I got married in March 2013 to my husband Andy. I was 11 weeks pregnant with our last child LM when I said my vows. It was when our daughter was born that we found ourselves on a unexpected, yet amazing journey because our youngest daughter has Down syndrome and I want to share our journey with you.
We were both already use to dealing with hospital appointments and stays. As E was born with kidney reflux (vesicoureteral reflux) and a duplex kidney, which means she is at risk of getting frequent water infections (UTI’s). E had surgery in June 2014 to hopefully correct the reflux.
This blog is about everything we get up to as a family and how I manage to deal with day to day life with 4 kids and lots of hospital appointments.

T is my first son and opened my eyes to motherhood. He is now a fledged tween that can be difficult to handle at times but deep down I know he has a big heart.

P is my second son and I love him dearly but he knows how to press all my buttons. Luckily he is super cute and gives great hugs, so he is easy to forgive.
