Unfortunately for us we only discovered the magic of the SmartTrike on baby #4. This magical invention would have served us well for all of our babies. The quality is a lot better than another brand we had bought for our second (which was subsequently used for 2 months because it was too hard to [...]
FREE (yes free) Local Adelaide Events you will want to attend in 2019
Now that the silly season has finally begun to attend I have found some time to reflect on the amazing local events that have been held over the Christmas period. Whilst it is a little late advertising anything now (obviously the big man wont be back for another 12 months) I think it is great [...]
Travelling with kids. Tips for keeping them alive and you sane.
We recently did a round road trip from Adelaide to Noosa. With 4 kids under 6. In a minivan (with a roof rack just to add coolness). In 2 weeks. Dan and I prepared for the worst and do you know what? It actually turned out to be one of our most amazing holidays. I [...]
President of the Parent Committee
First of all I would love to acknowledge all the parents, guardians, grandparents friends, teachers and whoever it may be that helps anyone with school age children. Your support, no matter how small you feel it may be, never goes unnoticed. Ever. My eldest, Noah, started school in January this year. To be precise January [...]

When does “mummyness” kick in?
Lately I have been wondering when does the 'mummy' skills kick in? You know the ones that not only your mum but your friends mums and then your grandmothers all have in the bag? Even some of my friends have acquired these skills when they entered the world of motherhood but I seem to be [...]
The many seasons of parenthood
So yesterday was a terrible day. It started with me coming into a lounge room that had literally been painted with weetbix and blueberries. I screamed so loudly that I was sure the neighbours would have called the police. The thing is Scout became upset and remorseful. Margot could not have given a shit. Seriously [...]
“Maternity Leave is great, but…”
To be honest prior to having my first baby, and even throughout my first pregnancy, I thought I would be a stay at home mum until my youngest had started school. Then I had my first baby. It was then that I realised that I didn’t think that I would be able to do it… [...]
