Thank you for stopping by! I created my “SlowlyandSteady” blog as a place to share my motherhood journey experience living with an autoimmune disease.  I would like to connect with other families who might find themselves parenting while struggling with a chronic illness but are enthusiastically motivated to create memories with their kids.  Going through our daily life’s ups and downs can sometimes challenge our ability to be creative and fun parents for our children. With help, taking each day slowly, but moving steadily has allowed me to create tons of memories and enjoy motherhood at my pace.  Chronic fatigue or discomfort had frequently pushed me away from looking or thinking about ideas. I am hoping to use this space to compile and share everything that I have learned from others and that has made my life easier during my journey as a single parent with an illness. I hope to include topics that have made an impact in my life by sharing products, recipes and of course activities I have enjoyed the most with my son.
