You didn’t glance back?

Dearest Bam, I know you didn’t glance back today after I kissed you goodbye. Why would you? You were full to the brim with excitement for your residential trip with the school. Chatting to your mates about Pokémon cards and which activities you were going to do. I heard you say ‘I’m going to do everything!’Continue reading “You didn’t glance back?”

Family on tour

It’s the Easter holidays, time for a mini break with the darling children. The sun is shining, we pack up the car and head down to the lovely county of Devon. Kids have electronic devices to entertain them on our journey. All goes pretty smoothly, apart from the frequent occurrence of bottom odour from oneContinue reading “Family on tour”

TV documentary on ADHD

As soon as I found out that there was going to be a documentary on ADHD with Rory Bremner, I couldn’t wait to see it. I’m always keen to learn more about the condition, hoping to hear a nugget of information that may help my Bam. I’m pleased to say the documentary most definitely didn’tContinue reading “TV documentary on ADHD”

Bam’s got talent!

Bam bounces out of school full of enthusiasm and excitement (yes, even more than usual!). The reason for his enthusiasm? He’s going to enter the school talent contest. ‘I need you to print off some jokes from the internet, I’m going to perform a comedy act’ Eek, it’s really hard to make people laugh, aContinue reading “Bam’s got talent!”

When your child is diagnosed with epilepsy.

At the point of diagnosis Bam was having about 10 seizures a day. He would suddenly lose consciousness and fall to the floor. We would then have that agonising few second wait (which felt like much longer) for Bam to come back to us. It’s really scary seeing your child unconscious, not knowing how longContinue reading “When your child is diagnosed with epilepsy.”

Christmas: from a Mum’s perspective

At the end of November my family gave to me…a few days of internet searching for Black Friday deals for thee! At the beginning of December my family gave to me….A few evenings of card writing glee! On the 2nd week of December my family gave to me…A minor panic as I realised the ChristmasContinue reading “Christmas: from a Mum’s perspective”

Life in the fast lane…

I’ve been reflecting recently on the family life that Mops, my youngest boy, is part of. Life is very chaotic, loud and active. For him life has always been like that so I wonder if he actually realises his life might be ever so slightly different to his friends in the classroom? He knows all aboutContinue reading “Life in the fast lane…”

Christmas comes early!

Christmas causes excitement in every house. In our house, it means Bam’s ADHD is heightened. He has even more energy and is extra, extra bouncy! So I know I need to be prepared. Do I really need to prepare for it in October though? Sadly, it would appear that I do! Following a family strollContinue reading “Christmas comes early!”

A night on a tiny island!

I’m not really a camper. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love being outdoors but I like to go home to my bed in the evening. I have only been camping once as a girl guide. This experience ended with me waking up in the morning to find myself outside the tent in the middleContinue reading “A night on a tiny island!”
