SSSssssSSSSS! This is a bit of an oopsie carry on from last week’s Storytime with Karen – Silly blog from last week, because silly is as silly does (and someone didn’t check the blog history before she started composing this last minute replacement post… doh)! Dear Pram Jam parents, are you feeling stressed? Overwhelmed? Need to find a way to unwind? That’s where I am at today… just a bit overwhelmed by deadlines, dates and disappointments. First of all I am gonna try my little SSS trick: Swinging, Singing, and Socialising Swinging at the park I mean! South Beach...Read More
Hello all, and welcome to yet another blog post from me! This one is a bit of a tough topic, discussing the transition from parenting as a couple to single parenting.

It has worked so stupidly well. My 9 year old told me yesterday that he’s so stuck on the whole Toilet-Teeth-Bed thing that one day he brushed his...Read More
Hello all! Well, how can it have swung around to my blog *again*? It seems trite, but the year really does seem to be buzzing past way too quickly – sigh. Today I wanted to touch on the topic of travelling with young children, the highs, the lows, the joys and the blows. I have fabulous recollections of my travels as a child with my parents… climbing mountains while carried in a backpack carrier and being blustered about by the wind on top of Bluff Knoll, freezing my toes in the ocean of the Great Australian Bite, hiking through bushland...Read More
A B C It’s easy as, 1 2 3 As simple as, do re mi A B C, 1 2 3 Baby, you and me girl! Doesn’t it just inspire visions of The Jackson 5, dancing and singing their little hearts out? Come on, let’s go on that little trip down memory lane! Ahem. Back to the seriousness of the Pram Jam with Beth post… but ahh, ermm, actually, it’s nice to take a break from the seriousness of my last blog, Little Emotions. We’ve been on quite a journey these past few months here in Coolbellup and in...Read More
