About Our Family

My name is Missy.  I am a 33 year old Mum 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 special 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 14 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 just started preparing for her GCSE exams with her favourite subjects being art and media, which she is very good at!
She is also ever so slightly 'obsessed' with 5 Seconds Of Summer.

Boo is 12 years old and has Chromosome 1q21.1 Duplication Syndrome and ASD.  This has caused him to have significant learning difficulties, short term memory problems and an eating disorder/food phobia, etc.  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 9 years old and is a real character! Very cheeky, but makes me smile (and tear my hair out) every day.  Being a real 'girly' girl, she loves anything pink and sparkly, but 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.  She will be taking part in the production of Annie at our local theatre in February 2017.

Little Man is a very active 5 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 the space.  

Squidge (previously known as Minnie) is a cheeky little 4 year old who is full of character and on a constant (messy) journey of discovery and learning. She has recently started having seizures, and absent episodes and is undergoing various medical tests to try and find out what is causing them.

Bubba is an adventurous 3 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.  Recently he started part time nursery school and seems to be really enjoying his time there.

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