I wanted to drop in to say hi and talk about various things. First off I would like to commend all the parents out here that go above and beyond to keep their children safe and who listen to their babies. I’am experiencing some very alarming things myself having a special needs child in the public school system and finding out that when parents are left out of the loop wheter intentionally or unintentionally that it only takes away from a childs best overall experience. I want to take this time to say please parents who bus their children or drop them off and pick them up. PLEASE observe your childs behavior especially if they are non-verbal. Recognize that something may be occurring with them on the bus rides or with them at school to warrant their change in behavior. Get the contacts of all of those OVER the staff at the Dept of Ed or Special Education Office as it may just be that imperative that you speak to those NOT connected to or aka “buddy buddy” with the Principals and AP’s. Utilize the Parent Advocates for Children’s Hotline and even take the free course/class to become a parent advocate yourself. In any case wheter you have taken a class or not YOU ARE YOUR CHILD’S FIRST ADVOCATE!
I just wanted to say that first and formost. And also, when you can drop in to see who and how individuals interact with your child please do so. Get the Parent coordinators info to gather all the dates for meetings and workshops so that you can attend. Ask questions there and network! I’am a Teacher at heart and always will be. And when I became a para as well I wanted to make a positive difference in a childs life. My own child ended up proving to need all that I have to offer and so that has been the case that he is my main priority. Bottom line is that all who work with such children ought to be properly trained. They should have patience and understanding. They should be driven to find solutions to create a better atmosphere for the child. Not to help create the meltdowns but help prevent them. Not to demonize a toddler or adolescent with a disability and push them down some “school to prison pipeline”. But tap into their full potential and help them to be the best that they can be. It pains me to see and know that many schools do not get adequate staffing or training to deal with special needs children. Yet interact with them daily! Also, that IEP’s where Behavior Intervention Plans should be created are not and therefore the staff are running around like chickens with their heads cut off when encountering a child who needs an ACTIVE PLAN AS PER THEIR IEP states. In short parents it’s up to us to protect, ensure of childrens IEP’s are followed and respect is given to our children when we are not present. Now that I have spoke on what is most dear to my heart we can move on to what life offers that counters all the stresses of everyday life….for me that is my love for Organic and plant based skincare lines. My new Vegan lifestyle, Beauty box subscription boxes and Food subscription boxes that makes every month feel like Christmas 😍
We (me and my mini me) are looking forward to recieving our second “Love with Food” box. The link for this one can be found in the prior post! We are also looking forward to the “Degustaboxusa” that rarely dissapoints. Since it is November I have my fingers crossed for some good pumpkin products or cake mix! As far as Beauty boxes are concerned the only one that excites me is the “Onxybox”. Links for this box can also be found in a prior post of mine along with Degustaboxusa! Now as far as new products that I have tried recently and have fallen in love with and may have mentioned in a prior post and will again they are the “Goddiss Yoni Wash” and “Blemishless liquid face mask” by The Urban Goddiss, the “Lanbeli Soap” and lip balm by Senica Naturals , the “Starlightbutter” by Mercuryiii. The “Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse” by DP HUE that I now know of thanks to the October 2017 We Are Onyx Box. Last but not least the “Hemp Heal Hempseed Master Salve” by Natural Mixologist! And if you follow me on IG then you know that there are some new products by different creators that I want to try asap! Im on a budget and actually have enough of what we need and will not be greedy but when Im down to my last plant based bar of soap and moisturizer I will surely be checking the following businesses out! These are their IG accounts and their links. There are some Jewelry and Apparel accounts among them as well! Check them all out when you can!

On this note Im out. I had a big bowl of Oatmeal with some apple sauce, raw sugar and raisins and I just want to sit and chillax . Ah, and work with my LO on his potty training since he is home today. (School trip today that parents were not allowed on unless they arrived at the site of the trip separately -___-….. smh. Such a shame. We shall take our own trips with family where I can ensure his safety. If you know your child you can relate) Until my next post….stay sweet ☺
