Parent of one since September 2008 with no plans to repeat the process (..it HURT!) Graduated with a first class Web based systems BSc and now working as a part time lecturer at West Herts College in Watford Herts UK - though if I win the lottery I'll become a student again in a heartbeat; this time I'd do a crafting course for the pure pleasure of learning ;0)

(..and I'll make wordpress sites as a hobby and go to all the blended learning and social media conferences for FUN instead of work..)

Our 4yo loves Thundercats,Superted, She-ra, Gummi bears and Spiderman and his amazing friends; they laugh at nursery to hear her explaining to her friends that Hordak is the mean baddie and Adora is going to turn into She-ra with her magic sword to stop him from being mean to people. Her favourite question is "did you watch this when you were little?" The ensuing conversations are a subtle way of talking about important concepts and I always try to pick up something from a program to reinforce key messages with her; eg. pointing out nasty comments can draw attention to avoidable behaviour
