Our son Matt has brought such joy to us and through him we have learnt so many things about ourselves and life. He has a rare genetic syndrome called Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome. This blog is where we process the things we have learnt, where we share our challenges and pains, and where we celebrate small victories.

At our local theme park there are many rides, but the one that I hate the most is the spinning cups. One sits in a big tea cup - it can hold up to 4 people. It spins around on its axis whilst simultaneously moving around a big cirlcle. I always feel very nauseaus on it and for a good while after. However I imagine that if we took Matt he would love it. Here are some photos of his new favourite activity with dad.
First I climb into this small bucket that my mom uses for laundry.
Right! I am ready to go!!
Dad likes to push me forward and backwards - it makes me laugh with joy!
And then I spin from side to side - hilarious!
The best part is the rocking - to and fro, forwards and backwards, Yee ha!
When we have both had enough (usually dad has had enough before me) then I get to clamber out and play with the bucket on my own.
