Oh hey you lovely, fabulous, wonderful peeps! Hope you’re having a super awesome day. This morning I was doing the usual school run. Mr 5 was riding his bike and I was running with Mr 1 in the Croozer. I’ve only recently started letting Mr 5 ride across quiet roads. For busy ones, I still… Continue reading Why So Serious… Actually, Impatient.
We’ve all done it. Commented on someone’s pregnancy in what we thought was a fairly innocuous way, or, gasp, some have made the disastrous faux pas of congratulating someone incorrectly. Now there’s a pregnant pause… So, what is it about pregnancy comments? Honestly, the best policy is just follow the pregnant person’s lead. And in… Continue reading To comment or not to comment…
Working at home with the kid(s). Sounds good in theory doesn’t it? Manage your own hours, be your own boss, start an empire… Then all those lofty ambitions come crashing down when you realise you do have a boss.

This weekend heralds a fairly momentous event. In my world anyway. It will be the first time in three years that I have spent a night away from Mr 3. By choice that is. There was that one time I was in and out of hospital for five days with what turned out to be… Continue reading Two (Announcements) for the Price of One…
So here is one of the great mysteries of the parenting world. The amount of sand one small(ish) toddler shoe can collect and hold. Seriously. Mr 3 and I do quite a bit of hanging out at the beach and parks with sandpits. I’m actually surprised there is any sand left at any of these… Continue reading Sandy Shoes
Upfront: today’s post is a bit of a rant. An important one, but a rant nonetheless.

Yes, you! Wash your hands!
