Why Everyone Should Have Kids

Kids change your perspective on the world

Before my wife and I found out we were expecting, we were world travelers and success seekers. We spent our time and energy attempting to discover and, to an extent, defy the world. When our first child was born, we held her in our hands and became servants to something much greater. Indeed, the entire world was...

Remy is amazing, has a tooth now, and a second coming through.. he is crawling and getting into everything. he laughs a lot, a very happy baby. He isn't sleeping all night yet which is frustrating, but I'm always waking up to check the baby monitor any way so it doesn't really matter. I wish we could co-ordinate waking times though.

G'day everyone, I'm new in Australia, and wants to know how to protect my son (3 years old) against the sun?    

Have you guys set up any rules for your kids, when they are out playing in the sun? How do you know when your kid needs to get out of the sun, is there any way to monitor this?    

Cheers everyone :smile:  


Scans and other business

Ohai all,

Today I had a HSG scan and it was pretty awful but very worth it. Apparently all my tubing is nice and clear which I was rapped about! And apparently you have a higher chance to fall pregnant after the scan because it cleans any blockages, so here's hoping!

Last day of Clomid tomorrow for this cycle, looking forward to seeing if I...

Tips for flying with kids Originall featured in www.togetherweroam.com

Beach and Sun Shelters

I'm looking for a decent sun shelter that's easy to use and carry with all the other bits we take to the beach for our new-born and toddlers - seems most are too small or blow away like umbrellas.
We've used one of those pop open polyester shelters but it overheats in no time and unpleasant for our baby.

Has anyone used the Australian designe...
