It’s the small things kids love most

Now that we are well and truly back into the school year and daily grind, it’s easy for parental guilt to sink in. We’re so busy with work, life and endless to-do lists, we’re exhausted, and playing with our kids is not always our top priority. And it shouldn’t always be, either – that’s life. But, as the single mother of an only child, I can’t help but get the guilts when my daughter asks me to play outside and I don’t have the time (or simply don’t want to). That’s when I remind myself it’s the simple things that … Read More

Three Real New Year’s Resolutions for Real Parents

News flash: New Year’s resolutions don’t work! I don’t know about you, but I’ve set them for myself in the past and failed every time. In fact, research says that less than 10% of New Year’s resolutions are actually achieved. So, what am I doing writing about New Year’s resolutions if they don’t work? Well, as a parent, I’m wonderful at guilt tripping myself and questioning everything I do with my six-year-old mini cyclone. So, this year, I thought I’d talk about some different kinds of resolutions. Forget the January 1 promises of losing weight, exercising more and swearing less … Read More

Outdoor Christmas Activities For The School Holidays

Here in Queensland, it’s the last week of school – and for three weeks already, my daughter has been asking me what we will be doing over the school holidays! I’m also asking myself… Sadly, we will not be holidaying in Vanuatu. We also won’t be camping (too hot!), spending endless days relaxing on the beach (we live in the sticks and everywhere is on fire) or having a big Christmas do with family (they’re all interstate). I am, however, betting on winning that Gold Coast townhouse I bought a raffle ticket for, which will be drawn on Christmas Eve. … Read More

Messy play ideas for outside

Let’s face it, kids can be pretty gross. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has shrieked, “Don’t touch me don’t touch me DON’T TOUCH ME!” with steadily increasing volume at my child’s brown and sticky outstretched hands. If it’s not messy, it’s just not fun. Mud, glue, dirt, insects, feathers, sand, glitter … these are all things my six-year-old daughter loves to play with. They also have a delightful way of ending up in my handbag. And sometimes my hair. I swear I could have made my own backyard sandpit by now with the amount of sand I … Read More

Play it safe outside and beat the heat!

We are full swing into spring, but where I live in Queensland, it feels like summer already! This means my daughter (AKA the human heat bead) will FINALLY be dressed appropriately for the next six months – and I will stop getting tut-tutted whenever I take her anywhere (she refuses to wear a jumper or anything remotely warm, even when everyone else is wearing five layers of clothing and clutching hot water bottles). It also means we parents need to keep a few things in mind as our littlies play outside. Children’s bodies don’t cool down as quickly as adults. … Read More
