Holiday Traditions

I am super excited for the Holidays this year, much more than in the past. It’s because I am now a mother and am excited to share the Holiday Spirit with my little guy.  I am excited to create family traditions with my husband and child, and future children to come (yes, we are already talking about when #2 will…

Give Back this Holiday Season…here’s my reason why

I’m not only the PTPA Social Media Coordinator, I’m a very proud (and exhausted) wife and mommy to 3 amazing boys…Ty is 7 and Jayden and Zack are 3 years old. Our Zackie was born with a genetic disorder causing many serious health and developmental issues including; a congenital heart defect (TAPVD) and blocked pulmonary vein, seizures, global developmental delay, facial anomalies, hydrocephalus (fluid and a cyst in his brain), low muscle tone, reflux, bilateral moderate to severe hearing loss (requiring hearing aids), feeding issues (including not being able to drink any liquids), and the need for a Gtube (stomach feeding tube) to name a few.

Create some healthy family traditions!

Holidays bring families and friends together to celebrate and yet bring out our most self destructive habits. Who doesn’t turn back into their child self when they are surrounded by siblings, no matter how grown?! Even if you are a fully functional family (and who has one of those?) the emotional impact of gathering can bring out your childhood eating behaviour.

During the holidays we gather, sit, chat, nibble, eat, sit some more and then have dessert. Rare is the family that actually chooses to do something with health in mind on this (and many other) celebration day.
