But most of all, he loved Postman Pat. About 200 family and friends gathered at Ridgehaven to farewell Ollie, who last week died in his parents2019; bed surrounded by his family at their Craigmore home.Born on April 7, 2013, Oliver was the first son for Matthew and Nadine Climas, and at eight months, was found to have the incredibly rare Pearson Syndrome, which only about 100 people have been diagnosed with worldwide since the 1970s.Pearson Syndrome affects sufferers in different ways, in Oliver2019;s case it was his immune system that copped the brunt of the disease.Oliver Climas flanked by his new twin siblings Daisy and Edward in 2017. Photo: Calum RobertsonSource:News Corp Australia201C;We knew this day would come but you can never brace yourself for it, and it doesn2019;t feel right,201D; Mr Climas said.201C;You don2019;t expect to be at a place like this on a day like today to mark the end of a life journey that had hardly started, but here we are saying farewell to Oliver, before his time.201D;Late last month, Oliver went into a deep sleep from which his family knew could be his last.Mr Climas recounted how he and Nadine spoke to Ollie, assuring him it was okay if his little body was too tired to wake again.201C;We spoke to him about how he had fought a brave battle and that he had nothing else to prove,201D; Mr Climas said.201C;Of course we wanted him to stay, but we told him if it was his time to go, that was also okay.201D;An emotional Mrs Climas told Oliver: 2018;I will always be proud of you and I will remember you every single day2019; her husband said.Oliver Climas with his mum Nadine at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Picture: Keryn StevensSource:News Corp Australia201C;It was like he was waiting to hear these words from us, as only 20 minutes later he took his last breath, at home in our bed with us.201D;Doctors initially predicted Oliver would not live past three years of age.But in addition to cuddling strangers, charming any lady who crossed his cheeky path and Postman Pat, Oliver Climas loved beating the odds.201C;He had huge fight in him to overcome the many challenges that he faced and as scary as things became, it was quite remarkable watching him bounce back time and time again,201D; Mr Climas said.While the condition prevented him from going to kindergarten or school and many typical childhood activities, Oliver derived sheer joy just from watching others enjoy themselves.201C;Oliver loved interacting with others, and loved watching other kids running around laughing, he would scream in excitement,201D; his father said.After enduring a hospital visit that lasted almost a full year, during which his charm and affection saw Womens and Childrenapos;s Hospital nurses 201C;wrapped around his finger201D;, he bounced back.Mr Climas said a cherished memory was when Oliver was page boy at their wedding on Daydream Island in 2016.201C;That day was just as much about him as it was about us, we shared the spotlight,201D; he said.Few who attended yesterday2019;s celebration will hear the catchy Postman Pat tune again without thinking of Ollie and his short but stellar life.Little Oliver Climas with his mum Nadine when he was two. Picture: Roy VanDerVegtSource:News Corp AustraliaThe theme song played repeatedly, prompting Mr Climas to recall how Ollie would take up most of their kingsize bed with his collection of Postman Pat DVDs.201C;Another priceless memory is of him waking up each morning, gently slapping your face so you could turn Postman Pat back on, sometimes at three in the morning,201D; he said.The Climas family will next month travel to Melbourne where baby Violet will undergo surgery to repair a heart defect, which they hope will cure her and allow her a normal childhood.Mr Climas thanked the team of doctors, nurses, carers and therapists who helped Ollie on his journey, and his old footy club Fitzroy, who honoured the little boy by wearing black armbands in last week2019;s matches.Originally published asFinal farewell to a little fighter and charmertrending in nationalA boxer and his influencer wife have been slammed, even by their own family, for spending an “awful lot of money” on their child’s first birthday party.

You feel like a million dollars.mdash; Dad and Buried (@DadandBuried) July 17, 2019In a mammoth post that has since attracted global attention, Mike revealed he didn2019;t want to do be a parent because he lacks the temperament, patience and interest in the job.201C;Circumstances being what they are, and summer being what it is, someone has to stay home with my kids all day,201D; he wrote on Instagram.201C;Mum 2026; has done it for years, and now she2019;s working and I2019;m not, so I2019;m back in the saddle.201D;But reluctance 201C;and unsuitability201D; aside, Mike admitted he had no choice but to get better at it.Mike also admitted he had accidentally punched his eight-year-old son in the face during a round of wrestling, leaving him with bloodied nose.BUT I DON2019;T HAVE A CHOICEAccording to Mike, he understands 201C;I also don2019;t have a choice201D;.201C;I don2019;t want to have to find ways to fill my kids2019; days all summer,201D; he wrote.201C;I don2019;t want to plan, I don2019;t want to pack stuff, I don2019;t want to herd them places, I don2019;t want to go places.201D;Mike is brutally honest about how much he doesn’t enjoy being a stay-at-home dad.

Picture: Instagram/ohsobusymumSource:InstagramA Queensland mother has issued a warning after her three-year-old daughter “nearly died” from eating popcorn.Cheree Lawrence, 34, shared the shocking story on her blog Oh So Busy Mum last week, detailing how the seemingly innocent snack food left her little girl hospitalised in a serious condition with lasting lung damage.Cheree Lawrence is a mum-of-four from Brisbane. Picture: Instagram/ohsobusymumSource:InstagramA HARMLESS SNACKMs Lawrence has four daughters, now aged between 4 and 13, and lives in Brisbane.She is a well-known blogger who updates more than 300,000 social media followers on travel, lifestyle and parenting tips each week.According to the busy mum, her four children had snacked on popcorn all through their lives without any problems.So when her daughter, three years old at the time, asked for a snack, she didn2019;t hesitate to hand over a bowl of popcorn.201C;My three-year-old was happily sitting on the lounge chair eating a bowl of plain popcorn when she coughed and choked a little,201D; Ms Lawrence said.201C;I didn2019;t think anything of it and gave her a drink of water.201D;Ms Lawrence said her girls have been eating popcorn for most of their lives. Picture: Instagram/ohsobusymumSource:InstagramBut within minutes, the toddler2019;s condition worsened, and her cough soon turned into a deep wheezing noise.The Brisbane mum didn2019;t realise at the time, but her daughter had aspirated on a piece of popcorn she had just ingested.201C;We watched her, and over the next 30 minutes, her wheeze started to get worse, so we decided to take her to the emergency room,201D; she said.THE EMERGENCY ROOMMs Lawrence raced her daughter to the nearest emergency department, and by the time they had arrived, 201C;her wheeze was quite scary and she had loud stridor201D;.A stridor is a high-pitched, wheezing sound that occurs when a person2019;s airway is blocked 2014; in this case, by a piece of popcorn.Doctors surrounded their tiny patient in a resuscitation area of the hospital, desperately trying to figure out what had happened to her.201C;I told them about the popcorn incident and explained what had happened soon after,201D; Ms Lawrence said.201C;They immediately administered steroids, adrenaline and started her on Ventolin bursts.201D;Ventolin is usually prescribed to asthma patients, but Ms Lawrence said her daughter was perfectly healthy and had never shown any signs of having developed asthma.Despite the medication, nothing seemed to completely stop her daughter2019;s symptoms, so Ms Lawrence continued to remind the attending team of the popcorn she had just eaten, convinced it was the cause of her suffering.201C;The doctors and nurses didn2019;t seem to think it was connected because she was responding to treatment,201D; Ms Lawrence said.Doctors discharged the little girl the following day, putting the episode down to a 201C;sudden onset of asthma201D;.Her mother wasn2019;t comfortable with the diagnosis but took her daughter home and continued to monitor her.201C;They told us that if it was the popcorn, she wouldn2019;t have improved with Ventolin and treatment,201D; she said.Doctors put the little girl on steroids, adrenaline and Ventolin. Picture: Instagram/ohsobusymumSource:InstagramA SUDDEN CHANGESeveral days after Ms Lawrence took her daughter home again, her fierce wheezing symptoms returned and she was 201C;struggling to breathe once again201D;.She was raced back to hospital, where a second doctor told Ms Lawrence it was 201C;unlikely201D; her daughter had aspirated on a piece of popcorn, even refusing to take an X-ray of her lungs.Her daughter was discharged again from hospital with some asthma medication.SYMPTOMS CONTINUEDA fortnight later, Ms Lawrence2019;s daughter was displaying breathing issues with alarming regularity 2014; a 201C;constant wheeze201D; that left her in a great amount of pain and distress.She was unable to run, swim or play because of her wheezing, so she was taken back to hospital for the third time.There, doctors simply prescribed her more Ventolin and steroids, but the little girl2019;s mother had officially had enough.201C;Three weeks after she first choked, I was over it and sick of watching her struggle to breathe,201D; Ms Lawrence said.201C;The doctor was frustrated with me and assured me she was fine and to keep up the Ventolin when needed.201D;Sure enough, upon Ms Lawrence’s insistence, doctors were able to locate a piece of popcorn on her lung. Picture: OhSoBusyMumSource:SuppliedThe dark spots on each slide show the popcorn piece. Picture: OhSoBusyMumSource:SuppliedIn a desperate attempt to end her daughter2019;s suffering, she took her to a local GP who was 201C;really concerned after listening to her chest201D;.They were booked in for an immediate X-ray, which revealed the little girl had developed pneumonia and inflammation on her lung.Ms Lawrence was told to take her daughter to the emergency department immediately, accompanied by a stern letter from the doctor, instructing them to investigate her issue seriously.EMERGENCY SURGERYThe same afternoon, Ms Lawrence and her family were waiting anxiously for news after her daughter was taken into emergency surgery.Doctors removed the piece of popcorn she had aspirated on five weeks earlier.According to Ms Lawrence, it was too late, and the damage had already been done.201C;The popcorn had caused some damage to her lung because it sat there for five long weeks and slowly started breaking down,201D; she said.201C;I don2019;t want to think about what could have happened if I didn2019;t take her to see the private specialist.201D;Ms Lawrence wants to warn parents to “always listen to your gut”. Picture: Instagram/ohsobusymumSource:InstagramTRUST YOUR GUTMs Lawrence said her family2019;s horrifying ordeal had taught her to 201C;always trust your gut instinct201D;.201C;I had no idea how dangerous it is for young children to aspirate on or that children under five shouldn2019;t have popcorn at all,201D; she said.201C;Doctors can and do get it wrong all the time, and us as parents know our children and know when something is off with them.201D;She said she wanted to share her story so 201C;other parents know the dangers of giving young children popcorn201D;.201C;I ignored my gut instinct and put all my trust in what doctors were telling me (because how could so many doctors get it wrong?) and it could have very well cost my daughter her life,201D; she said.Continue the conversation @Rhi_lani or email rhian.deutrom@news.com.autrending in lifestyleThere are large disparities in the amount of household work men and women do after a baby arrives. Picture: iStockSource:SuppliedI remember those hazy weeks and months after the birth of my first child. I stayed at home with him for nearly 10 months, slightly demented from sleep deprivation, as my then husband went out to work. Neither of us seriously considered an alternative. But that was 20 years ago. These days, things are very different.Except they2019;re not different at all.According to new research from the Australian Institute of Family Studies, the work lives of women continue to be 201C;dramatically201D; changed by parenthood, whereas the work lives of men are not. Women work few hours outside the home when their babies are young, and average only part-time hours as their kids get older.Most men, on the other hand, remain in full-time work over the course of their children2019;s lives. Though opportunities to work part-time are increasingly available, they are rarely taking them up.This graph sums up the dilemma. When a child arrives, dads spend about the same number of hours at work, while a mum2019;s time is dramatically altered.Picture: Australian Institute of Family StudiesSource:SuppliedAs a result, women continue to be disadvantaged long term. When women work part-time hours, they receive a part-time income, so they have fewer independent resources within the family unit. Frequently, this also translates to less financial autonomy, as many primary breadwinners believe they have the right to control the family income, despite the dependent spouse working as many or more hours in the home.In fact, women are more than twice as likely as men to suffer from economic abuse, in which one person controls their partner2019;s access to bank accounts, cash, income statements and property in order to create financial dependence.Even in marriages without economic abuse, the reduced income of mothers creates vulnerability. When marriages break down, which nearly a third of first marriages do, women are seriously disadvantaged by their decreased earning potential.This is not just bad for individual women; it2019;s bad for our society. When women take breaks from their careers to raise children, they slow or halt their career progression. Fewer women end up in senior positions, and the balance of power in business and in the public service continues to be held by men.Men’s lives are not nearly as altered by having a kid as women’s.Source:SuppliedBut the solution isn2019;t simply one of increased access to parental leave. According to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, when leave is available, it is almost always taken up by women. Our culture still maintains gendered attitudes to work and child care, and men are still largely regarded as the default breadwinners, and women as the default homemakers.It2019;s so hard to change these entrenched ideas. We women carry the babies, so we can2019;t share the load of pregnancy. And then we give birth, and need to take time off work to recover, so we2019;re at home with the baby then anyway, right?And, of course, we2019;re breastfeeding, so we may as well do the night feeds, because there2019;s no point two people waking up in the middle of the night. And then we2019;re exhausted from all the night waking, so we2019;re too fuzzy to go out to work anyway, so it2019;s good we have this time to be at home.And then one day, the baby starts sleeping through the night, and we are less exhausted, but by then we2019;ve already been home with the baby for four or six months. There2019;s no point our husband leaving paid work now, because we need his income, and besides, we2019;d just have to teach him how to do everything. So we go back to work part-time, and continue on until the next baby comes, when we take more time off, and do it all again.At least, that2019;s how it was for me 20 years ago.Having a baby can seriously weaken women’s careers and earning potential.Source:istockBut imagine if it hadn2019;t been like that 20 years ago? Imagine if it was the norm back then for at least half of new fathers to stay home with the baby from day one? Chances are, by now, there would be equal numbers of women and men in full-time work. Chances are, by now, there would be equal numbers of women and men in senior positions. Chances are, by now, women would be less economically disadvantaged, and hold an equal balance of power in society.It2019;s the change we desperately need, but it must start now. We need to get more men at home, and more women in the workforce. Gender equality is such a hard road. It will take at least another 20 years.trending in lifestyleMatt and Nadine Climas with Oliver and their new twin babies Daisy and Edward in 2017.Photo: Calum RobertsonSource:News Corp AustraliaOliver Climas loved cuddles, balloons and his adoring family.
