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”

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!”

Mother’s bond with her children

I don’t think there’s anything stonger than the bond between a mother and her children. I know my boys inside out. I know what they like to do, what they like to eat and what makes them happy and sad (well most of the time anyway!) I know it won’t always be this way andContinue reading “Mother’s bond with her children”

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.”

Juggling act

I’m no circus performer but any parent will be an expert at juggling. Raising kids, running a house, working, a social life and ‘me’ time. Oh and then there’s the washing, this is actually a part time job in itself – where on earth does it all come from?! Unfortunately planning a social life andContinue reading “Juggling act”

Christmas: from a Mum’s perspective

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”

Change of heart

Recently Bam made a big decision…he decided to tell his class about his epilepsy. Previously he was adamant that he didn’t want his friends to know, he didn’t want people to think he was different. (see earlier blog post) So why the change of heart? I think it was down to our attendance at the YoungContinue reading “Change of heart”

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!”
