BALIRETREAT_DCGHave you ever fancied doing a mama and child bonding holiday? Preferably somewhere luxurious where mama can hit the spa/sip some wine/read and relax while the little ones are entertained? Well, we’ve got just the ticket – and it involves one of our fave spots on earth (Bali!), an amazing hotel group (Uma by COMO!) and star Singaporean enrichment organization Julia Gabriel

Screen shot 2013-05-03 at 09.06.23This special 5-day retreat for 4-9 year olds will run from the 14th – 20th June (though you can choose to attend for just a few days or even just drop in on sessions) rather than the whole week if you’re time-crunched). Named, “The Quest for Answers”, the programme is designed to celebrate children’s natural curiosity (maybe stopping them from asking you “why” all the time!).

Screen shot 2013-05-03 at 09.05.49There are 2.5 hours of drop-off activities each day, involving drama exercises, problem-solving challenges and arts-based sessions; there will also be workshops to encourage kids to collaborate and communicate effectively. For parents there are two “Discover Your Child” talks given by senior Julia Gabriel teachers who will share their proven techniques for bringing up engaged, interested and self-motivated children (hands up who’d like one of them!). In addition to all this, you can head on a Rice Paddy and Volcano Sighting Excursion with your munchkin, or take part in one of the fab Uma activities, like visiting a Balinese home.

Screen shot 2013-05-03 at 09.06.47While junior is being entertained (and enriched bien sûr) parental units can enjoy restorative therapies at the COMO Shambala Retreat, or venture out on culinary, cultural or shopping excursions to Ubud and its surrounding villages. Another fun idea? One or two nights during the week, children will take part in an “pyjama camping” evening activity, so mama can dine peacefully at Uma (or romantically with Daddy) guilt-free! Got more questions? Check out the FAQ section on the Retreat’s site.

Rates start from USD1600 for one parent and one child. Spaces are limited, so you’ll need to get in quick to book your spot. Register via the website or email [email protected]  for further details.

It's date night with my beau! Meet the love of my life, the hero to my kids, my best friend and a great restauranteur (if I do say so myself) @beppedevito ⠀
Being parents to four active boys is challenging at times. It's so busy juggling their activities and making sure harmony is just right at home. Tonight we get to dress-up, share a glass of wine and unwind for the week. ⠀
Cheers everyone! #sassymamalynn⠀

Grab a cuppa for this read! We chat with British insta-sensation @madeleine_shaw_ about her pregnancy, life as a mama and her stunning healthy cookbooks. Madeleine shares how she juggles running a successful business, looking after her 5 month old baby Shay and making time for yoga and healthy eating. Madeleine is the first to admit that
Did someone say CHEESE?⠀

MFFs... Mama Friends Forever. It's always a daunting thought becoming a mom for the first time. And if it weren't for all the other moms you meet along the journey of motherhood, how would you ever survive. Love, support and just someone to listen to, and share that glass of wine with is worth millions!⠀

Sometimes you want to hit the pause button and keep them this small for just a tiny bit longer. It's always nice to stop and have a cuddle. Cherish them always! ⠀
