I'm PUBLISHED!!


I am really proud to be a part of this wonderful project - Things They Didn't Tell You About Parenting - the eBook.



In a nutshell it is:
  • heartfelt stories by 32 of Australia’s most eloquent parenting bloggers, (I do believe I am one of these 32)
  • a foreword by Wendy Harmer, one of Australia’s best loved comedians,
  • an incredibly good cause at its heart; Foundation 18, sustainably supporting orphaned and underprivileged children in Indonesia (Bali),
  • the bargain price of AUD$4.99
When I was asked by Alison Tait late last year to be a part of this project I jumped at the opportunity.  Not only is it for a great cause, but this parenting gig is so very hard and at the same time so very precious.  The stories and anecdotes that fill this book will warm your heart, move you to tears and possibly have you cowering in the corner as you get a glimpse of the future as a parent!

Things They Didn't Tell You About Parenting is a must read for all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and those who are contemplating parenthood.    It is real, it is true and the stories are straight out of the homes and hearts of everyday people.

To be included in a book with these 31 parents and writers is beyond exciting for me.   It is an absolute honour.

For less than the price of coffee and cake in a cafe, you can buy this book, make yourself a cuppa and sit on the verandah or by the heater and read some amazing parenting stories.  You will also be helping 12 beautiful orphaned Indonesian girls enjoy some of things our children will never be without - food, shelter and education.  I couldn't think of anything nicer.
