BAPS Nominations – Most Entertaining

To Entertain: To provide (someone) with amusement or enjoyment.

We asked you to nominate the blog that entertains you the most.  Some of the reasons you gave us about why you nominated each blog show just what a difference parent bloggers make to many families.

As we all know, being a parent may be the only thing you have in common – one size does not fit all.  So it is great that there seems to be something for everyone out there.

Practical thoughtful suggestions but still funny.

She does an awesome job supporting her daughter & the wider t1 diabetes community with a great balance of humour & practical advice.

This is the most entertaining from the heart blog I have ever read. She has inspired me to write my own blog and I have found comfort in this.

Autism from a Dad’s Eye View

He shares his life in a way that makes you feel better about your own life and thoughts. He will try and help others with either his own life or put out there for others to help. He has amusing stories and is one Badass Autism Dad!

Born at the Right Time

Her humour throughout her family ups and downs is truly inspirational.

Her blogs are a delight to read, I have laughed and cried through many of her blogs. I first came across her through her campaign to get supermarkets to stock bigger nappies for disabled children

Love her humorous approach to serious subject matter and family life with SEND

I find her blogs very interesting and informative. Her subject matter is something that people involved with autism and other conditions can relate to.

Truly inspirational, honest and hilariously funny posts. She always sees the light at the end of the tunnel and shares experiences that others would prefer to keep quiet about. She will help others see our lives don’t need to be perfect to be great!

Isla’s Voice

She has a very honest, entertaining and heart felt way of writing her experience of being a mum to Isla who has autism. Her daily experience and journey makes you stop and think about the reality of life for her as a mum, her family and Isla. She has touched many people’s lives through the blog, which can be heart wrenching as well as well as making you laugh out loud, receiving regular messages from people who can resonate with her words.

Because she is bloody awesome person,and wonderful blogger who somehow manages to keep a sense of humour.She is an iron fist in a velvet glove.

I love the bloggers sense of humour, her writing style and positive stance on disability.

Our Altered Life

It tells the story of a new mother of twin boys and how they are coming to terms with one son being born with Goldenhar syndrome and Hemifacial Microsomnia while at the same time staying strong for the elder twin. Her story is as it happened, heart wrenching, warm and funny. Her blogs gives hope to other parents in a similar situation and at the same time gives knowledge to us that are ignorant of how life is when faced in this situation. She shares her days whether they be good or bad, sad or funny. She answers honestly to all her followers. She is inspirational.

PDA Parenting

She has a rare talent in being able to portray her story and experiences and the emotional impact of Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) on her in a way that is entertaining, poignant and sometimes hard hitting. She uses metaphors in her very descriptive and at time harrowing blogs. She informs, educates and raises awareness of PDA and leaves the reader feeling that she has empathy and understanding of those in the same situation.

She rocks this world. She is inspiring, witty and cuts through the crap to tell it like it is.

Spitting Yarn

She is a new comer blogger with beautiful lyrical writing, that comes at ASD/SEN world from a life enhancing angle.

Steph’s Two Girls

She writes movingly and with good humour about the ups and downs that she and her family are going through. I’ve learned a lot about SEND from reading her blogs and as a teacher I guess it’s helped me to think more about some of the challenges that face the children I teach.

A very funny honest and inspiring blog from an amazing father.
