Adulting can be tough- there is so much to learn! I’m still learning. Lately, it’s been about buying and selling property. We have just purchased our first investment property, with the ultimate goal of having several- some for a shorter-term investment and some for growing over time. This is our retirement strategy given that, as a freelancer, I have almost no super, and property is a pretty sure thing. Continue reading
As parents, one of thing things that can be hard to get your head around is car seat safety. There are laws, there are recommendations and then there are mums in your mother’s group turning their children forward facing at six months, while others are still rear facing at three- years-old. We look at the laws, recommendations and why Type G car seats is the safest on the market.
Summer is well and truly here! It’s the best time of year and we are so excited! There’s lots of lying by the pool relaxing and swimming and lots of ice creams and cold drinks. How can anyone ever say anything bad about summer?!!! Anyway, to celebrate summer we wanted to share some of our very fave finds that you all just have to have. Seriously! Check out our summer essentials below:

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.
As a busy Mum of two, I must admit that if I don’t start my day with my morning coffee it’s all downhill from there! Watch out kids and hubby!
We review a fair few prams over here at Stuff Mums Like (I may have a bit of a thing for prams- even though I no longer have a baby!). This time, we got to test out the Baby Jogger City Mini GT. I recruited my friend Kate and her beautiful baby boy Carter so that she could give me the low down. She used to work at MotherCare so she’s had a lot of experience with prams and the Baby Jogger City Mini GT was always one of her favourites.
My husband loves camping and his idea of a great family holiday is a family camping trip. My perfect holiday is a 5-star hotel with electricity. I’m pretty sure I go into panic mode the moment my phone battery gets below 50%.

NITS! They are the bane of every parent’s existence. The constant spray/comb/wash/ repeat until they are FINALLY gone. For some reason all three of my kids are nit attractors. You’d think once they were teens you could escape the nits, but not when you have a four-year-old as well- nits are dragged in from kindy at every opportunity.

I wake up at the crack of dawn. Sometimes I even see the sun rise which is pretty but this mumma does not do mornings.
Coffee! That’s how most mums start their day in order to get through another jam packed schedule with zero sleep. Either that – or you just really love and appreciate your coffee.
With a 2yo and 3yo at home, I’m finding every reason I can (cue incessant toddler tantrums) to venture to the supermarket less.
So any product that means I can DIY-it at home instead of another trip to Woolies… is my kind of thing!
