About me.

Hi, my names Nicola but I prefer Nikki. I’m 27 years old and proud mum of 4 beautiful kids (T, P, E and Baby) an 2 step kids (M and A).

I got married in March 2013 and I was 11 weeks pregnant with my 4th (and last) child, my little Baby girl.
My husband Andy and I found ourselves on a unexpected yet amazing journey, which started when we found out our youngest daughter has Down syndrome, shortly after she was born and I want to share our journey with you.
We were both already use to dealing with hospital appointments and stays. As E was born with kidney reflux (vesicoureteral reflux) and a duplex kidney, which means she is at risk of getting frequent water infections (UTI’s). E had surgery in June 2014 to hopefully correct the reflux.

This blog is about everything we get up to as a family and how I manage to deal with day to day life with 4 kids and lots of hospital appointments.

Meet T


10 years old

Likes: power rangers, minecraft, riding his bike, Lego and take outs

Dislikes: being told off, homework and tiding his room.

T is my first son and open my eyes to motherhood. He is entering a attitude stage that I’m guessing is his preteen attitude kicking in.

Meet P


6 years old

Likes: food, scooby doo and going on walks with grandad.

Dislikes: bedtime, sleep and tidying up.

P is my second son and I love home dearly but he knows how to press all my buttons. Luckily he is super cute an gives great hugs, so he is easy to forgive.

Meet E


3 year old

Likes: Tinker bell, little mermaid, doc mcstuffins, play group, and my mummy’s cuddles.

Dislikes: being told no, bedtime and having to share with my brothers.

E is my third child an my first girl. She also had plenty of hospital visits herself due to a duplex kidney and kidney reflux.

Meet Baby


Born on 4th October 2013

Weight: 6lbs 10oz

Likes: cuddles, kisses, mummy’s singing (even though it’s terrible), my brothers and sister and going to play group.

Dislikes: loud noises, being put down and mummy leaving the room.

Baby rocks her extra chromosome and that makes her extra amazing.

I hope you enjoy reading and will, like and and follow us 🙂
