What wonderful places creeks are for kids. Not really little kids but ones that are in school. They can learn so much. I believe in kids experiencing as much as possible. Not buying every damn toy and game out there for them but taking them to places where they can learn and experience the sensations. Like mud between their toes, having a bath in a crystal clear stream in the Kimberlies!! We did that when the kids were young. Went travelling around for 6 weeks and just off the Gibb river rd was this lovely creek flowing with crystal water. Nobody was around so the kids and I stripped off and had a bath!!! The kids thought it was hilarious!!! And had a ball at the same time. My son has a mate who gets all the toys etc that he could ever want. I'm not into that at all. I'd rather get on the push bike and go riding through the mud in the gravel pit with them!!! They get exercise and fun at the same time. And my children have now realised that experiences are worth so much more than the latest playstation game!

I agree Groovychic!! People often look down their noses at us because we don't give our kids everything they ask for and we don't make a big fuss Christmas, Easter or Birthday's present wise. But they are not deprived and they love "experiencing" different things in their lives. We get so much joy watching the kids when they discover something new. You should have seen their faces the first time we hatched a chick out! They had put the eggs under the hen, and watched them everyday for that 21 days. The look of amazement on their faces when they heard the peeping in the shell for the first time and then the scratching etc was amazing. You can't get that sort of satisfaction from watching unwrap something that you know the novelty will wear off in just a few weeks!!!

thats cute ally! we have only ever broought heidi one toy and it was a rattle. she gets given lots of toys- fisher price brand and she hates them. she doesnt like them moving or the sounds they make. my brother asked if he could buy her one of those new elmo's for xmas that are $99 and i told him no. to buy some toys to play outside with like a bucket and spade. she has a rock n roll elmo and she screams at it. i can happily say my daughter enjoys playing with toys such as- empty margarine containers, formula tin lids, empty cheese containers, i should just buy shares in tupperware!! its good for us that she enjoys these thigns because we cant afford to buy alot. only on special occasions like birthdays and xmas.

It is amazing what fun kids can have when they get outside and have a think about things. Mine are 9 and 11 years old. And I have been putting a ban on the playstation and computer. They can go on the pc for homework and have limited time for playstation games and pc games. The other day my son spat it because I wouldnt let him on the pc and he sulked for a bit until I suggested he get the lego out. He has heaps because my nephew handed his huge collection on to him when he outgrew it........what a deal that was!!!! Anyway he and Ash got there and played cities with it for hours! And there was no fighting!!! And the other day they made this huge cubby out of mattresses and blankets! Once they get past that whole pc and playstation or xbox thing they start to use their brain. His friends at school are always on the internet. They have mobile phones and mp3 players and anything else new to technology. Alex hasnt asked yet for those things but I figure the day will come. I try to do things with them. On the weekends we make biscuits or go for a walk in the bush to see the wildflowers. And I notice if I spend the time with them they get on so much better with each other. Limiting the pc and playstation for my son makes him a much happier person. He just cant see that at the moment. I must admit the whining after saying no he cant play on the pc or p/s is getting much shorter!!! So he is accepting it. Today it is going to be warm enough to swim in the pool so I am hoping to drag dad in there as well and we can play some games with the kids. It just makes their day when we do something all together.

haha that's so cute about the tadpoles!

Not sure about the mobile situation.. I think they are only needed if she is going to be out somewhere without you/an adult.. I got one pretty early (when I was 13) but I was going out a lot to the movies etc with friends, and no-one else had one, so everyone used mine to call their parents to pick them up!

Good luck with her.. I'm sure things will become more challenging as she enters her teen years... :lol:
