It is almost unheard of nowadays to have help raising your children. Two friends of mine are lucky to have very involved aunts, cousins and grandparents to help carpools, field trips, cook meals and babysit for no charge. TWO! The more common description is how we are rushing one child to soccer practice, the other to dance, figuring out dinner, and trying so hard to get lunches packed the night before. It's exhausting! Friends, its just a season - hang in there - soon the eldest will be driving and gladly helping get groceries and carpool!
This is what W.I.N. was born from. We love children, we have children of our own, and we know the importance of self-care - - so we offer helping opportunities to our community!

No parent NEEDS support and nurturing like a parent who has a kiddo with differences. SPD MeetUP offers a weekly SPD ONLY kiddos to gather and not be not like the others without sensory processing differences! Here, they can jump too high, talk too fast, use too much glue, paint too big, and eliminate the personal bubble (within reason) for one hour! We all know our kiddos don't mean to seek input in a disruptive way - they are just using the tools they know. Opportunities for Professional speakers, education and TONS of support will be here for you! Tuesdays 4 - 5pm, $5-$15 suggested donation.
