Digital Parents Blog Carnival July 2011

As you might already know, I’m a member of the Digital Parents forum, which is a great place for parent bloggers to get together & talk about all things blogging & social media. Once a month though, Digital Parents hold a Blog Carnival where members can submit their best posts from the previous month to share their blog with people that might not otherwise have seen them before.

This month I’m hosting.

So put up your feet & have a read of some great blog posts by the parents of Australia…

From My Mummy Daze (Fiona)
Sleeeeep. Sweet sleep.
Do you remember when sleeping-in was something that just happened? Now, with little people who don’t understand sleeping through, let alone sleeping in, we have to work a special routine to get a good extra 30 minutes of shut eye (if that). Here’s how…
