WHO ARE WE?

Here we are! Joel (top left) is four years old and Amos (foreground, laughing) is three! 

 

There's the one and only lady of the family and we're sure you can tell the overgrown kid apart from the real ones!

One day, a neighbour came by to hang out with Joel, and Amos—compelled by his love for guests—welcomed her with jangling props and a bizarre dance. Joel said his brother was excited because that day was his birthday and he had turned 7. A congratulatory remark, even a...

The recent Saturday of November 9th, 2019 was a special day. It was Amos' graduation from Rainbow Centre and it could not have been more meaningful and memorable.

Life is full of surprises. Double that at graduation. If you've checked out our latest post on Faceboo...

Three days ago Amos lost his school teacher.

It didn’t register at once when we learned how she had suddenly collapsed one evening and passed on. It was all too close to us, too unexpected, as the day we were told to prepare for the arrival of a child with special needs...

Sunflower Animal Farm

It’s the June holidays! Off we went to Perth for our first “long haul” trip after six long years since Amos’ birth in 2013. The airplane ride had our two little country pumpkins squealing—Joel a little more subdued but Amos wouldn’t stop grinning....

World Down Syndrome Day 2019 has come and gone, and with it, Amos’ 6th birthday. It feels unreal. We are in a manic phase of our lives where we couldn’t tell the days from the weeks; weeks from the months; months from the years. The boys have grown. Joel’s hand is now...

Things really do go bump in the night.

This documents my first harrowing experience of something that makes you want to laugh and tear your hair out at the same time. Here's Amos' Wee-Hour Adventures - at least until we put the baby gate back in to keep him where he's s...

August 22, 2018

Last week, we decided to drop by somewhere. It was a holiday (like today) and we wanted something no-frills, something light and leisurely. Somewhere that would relieve us of cares and expectations. Somewhere that would take us wherever it might.

So by a stroke of inspi...

I know…we’ve been ranting about crazy months. This has been another mad, manic one. The kids fell ill, Mommy too. The days were packed to the brim, overflowed at times such that we’d sleep four to five-hour nights. But we’re glad we are starting to fall into a decent r...

We’ve taken a looong hiatus from posting. We wished we hadn’t, but the adjustments we had to make over the past 6 months totally sapped us. Remember the 7-hour healthy sleep rule? Scrap that when Joel started primary school this January. We caught 5.5 hours of sleep on...

One evening I came home feeling like a wreck. Amos would waddle over like a puckish little pixie and say hello and hug my legs. And he looked so cheery I couldn’t help picking him up and asking, in a tone laced with doubt and frustration,

Why are you always so happy?’
