About Misty

@mom.and.kids.play

Hello!there!

My name is Misty and I am a mother, wife,  and a blogger. I enjoy writing about every day life, products or tips/tricks that have improved the quality of my life and may hopefully reach someone else to do the same. 

I am the mother of 4 childrens ranging in ages 4 to 8. I have one kiddo with Dyspraxia, one with ADHD, and two others with minor developmental delays. I too have recently been diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, and what a journey it has been.

I have obtained severalCollege degrees but I have recently decided to work towards a Degree in Speech Pathology.  Having multiple children with different variations of speech delays has been an eye opener for what I am truly passionate about.  Giving a voice to those who do not have one. Whether it be through the ability to communicate or to advocate for those who have so little support to speak on their behalf.

I am passionate when it comes to the awareness and education for communication delays, developmental delays, Autism, Dyspraxia, Apraxia, Sensory Processing, and so much more that fall into this category.

My Interests

  • Long strolls through EVERY.SINGLE.AISLE. at Target. (In typical mom fashion, am I right?) I enjoy a warm cup of coffee on the rare occasion it hasn’t been reheated 4 times before lunchtime, in that case, iced coffee will do.
  • I enjoy reading, not only for myself but as well as to my kids. Reading is just so fundamental, no matter what age or place in life you are at. Reading is literally the answer to every single dilemma life hands you.
  • I enjoy keeping up with the latest nail trends, beauty hacks, skin care products, home decorating, etc. My Pinterest boards stay full and I am constantly adding new boards so that I can “remember” these pins because they are more important than the other 50+ that hold the same general ideas.
  • Cleaning and organization soothe my anxiety. 
  • I love baking and trying new recipes.
  • Quotes are my thing. Home decor, journals, art, etc. that hold quotes on them are truly where it’s at for me. Ask my husband why it is always his go-to gift idea. Quotes just have a way of simplifying every single emotion I am feeling, without me having to explain every single detail running through my mind.
  • I enjoy doing crafts and learning activities with my children as I believe education and imagination both begin at home and are fundamental to being a well-rounded individual.

By no means am I a perfect mom. I fall right smack dab in the middle of the hot mess express category. ? I try to find the humor in everything and honestly, I am just winging life, motherhood, and everything else in between.
