From Little Things, Big Things Grow
Parenthood isn't the picture perfect images and stories we see on social media and the big screen. Things very seldom go to plan.. For us this became very apparent when our twins came rushing into the world at only 24 weeks gestation.
The first 4 months were tough.. watching your babies poked and prodded on a daily basis, watching their body's develop (fun Fact nipples don't develop until after 30 weeks) when you shouldn't be able to..
Having a baby prematurely is damn hard... but there was fantastic support from organizations like Tiny Sparks that really made a difference, and for that we are soooo very thankful.
This is why we donate $10 from each sale from our climbing range.
Now our NICU journey was easier than a lot of families; we have both of our amazing children home with us.
Little Frankie who is going to cause us serious grief in a few years time.. and Master Archie (born before the Prince FYI) his journey was a bit harder than his sisters, he suffered a bleed in the right ventricle of his brain, and as he has progressed he has had a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy and has a visual impairment also; but don't you worry that doesn't slow him down!!
Between therapy appointments for our boy with additional needs, to laundry ..the never ending pile of laundry, we created our business as a way to provide everything possible for our little miracles, and so mum can stay home and do all that laundry..
This is how Big Little and Co was born.
