Basketball bullies

By | November 25th, 2018|P for Positive|

I love running. That's for sure. I run everywhere. And I also love playing footy. But when footy was over at the end of winter, I needed something else to keep me active.  Mum and Dad said I couldn't just sit around all spring and summer, so I had to decided what else to do.  [...]

Dressups and differences

By | November 25th, 2018|P for Positive|

Every year it's the same. Jack O'Brien has a dressup party for his birthday. And this year is no different. He says it's because it's right near Halloween and people like dressing up, and should have a costume ready anyway. But I think it's just because his Mum is a drama teacher at the local [...]

I guess you could say I lucked out when it comes to birthdays.... I have to share it with two really important dudes in a kid's life - Santa and Jesus. Mum used to tell me that I was 'soooo lucky' to be born on Christmas day. She told me that I was 'super special' [...]
