Guess what? We are 2… that’s right, 12 issues in!!!

This only occurred to me the other day and my first thought was that’s amazing, and then my second was… why aren’t we having a party…?

Well, the truth is… we are too busy organising our children’s birthdays and working on this issue to think about our own (insert small violin)… next year!!!

This issue we grabbed a minute with one of our favourite SA women in media, Ali Clarke of ABC breakfast radio. She chats to us about the chaos that is their life (and how she wouldn’t change a thing) as well as the roles that her and her husband Matt Clarke (Crows AFLW Coach and Crows AFL ruck coach) play in raising their children.

We also meet up with a group of unlikely mates in a heartwarming story about intergenerational play and the positive changes that it’s making to the lives of the young, and the young at heart!

We also hear from Liv Williams, one of our very dear KIDDO writers, who heartbreakingly opens up about losing her mother last year, and the effects that it has had on her both mentally and physically.

We head out to a modern day chicken shop, JOYBIRD for some fingerlicking chicken, and get to step inside the amazing new Variety Children’s Zoo with incredible inclusive facilities for every child.

I hope you enjoy this issue and help us to metaphorically blow out the candles on our imaginary 2nd Birthday cake!
