Decisions – The Future of PDL

After much thought and consideration, I have decided to take an extended hiatus from blogging here at Polka Dots and Lemonade.

On My Mind – Zach Sobiech

There’s been a lot of sadness in the world over the last few weeks. The Boston Marathon Bombings. The Moore, Oklahoma (and surrounding area) tornadoes. The London Terror Attack.

:Sensory Processing Disorder: Update on Monkey

So, yesterday was a super busy day for us, as I had told you it would be back on Tuesday! We had an Occupational Therapy evaluation, and then an Autism/behavioral eval right after. Both evaluations went great, and I feel that we made great progress today in getting Monkey the services she needs for her [Read On] ...more

:Clean Eating Recipe: Garlic and Parmesan Kale Chips

I have to admit – I’ve been super afraid to try Kale of any kind. Something about it has just freaked me out. But, I am always hearing people talk about Kale Chips, and how good they are, so I decided to give them a try. Here’s what I came up with: The best part? [Read On] ...more

Sensory Processing Disorder: Overwhelming Emotions

I feel like I’ve been such a flake lately, when it comes to my entire life. My blog is being neglected. My house is being neglected. My improved eating habits are being neglected. My workout schedule is being neglected. My kids probably feel like they’re being neglected. And I’ve pretty much been making everyone around [Read On] ...more
