We Too, I 21 "Mrs Madhouse was introduced to me, virtually through another amazing parent, Brenda Reid and I have followed her writing ever since. I love the humourand honesty she brings to her writing and openly admits saying in her house... " can you please not argue with me when I am pooping?" I was blown away that when I asked if she would write for We Too! she eagerly accepted - although to date, we still haven't met in real life, I look forward to the time we can get a coffee together."

Homeschooling - the terror! Actually we might just be ok, I don't know yet but I've explained in this blog piece what I have done to prepare and my thinking behind those preparations. I have zero experience and I am definitely not an expert in anything besides my kids needs.

Back to school time again and that means new stuff. New stuff means name labels - unless you are happy to throw money away and buy more new stuff because even though your little darling cried and whined in the shop because they NEEDED a very specific water bottle in a certain colour with a straw and a button to press to make it open as if by magic (making it 3 times the price), you better believe they still won’t be able to pick out that very special magical and necessary bottle in a line up...

The decision to send our disabled daughter to a main stream school was not taken lightly. We discussed the pros and cons of options for a long time before finally taking the plunge and sending her to mainstream school. We hoped that the social side of school would enrich her life and encourage her development. We were terrified she would feel different but more than that we were terrified she would at some point be picked on or experience bullying.

PHEW! Kids in bed. What a week, we went out as an entire family not once but TWICE this weekend and I would actually like the world to congratulate Boris and I on that. I have to talk a bit about how proud I am of my beautiful girl. Thursday was her School Christmas Show, she was a dancing star along with many of her classmates. The school performed, 'The magical Christmas jigsaw'. As Allissa gets older her awareness, understanding and therefor her anxiety seems to have increased so she...

I had thought about sharing Allissa's story for a while since I started blogging. Its very personal but one I am always happy to tell anyone who asks, I do tell it in a very quick and removed way though. People are usually interested to hear what happened but often worried about asking questions. Part of my motivation to share her story was also that it might make some new parents going through a similar issue feel that there is always hope and nothing is ever set in stone when it comes to...

Hi everyone, my name is Jane (one of Linda Jo's best chums.) I wanted to share a story with you,that I could never put on my personal Facebook page, but I feel its worthy of its place. I hear a lot of people say that Facebook and Instagram are terrible for portraying "the Perfect" life in the pictures that people post. Linda-Jo puts herself out there warts and all so I am going to share my "Perfect life" photo in this safe place. I want to tell you the REAL story behind these sweet. relaxed...
