I love baking with the girls. I think it’s a really useful skill for them and I’d like to think I am improving on my kitchen skills.

Siblings 2016 – December – Looking Back On The Year

I was really proud of myself in 2015 for completing a full year of the Siblings Project.

Playbrush Toothbrush Review

As a child, I used to hate brushing my teeth. It was the one part of the day that was pretty tiresome and boring.

Special Needs Diary #10 – An Update

So firstly I am changing the format of this series of blog posts slightly. I’ve changed the name from Autism Diaries to Special Needs Diary. This is purely because we don’t have an official diagnosis and with recent medical appointments and conversations, it just doesn’t feel right to give P1 a definite label yet. However, she definitely is a special …

Sleep Deprivation Is Actual Torture

I was teased whilst we were in America. I experienced five days of what my life probably should be like by now. I put the girls to bed and didn’t hear from them until morning. In other words I had four full nights of sleep. I don’t think I really got to feel the benefits though as jet lag kicked …
