This Organized Life

Sep 30 2021 • 56 mins


Hi Friends,

Before we get into today’s episode, will you please take a moment to fill out our short listener survey?

Today I am joined by Amanda Cunningham, founder of The Glory Days Co., a company that provides organizational tools for parents and caregivers of special needs children.

Amanda shares her story of giving birth to her beautiful daughter Aurora “Rory” and finding out upon her arrival that she had Down Syndrome.

She walks us through the early months following Rory’s birth and speaks candidly about how she struggled with feelings of overwhelm. From attending weekly doctors and therapy appointments, to wading through the unexpected newness of becoming a stay-at-home mom.

When looking for tools to support her in this new role as a special needs parent, she couldn’t find anything that encompassed everything Rory needed. So Amanda created her own planner filled with checklists, calendar, daily tasks and a robust notes section to document the countless appointments and therapies required to help Rory thrive, and now helps parents everywhere do the same.

During our conversation we talk about:

Her unexpected transition to stay-at-home caregiver from working professional

The role that both physical and calendar organizers play in raising a child with special needs

The importance of routines to help everyone to flourish
