About

... my son
Sunny is truly pure sunshine! His smile and laughter are absolutely contagious. He has the kindest personality, the biggest heart and is absolutely determined when it comes to learning something new. He has silky hair, soft and milky skin, and his eyes are like heaven on a sunny day. My son was born in 2007.
Apart from that, he has a global developmental delay which means that his gross as well as fine motor skills are affected. Also, his receptive as well as expressive speech are significantly delayed (I have to say, though, that his receptive speech is quite good compared to the expressive speech, he understands most of what we say). He also has a sensory processing disorder and a feeding/eating disorder. Although he is not officially diagnosed as being on the spectrum he shows some autistic behaviour patterns.

...me
My name is Joy. I am a thirty-something who loves life, has a my-glass-is-half-full attitude (at least most of the time ;-) ), enjoys good food, treasures friendships, and wishes for more empathy in this world. I try to support Sunny in the best way possible, all the while trying not to forget to teach him that life is fun and ensuring that he has a wonderful childhood.
You may or may not have noticed that English is not my mother tongue (if you haven't, then kudos to me because that means my English is pretty good which is quite cool ;-) ). Consequently, you will surely find some mistakes in my posts from time to time or, even worse, I might use expressions which are not politically correct or maybe even insulting. Please always bear in mind that the reason for that most likely is not bad intention but only due to bad translation or lack of better knowledge. In these cases please kindly shoot me an e-mail and let me know and I will correct those mistakes. I will be forever thankful for your kind help.

... the name of this blog
This blog is called "i can say mama" because "Mama" is one of the few words that Sunny can say.

  6. Your English is brilliant - far better than many people who have English as a first language (I used to be an English teacher!). Do you mind if I ask what your first language is? Is it Portuguese or Spanish?

    1. Dear Lizzy,

      Thank you so much for this flattering compliment!

      I am from Germany: born, raised and still live here to date (and I do not think that is going to change).
