Hello from the work week ending 11 August 2017
Our week started with a discussion about that one strange line in one of our all-time favourite Disney tunes, A Whole New World from Aladdin. Do you know the one? “Every moment red-letter.” Turns out none of us had any clue what ‘red-letter’ meant but with some swift Googling, quickly learned it means “of special significance”. Which we thought was quite lovely, really!
So we hope you’ve had many a red-letter moment this week with your whānau and continue to do so this weekend. (An Aladdin family movie night, perhaps)?
Look what we found
- Stop losing sleep over your children’s sleep – here
- 10 things my mum told me as a kid that gave me confidence as a grown-up – here
- Our job when little people are overwhelmed by big emotions – here
- “Keep your eye on the ball” – watch below!
ICYMI (in case you missed it)
- How to talk to your teen about: Alcohol and drugs – here
- Mastering the art of cultivating our kids’ creativity – here
- Learning to dad – poop, postnatal depression and the silver linings – here
- Parenting from a united front – here

And that’s a wrap!
