Mummy on Wheels

On Saturday we shared Unbreakable: a film by Rebecca Kirwan, which is a short documentary about Jodie, and her husband Todd. If you missed it you can catch up here.  The documentary ends with the question, what next for Jodie and Todd?

Today we congratulate Jodie and Todd on the safe arrival of Ethan, their first baby boy.

Mum, bub and Daddy are all doing well.

You can follow Jodie's story from her Facebook page Mummy on Wheels.

Trents Aboriginal Art



I created this design last year to show our journey with our son and to help raise awareness of his medical condition Osteogensis Imperfect Type III Severe, and with the help from an amazing friend of ours Bree Sauer from Fresh Start Professional Healthcare who is also our son's Exercise Physiologist, RockTape Australia printed this art work on there RockTape. Proud was an understatement I can not describe how proud my family an I were to see this happen. To help Raise awearness of my son and my partners medical condition is somthing im very passionate about and so is our son's best friend Miss Nini. Please read her storie below. Goannas "Rocky" RockTape 🥊 🥊 Tahlia Earle has a massive passion for exercise including martial arts, footy, and boxing!! She is 9 years old and uses rocktape regularly for her knees. The artist of her favourite design "Goannas" is her best friend's dad, Trent Squires. She was so proud of the story behind the design she wanted to show everyone by having the design on her gloves. People ask her about it then she tells them the story of Marcellus who she loves so much! She really wants the awareness of Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) out there. 🦎🦎 Tahlia reckons having the rocktape on her wrist will give her strength to hit like a rock 🥊 **Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), commonly known as Brittle Bones, is a genetic disorder characterized by bones that break easily, often from little or no apparent cause. A person with OI may have just a few or as many as several hundred fractures in a lifetime. 💛 #gostrongerlonger #rocktapeaustralia #freshstartprofessionalhealthcare #goannas
