About Our Family

My name is Missy.  I am a 36-year-old mother of 6 and the author of this blog. Through writing this blog I am hoping to share my experiences with others, being as honest as possible, as I deal with normal day to day family life as well as raising a child with additional needs and trying to get him the help/support he requires.  

Daddy D is my husband and best friend. He works a ridiculous amount of hours to support our family. He is very 'hands on' when it comes to helping at home with the children (and the housework) and we would be lost without him.

CJ is 17 years old and loves anything creative.  She is teaching herself to play the electric bass guitar and acoustic guitar and is making brilliant progress. 
She has recently started college and is extremely focused on her studies. University applications are being completed as we speak!

Boo is 15 years old and has Chromosome 1q21.1 Duplication and ASD.  This has caused him to have significant learning difficulties, short-term memory problems, an eating disorder/food phobia, and many other things.  Despite all of this he is a very loving young man who enjoys playing on the computer and Xbox... especially games that are creative such as Minecraft.

Roo is 12 years old and slime obsessed! She is also very creative and loves art, crafts and colouring in. She loves taking part in drama/acting and seems to have a real flair for it.

Little Man is a very active 8-year-old. He is an extremely intelligent, very cheeky little boy who loves to dress up and have fun.  He enjoys reading books and watching educational YouTube videos, especially if they are about space.  When he grows up he wants to work for NASA!

Squidge (previously known as Minnie) is my 7 year old tom-boy who is full of character and on a constant (messy) journey of discovery and learning. She is extremely active and her favourite activity is playing football.

Bubba is an adventurous 6-year-old. He is a gorgeous little boy who is full of smiles and loves cuddles. He enjoys playing with anything messy and loves listening (and dancing) to music.  He climbs on everything and is always getting into mischief.  

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
I hope you enjoy sharing our experiences as a family.
