We were thrilled to be interviewed over there!!! If you are visiting for the first time then we would like to show you around our website just a little bit… And if you are one of our loyal readers then pop over there and see what I had to say to their questions:

  1. What have you enjoyed most about being a parent so far?
  2. Are there any challenges you’ve found which have been particularly tough?
  3. What would you do over, if you had the chance?
  4. Do you have any tips for pregnant moms?
  5. Any tips you have for new parents, based on your own experiences?
  6. What characterizes a “good parent”, and would you call yourself one?
  7. Do you feel you have enough support?
  8. And the se7en + 1th question:

  9. Your craziest parenting moment? Why not share it with us?

Meanwhile for the longest time our blog has needed a Welcome page… to tell folk what we are about and how to find and use the resources on our website… So here is a mini-tour of almost four years of blogging and finding your way around about a bazzilion posts:

  2. Se7en +1 Collections: We have been blogging for a few years now and to make it easier to navigate past post I gathered our posts into “Se7en+1” Collections… the big bright buttons on the left hand side. We usually post se7en days a week and pop a new post into each collection each week – so always updating, always new goodies to read and yet easy to access all that has past!!!

    Oh that was awesome! Really liked ‘smile and wave’ – I still have to use that one!!! And the plumbing event! I had to laugh! (Though I am not saying it was necessarily funny at the time …)
    Lots of love!

    Hay Corli!!! How are you on the far side of the world!!! I do indeed have a plumber in the making – I tell you the crazy things they do… sometimes you have to just sit on the floor and laugh along!!! Hope you have a brilliant day!!!

    the plumbing did make me laugh!! I’m surprised he could unscrew those tight screws 🙂

    Well Irene, they weren’t quite as tight as you might imagine… try it!!! But they sure are a mission to get back in place… The mother person has become a super-hero plumber on account of this child… lighting up washers and pipes and catching spillages … I tell you, never a dull moment!!! Hope you enjoy the long weekend!!!
