On Friday I was lucky enough to win a copy of Nicole Avery's book Planning With Kids.
Nicole is a Mum of Five and her blog, Planning with Kids, offers lots of great ideas for organisation, play and a wide variety of other things. Given I have four kids of my own I'd (not surprisingly) preordered a copy and whilst I haven't quite read it cover to cover yet I have read enough to know that it is an invaluable resource for parents.
Many of Nicole's parenting philosophies and takes on things resonate stringly with me and my own parenting style and I will absolutely be adopting some of her ideas into our home. Starting with a return to weekly menu planning!
Nicole was also one of the speakers at Blogopolis on Saturday and she was one of my favourites. She presented a whole bunch of tech geek blogging stuff in a way that I could understand it and I have already made a few changes to my blog after listening (and taking notes) to what she had to share.
I have one signed copy of Nicole's book, Planning with Kids to giveaway to a reader. To enter leave me a comment with your best planning tip either for managing your kidlets or your life in general. For extra entries pop over and like the From Somewhere In My Imagination facebook page and/or Tweet the post.
I'll draw the winner next Wednesday night (10th August) around 10pm CST. It's Charlotte's birthday so I'll be in a present giving mood! In case you just can't wait or want to buy one for yourself (or a friend) you can order the book here.
Happy Tuesday, I'm off to the library with Miss J for toddler story time!
