The Princess and The Prosthetic

My Voice

February 28, 2019 in Motherhood - No Comments

When Callie was born and it was apparent that she was going to have different needs, I felt this enormous responsibility to be her voice. 
To figure out why this warrior was sent to us. 
To advocate for her. 
Then to make sure we were living up to that full potential….whatever that may be. 
If I’m totally honest, its sometimes not clear. 
Like how do we talk about this? 
Who do we talk to? Who are we supposed to help? 
How much do we share? 
So it doesn’t sound like we feel sorry for ourselves or are complaining? 
How do we find a balance where this isn’t the only thing we talk about? Or should it be? Is it ok if I talk about funny things she says? Or cute outfits we wear? Is that ok even though I feel like our family has this much bigger message to share? 
Unfortunately, there’s not really a blue print for this….I’m really just kinda figuring out what it means to be in this role as a special needs mama to a warrior princess. So thank you for letting me tell our story and letting us figure it out together. Your acceptance, support, and love mean the world to us.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
