WEare the Petri family. Oliver, Kimberley and our three gorgeous children. We live in the beautiful Bay of Plenty New Zealand and we started this blog as a way to reconnect with our family after life has thrown us a few curve balls we noticed the effect this had on our parenting and children. SO we decided it was time to do something about it and put our family and creating positive memories back at the top of the priority list. Whilst exploring this blog you will find parenting from a mother and fathers perspective, educational content and provide creative ideas for parents and their children in different environments may it be at home, in the car, out shopping, on a trip and even on the playground.
“Have too many kids at home and it’s a rainy day, what do I do”? How can I make it more fun while keeping my sanity alive? This is just an example of what we aim to share with you.
Kimberley is an early childhood teacher, she was always very passionate about her job at empowering child in their learning and development journies constantly trying to keep learning fun by coming up with new songs, stories, activities and fun ways to keep children engaged. She now looks after her 3 kids and as a stay at home mum and wants to share her passion with everyone else through this blog.
Oliver is currently a tennis coach, personal trainer and entrepreneur. He has coached kids of all ages for more than 10 years, has a strong fitness background and is all in all a very driven individual. With meeting Kimberley in 2008 and the arrival of his first born Skylar Phoenix in 2009 his life transformed from world traveler to family dad. Whether its the reflection of two worlds, the journey of a semi professional tennis player or the life of an entrepreneur, Oliver would love to share his views and provide some hopefully useful information to others.
