Getting a dog can be a big decision, and it must not be made lightly. While you should never get any sort of pet just for the children (because let’s face it, you’ll be doing most of the work!) a pet can add a whole new dynamic to the family and can be hugely beneficial, both in terms of your child’s emotional wellbeing and in helping them learn a sense of responsibility.

When we were asked by Hasbro to check out their new game, Fantastic Gymnastics, we thought what better way to road test it than with our real mum reviewers. Fantastic Gymnastics is recommended for kids aged 8+ so we found two mums with 8-9-year-old girls to see if they could take on the Fantastic Gymnastics game challenge!

Mother’s Day, that time when mums end up with a bunch of nana style dressing gowns and fluffy socks, reading books from the $2 table that always involve a WWII nurse from a small English country town who falls in love with a soldier. Yep, you know the ones!
Last weekend the teenagers and I headed to Moore Park to check out Titanic The Exhibition. Now, we are all big fans of the Titanic story (and the James Cameron movie) so we were looking forward to the exhibition. Zali was armed with one of her many conspiracy theories, this time that it was, in fact, the Olympic, Titanic’s sister ship that set sail and sunk. She loves a good conspiracy.

Over the long weekend, we went camping with friends and family for three nights. There were six kids along for the ride and, on an unpowered site, we needed some entertainment! Hasbro had sent me their new game, Toilet Trouble, to try out, and I thought this might be the perfect time to give it a road test. After all, with all the kids aged between three and seven, toilet humour is the funniest thing ever!
It’s that time of year again! Tully has been counting down to her next Disney on Ice experience and we know your little ones probably are too. This year Disney on Ice presents Frozen– the full story in all its glory, and we have four tickets to give away to a show in your city.
With the release of the much anticipated new Beauty and the Beast live-action film by Disney, Sofitel Sydney Wentworth has created a Beauty and the Beast experience for its guests. They have created an accommodation and high tea package that is perfect for your little Beauty and the Beast fans.
Ok, who loves Supernanny as much as I do? There’s nothing more satisfying that watching her tame feral children in an hour. Some of those kids are out of control! How do people live like that? Watching Supernanny makes me feel so much more in control of my life, lol!
Well, now you can see her in person because she’s coming to Australia for a tour!

Family movie nights are one of our most popular family bonding activities. We are all massive movie lovers and we love nothing better than watching movies and then discussing them (sometimes very passionately!). While my husband and the teenagers do a weekly family movie night we also try and include Tully as well. There has been a great range of family movies released recently on DVD and Blu-Ray and one of our favourites is SING!
