Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. Yoga Instructor said goodbye to her nightly glass of Chardonnay to give up habits that were not serving her purpose in life! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


A mother's wish.

I wish you a wonderful start...
I wish for a room full of friends who work hard to understand you and accept your differences.
I wish for patient adults who think outside of the box when teaching kids who don't fit into the standardize-testing-box.
I wish for safety.
I wish for compassion.
I wish more people were as caring as you.

I would never wish for anything different.

I wish for people to see you as I do.

I wish for teachers who look beyond the label.

I wish they would see the good not look only for the bad.

I wish they would realise it is a life they are playing with, and a future they are influencing.

I wish to be there when they see what an amazing adult you become.

I wish it to change their behaviour towards all special kids, because ALL kids ARE special!
