Stickman Review

Today we were given * tickets to go and review stickman at New Theatre Cardiff. I'd checked with the school to see if I could collect him and drop him back off and it was fine. So off we went for a little birthday treat! He knew where we were going as he was so...

Turning 6

Today you turn 6. For the first time ever you'll be closer to 10 than birth. 6, let that sink in for a while 6. I remember 6 years ago I was worried because they were bringing you into the world early, you made a quick screaming entrance and from that moment you...

The toddler stage!

I remember back when Z was around one, him and Iz were two days apart, she was doing so much more than Z, from pointing to talking. Z didn't point and certainly didn't talk. At the time I said I was eagerly awaiting the toddler stage, the one that they chatted away...

October, Baby loss and miscarriage awareness month.

So October is baby loss and miscarriage awareness month.  Where people light candles and share posts on social media. I know I did without knowing how hard being that 1 in 4 is.  Z who up until May, I wasn’t 100% certain but you can’t go through a confirmed...

Hopes and dreams

In a few weeks you'll be six. This time six years ago I had dreams and expectations one big one was going to express and you were going to be breastfed. This time five years ago you were signed up to school. This time four years ago I was still expecting you to do...

Rainman

I was invited * last night to see Rainman at New Theatre Cardiff.  When Z was diagnosed a few people told me he’ll be like rainman, this didn’t make any sense because of course I’ve never seen the film! All I knew was a man found out he had a autistic brother. The...

I can read !

There's many videos over on my Facebook page showing Z reading. These have normally been one word at a time. During the holidays Z went with a friend, he broke her tortoise ornament in the garden alongside her dragon! When we got home I wrote an apology and he read...

Week one complete!

Week one of school complete! Ok yes I know we only done two days but week one is still over. Hopefully as it's a long term Z will settle, Wednesday evening he had heard us mention school I think and was up last night he was crying at 12, still in his bed, I saw 1,2...

First day at school

Today you head into what would be year one. I see pictures of excited children walking into school with their friends and for a brief second the 'you are different' moment hits. It's not for long, you go back to a place you love, you have your friends in your own...

Can it not be the end of the summer please!

Back in July I set a little challenge this summer holidays I wanted to achieve things, go places, have laughs and make memories. A few months back I didn’t know what I’d be able to do or not do, when I knew we could do anything I wanted I made my My six weeks...

A letter to Z’s teacher 2018

The last official day of the school holidays. Next week Z returns to school. He'll return to a new teacher. Its getting easier each year for me! I think Z just goes with the flow. Of course I always worry, new class new teacher and a child that can't tell me how his...

West Midlands Safari Park

We'd never been here before so decided to give it ago, I was a little gutted after I'd booked to find that I could have used my Tesco clubcard vouchers ! Off we set with not knowing what to expect after our 4am wake up.. I just just knew there were animals and rides....
