Now that my girls are older I’ve had to be more careful about what I post because I want to always respect their privacy. Even if it’s a funny story but MAY be embarrassing I always ask if I can post it for friends to see before I do it. So, with Rory’s permission I’m posting this. I don’t talk too terribly much about her ADHD and sensory disorder anymore because she’s older and it isn’t my story to tell. However, what IS my story is about my decision to medicate Rory to help with her ADHD. It was one of THE hardest decisions I’ve had to make as a parent, if not the hardest. Especially because I had a lot of pushback and negative comments on the matter. Thankfully, I was wise enough to trust my motherly instinct that God gives and put her on medication and got her into therapies. Yesterday we forgot to give the medicine in the morning. For the first time all year she got in trouble ... and numerous times. Her precious teachers came and told me she wasn’t herself and I realized it was forgotten. Last night I pulled her papers from her folder and I sat and cried my eyes out- from heartbreak, relief, and most of all peace. Rory is reaching her amazing high potential and is such a hard worker every day. Without one dose of her medicine the difference is outstanding. So parents, please don’t ever be ashamed to get help in any way that is best for your child. I have so many regrets and so much grief on how I “handled” Rory before I got her help and now I can say the thing I am most proud of as a mom is making this tough decision and advocating for my girl. Even when people weren’t happy about it. Even when people sent me via mail clippings of articles that said ADHD was a cop out for lazy parents who wouldn’t discipline their children (yep, that really happened) and that ADHD wasn’t a real thing. Parents of these “different” kids, I’m always here for you to listen, give advice, and pray with you. It’s a hard journey but worth every bit of the fight if it means the night and day difference. (Spelling test picture is normal work- next pictures are her work without one dose of medicine- the difference is INSANE.)

We were driving around “looking” at houses and I saw this little spot and made Andy pull over to take pictures (he was real please, of course). I love East TN in the fall- I’ll never stop loving this beautiful town of Cleveland and all the amazing friendships God has given the girls and I here. 😍 #visitcleveland #easttn #fall #ohryder #notahugger #momlife

Listen, don’t pray for God to send you a word if you don’t want to be convicted. I️ have had a harsh tongue all week and had to ask serious forgiveness today for it. I️ haven’t had a week of shining my light. I’ve been so caught up in my stupid insignificant world of pettiness this week and this verse has humbled me to the core. We never know if we have another day... or another minute for that matter. We have to make the best of it. We have to be positive and find the good in all situations so that we can show others the grace and love of God. It’s stinkin’ hard when you are in the darkest valley, but there is always some good if we search hard enough. #bethelight #bethegood #fightagainstdarkness

Y’all. Today has been something else.
Can’t find Rory’s homework folder. Can’t find Ryder’s homework. But they made it to school so alright.
Go to the store after school and I decide the girls can go to the bathroom without me because I’m right close to the front and they are together so what could go wrong??
Well. Next thing I know I hear, “TIFFANY HARRIS YOUR PARTY IS WAITING FOR YOU AT GUEST SERVICES”.... y’all they said my name FOUR times over the intercom. SO EMBARRASSED. Ryder had done left Rory in the bathroom and seeing as she’s directionally challenged she panicked and told the lady “my mom has lost me”.🤦🏻‍♀️
Then I am loading the car and look over to see the picture I posted... she’s just rolling deodorant all over her armpits right there in the parking lot.
And then I show up to basketball 30 minutes late because I clearly CANNOT GET MY LIFE TOGETHER.

Exciting night at the Harris house! Rory’s just mad she didn’t kill it! Please promise me you’ll ask the girls the story of how Andy killed this deer when you see them. It is hysterical and they LOVE telling it already- it “craps” them up as they say! 🙈😅😂 #rorygoesto2nd #rydergoesto1st #crazysurroundsme #whydontwehavearealityshow

To say the past few days have been some of the hardest in my life would be an extreme understatement. Maybe one day I’ll be able to share everything that happened but right now all I can say is that having to put these three precious children in the car to go to a new home was THE HARDEST THING I’ve done. And I feel like such a failure and have the most extreme guilt that it happened. But these kids will now get the home they desperately needed and we will all move forward with our heart a little less whole because we loved them so fiercely already. Being a mom is sometimes the worst because you love too hard and you have to make all the hard decisions for ALL of your kids, bio or not.

Couldn’t let the day pass without saying “happy birthday!” to my sister, Telena! She’s my kids favorite person to FaceTime and get makeovers with. She’s so strong, a care taker, a force to be reckoned with, and is such a light to the world! Thankful she’s my sister. Love you, Telena! Hope your day was as amazing as you! 🎉

We came home from school, spent the entire afternoon/evening outside, got our pjs on and the girls came up with an elaborate play and took an epic bow. It was the best Friday night ever after a crazy week. #takeabow #sisters
