  • A Happy Birthday?

    Given the family events going on recently, you would have thought I’d have blogged but the truth is that I really didn’t want to.

  • Finding me…

    It can be a funny life, having a mix of typical children and a not so typical child, one that has highs higher than I’ve ever experienced and lows so low that you think you might drown at any second. We all know how easy it is to lose yourself when raising children, often putting […]

The year has gone quickly, with many things unchanged. Jack still can’t read. He doesn’t know his alphabet, he can’t recognise most letters. His number recognition is […]

  • Reflection…

    Following on from talking about Jack’s progress this past year, I was drawn to think about my own. Jack’s journey has sent me on one of my own, one I never thought I’d take. I didn’t give people living with disabilities and their families much thought bar the few thoughts about ramp access to buildings. […]

  • Tonsillectomy…

    Well, it’s been a long 10 days (and counting!) since Jack’s tonsillectomy. I think I have cabin fever, even though we ventured out for a few hours last Thursday (which turned out to be a mistake in the end!) Jack was on the waiting list for his tonsillectomy for just over a year, even though […]
