So, what have we learnt here?!

There's a long list of life lessons my children have taught me....feel free to add to my list!


If a kid is gonna go pee-pee on the floor, sticking a potty under the stream won't work...he's just gonna turn around leaving a spray as he moves!

Eating left overs because the kids don't eat their food will add 10lbs..every time!

The best way to dance is to rock side to side!

You don't need words all the time..silence can be beautiful...

If you want something take people by the hand to help you!

Putting your clothes on can be a big game!

Being held is a lovely feeling...

Babble like no one is listening...

A film story is a wonderful place to lose yourself..

The world is scary but by gosh it's fascinating..

Laugh, for absolutely no reason!

Don't take yourself to seriously..

If old dreams won't work, create new ones..

Success can be small steps or big leaps, they are both worthy of great praise..

Your kids will cope just fine while you have a break

There's nothing more fascinating than the movement of your hand!

Innocence makes for a blissful life

Be angry then move on...

Never, ever miss a single thing...

Praise like you mean it...

Opportunities for connection can happen anytime..even at 3am!

If you work hard you will be rewarded...

You'd be amazed what you can digest!

Anything can turn into a toy!

Tune into your senses for a brand new view of life!

You're never to old, or too young to learn something new..

Patience is not a virtue, it's THE virtue!

You're gonna get bored along time before they do!

If you value it, shift it!

You can cope with more than you think you can...

Happiness is a never ending circle..happy kid, happy mom, happy kid..

What you don't know cant hurt you...

Just because you're the only one doing it, it's still "an activity"!


Sometimes the safest place to be is inside yourself..


Toy story IS a great film..

Just because they don't do it doesn't mean they don't understand it..

Kids learn swear words faster than any other word in the dictionary!

Echolia means they will echo ANYTHING to EVERYONE!

There is no ledge too high for those who live dangerously...

Not everyone will "get you" but that's ok...

What you see isnt necessarily what you get...

Theres nothing cuter than a little lad singing "bad to the bone"!

Appreciate everything..

They'll turn their nose up at everything but no one can resist chip shop chips!

You can't really control anything but your own emotions...

Even with autistic kids..there's still a difference between a tantrum and a meltdown!

If you call it a piss...he's gonna call it a piss...

Take the opportunity to quietly watch them when they don't know it...

Don't let the can'ts hide the cans!

Your kids don't know what life expects of them, they only know what you teach them.

A mess can be swept up, wiped down, washed away, painted over, covered up..that precise moment can never be repeated...

Its best to have big expectations in small situations and small expectations in big situations..

Seize not the day but the moment...

My kids love me x

This is a particularly brilliant entry, every word of it means everything to us after the past few weeks, i tried to pick out my favourites but i couldnt.

I thought of one more......NO is a lovely word when your non verbal child uses it absolutely in context.....even a dozen times an hour!

There is nothing more beautiful than the first time a child says "I love you."
