’t intend to use it. I didn’t want anything free. I just wanted assurance that these photographers would receive training on dealing with children who had special needs so no family would ever have to go through what ours went through.

I didn’t know that there were photographers out there who specialized in taking pictures of children who have special needs.

After being matched with Megan I looked through her site and saw that she took stunning pictures. That was wonderful but what really excited me was that she had experience working with children who had special needs and was the mother of one herself. Even more reassuring was the contract that I had to sign that had a rule saying parents could not apologize for their child’s behavior. It was comforting to know that I was not going to have to stress out if Lucas didn’t sit still or if he had a meltdown. She would understand because she’s been there, too.

On St. Patrick’s Day we headed over to her photography studio. My mom came with so she could help with Jacob while Lucas was getting his pictures taken. The Firefly Nights Studio was nice and spacious and Megan encouraged my two little sensory seekers to run from one end of the room to the other while we got set up. Deciding that it would be tough to get pictures of Lucas while his brother was there my mom took Jacob out for a walk. We started with trying to take pictures of Lucas jumping on the bed but he didn’t want to do that. Megan did get some great shots of him on the bed laying down. Here’s one of them:

Megan was very patient and had no problem switching up what she was doing depending on Luke’s cues. She didn’t try to force any poses {which my little opinionated Lucas would not have allowed anyways}. Eventually he ended up sitting on a crate in another part of the studio, eating a lollipop and playing with a box of band-aids. Megan assured me that she could edit some of the shots so those distractions wouldn’t be in the pictures. She ended up with a beautiful photo to send in for Stories of Autism that I absolutely love. You can see which image she chose over in her blog post.

I am so thankful for Megan donating her time to Stories of Autism. I wanted to share that she also does something special for Autism Awareness Month in April. She has two days that she offers mini sessions to families with no session fee and no minimum order. April 14th she is offering sittings for children with Autism and on April 22nd she is having “sibling day” and taking pictures of children who have a sister or brother on the spectrum. You can learn more about these very special days on Megan’s blog. Sessions are filling up fast (if not full already) so make sure to contact her as soon as you can.

If you take your child, with special needs or not, to Firefly Nights Photography I’d love to hear about your experience and see the pictures you get taken!

(Disclosure: My son received a free photography session and we are receiving a disk of images since we visited through Stories Of Autism. I was not compensated to write a post about our experience but I wanted to because we had such an amazing experience and I want other families in the Chicago area to know that getting pictures taken of their special needs children can be a great experience.)

Cool Cuts 4 Kids {Review and Giveaway}

Luke's haircut

Lucas is one of those kids that constantly seems to be needing a haircut so I was excited to visit Cool Cuts 4 Kids for the first time. As soon as I walked in I knew the place would be a hit with both my children. I loved that there were things to keep the kids busy while they waited to get their hair cut. There was a television playing kids shows and a “game” wall for the older kids to play video games.

We went in the early afternoon. I had scheduled an appointment but we would have been okay that day just walking in without an appointment too since there was no wait. It did get busier right around the time we were leaving so I’d recommend making an appointment if you can.

The person that cut my son’s hair did a great job. She asked me what I wanted done to his hair and didn’t judge me when I said, “I really don’t care. I just don’t want to have to get another haircut in another couple weeks.” I always thought I’d be one of those parents who was really particular about my children’s hairstyles but I’m just not that way. She was very thorough cutting his hair and even asked me if he would be ok with clippers before she used them on him. I think he looked adorable with his new haircut and he enjoyed watching Toy Story 2 and didn’t even seem to care that someone was doing something with his hair.


Haircuts are about $18 so since I had a gift card I picked up some hair care products for the kids. They were buy one, get one half off plus I received 20% off my entire purchase because it was my first time in the salon. With the purchase of two hair care items I also got a free Cars 2 set which I’m putting away for the first day of school. The employees had difficulties with the register which was frustrating since I was holding my two year old for 15-20 minutes but they kept apologizing and in the end gave me Luke’s haircut for free to make up for keeping me waiting while they figured out the register issues. I thought that was nice of them and overall I had a positive experience so I would return. (Though I do wish they had a store closer to my home since this salon was about 45 minutes away from my house.)

Here’s the boys’ newest picture taken at JcPenney Portraits. We moved in November so when we had to switch studios I was disappointed because I loved our photographers. I think the photographer at this new studio did a great job with my two little wiggle worms and actually got shots of them both sitting together so I was very happy! :)

Fun In The Sun (And A Giveaway)

Jacob and Lucas recently had a playdate with their cousins, Camden and Maddie. They spent most of the time outside in the sun.

Cousin Maddie

As you can see, all four children are very fair skinned. It’s really important for them to wear sunscreen when they are in the sun like that. Usually we just use a child lotion sunscreen and my boys fight with me to put it on and wiggle around so I end up missing spots or they walk around looking like ghosts because I don’t rub it in all the way. That won’t be a problem anymore with this new sunscreen we received.

KINeSYS sent me some sunscreen to review. I used it the other day and love it. The sunscreen that they make is easy to apply because it can be sprayed on. It comes either unscented or scented (the one I tried was mango scented- yummy).

Here’s a little bit more about the sunscreen from the flyer that came with it:

  • UVA/UVB protection with Parsol 1789
  • Oil-free/ Alcohol-free/PABA-free
  • Preservative-free
  • Very water-resistant and sweat-resistant
  • Hypoallergenic/ Non-comedogenic
  • Over 700 sprays per bottle

Sunscreen for kids

WIN IT!

One winner will receive a bottle of KINeSYS Kids SPF 30 sunscreen.

HOW?

Leave a comment telling me your favorite outside activity. That’s it! (Of course if you want to subscribe to this blog that would be great, too, but not required.)

This giveaway ends July 7, 2010 at 11:59pm. Good luck! :)

(Disclosure: I was provided two bottles of sunscreen in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.)

Slow Down

As I sit here and think about all the things that I have to do this weekend I have been hearing “slow down”. Maybe it’s God’s voice. Maybe it’s my brain telling me that if I overload it with one more thing it will explode. Maybe it’s my body telling me it needs to relax….

Whatever it is, I’m listening and I’m obeying the voice.

*******************************************************************

I will not hurry to go anywhere.

I will not do a load of the laundry that’s piling up.

I will not get online and work on blogging.

I will not talk with friends on twitter or facebook.

I will not notice that dust bunny under the hall table.

I will not clean up the boys room while they play.

What will I do?

I will spend all morning playing with and loving my boys.

I will spend all morning cherishing every smile and giggle.

I will spend all morning watching my oldest attempt to count his fingers and my youngest as he starts to walk.

I will spend all morning thanking God for the wonderful gifts He has given me.

What will you spend the morning doing?

Why I Love Being A Parent

This week I am participating in Top 3 Thursday, a meme from Tamara and Elizabeth.

This week’s question is:

What are your Top 3 favorite things about being a parent?

3. Hugs and Kisses: There is nothing better than a slobbery kiss and a giant hug (except maybe one with just a little less saliva and maybe some clean hands would be nice). I think that once Jacob and Lucas can tell me that they love me that will rank up in my top three things, too.

2. Watching them grow up and learn new things: As a past preschool teacher I have known the satisfaction one gets when watching a child do something for the first time. It’s even greater when it’s something that I have taught them. Greater yet is watching your own child do something new. The pride that I feel when one of the boys do something new is overwhelming and I want to share it with everyone that will listen. If you are my twitter or facebook friend you know I was so proud of my toddler for going to the bathroom on the toilet because I announced it. Yes, I am THAT mom… I swore I would never be one of “those moms” but turns out I am!

1. “The feeling”: I’ve heard it said that no (humanly) love is greater than a mother’s love and that you can’t know how strong a mother’s love is until you are a mother yourself. No explanation here because if you are a mother you know the feeling I am talking about and if you aren’t a mom there are no words that I could use to describe this feeling!

So those are my top 3 reasons I love being a mom. If you have a post make sure to visit Elizabeth and Tamara and link up. If you do not have a blog I would love for you to leave a comment below telling me why you love being a parent. Regardless, feel free to leave me some comment love :)
