Slippery little suckers
Speaking to Now To Love, Zoë said that her kids either shower or bath together of an evening, but it rarely goes off without a hitch.

Buying gifts for babies and young kids can suuuuuck. It’s a minefield of taste, superfluous but nice looking stuff, and shit they already have. (Books aside. Books are ALWAYS a good gift.) We made Gro-To sets to make gifting babies and children easy. There’s a few, but I will be frank and say the Little Squirts set for newborns (and mum), with the sunshiney terry toweling travel bag, and the Big Kids set with the ‘80s red lunchbox and stickers, are the raddest. As a parent, if someone gave me that, I would be stoked. (As a me, I would giggle cos I am pretty well stocked up with Gro-To.) Anyway. Next time you need a gift for a young human, think of us. Or Pete’s Pony Emporium. But mostly us. 🐴 grotoskincare.com @grotoskincare

If anyone needs some jet lag, we’re hoarding it all at our house. Sorry. But as all Aussies used to 36-hour transit marathons know: IT’S WORTH IT. What a joyful, dense cluster of memories, what a magnificently lucky way to bookmark our children’s lives at this age; what a sensational amount of pasta we consumed. Thank you for coming along to Italy and Greece (“putting up”) with us. I feel violently inspired and must immediately get started on another book. Good day.
Bad dream buster
It’s not quite clear whether the usual requests for drinks of water, “one more cuddle” play out after that, but what we do know is that there are no monsters under beds in this house. That’s because Zoë cleverly invented an anti-monster spray – it’s called Bad Dream Buster – and Sonny takes charge of it with gusto.
“He mists their room each night, very strategically, to ensure all hidey holes for boogeymen are taken care of, with particular attention to his and his sister’s pillows. He even sprays our room sometimes, which is cool, cos it’s like we have a live-in Ghostbuster.”
That IS cool.
