Our Children are like Butterflies
The other night I attended an information night at our school for the year five class who have started a program to help build resilience in our children. The program is called ‘Friends for Life’. Personally I believe that this program should be adapted to start in the early primary years, as it is a program that helps kids work through anxiety, frustration, fear, feelings of depression and also how to be a friend. Well, ‘how to be a friend’ is more of a side benefit to knowing how to deal with these other issues. I am a true believer in that it takes a number of sources to…
Jaden’s Birthday….the Birthday Month.
Last Saturday was Jaden’s second birthday, and it is a family tradition to have cake. I’m no cake boss, but I do have a fetish for decorating cakes, so as you can imagine Jaden’s birthday cake was not going to be two cakes slapped together with cream and jam – or sprinkled with icing sugar. Not that there is anything wrong with such a cake! Jaden loves dinosaurs so Bethy and I set out to come up with a simple concept for a little boy who loves dinosaurs. Last Saturday we celebrated two birthdays – Jaden and Charlotte. Charlotte is 8 days younger than Jaden. Charlotte isn’t into…
Get your Christmas Spirit on!
My life can’t get any busier at the moment. It’s just not possible. It’s the last week of school and I am so incredibly excited that the holidays are almost upon us. I can smell the holidays and I am very excited! Three O’Clock Thursday afternoon can not come fast enough. Bring on the school holidays is all I can say! Have I mentioned that I love school holidays!? As the school year comes to a close the Christmas season starts. Not sure why I feel the two are different, but for me the Christmas season can only start when school is finishing. Maybe its just…
Is it financially viable to be a Stay at home Mum?
Over the last 12 months I have asked myself time and time again if it is still financially viable for Australian family’s to have a Stay at home parent? There are a number of blogs and websites which are rich in advice, and give tips and tricks about how to save money in many different ways (www.simplesavings.com.au), but what if you feel like you have exhausted all your options? What if you have gone through the budget and culled everything down to the last cent? What if you have changed service providers to get the better deals, but still you can’t afford to have a lifestyle. Its all work…
Thank God its Friday, and making the most of where we live!
I am a naughty mummy. I am completely and disgracefully guity of…..taking for granted the beauty to which I live. Right now I am sitting here at Gloria Jeans enjoying the outdoors, enjoying the view, watching the people wander by! I wander how many of these strangers, in their different levels of attire live their lives here on the Coast, or are they visitors from other areas? I wander how many live on the coast here, and how many take it for granted? Like me? I actually feel bad that I don’t make it a priority to enjoy the Sunshine Coast as much as I possibly can – I even…
Looking for some good luck – anyone seen it?
I am not exactly sure why I dislike Nambour, but I do! There are a few good op shops up there, but overall, its a hot and stinky little town. Sorry if you live in Nambour – not trying to offend you – particularly if you like it or love it – everyone has an opinion – and I am not a fan of Nambour. Now, I am sure that you are probably wanting to ask me why I had to go to Nambour – especially since I am not a fan? Well, Dion’s little red car broke down up there and I had to go…
