Sure… it starts out innocent enough. Your little one is really into Peppa Pig all of a sudden but selecting a new episode every five minutes is driving you mental. You have a little bitch about it on facebook and some other, more experienced mums casually mention that you can play back to back eps on YouTube- these mothers are the pushers…
Winter is here….and along with Game of Thrones S7 cold and flu is here too! For some of us having one sick child could mean a whole round of sickness as each family member falls prey one after the other. So how do you stay calm while you help your kids get through their sickness?

I have two teenagers, both at the age where they are working their first jobs and earning their first pay packets. With this comes paying tax (even if it’s only the tiniest of amounts at the start). These steps are their first into the world of being an adult and they need to learn about tax – how it works, what it’s used for and why we pay it. They also need to know how to lodge a tax return. So here are 5 things you should be teaching your kids about tax… Continue reading
I was at the park last week when I overheard a gaggle of mums talking about family holidays and how much they hate to travel with kids. This particular conversation in the park had me hooked!
So… you want to be a ‘Mummy blogger’? Or an Instagram Mum!!!! You think your experience is something worth writing about, and you think you can do it 100 times better than fat Sally from down the road who already has 37,000 followers on Instagram and her own YouTube channel!!! Now, the Daily Mail would have you believe that we don’t need another ‘slummy mummy’ in our lives and that it’s perhaps shameful to be locking yourself in the pantry and downing G&T at lunchtime whilst the kids fend for themselves! But, let me tell you wannabe slummy mummy, parents need you, and in my humble opinion, the more the merrier!!!

We all know we put ourselves last a lot of the time. It’s part of being a mum. You don’t even get to go to the toilet by yourself so trying to get three hours to spend at the hairdresser can often involve strategic navigation that the military would be proud of, just to get in that chair every six months!

There is no occasion that you are able to take your inquisitive four-year-old into a waxing salon and not have the both of you come out slightly traumatised!
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.

My husband and I started trying for our first baby. I was 31 and after six months I started to panic that there was something wrong. I went to the doctor to find out what to do, we got some referrals for testing but she didn’t seem too concerned. We went on a holiday to Bali and when I returned I found out I was pregnant so we never needed to make those appointments.
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!
