About me

About me

I’m a 40 something working mum of 2 spirited unicorns that look a lot like human children. I have no idea what I’m doing, as a parent.

I live in Brisbane, in sunny Queensland (Australia in case you were wondering), which is where the amazing kids show, Bluey, is made.

From the time my children were born I’ve been on an incredible roller coaster ride, but the last 2 years have been like a ride I never thought would end. I entered the world of neurodiverse, spirited parenting, and discovered that it can be such a lonely labyrinth to be in.

So, for myself, and in acknowledgement of all the other parents out there that have felt isolated and completely overwhelmed, I wanted to reach out, share my often ridiculous stories (and other things) and hopefully make someone else feel a little less crazy or alone along the way.

I want to thank my patient forbearing family for making this happen. This has been something I couldn’t have done without my family.

Thank you Em, my editor and sister, for taking the time to read and keep me on track. And for everything else you do for me.

Thanks to MJ, my genius brother who helped me with all things IT behind the scenes. And was nice enough not to laugh at all my silly questions.

Mum and Dad – thanks for sharing my excitement!

My very compact but AMAZING tribe, you know who you are.

Mr H – little did he know, on New Year’s Eve 2019, he gave me the encouragement to make this blog my personal mission for 2020. Mr H thought he was just watching the fireworks on T.V. but we were actually having a conversation. Our D and M’s happen like this all the time.

Last but not least – thank you to my children. For just being who you are. You’ve given me character, more so than an Army Boot Camp would have.

So…..Happy Reading! xxxx Ren
