And just like that, he is 18

Posted on by

I’ve been quite emotional about this, I can’t lie.  It is SO true that time flies, whether it’s good or bad you can’t slow it down and yes,  hindsight is a wonderful thing.  My first born, first love, turns 18years old. So, as a note to me and maybe him, (he may read it one day), I was going to write 18 things about O…..


But decided that maybe wasn’t enough.  I could also go on about autism, diagnosis, milestones, my mistakes, how big and wide your feet are, how handsome you are, your isms, obsessions, our ups and downs, staying true to yourself, your kind soul, how hard mothering can be, what I have learned.  But the crux of story that is you so far is…

…..I’m proud of you
and you’re pretty awesome.

Happy birthday O, I love you x


first words

Posted on by


At the weekend the lil’ bean said his first words.  Not mummy or daddy, but ‘row, row, row’.  He has recently become fond of the nursery rhyme ‘row your boat’, and loves rocking back and forth to it repeatedly.  But on Sunday morning when we came to the end of the rhyme and stopped, he piped up with ‘row, row, row’, or sometimes sounds like ‘woe, woe, woe’.  Totally adorable to hear your babies first words, or be there for the first anything.  It’s the best, heart-melting feeling in the world.
