An afternoon spent out of my chair is always a good afternoon. New blog post up called "Finding the Happy in What I Have" talking about a recent trip to the beach and how it inspired my thinking on enjoying the moment, perspective and concentrating on the good and not the bad (link in bio) •

I often wonder if I would fall out of my chair less if I wasn't a mom. Moms are always trying to do too many things at once and almost every time I have fallen out of my chair it is because I am mommy-multi-tasking. Today I am thankful that kids are forgiving because this little one was on my lap when I hit an unforeseen bump and we both hit the ground really fast. We came out of it with just a few minor scratches (mostly on me thank goodness) but she wanted on my lap again right away which helped with the mama guilt. •

Some moms can walk. Some moms can bake cakes. Apparently some can even do both at once but that sounds too complicated for me. My son requested this Pokemon cake for his birthday party and it took me forever but I was pretty proud of it :)

Three is a great number but I have always wanted four children. My newest blog post "The Child Paralysis Stole from Me" talks about my feelings on having another child post-injury. A lot of tears were shed while writing this one. (Link in bio)

My newest blog post talks about the features of "My Accessible Home". Check it out and let me know what you think of what we have done. (Link in bio)

Some days it's the little things that I miss - like walking down the road holding tiny hands while drinking a coffee. •

I can't believe June is over! Ian and I did a 5K on the weekend which was a really great experience. I was going to end the month by writing something about it but I seem to have run out of time! However I did find a poem I wrote a few months after my accident and have posted it on the blog. Check it out (link in bio)

"The Pain in My Paralyzed Legs" is my newest blog post up tonight. Neuropathic pain and muscle spasticity are two big problems for me and this post explains a little bit about them and how I try to cope. (Link in bio) Any tips or tricks that I'm missing?
