My apraxia warrior at 3.5 (he's now 7). He's been in speech since 18months old. If I could go back in time -I'd still advocate like hell -but I'd also remind myself he's perfect as is and to remind him of that even more.
Some children with #apraxia never verbally speak and some do - please be mindful of this when you offer support to us #apraxia parents. Please don't say it's a phase or that they're too 'spoiled' to speak. It's a neurological disorder and it requires early and intensive speech therapy. Let's normalize using sign language and/or assistive technology to communicate - it can help ease frustration and build engagement.
I still remember the first signs Shawn-Micheal learned- he ordered fries at @mcdonalds and he was so damn proud of himself!

Thank you to allthe advocates, therapists, apraxia parents and apraxia warriors for lighting the way for us!

You can pick up our Children's book Beyond Words on Amazon or Barnes & Noble to help spread the word to all children on how to be inclusive.

I'm freaking exhausted. I've had a 3 day flare up and residual joint pain. (I needed help to stand up after this picture.) Thankfully the migraine is subsiding. Remember you can't tell by looking at someone what their struggles are and invisible illness SUCKS.
For my fellow #spoonies I see you! One day at a time!

I want to continue to elevate my writing to challenge this concept that women only exist in relation to men in the arts. Continuing to change the narrative of how women are viewed in literature, plays, the media is what can inspire others to dream big and not feel they have to stay in any box. We are the change makers!

Went for a walk before the Two Hander Slam produced by the multi-talented @craighouk
I was so fortunate to play a part in bringing to life Pamela Morgan's heartfelt show When Life Gives You Lemons! I know they aren't lemons behind me but the yellow felt like a special nod to this dear friends work.
As actors we have the honor, for moments in time, to walk into lives that aren't ours -to feel things that make us grow on and off the stage- yeah this was one of those for me.
If you're on Facebook the show and 6 others with equally amazing writers, actors, and directors will be up for the next 24 hours on my page and Craig Houk's page.
I'm sure this won't be the last time to see this one but go see it.
Shout out to an amazing actor that also directed this piece Matty Griffiths and my lovely stage son Max Beck- I'm so proud of you! 💙

Nearly all COVID deaths in US are now among unvaccinated

Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine.

Good thing I had to empty the dishwasher. I opened it a bit early and the steam gave me a facial. #momlife

"The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” – Tahereh Mafi

I use to say getting my hair done was 'self care.' Until I read this definition...
'Self care is the individual practise of health management without the aid of a medical professional. In health care, self-care is any human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated, for the purpose of the maintenance of health and wellbeing.'
Well- s**t. Lol 😆 let's stop perpetuating taking care of basic needs or getting a mani/pedi is 'self care' we deserve more! Right?

Just finished a master class with Jon Kabat-Zim and I loved how he said there are many doors that lead to the same room. So many clients consider meditation 🧘‍♀️ the only way to mindfulness and that simply is not true.
It also does not mean no judgement- our brains are wired to have opinions and to evaluate our environments. It simply means not acting with harshness or restriction when turning inward. It means breathing more energy in to the 'good within us.

I'm sitting in the rain writing this so I'll leave you with this contemplation.

If you're reading this you're curious- lean into that.

It's been a terrible technology day. My son could get the mouse to work during his virtual speech session then I went to answer a client's call and my phone froze and wouldn't log on to wifi- so guess who was forced to quit work early?!
Put on my gym clothes and cleaned the garage -long over do! Let's restart and try this day over again!
Hope you all had a good day!
