Sale on Weighted Blankets!

This is not so much a blog post as it is a plug for a sale going on at my Etsy shop called Three High Chairs.  As mentioned in my previous posts, my son Liam has Sensory Processing Disorder and last month I decided to open my own shop on Etsy called Three High Chairs where I offer affordable weighted blankets and lap pads proven to help children and adults suffering from sensory processing disorder, autism/ASD, ADHD, restless leg syndrome or those who like extra pressure or a heavy blanket to calm down or fall asleep.

October is Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness month and as a result, I am offering a 5% discount on Toddler blankets by entering code 5OCTSPD at checkout and a 10% discount on Twin weighted blankets by entering code 10OCTSPD

My etsy shop can be found at www.etsy.com/shop/threehighchairs
Almost all of my blankets are custom made where the seller chooses the fabric and the weight and I make the blanket.

Come check us out!

Scrub a Dub Dub Three Boys in a Tub

Over these past four years I feel like bath time has always been a challenge.  When the boys were babies it was hard because we bathed them in the sink x 3 which meant we had to fill the tub with warm water three times and resulted in bath time taking close to an hour.  As the boys got older it got complicated depending on how many sets of hands were home to help.  If my husband was home we could bathe them together and it could be relatively quick, but if it was a solo job I had to take them to the tub one at a time and I was back to it taking close to an hour.  Once my son's (Liam) sensory issues began around the age of 2 we always had to worry about temperature and screaming.  Sometimes he loved the bath and it was fine, sometimes he hated the bath and he screamed through the whole thing.  We never knew which one we were going to get and we still don't.

This past year as my boys navigated the age of 3 and are in the independent age of 4 just getting them to go the bathroom to take a bath has been a challenge.   Recently, while I was at the grocery store I discovered these bath pellets made by Crayola where you can change the bath water different colors. The container comes with red, blue and yellow so that you can make any color you want.  Now when it is a bath night we just ask what color they want their bath and they get so excited to see their chosen color and figure out what pellets to mix to make new colors!
