Hello! And welcome to our little corner in the blogging world.
We are a humble little family of three, plus one energetic dog and one downright malevolent cat, living on the east coast of Ireland. Our son, henceforth known as R, has been diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) and CP (Cerebral Palsy). R is four years old and probably the funniest, most loveable little guy you’ll ever meet. He has plenty of personality and currently loves (and by loves, I mean lives and breathes) windshield wipers, Peppa Pig and Volkwagen Golfs. In no particular order. He enjoys bubble baths, muddy puddles and indepth vehicle tours on YouTube. Never a dull moment in our house, I can assure you!
I created this blog to share our journey with R, and hopefully shed a light on what it is like to live and love a child with complex needs. We strive for happiness, not perfection. Smiles, not scores. We love R for who he is, not what he has. We homeschool. We play a lot. We cry a lot, but we laugh more. We laugh more as we realise that life is much more than therapy appointments, missed milestones and shoulda, woulda couldas.
