Hello and Welcome! I’m so happy you are here.

You have found my ABOUT ME page! If you ended up here by accident, you can click any of the categories above to be taken elsewhere on the blog. Happy Being Mom is all about raising kids who face special challenges, whether those are learning differences, birth defects or physical disabilities to name a few. It’s also about the Mamas who work hard to parent them.

I’m Sandy and I’m mama to two young adult kids; wife to a Licensed Psychologist and fur-mom to two kitties.

Happy Being Mom is created with you in mind, Mama. The Mama who runs late to IEP meetings, who has pulled her hair out while trying to calm a crying child late into the night while working on a math concept or reading skill. The mama who went through a crazy amount of stress (or maybe still does) because of birth differences or mental health concerns with your child.

You are in good company here. I’ve done all of those things and more. My hope is that you’ll give yourself one minute to sit back, take a deep breath, regain your composure and grab some encouragement to face the road ahead.

We all want to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Not perfect. That doesn’t exist. Just better Mamas than we were yesterday. And we can, too. Here we can help and encourage each other.

Feel free to contact me if there is something you’d like to see on the blog or if you have any questions.
