About me

Follow me on Facebook for updates, https://www.facebook.com/thehonestpirate/

Just an average mum, with lot to say,  A few friends suggested I start a blog so here we are.

I have 2 perfect children, Ella and Reece.IMG_20180410_102159_819

My daughter Ella was born in 2011, and quickly diagnosed with a rare genetic syndrome called cri du chat. (Don’t worry, no one else has heard of it either either! 😂)

I started the blog to share some insights into a condition and situation that not many people have much knowledge, and raise awareness for my daughters condition. Plus now she’s at school I have some time!

My posts will probably be about

-The life of a special needs parent.
-more recently, navigating a typical child, after only ever knowing a complex one.
-My daughters condition and her day today
-hopefully some funny stories and stuff lol

I think it may start out kinda dark, as I write about some of the toughest times in my life, but trust me when I say there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I am new to this whole blog writing thing so bare with me!  I’m putting it out there, poop stories and all.


To kick it off, a raw unedited, no makeup photo of my morning frazzle
