HOT: Play Again at Environmental Film Festival Melbourne 2012

One of the mums from my mothers group is a committee member for the Environmental Film Festival Melbourne. This year, hospital thanks to her efforts, cialis there will be a Mum and Bubs session of one of the films which is particularly relevant for those with kids. Children these days are more likely to play […]

HOT: ArtPlay Bubs, Artplay, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

I don’t know about you, but even though I’m staying at home and only have one child, I actually don’t think I dedicate much time to one-on-one fun with NKOTB. She has to just fit into my schedule and workload during the day, which often means leaving her on a mat or the rocker with […]

HOT: Classical Babes – Music of the Romantic Era, Melbourne Recital Centre, 31 Sturt St, Southbank

NKOTB has been fed a steady diet of classical music since she was in utero. Not because I necessarily think that listening to Mozart will make her more intelligent or help her get better grades, but basically because I have become an Old Person. The kind of Old Person who can’t keep up with and […]

Baby Bunting Guest Post + Giveaway!

We have to admit that we were quite chuffed when baby brand Baby Bunting asked us to write a guest post for their Facebook page as part of a series called “The Nappy Diaries”. The guest posts are all written by young parents to share their experiences with the Baby Bunting Facebook community. Previous topics […]

HOT: Baby Sign Language and Australian Baby Hands

Language and literacy are issues that Tim and I are very interested in as parents. For years before we were at the stage of having children we were buying kids books for our future progeny. Both Tim and I are keen readers (though book-reading has sort of fallen by the wayside for me) and we […]

HOT: The Art of the Brick, Federation Square, Melbourne

For a grown woman, I get inordinately excited by Lego. Witness me lining up whilst 8 months pregnant to get into Brickvention, Australia’s premier Lego fan convention. So as quickly as you can say ‘Lego Technic’ I hit the purchase button for tickets to The Art of the Brick, an exhibition of large-scale Lego sculptures by Lego […]

HOT: Pregnancy, Babies and Childrens Expo – Free ticket offer

When I was  six months pregnant with NKOTB, Tim and I ventured to our first ‘baby’ event – the Melbourne Pregnancy, Babies and Childrens Expo. It was held in the massive Melbourne Exhibition Centre and really worthwhile for us in terms of being able to suss out baby products and suppliers in one place at […]

HOT: Mums and Bubs movie sessions, Palace Westgarth, 89 High Street, Northcote

I love going to the movies. Before NKOTB, I would go to the movies on average every 2-3 weeks and during the Melbourne International Film Festival, sometimes twice a day. While one mother of my acquaintance has successfully smuggled her newborn baby into a cinema, I am too scared to do that – so Mums […]

HOT: Lego and Brickvention 2011

Sunday morning. 9:45am. The line was longer than anything I’d ever seen for the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Melbourne Film Festival, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra or any other event held at the Melbourne Town Hall. The event this time? Brickvention 2011, Australia’s premier Lego fan convention! I love Lego. I spent many hours in my room as […]

HOT: Children’s Art Shows

JJ and I are keen to ensure that NKOTB grows up with a similar passion for the arts and culture as we do. I’ve already written about my plans for training the NKOTB to be a passionate supporter of the Brisbane Bears. However, our ambitions are as broad as they are high so we’re always on […]
