Welcome mama! I’m so glad you stopped by. I’m Vickie, a working, married mom of two kids, one neuro-typical and one with special needs.
For me, motherhood didn’t turn out to be anything I ever imagined, good and bad.
I’ve been to some dark places as a mother who’s recovered from PPD, but I’ve also felt so much joy I thought I might explode, watching my kids discover new things, or making them laugh with games I played when I was a kid.
That’s just the coolest thing ever.
I’m learning every day that sometimes the bare minimum is more than enough, that self compassion is more important than self esteem and that a couple of glasses of wine after a hard day of momming taste even better!
Outside of motherhood, I’m a huge Muppet fan, I loooovve crème brulée, and I think green jelly beans that taste like mint are just deceiving. Jelly beans shouldn’t freshen your breath. Just no.
Come follow me on Instagram for more about me, my kids, being a special needs mom and of course, all the upcoming features, events and awesomeness I’ve got planned for MomsTO Niagara!
