My name is Nikki and I still feel as though I am faking being an adult. In some sort of quantum leap I woke up one day 34 years of age, as a working mum of two children, one of whom is on the autistic spectrum.
My blog is focused on our experiences with Sawyer’s autism, as well as my fears, hopes and dreams for his future. General parenting topics are threaded in to each post, since not only am I mummy to Sawyer, but also to his neurotypical little sister.
Thank you for finding us. Put your feet up and have a look around my site. Read some of our stories, join our journey.
“Diverse, moving copy that speaks to every kind of parent.”

“There are many of us out there – mums of autistic children – and Nic is one of them (as am I). Nic is brave and honest enough to write about hers and Sawyer’s emotional roller coaster journey. It reminds us that we are not alone on this journey, although our kids will show different symptoms and it is OK to be frustrated/angry/an emotional wreck/ask for help/awesome/amazing. Thank you Nic for sharing.”
