Jovie met Yo Gabba Gabba!

She’s loved them since she was a baby and we use it on her Tobii touch tablet as part of her therapy .. so I knew she was love it.

The show at Luna Park Sydney was great – at first too loud for her but she (and I) both were up and dancing. They had a charged up bubble machine during the bubble song – something we’ve seen on the DVD but amazing to see in person.

She started to get a bit cranky towards the end and was entering meltdown zone when we were in line to meet them. But luckily, as soon as we got to see and speak to DJ Lance, she calmed back down and tears turned into smiles. Bottle that magic and send it to me!

DJ Lance was really nice, it was only a quick 60 sec photo op but he asked how old she was, wished her a happy birthday and gave her a hug! I didn’t manage to give them our Rett Syndrome awareness card but did mention how important YGG was in Jovie’s therapy and how much she loves them.

While we sat on the side to gather our bag and jackets, Jovie lent in and have me a big sloppy kiss and kept looking over at them with a huge goofy grin.

Best day ever!!

Woah, 2014

So all of a sudden it’s May 2014. I didn’t mean to stay away from blogging for so long, but it felt necessary.

I won’t lie – I’ve had a rough year. Don’t get me wrong, pregnancy is a blessing but the hormones are just nuts. I’ve gone through a rough period, but I feel like I’m coming through the other side now and am ready to add things back into my life again.

I’ve just turned 33, the kids are doing great. Miles is almost ONE. Jovie’s about to turn FIVE. And Jasper is just this amazing little man. I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I’ll go with it.


Team Jovie 2013 kicked butt!

Another year of fundraising for Rett Syndrome research in Australia is over! We completed the Rebel Run Sydney on Sunday and raised $1,655 in the process :)

I am so thankful for all our family and friends coming together for Team Jovie – I still feel a bit crazy busy but it meant alot to me that we did it together.
