Olive age 4. A force of nature. Wild, fierce and fearless. Bonkers. A big sook, needy, clingy and relentless. Loud, incredibly loud. Giggle pot, goofball like her bro. Animated, over the top daredevil. Shy, sensitive, an emotional wreck. Defiant, impossible, the world will bend to her will. Possibly a super villain. Horse obsessed, animal lover. Maternal, Mum in the making. Collector of fluffy things. Artistic, kraft mad, serious drawing skills. If sheโ€™s not working for Rourke digging up bones she wants to be a fireman. Connected at the hip to her brother, drives him mad, he couldnโ€™t live without her. Junos play director, cat buddy, letโ€™s get our babyโ€™s and hit the shops bff. No no no stop...ok do it again kinda kid. Agrees with all compliments with complete confidence and a hair flick. Eye rolling sassy pants. Already a difficult teenager, god help us. Pint sized stunner. Dad needs a shotgun. Boys donโ€™t stand a chance. 3rd times a charm. Bomb proof. The life of the family, never a dull moment. House is so quiet without her. Lil pip, our sun shine. Oggy. -A.

Juno age 6. Sweet, mischievous with a wonderful sense of humour. Lady of a thousand accents and personalities all as adorable and hilarious as the next. whimsical with a flare for the dramatic. An infectious giggle that comes deep for her tummy and a smile from ear to ear. Loves her bed and canโ€™t stay up late to save her life but happily parties at 4am. Tender and gentle with flashes of destruction and chaos. Very particular and forthright in her demands. Not one to be messed with lightly. Fragile as a snowflake and a wrecking ball when she chooses. Lover of all the languages and fluent in them all or at least she sounds like it. Rhythmically gifted with a musical voice beyond her years. Defiant and independent for short bursts. A dancer without bounds, trend setter a booty shaker. Dreams of becoming a primo ballerina when she grows up or a mermaid. Obsessed with kids YouTube, unboxing videos are her jam. Shredder of boxes, destroyer of rooms, eater of carrots. Rourkes favourite thing to cuddle, Olives LOL sister. Pin cushion, med taking, hospital frequent flyer. Knocked out by every single bloody cold. The terror of all junior doctors. Living life on the edge without any choice in the matter. To beautiful and special for words. My heart and soul, the centre of our family. Our little June bug. -A.

...And then we found ourselves in the #bitcharsemotherfroggin emergency department! ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿšจ We had to take Juno in because she collapsed this afternoon, which is something sheโ€™s never done before. Weโ€™re always stressed more seizures ๐Ÿ’œ will come or that she could be dehydrated OR retaining fluid on the brain ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿง  or crisis-ing ๐ŸŒช or something entirely new when weird stuff happens.
It hasnโ€™t stopped though and she canโ€™t walk without support for the dizziness ๐ŸŒ€but we were given the option to leave after a few hours of stable obs as she is significantly more relaxed at home.
All the tests ๐Ÿ’‰๐ŸŒก๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿšฝโค๏ธ they ran were normal so weโ€™re both now collapsed in a heap, scratching our heads, waiting and hoping she magically wakes up entirely and completely well in the morning ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿคฒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ”‹๐Ÿ’ซ #letsgojunoletsgo ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ #likethesportsdaychant #comeonsingitwithmenow hahahaha ~Mia. .

Rourke age 7. A loving, caring boy a complete empath. Inquisitive, a goofball and totally aloof at times. He loves nature and learning facts, wants to be a palaeontologist/ pro video gamer. He has convinced his sister Olive to join his expeditions, she is in it mostly for the digging and they plan to live next to each other for convenience. Heโ€™s a chatter box like Mum and just as short fused. Shy and awkward around new people he has hit the donโ€™t embarrass me stage already. Obsessive, a collector and into the weird and creepy like dad. Terrified of goat man, the half goat half man that roams the woods attacking young lovers he saw in a documentary once his dad mistakenly let him watch. Will cry and complain of the slightest injury but will brush off life threatening ambulance rides to hospital and adrenal injections like it was no big deal. Eats everything (that he can) a real garbage disposal, always hungry. Has to have the healthiest kids diet around but rarely complains. Currently driving his parents nuts by dancing the floss all day. Adventurous, a real water spirit but also an Xbox playing couch potato. Wonderfully complicated, I love him to bits -A.

Port Noarlunga beach has become a fan favourite for our family. The boat ramp down to the beach makes for easy access with Juno and her wheelchair, good toilet facilities close by, wheat free chips at the chippy and the beach and reef is teaming with life and places to explore. We find something new every time we go. I just love it. -A. .

So many kind words yesterday and such a warm welcoming. Very humbling. Been a stressful few days leading up to Junoโ€™s surprise disability funding review and Iโ€™ve been house bound with two crook monkeys so it recharged the batteries, thank you. On the plus side of being stuck inside with such good weather the bulk of the washing and folding is done and itโ€™s only Tuesday!!#dadmumlyfe #imlegitstoked #whathasbecomeofme -Andrew.

Hey everyone itโ€™s Andrew (dad) here, I thought I would mark my first post with a quick hello. Thanks for having me aboard, I was going to just start another insta page featuring our family adventures but Mia was going to kill me if it got more likes than this page so here we are lol. I will do a quick sign off on each post so you know itโ€™s me but I assume the length and lack of emojis will be a dead give away anyway. The last 6-9 months have been a big adjustment for myself and the family. It was a hard decision to make leaving a business i helped start from scratch and employees and business partners who relied on me. It was even worse actually doing it but watching my wifeโ€™s bright flame dwindle under the enormity of our situation day after day and feeling powerless to help was far worse. My family needed more from me than any salary could provide. So now Iโ€™m a home maker and carer being run rings around by my 3 wildlings while drowning in dishes and folding and learning to take pride in the simple duties of a #dadmum. Itโ€™s been a sobering experience. All made worth it when watching Mia find herself again and dominate in her career. Very proud of her. Being present with my children and giving each of them time they require is incredibly satisfying and being Junoโ€™s rock through all the ups and downs fills my heart.
A big part of our new life is getting back to basics and enjoying the simple things. For me this is nature and the beach. Exploring and adventuring with the family. Itโ€™s the happiest time for me in an at times very hard and heartbreaking day to day life. So I hope you all enjoy the ride and it gives you push to do some adventuring yourselves. -Andrew ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ.
