Parenting Advice - My Child (not me)
So I met a really nice lady yesterday who was about 2 months off having her first baby.
We bonded over my horror stories of pregnancy, birth and parenting.
She will probably never speak to me again.
She made the rookie mistake of asking where I got my info and tips from when I was in her position.
Now, I had to be honest.
My whole parenting planning consisted of reading Kaz Cooke's Up The Duff while eating all of the things.
I was both entertained and informed. Winning!
Not convinced my prepping skills were adequate enough, #1Hubby would also covertly place a parenting magazine amongst the shopping catalogues I was addicted to flicking through while draping myself on the lounge like a beached whale.
My Child - all of the cute, plus some bona fide legitimate tips and advice.
My Child magazine gave me credible advice, tips and information back in ye olde worlde days before Google and YouTube and Wikipedia.
I felt totally responsible, flicking through the pages, whacking post-it-notes on interesting or important articles.
Mother of the year.
My Child magazine has just made the change to digital format.
And here's the best part - it is free to subscribe.
Check out this month's issue here and sign up. Because it is free. And can be done from the comfort of your lounge while wearing dayjamas and whining about how far away the remote control is and how swollen your ankles are, and while you're up dear, how about a hot milo, heavy on the milo.
Or, you know, while waiting for pre-natal yoga to start.
You're welcome for this legitimately helpful tip and not the story of how #1Nana created the first truly mobile porta cot.....
