Hi! I’m Gloria- the mom half of Liam and Glo.
Around here, you can expect lots of special needs mom life content- mindful parenting and positive discipline. Plus- life chats, homeschooling inspo and a universal no bullshit approach to achieving harmony in mom life, relationships, self-development, and wellness.
I started to blog because I’m an over-thinker who’s always loved the challenge of organizing my thoughts and feelings into words- I like to write. Also because a million years ago- in 2010 actually, I accepted the reality of my life. It’s been deliberate practice ever since.
You can see how that played out in the timeline about how we got here.
This blog serves to celebrate and honor my gratitude in motherhood while exploring and nurturing my- mom minus moppet identity; gluten-free food, and life’s transitions, joys, perspectives, and experiences.
Liam is my eccentric, spirited, true love, and homie with an extra chromie. He’s the hardest working person I’ve ever known.
Liam loves running, theater, bowling, baseball, movies, and video games. He enjoys cooking and baking- mostly baking. He harbors an incredible memory and deep love for animals and trees.
The big dogs he walks all day, erryday include Autism, a slew of speech and language disorders, motor disorders, and delays- with alpha being Trisomy 13. You can find the list on the timeline previously mentioned.
After deciding to leave a dysfunctional relationship, I’m transitioning to a new phase in my life- single, working mom. I have experience with post-traumatic stress, chronic illness and pain; among other things. I’m excited and eager to organize the words to express my thoughts and experiences on this blog and connect with those who can relate.
I’m a relaxed, secular, eclectic, interest-led, unschooly-homeschooler. Thanks to shit insurance, I integrate speech, occupational, and physical therapy.
I’m a mindful parenting mentor and Positive Discipline educator, as well as an adaptive yoga, mindfulness, and meditation teacher for people with complex needs and diverse abilities. Here’s my yoga site, if you wanna see and hang out with me there- TheraPLAYoga.
Liam and I are banana-sandwich about all things Halloween, overly holiday-decorated houses, nature, and science. We love our routines but always ready for an adventure- sunsets and sunrises, exploring new things, practicing yoga, thrift stores, views of the moon, and yard sales with a lemonade stand.
Home is in Lansing, Michigan; where we live with our pitbull we call Bubba Howard, and a beta fish named George- Jorge when we’re feeling spicy (RIP, Georgy).
Whether you’re here for the homeschool inspo, single mom and special needs mom lifestyle chats, parenting and discipline tips- I’m glad for your company and eager for our conversations. Leave your thoughts after posts to contribute. I value the feedback.
