I worked from home for a while, the one huge benefit for me is that I can still be a Mum too. It took a while to find my way, but then I realised the benefit of being Mum out weighed the difficult times. Discipline and organisation are the keys.

I live in the Outback of Australia and I cannot live without my fans. It's so much healthier to sleep with the fan on and not the air conditioning.

Introducing cats can so different. We had an 18 month old drama queen female and we bought in a laid back male kitten, she was mean to him, I was always rescuing him, it's ended up he is much bigger than her and that solved that problem. My big boy takes along time to get mad, but sometimes she gets him going and she pays for it and I have to save her, not very often thankfully.

Around 6 years ago I introduced a rescue cat to the mix, my drama queen female hated her, they would sleep together, but they always hissed at each other, sadly the rescue cat passed away last year suddenly. My drama queen has put weight back on and seems happier.

I wonder if anyone else has any experience with their children and the loss of a close pet. It's only 4 months since the cat passed away and my daughter who is 6 and consider the cat one of her friends still talks about her all the time and this weekend I found her crying in her room looking at photos of the cat, it's so heartbreaking.........we let her talk about the cat, we put some photos in lovely frames, we have a cross in the yard for the cat, we bought a necklace for her to remember her, she draws pictures and takes them for show and tell and she talks about the cat.................there is one thing I cannot do, is get another cat, due to my drama queen cat.

Anybody else experience such grief from a young child for such a long time?

That is so cute. I still have my black and white little TV from when I was a kid - many moons ago. Hubby still wonders why I have kept it. Because it's cute and it has a clear picture.

Bought a house, moved in 2 months before the baby came. I worked in real estate for years and never understood why all these pregnant purchasers could be bothered moving house at such a time in their lives. But I sure understand it now. When my baby was 3 months old I got the clean out bug and decluttered my house from top to bottom and had a fantastic garage sale. Wish I could get that bug back again!

I toally love this house. The home owner Jen is very talented. The painting of the nursery wall is fantastic. The best house tour. Gorgeous looking inside and the style of the house outside is fantastic. Very jealous ! :)

We got one for my daughter when she was 18 months old. She loved it, had trouble getting her to go to sleep the day we bought it, she ended up throwing herself out of her cot late in the evening because she wanted to play in it. She's nearly 6 and still plays with it. We even found some names plates that look like miniature car plates. I think we will keep it for a while. One of the best toys we have ever purchased.

My daughter's kindy did this - but the blue and purple paint still stain. White spirit was the only thing that would get most of it out, must be cleaned straight away and aired out.

Nicoles is the best. I have no idea how she painted that porch when she was 9 months pregnant, I couldn't even tie up my shoelaces!

I put my hand up to say I'm very much to blame for my daughters messy room - She has toooooo!!! much stuff.

Every three months we pull her room apart and clean it out, started a new rule this year, she gets very little new items, slowly we are paring it down.

Have you ever stepped on some kids toys Ouch! they hurt the bottom of your feet.

We have a big clean up day tomorrow - give me strength.

If you are about to have a baby, please for your own mental health don't buy much for them, they really don't need it. My 5 year old still goes to our kitchen items and plays with them more than her own kiddy kitchen items.

If I had my time over, I would only buy a quarter of what I have bought.

Alot less is easier for the parents to clean and for the child to clean up.
