Happy Weekend

I put out a call for spotlights on Instagram this past week and have already had a great response! I'm excited to get some new spotlights out to you ASAP. It's always a lot of work, but really the best work I do here on the blog. I can't wait. I've had a super lazy morning so far... help get the older kids off to school, but a show on for Zuzu and lay back in bed a bit lazy. Sometimes you just gotta do it! We're going to be working on the garden this weekend, but other than that and Mother's Day, it's going to be pretty chill. I know I don't usually do a link roundup, but I actually love a good link round up so I'm going to give it a go since I don't have a spotlight this week.

I've been wearing this shirt on repeat these days (and it seems like everyone comments on it everywhere I go.)

Funniest thing I've watched in a while.

Woa.

So cool to see your friends featured on big time sites, especially when it's for their greatest accomplishment.

One of the best things I've read lately. Long but worth the read.

Made me smile and tear up at the same time.

Went to this last year and it was magical...thinking about going again. Anyone else ever been?

Digging this new lifestyle platform specifically geared toward special needs families.

Mother's Day for the mothers with an aching heart.

Also, how to celebrate Mother's day if you have a toxic mother.

 Thinking about getting these classic and nostalgic shoes for summer.


Hope you have a good weekend and see you back here next week.

XO,
Miggy

  1. Thank you Miggy, read many of your posts for last couple of days- amazing and very educational. You are an extraordinary writer, and I thank you so much for your perspective!

    The funny thing is that I clicked on your blog by pure chance from Pinterest picture of one of your craft projects (feather stamped throw). While I think it's very stylish throw, I didn't have intention to go to your webpage as I typically don't do this kind of DIY. But somehow I clicked the wrong button...

    I love your suggestions how to try to avoid simple pity and try to focus on the things the special needs and other children have IN COMMON.

    I would like to let you know (apologise if someone else have brought this topic already to your attention) that here in UK we have quite a few excellent shows BBC- CBBIES (public TV) featuring special needs children alongside their able bodied friends or/and siblings doing “normal” stuff.

    My favourite show is “Our Family” which follows the lives of 8 sets of young children and their families. Typically the program doesn’t explain what is the child’s illness (“whats wrong with them”) but focuses on the things they do in everyday life (e.g. baking cake with granny).

    There is also hugely popular Mr Tumble featuring children with various disabilities in each show (I must admit I don’t know well tbis one, but my son was watching this at the childminders), and “Melody” has a little girl with a visual impairment as the main character. And a few more.

    I don’t watch live TV much- we use Iplayer only, so my knowledge may be quite fragmented, but I understand that there are at least two CBBIES presenters with visible limb differences. In my opinion this is just amazing because next time my (no special needs) 4 years old child see someone like this in real life he will know that they just look like that cool person in TV...

    Warmest regards from cloudy London,
    Rose
