Phew, we made it. The end of another ridoncliously* crazy year spent raising little people. Pat on the back to every parent out there. You rock!
I must admit, I’m starting summer with a sense of inner conflict this year. I’m super-excited for some family time and a couple of mojitos, but I’m also dreading the coming weeks of sibling rivalry.
I love love love the excitement of Christmas but, like most families and small business owners, the budget is veeeeery tight right now. I worry about how we can give the kids’ memory banks a summer to cherish, whilst also trying to pay bills, work, wash and feed the tribe every day. Being grateful for what we do have certainly doesn’t make spinning all those plates less challenging. Yep, there isn’t a time that I feel the ups and downs of the parenting rollercoaster more than the start of summer.
Well, for all those parents doing the juggle over the next few months, our Summer issue is here to help you through the sunny, yet sticky days ahead.
Not started your Christmas shopping yet? (Me either!). Our Christmas Gift Guide on is here to help tick off those list, crammed with gift ideas for kids of all ages. To keep you feeling fabulous, we have a bunch of tips on being kind to your tummy through the festive period. And our What’s On pages are filled with plenty of family-friendly activities that everyone will love.
For those secretly counting down the remaining days of school holidays, we have a must-read back-to-school section. (Don’t miss the full Back to School Guide published on our website in January!)
Have a wonderful Christmas, summer and everything in-between!
