Harlem Globetrotters 2024 World Tour Review

My son had a great time with his dad and a friend and her dad at the Harlem Globetrotters World Tour 2024 show. It is not only a basketball game geared towards kids but it has loads of trick shots and a highly entertaining performance aspect as well.

The kids especially liked how the performers interacted with the crowd and kept everyone engaged amd laughing out loud throughout the entire show.

One if the players even had a microphone on him the entire time to narrate the event. Plus there was a lot of music, lights, and action that made it so much fun.

The kids even got to go up on the court during the half time which was really cool and exciting for them.

I would absolutely recommend buying tickets and checking out the show and they are touring in the US and all over the world! 

Even the kids that aren't into sports enjoyed the entertainment and had a great time. You have to see this show at least once in your lifetime. It is totally worth it for the whole family!

Vegan Easter Chocolate Bunny and Chocolates for Easter Egg Hunts

I've been doing a vegan Easter Basket and egg hunt for the kids for 10 years now! I always find some chocolates and things to put in plastic eggs so they don't miss out andnit has gotten easier and easier each year!

Here's what is they are getting this year:

We find that they love this chocolate and this bunny is on the smaller side so it is just the right size to not overdo it with the sweets. 

These are the vegan version of the Cadbury Cream eggs with the same yummy No Whey vegan chocolate.

This is No Whey's vegan version and also nut free version of the Reese's peanut butter eggs. Same yummy chocolate with a sunflower seed butter filing.

Not all Unreal chocolates are vegan but this convenient variety pack is! It is a one stop Easter candy shop! And YES I have tried them all and they are ALL good!

These arena darker chocolate version of the little Peanut Butter Cups wrapped in foil. A perfect size for Easter Eggs. Warning - is hard to eat just one and you probably want to make sure there is an extra bag in the house for the adults to enjoy too!

Lindt chocolate also makes oatmilk chocolates now and these Truffles are delicious and the perfect size to fit inside those Easter eggs!

You can also get them directly from the Lindt website or with the Amazon link above.

Hope you all enjoy your Easter with no animals harmed and make sure that you enjoy your time as a family sharing the love this holiday as always!

I had a lot a fun making veggie platters for the kids playgroup parties and family gatherings when the kids were just babies and toddlers and my friends were all stay at home / part time worker moms / work at home moms. This blog was my work so I always felt like I could spend the extra time and money making these veggie platters and it was a win win because I could share it with all of you! 

Since it has been a while, I thought this would be a good time to come back to it and bring my entire collection together of  is my cute easter veggie platters that I made over the years with links to all of posts and instructions to make them! I made a bunny veggie platter, a chick, and even challenged myself to make a lamb. Check them all out :)

4 Steps for Supporting Children With Sensory Processing Disorder

One of the most common signs of autism spectrum disorders is sensory processing disorder. People with this condition have trouble reacting to stimuli in standard ways and may struggle in environments that are overly loud or crowded. If your children have been diagnosed with sensory processing issues related to autism, take the following steps to support their wellbeing and development.

1. Understand Their Progress

You need to monitor your children's sensory processing development so that you know when they're nearing overload. Signs of overload include crying, shaking, having problems focusing, and displaying irritability. These reactions are all ways of exhibiting that your children need to find a safe space, but you don't want to wait until this point to remove the harmful stimulus. Instead, use a diagnostic tool such as the SPM-2 to assess your children's sensory processing benchmarks. The tool gives you advice on how to handle the moments when you lose track of your children's mental health and suggestions about your occupational therapy options.

2. Work With Professionals

Taking the responsibility of your children's emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing onto yourself alone is too much for you. Thankfully, there are many professionals waiting to help you. Talk to your primary care provider about autism spectrum disorder specialists who your insurance company covers. Work with guidance counselors and the special education department at your children's school to make the best educational plan for them. By including these experts in your efforts to support your children's sensory processing needs, you reduce the chances that they will reach overload.

3. Skip Experiences That Trigger Sensory Overload

Some people with sensory processing disorder engage in exposure therapy, reaching new SPM-2 benchmarks as they become accustomed to previously triggering stimuli. Regardless of whether your children are in exposure therapy, avoid taking them to places that you know overwhelm them. For example, if one child has trouble with loud noises, taking him or her to a basketball game or concert is a bad idea. If another becomes overwhelmed by flashing lights, the movie theater is not the best place to spend your Friday night. Unless your pediatrician or therapist suggests otherwise, choose family experiences that are easily enjoyed by everyone.

4. Avoid Value Judgments

People with conditions such as autism spectrum disorders have long faced discrimination, harassment, and prejudice. Thanks to legislation such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004, attitudes towards people with special needs are improving. However, as you track your children's progress, you must be careful to avoid reverting to value judgments about your children or allowing other people to make value-related comments. For example, you should celebrate your children's accomplishments, but you should not see meltdowns or signs of sensory overload as a failure. Demonstrate your love and support to your children, regardless of how well their occupational therapy is progressing.

Caring for children with sensory processing and autism spectrum disorders can be challenging. Keep these four tips in mind to maximize your resources, minimize burnout, and prioritize your children.
