Initially formed by a group of mums in 2013 who had some leftover, unused nappies, The Nappy Collective has grown across Australia and to date, has collected over 473,000 nappies and redistributed them to families in need.
How amazing is that!?
I am always blown away by the drive of people to make a difference, and how something so simple like spare clean nappies can truly help someone. Continue reading
Fussy Little Bastards – what a freaking awesome name for a blog! I’ve recently found Beck’s blog, Fussy Little Bastards, and it has fast become one of my favourite reads. I can totally relate to Beck’s humour, she has fantastic recipes that kids WILL eat, and I have realised I am not alone in the struggle to get kids to eat food! I loved her post, A guilty mum’s manifesto for fussy eaters, so much, Beck has happily come on board as a guest post blogger just for you! Continue reading

I can go to the bathroom by myself. This is awesome. Normally at home, I’m accompanied by my toddler, whether I like it or not.

Parents will always feel the pressure to exercise when they have kids. Keep fit and healthy. Lose weight. Set a good example. I totally understand this.
But you don’t need a gym membership when you have a toddler. You have your very own personal trainer already. Continue reading
This is so true! This popped up in my news feed the other day and I just had to share it with you.
How else would you describe life with a toddler?
Make sure you’re following Life, kids and a glass of red on Facebook for more giggles and snippets of silliness – just like this one!
“Today there is a high chance that the slow moving system building off the coast will cross land, leaving a trail of destruction in it’s wake. Along with damage to property, showers are also possible.”
