Upholsterer, mum of 2 wild boys

I have two very energetic boys, who do not stop from the moment they wake until bedtime! I am their climbing frame, mediator, their comforter and exerciser, but I wouldn't change it for the world!

The best advice someone gave me when I had boys was "exercise them like you do a dog!" So I took this quite literally and that is exactly what we do everyday.

My 6-year-old son has recently been diagnosed with High-Functioning Autism and ADHD, and so I have been thrown into a totally unknown world, which has been petrifying and overwhelming all at once! Hopefully I can give comfort to anyone else going through this and hopefully shine a bit more light on a syndrome that is now becoming far more understood.
