Hi & welcome to our May issue! Term 1 school holidays done and dusted and just like that we are back into the routine of school. With that comes the start of the footy season and living in a house with 4 boys (hubby included!) equals loads of footy talk - winning, losing, footy cards, ladders - the list goes on! Being so outnumbered I have to admit “if you can't beat them - join them” So goes Blues!! May is also the month we celebrate all of us amazing Mums! Yes - it is the hardest job I have ever done; long hours, playing referee & bouncer multiple times a day, sometimes terrible working conditions, days without a break and running on coffee after very limited sleep... But like all of us I wouldn’t change it (ok maybe some more sleep would be good!) For me the best parts are the giggles from our boys playing together, the chats in bed when they are drifting off to sleep, the looks on their faces when they master a new skill and the out of the blue “I love you Mum”. It’s these times that make it all so worth it! In this months “Kids Corner” there are some vouchers for the kids to decorate and complete as a gift for a Happy Mother’s Day - because we deserve it! I think you might like what you can redeem your vouchers for - I’m even thinking I might make some extra copies! As always I hope you enjoy this months magazine and I wish all Mums a Fantastic Mothers Day filled with love, laughter and something sweet!
