Parenthood can be a lonely place sometimes, we find ourselves socializing with our kids friends, but are they YOUR friend? The competition of parties and who throws the best play date can be daunting sometimes. Pour some wine while we whine about it! Dealing with the other moms at the park and other social situations. Summer is here and there is only sooo much moondough we can make before we have a mommy meltdown and need to be around our mommy peers without tears.
Let's get real and down to business, up in your business, lets face it we all work hard raising our kids!
Tonight is all about socializing our special needs kids! Squag is a new application designed specifically for tweens and teens on the autism spectrum.

This is our first show of Practical Magical Living for Families of Today
In this, and upcoming shows, we will be discussing. . .
How our conscious awakening journey fits in with conscious parenting How to live our dreams, grow, and evolve -- when meals, laundry, music lessons, sports, and playdates are part of our everyday lives How to focus on ourselves when we also choose to be present parents and conscious partners
We believe that integration of these aspects is embodied enlightenment.

Tessa was a busy Mom, carpooling the kids, getting lunches packed, making playdates. She loved her family, she loved her children, she loved being a Mom but . . .
She wanted to do something with her creativity and began writing wonderful short stories, many based in England, where she lived as a child. The stories gave her a quick, structured, escape from the busy, hectic, demanding life as a Mother. Soon she had a series of stories, with wonderful characters women could relate to - in settings away from her dirty dishes, laundry and runny noses.
Tessa wanted to share her writing with others, needing a quick, 10 minutes break.
She saw a trend in how publishing and technology are colliding with the popularity of iPhones, iPads, Androids and Kindles.
Tessa founded eChook Digital Publishing's short story apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Kindle. She designed an App and created a world for other people to read her short story collection: LONDON ROAD.
Then she noticed everyone is posting their business and information on Facebook and other social media –– biographies. She asked writer friends to help create 10 minute Memoirs – which they did and that created eChook’s next app, Memoir Volume 1 just released this year.
Realizing she could not be the only hardworking person out there with little time but inspired to write – she now has an on-going call for submissions: work on her websitehttp://echook.com/category/blog/submissions/
Raising a child with a disability or chronic medical condition that requires frequent hospitalizations can be daunting and exhausting.
