Something incredible happened the other day and I can’t believe I managed to capture it in video, I’m so glad I have my phone firmly glued to my hand. When you have a Special Needs child it can be really hard work, then something happens that makes every single struggle 100% worthwhile.

I was just so blown away by this and have been showing anyone that will watch, the staff at nursery, the Health Visitor, family & friends so now it’s time to share it here on my blog. This is the first video I’ve even shared on YouTube so unfortunately it’s in portrait instead of landscape and it’s not all fancy but it’s bloody amazing and you have to watch it!

    This kind of choked me up a bit! I know how much that small step means to you! and how amazing you caught in on camera! I keep looking back at exposing Mr Tumble to Hayden a bit more. I cannot stand many programmes on cbeebies so the boys are left with Disney most of the time, but I really have a feeling the nature of mr tumble will really appeal to hayden. I may well just have to give it a go! xx
