Brought to you by Bloom It was hot. I didn’t have a care in the world. Up and down I went. Around and around. In these: Perfectly safe were they not? I glided on these things. Up and down the path in our backyard, spinning around the Hills Hoist a few times until I built up enough speed to zoom back down the path which had just the right amount of bumps to...

This post is brought to you by Warner Bros. Guest Post by Steve East Hi! My name is Steve. I’m 34 years old and I watch cartoons. Yes, cartoons. In particular cartoons based on comics. Superhero comics. So when the folks at Warner Bros. Australia offered up a choice of DVDs to review for the blog and I saw Son of Batman on the list I  naturally told Ange, ‘That one’. It’s a tough gig but someone’s got to do it. I’d argue that many people are familiar with Batman and his backstory, after all he has been fighting crime in Gotham...

This is a review I must confess. When I was pregnant with Tom I packed some things in my hospital bag that I never even considered when I had Jeremy. Silly, silly things. I wanted to feel good after birth (see? Silly already!) and I was given one of those awesome free makeup bags that you get when you spend too much money on Clinique foundation. It was filled with mini cleansers, moisturisers, mini perfume etc. After Tom was born I did not get to feed him. I was so dazed I just went with whatever they said. I showered, dressed, made my...

Before I had kids, I had a phobia of babies. I grew up as the youngest in the family and my cousins were either only slightly younger or much older than me. I didn’t grow up with memories of holding babies and I had absolutely never changed a nappy. Ever. Eventually you reach an age in your life where people around you start having babies. It was terrifying. I avoided holding babies at all costs! I detested when people asked if I ‘wanted a hold’. Seriously, I didn’t. But I said yes, held baby awkwardly, counted...

This is a review of the LeapPad Ultra If you have been following the blog for a while you would know that I have a strong relationship with the PR for LeapFrog. They have given us countless opportunities and learning toys for both the kids. They have taken the time to get to know each of my children, to read the blog and to know my opinions on using technology as...

In collaboration with Super A-Mart Don’t craft areas get so messy! I am all for making a mess while crafting. There is no other way! But I like things to be easily accessible and inviting before we start. I don’t find a big mess inviting. It’s amazing how much more the kids play with toys if they are easy to reach. They’re accessing a variety...

I haven’t been a good parent. Or that’s what I’ve been thinking for a while now – at least a month. There are things going on around here that is making us SO busy. So busy, in fact, that I am chasing my tail most of the time. There is no downtime. No break. Just fleeting moments to eat, sleep, smile, tickle the baby. They are so quick, these...

I received a free family pass to attend Santa’s Magical Kingdom but was under no obligation to write this review. Santa’s Magical Kingdom is a sensory explosion. There’s no doubt about that. As soon as you enter you really do feel like you are in a magical world of sorts. The visual elements are amazing – so much colour, lights, rides and decorations....

So this has been simmering for quite some time. I just need to get it out there – for the non-bloggers, the readers, family and friends…and for myself. There seems to be this underlying thing that I just ‘get stuff’, and in the blogging community, there’s a little bit of ‘selling your soul’ feelings if you work with brands....

Tom didn’t want much for his birthday. And it wasn’t even a question that he have a party to do with all things cars. His passion for them hasn’t waned in over a year! We kept things simple, and I pulled out the easiest bits and pieces from Pinterest to call my own! Here they are. 1. Traffic Lights These are so, so easy and very effective. I popped...
