Digital Parents August Blog Carnival…. Finally :)

 

Digital Parents Blog Carnival

Welcome to the Digital Parents August Blog Carnival!! It feels like forever since I put my name down on the list to host the blog carnival and ironically, I’m hosting for a month where everything has gotten in the way of my own blogging, so I can’t even link up one of my own posts :(

So, get comfy. Grab a cuppa and a snack. Sit back and enjoy reading these awesome blog posts from July 2013.  I’m sure you will laugh, cry, learn and say “doh” a few times before you get through the list.

Enjoy
