With a firm belief that playing is beneficial to a child's social, cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being, our blog is written to provide education to parents, carers, grandparents etc about the benefits of play for the children in their lives. Every one of our blogs is written with a great passion and drive for early learning and how important this is in each child's life. We also work very hard to source beautifully crafted quality wooden educational toys to facilitate important developmental qualities in early childhood.

NoClothesNoShoes (NCNS) is back for 2012 because... I just can't be trusted.I survived 2010 not buying clothes and shoes, but 2011 saw me spiral into my usual uncontrolled spending habits.Things are desperate. I need to save money otherwise I won't be able to pay the school fees. so in 2012, not only will I not buy clothes and shoes, I won't buy teapots, mass produced Chinese urns or all the other stuff I insist on filling my small house with. I buy frivolous things all the time and I wonder why I'm still in the ranks of the working poor.Can I make it through another year? Will you join me? Honestly, it is a very cathartic experience. No, really it is...

I am a lawyer and a stay at home mum bringing up three adorable children under five in these precious early years on Planet Baby. We've recently moved back to Hobart after 11 years in Sydney to raise the children and spend more time with family. This blog is about the funny things littlies do and what inspires and keeps me sane while I am living on Planet Baby. I hope you enjoy it!
Living with Little People is about ���creating a family home.��� A space that goes beyond accommodating your family and actually accentuates the life you live together. A space that reflects all its occupants, both big and little.
When You're Under 30!I must admit, there was a sense of relief to the finality of the birth of Little Mango 3 (I've decided to use these somewhat cute, a little bit disrespectful, yet ultimately safe ways of describing everybody - there's also Little Mangos 1 & 2, not to mention myself and Mrs Mango).Although a somewhat shaky start - a tense moment and an overly blue baby, brought back to colour by an amazingly fast and calm obstetrician - a blur of seconds as several things happened that I had no control over. For a father, I've always found, it's a very hard thing to make a very specific connection before birth as it will always be an external relationship for us - and at the moment when all else stops and your heart is captured again by another amazing creature, to have that stripped back and replaced with heartbreaking fear is something..... It certainly makes you realise just how much this new being means to you, even though you've only just laid eyes on them - another surreal feeling - loving someone beyond words without having seen, heard, spoken to or had any real idea about before that moment. They are a blank canvas, and you appreciate them for everything they are and ever will be - I know it sounds familiar (everyone says this about their kids) - but when it happens to you, the commonality and yet complete particularity of that event to you gives you this instant sense of the universe. Amazing!So Mango 3 ties the bow nicely. We are now a family of five. At 28. Half the people we know haven't even started trying for babies yet and we're (most very likely) finished altogether. And despite the inevitable times that everyone has where they doubt their abilities, I feel altogether confident we can handle this third installment quite well. I think as long as you think about humans as a species, how our bodies are designed and how they function, that we have evolved to be ready for parenthood young. Our species is finding it more and more difficult to conceive as we age, and we struggle to stay together as family units - yet we all have the capacity to breed and raise children early, and I believe it is just another way to push yourself, and learn amazing things about our species and life first hand. The world may have changed since my parents generation, where people had babies just out of school - we've had liberation of peoples, realisation of new ideals and new understandings of the shortness of life, the inevitability of death, and the importance to not waste a second. Many of my generation believe that means seeing everything you need to see before settling down and waiting to die. I believe that experience can be found in every step of life, every drudging day of existence, every struggle you have and moment of delight, joy, wonder and amazement. Everything teaches you something and if you cannot find the value in this moment here, then no moment will be good enough. Every moment I spend teaching my child something, teaches me something in return. It's all about perspective.... but then everything is, isn't it?
I could tell you I'm some Supermum who has it all - perfectly manicured nails and sex 6 times a week - but I'd be LYING! Instead I'm a crazy chick who takes on too much and can't relax. Give me some comfy gear and a bag of snakes from the fundraising box and I'm all yours. In fact that's the way I started Mouths of Mums. It's a space where Mums can share their motherhood experiences and connect with other mothers for support, fun, friendship, advice or just a virtual pat on the back. We put you in touch with some of the newest products, services and ideas relevant to you and you tell us what you think. At Mouths of Mums, it���s all about you and it���s where your say really counts.
SquiggleMum: a mother's heart - a teacher's mind - a writer's handI am a teacher-turned-mother currently being raised by two amazing little kids. I squiggle about a range of topics regarding parenting and education. I particularly love sharing ideas about literacy, play, outdoor education and family values. Through blogging I have the opportunity to share my heart for mothering and my thoughts about learning. (Plus I get to review and give away amazing products for Aussie families!)
In this Very Respectable Parent's opinion all this new modern parenting advice is impractical and contributing to a rapid social decline. To reverse this decline parents must throw out the sticker charts and take a firm hand to the fruit from their very own loins, and more to the point, to themselves. Only by taking a good hard look at themselves can parents claw back the last shreds of respectability.
