New Living Room Decor

Along with the new decor that I have been working on, I decided to change my living room decor. This was simply because when I had COVID back in December, I wanted to change things around! 

I really enjoyed the progress of how it all came together and wanted to share it with you all!

The Affordable Security Camera Any Mom Needs!

Last year I invested in the Ring Doorbell and I love it. There aren’t any monthly fees, nothing. It was exactly what I needed to feel secure and know that I was safe. 

So this past Christmas, I invested in security cameras. I used to have other ones in the past, but I hate the monthly fees and upkeep that come with it. 

I personally love this one just because of the fact it is easy to use and doesn’t have any additional fees. It was super easy to set up, too. I didn’t have to waste time trying to deal with tech support!

Baseball Must Have’s

I am excited for Antonio to start baseball again this year. Last year it was a little different because he was with a special needs program. It was incredible, but he is ready for the next phase.

This year will still be special needs baseball, but will have much more competition and growth to it. It can be hard sometimes for autistic children to understand how to play and compete with others. I am looking forward to guiding him this year.

A numberblock 7th Birthday Party

I am excited about another birthday party this year for Antonio. This year he is really into Number Blocks; he of course totally loves his Mickey. We have had a ton of Mickey parties over the years, so we wanted to do something different.

Plus, he is really into math, numbers, learning, and drawing. It is so interesting to see him develop each and every year. 

He picked out this theme and I am looking forward to it! Here are some great party supplies and gift items.

How I Got My Nonverbal Son Talking

My son is now six years old and is really moving mountains by increasing his speech. He has been nonverbal for most of his life. He still is considered nonverbal just because he can’t form sentences and communicate efficiently. However, he is at the stage in life right now where he is talking and repeating words more than ever before. 

Here are some things that we have done to increase that talking: 

  1. iPad with music and songs: he loves to listen and repeat what they are saying!
  2. If he wanted something say it and reward: I would ask him to say something and offer a reward  (a cookie usually) if he said it. 
  3. Help break down the words: We worked on making the noises rather than words. 
  4. Form small sentences whenever he wants something rewarding: I ask him what do you want? Do you want cookie? He says yes, I say okay say “I want to eat cookie.”  
  5. Allow time: This one is hard, we can’t push him. We have to allow it to happen on its own! 
  6. Don’t cause frustration: Frustration leads to being mad and tantrums. He wants to talk, and he is trying his hardest. 
  7. Always praise: Even if it is NOT exactly pronounced correctly, I make sure to praise him as best as I can.  
  8. Video record so he watches it: He LOVES to watch videos of himself saying words and then trying to say it back to me. 
  9. Communicate talk at times so they can take it all in: I try to ask engaging questions to him, as well as communicate with him. I tell him what I am doing so he can take it in and understand more. 
  10. Ask him to say .. (whatever word you want him to say): This is great! He really does this and tries so hard to repeat it back! 

All of these items have helped grow a little bit more and more each day. Whenever I really give him great praise and get super excited, he loves it even more and laughs. This is one of my favorite things. I get so excited every single time he makes a new noise and tries to communicate verbally. He also loves watching the videos I record and repeats the words back that he says in there! It;’s so cute and a win-win. 

I once was told that he might not ever talk; I’ve been praying hard for YEARS for this to not be true. Patience is a must and I have learned that just by having an autistic son. It is important to not ever give up on any child no matter what they are going through. There are plenty of resources and tools to help your child out. I had Antonio in many therapy sessions to help and would work with him at home. 

We are not able to fully form sentences yet, but also it can be tough to understand him sometimes. However, I can usually pinpoint and understand more than others what he’s trying to say; it’s a work in progress.

Awesome, and different, Mother’s Day Gifts

Every single year, I go through the same thoughts for the holiday of Mother’s Day… what do I get my mom, and others, this year? The truth is, we have so much stuff already. It can be fun and creative to find something different and outside of the box.  

 Lately I have been inspired to take up cooking more as a hobby, so I of course thought about the appliances that I could use to make my life easier. Antonio is LOVING french fries and chicken nuggets so an air fryer is top on my list.

Best Black Wedges For Ladies

I am always on the hunt for amazing new clothing! It can be tough to find good fashion especially online. Online seems to be amazing these days lately since I can’t go out much. I have enjoyed finding some new fashion trends. 

I was getting ready to hang out with a friend and realized that I did not have any black wedges. I needed them they can go with just about anything. So I went on amazon and ordered these beauties, they are SOOOO comfortable!!! I love wearing them.

Chores For a Four-year Autistic Child

Since being put on lockdown I have had my autistic son home with me 24-7. At first, I was quite upset about him being home simply because he was doing so well in his ABA program and it took so long to get to where we are today. I did not know how he would adapt to the change of being home with mom all day every day for an unknown amount of time. 

I also was worried he would regress. Regressing is when someone goes backward with everything that they have learned and obtained; he had mastered so many goals. I was worried that I couldn’t fulfill the duties that he was used to from his teachers. It was a lot of stress for me, but he adjusted well. 

I was proactive and put him into online programs where they helped me obtain his old demands and new goals. It is always a lot of work and time to change these things since there are so many loopholes. 


However, since being home and working with him there have been new victories for Antonio: 

  1. He will put his dishes away and throws any leftover food away in the trash. 
  2. I have him help bring in the groceries, unload them, and put them away with me.  
  3. Antonio feeds the dogs. He will take the container of dog food and put it in the bowls. Then he will put the container back into the closet and close the door.
  4. He puts his clothes in the hamper. 
  5. This one is my favorite, he goes to the bathroom 100% on his own. He will walk into the bathroom, then wash his hands and come back out all on his own. 
  6. Antonio can write his name. We are working on adding more vocabulary and writing to his goals. 
  7. He initiates all the things and I LOVE IT. We work on noises, sounds, and words as often as we can. He tries so hard! 
  8. He plays music and loves dancing. We work on being active as much as we can and he has grown so much with his skills. 

All of these things have been so fun and important for him to achieve. He always amazes me when he goes above and beyond. I love how hard he works and how he listens so well; I give simple commands and he implements so well. It can be hard to communicate sometimes with a non-verbal child, but we have a system in place. 

These are all huge praises for an autistic child.  Even though COVID-19 we are still able to maintain all these things, and more. I am thankful we have had this time together.
