Okay, I'll admit it, when it comes to taking care of my family, I'm a bit of a control freak. I am on top of everything (or try to be!). As the mom of 2 boys, including one with autism, I am in charge of coordinating appointments, filling out paperwork, and making sure they're getting everything they need.
But I'm not so good at taking care of myself. I am always last on my "To Do List". Between being a full time mom and working full time, I just don't have enough time to take care of all of my needs. Whether it's going to the salon for a haircut, working out, or even just taking a relaxing bath, it's hard to find the time!
I've come to realize though, this isn't a good life plan. Taking care of everyone else- my kids, my husband, my co-workers- but by not taking care of myself, I'm putting my own health at risk. So when my friend and fellow special needs mom, Kathy Kelly, asked me to join her on her new podcast, I was excited and up for the challenge.
The Special Needs Moms show is for moms who have kids with special needs. But instead of talking about our kids and their special needs, we're talking about us and our special needs! Together we will explore realistic ways to stay healthy. So if you're the mother of someone with autism, sensory processing disorder, down syndrome, ADHD and/or other related conditions- this is the podcast for YOU!
