3 cakes

Seems appropriate that for L’s third birthday today I have in fact made three birthday cakes. The first got seconded by Bs school disco and the second was sent in for his nursery birthday two days ago and finally number three for the big day. Nothing fancy but he’s happy with it (and I made it at 7am after being up past one building a train table so I think it’s pretty miraculous!)

Square Peg Clothing

For anyone who doesn’t know my other love (after my children) is Square Peg Clothing which I stared with my family after being basically annoyed with T-shirts declaring children with Autism to be “Autistic not Naughty.” etc.  My daughter is definitely both!! 10577195_10154565525915298_8583183348120120277_n
