Overnight oats are a super trendy thing in the food world. They are easy to whip up, convenient when you need to grab and go and are overall quite fantastic. But here’s the thing about my overnight oats; I only make the base mixture and don’t add my toppings to my mason jars, before putting them in the fridge.

Today’s video is short, but important. Siblings of autism. It’s something I don’t personally, from a first person point of view, understand. But I am trying SO hard to make sure all four of my babies know that I love them, am here for them and would do absolutely anything for them. My second born is still struggling with feelings of resentment and jealousy towards her autistic, five year old, Nonverbal brother. It kills me. And I’m hoping she just needs more time. And that she knows just how much I love her….

Will this in home ABA therapy room EVER be revealed?! Yes, it will…NEXT WEEK. Y’all, everything takes forever these days. I’m pretty sure I won’t get my shit together until Arlo is 10 and Hunter is 6 😂. It’s just how it is. Ya win some battles and lose others. It’s cool.
