With two teenagers and a four-year-old in the house it can be hard to get quality time with the teenagers because the four-year-old rules the roost. But with one off to uni this year and the other starting year 11 we are very aware that their time at home is limited and we want to make the most of it.
Let’s just say in my early teens I wasn’t the saint my parents would have liked to have claimed as their daughter. Growing up in a Christian household, I was shall we say rather sheltered from the ‘naughtiness’ of this world. That is until I decided to run away from home and explore all there was on offer. From winning jelly wrestling completions at the pub on Airlie beach to partying til sunrise in the city… I’ve done my fair share of giving my poor parents heart attack after heart attack.
We are so excited for Ballerina! We’ve been waiting for ages to see it. We know you are waiting too so we have some very special packs for you.
It’s that time of the year again when a lot of little kids prepare for starting school. Along with the excitement of new school uniform, bags and water bottles comes the nervousness and anxiety. Many children are already used to being separated from parents for some time due to perhaps being in daycare or preschool. But big school is different.
Baking is one of my favourite parts of Christmas. I love making things with the kids and making old favourites together. However, it’s important to be age appropriate with the baking so your little one doesn’t get too bored. These Christmas Brownies are so easy to make.

It’s been a few years since I have had a kid in nappies but when I did, the ALDI Mamia nappies and wipes were my go-to choice. They were affordable and effective for Tully, with minimal leaking issues and no skin irritations. However, having three kids, I’m well aware that what works for one kid may not work for another. With this in mind, when we were asked to road test the Mamia range I sent out nappies to five different families with different aged children, different requirements and different skin.
There are times in our lives where life changes crash in so quickly, you find yourself tumbling around in what seems like a deep dark ocean of rough turbulent waves that barely allow you to catch your breath.
In these moments of uncertainty and transition, the concept of time seems to disappear and the events that take place keep crashing over you, suffocating you and not allowing you to look up and see the shoreline now barely in sight.
