HOT: Children’s Week Picnic, Werribee Park, Gate 2, K Road, Werribee

When I was small and asked my parents why there was Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day but no Children’s Day, their reply (which they must teach at Parenting 101) was ‘Every day is Children’s Day.’ So I was quite surprised to discover that there was such a thing as Children’s Week. In fact, it’s a […]

HOT: This [Baby] Life, ArtPlay, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

I’ve mentioned the great programs at ArtPlay before and today we attended a lovely concert called This [Baby] Life. It’s Australia’s first performance work for 4 to 18 month old children and has been developed by a group of Adelaide artists headed by Sally Chance. What made this concert unusual was that for certain segments […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]
