"Childhood 101 won Best Parenting Blog from the thousands of blogs nominated at both the 2011 and 2009 Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards."
"Blogging has provided me with the opportunity to work as a freelance writer (both online and off), to travel, attend and speak at a number of events, to feel a true sense of community with the wonderful readers of childhood 101, and to meet and make wonderful new friends."
"I publish a quarterly e-zine, Play Grow Learn, which features great ideas for playing with babies, toddlers and preschoolers from playful mums and early childhood teachers all around the world."
"I am currently completing the manuscript for my first, soon-to-be-announced book which will be published in 2013."
"Most importantly, I love being a mum. Our four-year-old daughter lights up our days and we look forward to a new addition in our family joining us very soon!"
